HR Document Review

Our initial HR Questionnaire and Report provides an indication of your companies HR Compliance - based on ACAS and CIPD guidelines. We can take a deep dive and review existing HR documentation and revise as needed to ensure compliance and best fit.

We can work with you to provide HR Policies and Procedures which support your Business Strategy & Objectives, and provide HR documentation including Employment Contracts, Employee Handbook, Performance Management Process etc.

Recruitment Projects

Recruitment starts with identifying your needs [Job Analysis, Job Description, Person Specification]. We can help you develop these documents and define your needs, then can search for suitable people, contact individuals and check interest, and provide a short list of candidates for interview.

We are different to High Street Recruitment Agencies or Boutique Consultants as we work on a cost per time spent on assignment rather than contingency % of salary. This means that we are considerably more cost effective than our competitors.

Human Capital Due Diligence

We can conduct an assessment of your companies first tier management capabilities [Assessment of Human Capital] using psychometric assessment tools [including MAP 2.0], & Development Centre methodology [including structured interviews], to produce an evaluation of individual management strengths and development areas and a commitment to implement a personal develop plan.
