No problem too big or small to call


As an employer, you will come across people with poor performance or time keeping, or who are guilty of serious breaches of your rules. All these people problems need handling correctly and in a timely manner. The HR Dept will make sure you have a comprehensive disciplinary and grievance policy, can carry out investigations and even be there in person to help manage meetings. When you feel like you’ve reached a dead end, The HR Dept can help you get back on track.

Investigations into Staff Misconduct

A thorough investigation into any employee misconduct or a grievance allegation must be undertaken, apart from where the situation is obvious. The investigating officer cannot be involved with any subsequent hearing and this is where using The HR Dept provides impartiality and solves the problem for smaller firms who do not have this resource in-house.

Capability Policies and Guidance

There are some employees who underperform because they do not have the necessary skills to do their job, or others who have had so much time off sick that an unfair burden is placed on the rest of the team. To handle these situations, you’ll need a capability policy and guidance on how to manage an employee back to full performance or, if necessary, out of the business.
