At Shawthorpe HR Consultancy, we provide expert HR consultancy services to businesses in and around Telford. Our team of experienced HR consultants has a deep understanding of the unique challenges that businesses in the Telford area face, and we are dedicated to providing tailored solutions to help you achieve your goals.

Human Resources is a vital business function regardless of your businesses industry and size, whether it is a small to medium sized business, or a large corporation. However, many small business owners often lack the experience and knowledge to ensure that their polices are on the right side of UK employment law so many choose to outsource their HR so that they can benefit from the expert’s knowledge and protect their company from expensive employment tribunals.

Shawthorpe’s HR consultancy service is designed to offer long term HR support for your business, allowing you to get back to the important parts of running a small business. Whether you need help with recruitment, employee retention, compliance, or any other HR issue, we are here to help. Our HR consultancy services are designed to be flexible and scalable, so we can work with businesses of all sizes and in all industries.

Our range of HR services include:

  • Contract of Employment
  • HR policies such as Health and Safety, dismissal policies and grievance procedures.
  • Disciplinary procedures
  • People management and employee growth – here we can help with employee reviews and training to ensure your staff continuously improve themselves which can help create loyalty and a positive company culture.
  • Management training and other training requirements

Why should you outsource your HR?

Here at Shawthorpe, we understand for many small businesses it is important for them to keep their costs low in order for the business to continue running and many face the dilemma of choosing between internal HR and outsourcing HR. However, there are many important reasons why outsourcing HR may be the right option for you.

  • HR consultancy can be much cheaper than you might realise.
  • You can benefit from HR advice delivered by a team of knowledgeable HR experts.
  • We can recommend the appropriate HR software to ensure all of your policies, employee records and other necessary paperwork are kept secure.
  • At Shawthorpe Recruitment, we are also a recruitment agency so we can assist you with filling vacancies in your business with top quality candidates.

If your business is also quite small in the number of employees then an external HR consultant who gives you ad-hoc support when required can help to grow your business. However, as your company grows you may need even more HR support – perhaps more policies will need to be written in order to codify your company culture which we can also assist with.

Our free HR health check can help you to get started and identify the improvements that you need to make to your HR function. Here we will look at your existing documentation for recruiting, employee contracts, pay and benefits, working time regulations and performance management. We will see if your policies are compliant with current UK law and that you have the fundamentals in place to protect your business. Give us a call on 01952 236973 today to get started.
