For a limited period we are offering a free HR health check, looking at the current state of your HR practices, so you can see what needs addressing.
Following on from key research that we have undertaken over the past year, which has focused in particular on HR practices in the FM sector, we have gained invaluable insight into the KPIs that high-performing organisations use to ensure their HR practices are working effectively – improving staff retention rates, reducing the number of grievances they experience, and really ensuring that effective HR improves the bottom line.
The health check will look at all these, and is broken down into three main areas – looking at your current HR function, your HR services, and your existing HR policies and procedures. The consultant who undertakes the check will take time to understand your organisation and look at how effective your HR provision is in supporting the goals and successes of your business – and will show you what you can do to improve.

What distinguishes our approach to managing employment relations and HR support is pragmatism. At Workplace Law, we respect your right to run your business the way you want to. As trusted advisors it’s our job to listen to you and help you make pragmatic decisions guided by our insight and extensive knowledge of employment relations law.
We work in partnership with you to manage risk to a customised specification agreed with you, delivered through your own corporate identity. We’re down to earth, responsive, and flexible. Above all, we recognise that every client, and every solution, is different.
The benefits of using Workplace Law for outsourced HR support have seen our clients achieve cost savings in excess of 15% and significantly reduce the number of Employment Tribunal claims brought against them. We help our clients reduce risk, improve sickness and absence rates, and ultimately deliver improved business performance.

Suzanne Jackson, HR Director, Emprise:
“Workplace Law has made a difference to the quality of the service we can provide to our staff. And because of the customised service from Workplace Law, the costs have come down.
“We’re now into the second year and we’re pleased with the level of service which is always turned around quickly with any queries being answered straight away.”
Martyn Ball, Head of HR at Akkeron Hotels:
“It’s not just telephone advice that we’ve come to rely on, Workplace Law consultants are also happy to attend our meetings in person and Jayn Bond has regular catch ups with us to discuss any HR related issues. Working with people you can trust is important to me and I value the personal relationship that we have developed with the team at Workplace Law.”
"It is great to have such personalised service; they have been very professional and have helped us to understand the law and in this way continue to provide our staff with security and a good working environment.”
“We were paying quite a lot of money to our company lawyers for HR advice and therefore this prompted me to report back to my CEO advising him of the savings that could be made by employing Workplace Law to do this in the future. I selected Workplace Law because I was very comfortable with the way Jayn dealt with situations. She explains issues in a way which you can relate to, and deals with them more efficiently than a lawyer would.”
