Using a HR consultant is a cost effective way of buying in HR knowledge and skills for small to medium sized businesses where an in-house resource would prove too expensive. Clients use us only when they need us rather than having an under-utilised senior HR practitioner or a more junior HR administrator out of their depth.
At West HR, we help SME employers with anything to do with employment. There’s a huge employment law framework in place and it’s not realistic for business owners and managers to know all of this, so we provide that expertise.
So who uses us? It tends to be businesses that do not warrant an in-house HR resource, typically 10-50 employees.
Businesses take on staff for tasks that cannot be mechanised. But the whole need for a human element brings challenges to employers. There’s the legal framework alongside meeting the varying needs of people to run an effective and efficient business.
Employees will inevitably have things in their lives at some point that can impact their performance. All people are different and two situations are rarely the same. A line manager has to deal with difficult employee situations on an ad hoc basis whereas we deal with a wide variety situations on an ongoing basis and have many, many years of experience. We are able to apply our experience and judgement to help employers manage these tricky scenarios.
With our help we can prevent employee distraction, management time, lost productivity and additional costs.
