HR Support Services

HR Support Services are essential to businesses looking to ensure they are treating their employees fairly, ethically and legally. At 1850 we are committed to helping businesses, both large and small, to plan and implement HR policies and procedures that are tailored specifically to them and the individual needs of their business.

Our HR Services

Our HR Services are extremely flexible and we pride ourselves upon the fact that we cater to the needs of each individual client.

Upon initial consultation we will be able to ascertain the requirements for your specific business and provide you with tailored recommendations based upon our discussion.

We provide a variety of options ranging from a pay monthly retainer based service whereby we work with you on an ongoing basis providing advice and support as and when you need it to ad hoc project based support.

HR Support Services

The services that we provide include but are not limited to the following:

Employment Law Advice HRWe keep up to date with employment law and legislation in order to give you piece of mind and provide the best possible service.  We can support with any legal enquiries you may have, however big or small.  We can also provide updates to you as part of our monthly HR service.

We can help you with all levels of disciplinary and grievance from informal complaints to formal procedures and meetings.  We can guide you through a process and provide advice remotely but also be available to attend meetings in person where this may be necessary.  We will always advise you of any risks to your business.

Employee Health & Well BeingWhether you need support managing sickness absence or looking for initiatives to improve the wellbeing of your workforce, we are here to help.  A happy, healthy workforce can really impact your business both financially and in terms of culture and performance.

Employee PerformanceManaging performance is key to ensuring your employees feel valued and engaged and in order for them to understand their development opportunities.  We can assist you with an appraisal process, managing underperformers and dealing with any capability issues.

HR StrategyDo you have a people strategy in place?  Do you know what you want to achieve?  We can help you to shape your strategy and formulate a plan for how best to achieve your people agenda.  This may include employee engagement, reviewing pay and benefits, exploring organisational design opportunities or even potential restructures.

Talent PlanningDo you know the talent spread of your organisation?  Do you have a succession plan in place for key roles?  We can work with you to review and plan this for your business to ensure you are managing your talent and planning your resources effectively.

HR Contracts & PoliciesAre your policies and procedures up to date and compliant with current legislation?  We can help you to review and update them as well as advising on and creating new policies to give optimum business impact.  We can do the same for your employment contracts and give you piece of mind that you’re up to date with changes to employment law.

Online HR System

We have partnered with two HR software providers in order to be able to offer our clients a system that works for their business. We can offer this as part of our monthly retainer services or as a standalone offering. Introducing an HR system can really shape and change the way you manage your business and helps to drive best performance. Having all your people data in one place will save time and cost on basic admin procedures as well as allowing greater opportunity for reporting and analysing data.

Contact us to discuss the systems and what they can do for your business.

Project Specific Consultancy Services

In addition to the above HR services we also provide a dedicated consultancy service which is specifically for project work or ad hoc services whereby you are looking for specialist assistance on a short term or one off basis.

We are comfortable running the whole project for you or alternatively helping and advising on certain aspects and working alongside your existing team, our flexible approach ensures that we will work within the best manner for your business.

Michael B Burgess
I worked with Claire for almost 5 years. Together we handled many difficult and varied HR cases and transition programmes. I found Claire’s support to be invaluable. Her advice is measured, balanced and often challenging. It is always given in a ‘no-nonsense’ manner, considering the individual circumstance and context of each case. Claire became one of my closest and trusted colleagues and I can highly recommend her services.
Steve Jones
I would highly recommend the services of 1850. They were a delight to work with, professional yet approachable, they made the whole process of reviewing our HR policies and documentation straight forward. A task I had been putting off for sometime was not the headache I had envisaged once they reviewed our processes and provided advice on the best way forward. We look forward to continuing to work with Claire and the team on future projects.
