Just about every large firm has its own Human Resource department, but when it comes to smaller businesses, the financial responsibility of employing a HR specialist when they're not needed on a full time basis simply doesn't make sense.
Yet there are consultants such as Cambridge based Janet Henson-Webb – Human Resources Consultant, who works with clients on an ad-hoc, outsourced basis. So what can she – and other HR consultants – do for your business?
A HR consultant can improve your business in many ways, not least drawing up essentials such as contracts of employment, recruitment and employment law advice.
As the link between company and employee, they can settle any grievances and seek ways in which to improve your working environment. They can work with you to establish an ethos of hearing out employees and ensuring that staff are comfortable with sharing their views and issues with management.
In essence, they will help you forge a better relationship with your employees, increasing motivation, production and loyalty. A happier workforce also means a lower turnover of staff, reducing the stress and financial costs of recruitment and training.
A HR consultant will also address the management of the company to ensure that it is functioning efficiently. For example, it may be determined that there are too many managers, or that the roles each manager performs could be altered or transferred to another person to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
