So, let us work in partnership with you to help guide you through your employment issues at work, from policies, procedures and contracts right the way through to TUPE and redundancy.

You simply cannot afford to take chances with contracts at your business. They define the relationship between you and your employee and are legally binding agreements. No wonder they can prove to be such a headache.

Luckily, we can take care of all their details for you so you can concentrate on running the business. Notice periods, holidays, remuneration and start dates are second nature to us along with both express and implied terms.

So don't get tied up in knots over staff contracts - let HR Solutions Shropshire take the worry for you.

It's easy to feel as if you - and your company - is drowning in paperwork. Policies and procedures are a case in point.

Everybody in business knows they can - if drawn up properly - make a huge difference to the workplace. They provide guidance for employees and management on how to handle a range of employment issues and bring consistency and transparency to staff relations.

But drawing them up can be a huge drain on resources - and unless they are just right they can cause more problems than they solve.

So let us help you out. HR Solutions Shropshire are experts in helping implement and writing policies and procedures to ensure they are a perfect fit for your company and one less thing to worry about.

A staff handbook is one of the most important documents your company will ever produce.

It can help an organisation show it has acted fairly in accordance with a set of policies and procedures - invaluable for an employer facing a tribunal claim - as well as putting the company's staff policies into one document so that issues are dealt with fairly and consistently.

That's why it's vital you get it right.

We'll outline in writing the practices and procedures you want your employees to follow, as well as the company's stance on issues such as harassment, discrimination, absence and family-friendly rights.

Sometimes it can feel as if you need to be a legal expert to run a business these days.

The Equality Act of 2010 might have streamlined previous legislation regarding discrimination, but it is still a maze of legal jargon through which you will need to find your way to make your company a fair environment which complies with the law.

But there is no need to feel overwhelmed. HR Solutions Shropshire can guide you through all the red tape and make your workplace a safe place to be. Just give us a call to start the ball rolling.

Luckily, with HR Solutions Shropshire, you don't have to. We can help you focus on the mechanisms that contribute to good employee relations and introduce the most effective approaches to helping your business run smoothly.

Reward and pay are extremely important factors in the process of attracting, retaining and engaging employees.

There are a range of options available for companies to reward their staff and recognise their contribution, each with their own benefits and risks. But the most effective reward packages should be aligned with the business needs and reflect the company's values.

Call in HR Solutions Shropshire to look over your reward package and we can help you make sure it is fully in step with your business needs as well as reflecting the values of the company.

Employee benefits offer a way to motivate employees and contribute towards improving their well-being and enhancing engagement.

If you are serious about getting the best out of your business and your staff, you need to be serious about performance management.

The fundamental goal of performance management is to promote and improve employee effectiveness. It is a continuous process in which managers and employees work together to plan, monitor and review an employee's work and their overall contribution to the company.

Of course, you may have an employee who is failing to meet deadlines or just isn't cutting the mustard.

HR Solutions Shropshire can advise you on all things performance related as well as support you in difficult conversations and meetings. We can provide performance documents and make sure your policy and procedures are both sufficient and effective.

But HR Solutions Shropshire can help make sure time away from work is kept to a minimum using effective people management policies.

We can work with you to ensure you have effective absence management that supports the needs of your workforce while providing clear and consistent guidance to avoid unauthorised absence or inappropriate use of sick pay schemes.

Engaged employees will be stronger advocates of their companies and help protect the employer from risks associated with poor service levels or product quality.

At HR Solutions Shropshire, we can show you how to make sure you are doing everything possible to build positive relationships with your staff.

Let us show you the systems you can put in place to get your workplace relationships right, and you can enjoy the higher profit, revenue growth, customer satisfaction, productivity, innovation, staff retention, efficiency and health and safety performance which comes with it.

We can also assist you with writing an appraisal document and procedure.

And if you simply don't have time to conduct your own appraisals - but know just how important they are - we can do it for you, meeting staff and running the meetings on your behalf.

Good recruitment is vital for every company.

It is about finding the right people for the right roles at the right time to ensure your workforce has the relevant skills and abilities for the company's current and future needs.

Recruitment is about much more than filling an immediate vacancy. It needs to have an impact on longer-term issues such as skills development, company performance and brand.

At HR Solutions Shropshire, we understand all this. That's why we can guide you through the process and deliver a range of proven recruitment solutions to make sure you always employ the right person for your company.

Everyone likes to be trained.

It enhances skills and knowledge and helps make people feel as though they are valued within the company.

Managers play a crucial role in the development of a company, but who trains the managers?

The answer is simple. HR Solutions Shropshire.

We have a rich history in training management in all HR fields such as absence management, performance management, investigations and conducting disciplinary and grievance meetings.

Once trained, your managers will have an enormous effect on employee attitudes - commitment, motivation, and satisfaction - all of which are key in determining an organisation's business success.

It is often too easy to understate the importance of inductions.

An employee's first impression could have a significant impact on their integration into the team and their level of job satisfaction.

Meanwhile for employers an effective induction can have a huge impact on turnover, absenteeism and employer brand. Inductions are an opportunity for a company to welcome their new recruit and help them settle in.

HR Solutions Shropshire can help by writing and conducting inductions which recognise the employer brand and values and by making sure it reflects the culture of the company.
