HR Advice & Support
At Shawthorpe, we want you to focus on your business. We are here to support and guide you to put the correct policies and procedures in place and help you adhere to all the current legislation you need to in order to help your business run smoothly.

Conducting Disciplinary Actions
However smoothly your business is run, we know that occasionally an issue may arise with a member of staff which, if handled inappropriately, could have serious consequences for your business such as poor reputation, loss of valuable employees and potentially big fines. That’s why it is important to have expert guidance on disciplinary actions to ensure they are handled appropriately and have positive results for both you and any employees involved.
Updating Policies, Handbooks or Contracts of Employment
In any business, company policies need updating yearly as the organization changes or when new legislation comes into force. A policy may also need updating as a reaction to an occurrence. HR should always be consulted regarding these decisions. It is our job to make the official changes to policies that no longer serve your employees or company. Keeping your business up to date and compliant at all times can save you from potential legal actions as well as ensure all employees are aware of what is expected from them and where they stand on any number of issues they may encounter.
As part of our human resource solutions, company handbooks can be devised and maintained in close consultation with you and your team, along with Contracts of Employment and any communication to changes of an employee’s contract in writing.
Maintaining Employee Records
Maintaining employee records is something that is mandated by law. These records assist you as an employer to identify skill gaps to help with the hiring process among many other administrative uses. As part of employee wellbeing and emergency protocol, well-maintained employee records ensure that should anything happen, an emergency contact and any personal information needed is held for each employee. Our trusted HR consultancy services closely adheres to the latest GDPR rules and allows for the meticulous upkeep of important records.
Conducting Benefit Analysis
Whatever your industry, the ability to attract skilled new team members and keep current employees engaged is one of the best ways to stay competitive as a business. Many new recruits look at how a company displays its benefits in order to make an informed decision and may accept lesser pay elsewhere if they think they will find more attractive benefits on offer. By outsourcing HR services, you gain an industry-wide viewpoint to ensure you stay competitive in your field. As experienced recruiters, we know what the top new talent is looking for and can help your company to appear the best on the table to new recruits as well as allow you to increase employee satisfaction for current valued staff. We routinely investigate similar companies to see if their benefits are compatible and use this information to inform our HR guidance.
When growing and developing as a business, it is a smart choice to keep your best and most loyal employees with the company. Our HR solutions can provide career paths to help guide each employee to a long future within your company. We can check in periodically to further guide employees on their career paths and coming from our unique position as experienced HR and career-building specialists, know the best ways to motivate your employees to reach their full potential within your company and increase company loyalty.
Engaged employees are crucial for any business to ensure everyone is contributing towards the goals of the business. As part of our HR support services, we provide a comprehensive management plan to show you how to maximize employee potential and support the management of any employee that may be underperforming.
By utilizing our HR services you’ll have peace of mind and the assurance that your business is in capable hands, allowing you to dedicate time to other essential areas.
