After an initial meeting to discuss the job description, expectations and availability, suitable candidates were then put forward for consideration and interviews were set up. We have now employed a full time employee who has just completed her first week. Throughout the recruitment process, contact was frequent and I was kept updated.

What is a HR Strategy?2023-11-04T07:24:58+00:00

A HR strategy outlines the plan for a business or organisation relating to its employees. The complexity of a HR strategy depends on how many people that business employs, their long-term plans and also to some degree the industry/sector in which they operate. Sectors which are heavily regulated will require a more robust and complex HR strategy than those which are not.

Norton Loxley work with their clients to align a HR strategy to their overall business goals and aspirations. Often, we work with businesses which are growing and therefore their HR strategy is focussed on growth, however others may be focused on compliance, cost saving or succession planning.

Whatever the priorities of your organisation, it is essential that you share your overall business plans with your HR professional to ensure that the HR strategy is aligned.

What is a HR audit?2023-11-04T07:23:44+00:00

A HR audit aims to review every aspect of a businesses HR function to identify areas which require improvement. Key areas that will be covered within a HR audit are; HR documentation such as employment contracts and the employee handbook, processes and procedures, compliance areas, growth strategies, recruitment, performance, employee engagement and productivity levels.

A HR audit is often followed up with either a HR strategy or plan to outline key areas of improvement and a action plan for implementing these improvements.

What does a HR consultant do?2023-11-04T07:17:57+00:00

A HR consultant will often support business leaders to develop their HR function, this can be supporting an existing HR team at a strategic level or supporting a senior leadership team as the external HR consultant who provides support at a strategic and operational level.

Who we’ve helped

Services

People Strategy

Having a people strategy that is aligned to your goals will help to ensure your business grows and flourishes as your team expands.

If your business is a start-up or growing and employing more people to join your team, it is never too soon to create and develop a people strategy.

We work with business leaders to understand your business aims and goals. From there, we create a bespoke people strategy that helps you and your business achieve your goals. Your goal might be to become an ’employer of choice’ or to attract and retain talent for the future to support your business growth plans. If this is your aim, we can help set a clear direction and support you to achieve your goals.

Services

Employee Engagement

A fully engaged member of your team is likely to be happier, more fulfilled and more focused on their job. We’ll work with you to develop an engagement strategy that aligns with every aspect of your HR approach – communications, policies, systems, learning and development, performance management, benefits, rewards – even company social events.

Services

Employer Branding

How you are perceived can have a huge impact on whether you’re the obvious choice for a potential candidate. We can use your unique company culture as a powerful selling point and present you in a clear, distinct and memorable way. By setting the right expectations you can better appeal to individuals who will excel as part of your company.

Services

Salary benchmarking and job evaluation

Job evaluation and salary benchmarking exercises help you gather internal and external data on roles in your company and equivalent jobs in other employers or sectors.

Salary benchmarking helps your company remain competitive when it comes to attracting and retaining talent. Job evaluation is internally focused, using a systematic approach to  rank jobs and their relative importance within an organisation. Both salary benchmarking and job evaluation help to ensure pay is both fair and competitive.

Using an established job evaluation methodology, we help businesses with implementing and undertaking job evaluations. We also undertake salary benchmarking either alongside job evaluation or as a separate process.

Services

Developing your In-house HR Team

We have extensive experience transitioning and supporting companies as they recruit and embed a new HR or recruitment team.

From defining their role as your business expands to establishing standards for the future or finding the right people to make it work, we offer specialised training and development to help your new team thrive as quickly as possible.

Services

We understand that keeping on top of day to day HR administration such as recording holidays, sickness, updating employee information and HR documents can take up a lot of time for businesses. This is why we recommend having an HR system in place to help take the administration away whilst keeping you compliant and by giving you the HR reporting tools you need.

We have experience of implementing a range of HR systems and finding the right match for your business needs. Find out more on our HR Software section about our approach to supporting the implementation of a HR system.
