We'd recommend them if you have employees and want the flexibility of having access to a local HR professional on a regular basis without needing to employee someone.
Hearing about all of the good work carried out by Ishbel I recommended her to a friend who required advice regarding a dismissal claim. I can happily report back that the advice was clear, concise and made a difficult situation far easier to understand. Many thanks Ishbel.
I have used HR solutions for putting contracts in place for employees and for a couple of other issues. I have found Ishbel great to deal with and also great value - I am happy to highly recommend
Its an age-old dilemma in business. You want to recruit the best young people, but when you do - and spend a lot of money training them up - they leave without a second thought to progress their careers. And of course, all that time, effort and money spent on their development walks out of the door with them. If any of that sounds familiar you might want to consider using apprenticeships to help bridge your skills gap. They are still a popular way in to work, with 119,500 young people taking up apprenticeships in the first three quarters of 2017/18, a huge increase on the same period 12 months earlier.
Just when you think there cannot be anymore paperwork left to complete, along comes another change to pension contributions. Hopefully, you should already have made the necessary changes from the start of April. That was the date when employer contributions to workplace pensions rose to a minimum of three per cent. Making the increase should be straight forward enough but there are a number of things to bear in mind. For one thing, if you self-certify your workplace scheme you will have different minimum contribution increases, depending on how pensionable pay is calculated.
It now looks highly unlikely that the Government will hit its target of creating 3 million new apprenticeships by 2020. The National Audit Office admitted as much in its latest review of the scheme and added that the Government still had some way to go before it showed the scheme was value for money. Changes to the Apprenticeship Levy - the system which helps fund the scheme - have seen the number of start-ups fall in the last two years from 509,400 a year to 375,800, a fall of just over one quarter. So, do apprenticeships still represent a viable career choice for our youngsters - or are they more trouble than they are worth?
