The benefits of taking on Virtual HR support

There’s no doubt about it – HR can be a bit of a minefield. Whether you have one staff member, or one thousand, the list of things you need to stay on top of can often feel endless!

From the initial recruitment process through to hiring, paperwork, training, motivating, promoting, disciplining and monitoring, HR is often something that a small business is in need of help with. Oh, and not to mention staying in the loop with employment law and legislation changes too!

Alongside everything else you have to do to keep your business running, outsourcing your HR is one way to make sure you’re at the top of your game. As companies grow, it can become difficult to juggle things like employee benefits and payroll concerns but taking on a full time HR professional in house often just isn’t possible.

A HR qualified, Virtual Assitant can help you regardless of how many employees you may have and without needing a full-time staff member.

Achieving your vision

HR can help you source the best people, protect your company by ensuring you’re up to date with legislation, and make your business more attractive to employees by ensuring they’re fairly (and well) looked after.

A lot of these functions take up a great deal of time, so an extra pair of hands will often release back valuable time for other things.

Our qualified HR consultants are on hand to offer support on an ad hoc or project basis, or as retained services, in a flexible manner which means you can work in a way that suits you best.

Recruitment and Selection

Getting the right people into your business is crucial for any organisation, big or small. Sourcing, recruiting and retaining talent is essential, but it can be a big challenge for SME’s due to time and lack of resources.

We can support you by carefully creating tailored job descriptions and person specifications, placing job advertisements, interviewing and guiding the employee through induction.

This will save you huge amounts of time, but also ensure that you’re getting the best people into your business.
