Retained HR Services

Employee issues can be stressful and fraught with danger which is why our clients choose to use our retained HR services to ensure they approach employee issues professionally, properly and pragmatically.

Our retained HR services help business owners and managers ensure they remain legal compliant by providing contracts of employment, and policies and procedures that are tailored to the needs of your business.  However the key benefit our all our retained HR services are that business owners and manager are provided with unlimited access to our team of qualified and experienced HR Consultants in Northern Ireland and Glasgow, Scotland.

We have a number of options that are designed to match every need and every budget. Our main support options include:

  • Unlimited HR Support Service (including unlimited face to face visits to your premises)
  • Unlimited Telephone & Email Support Service

Possible add-ons to the Unlimited Telephone and Email Support Service include:

  • Tribunal Preparation Support
  • Face to face visits to your premises by one of our HR consultants
  • Health & Safety Support for your business premises by one of our Health and Safety Consultants

 

HR Projects

Rather than sign up to one of our retained HR services some businesses prefer to engage us in specific HR projects on a ‘pay as you go’ or project fee basis. Given the experience of our HR Consultants both in Northern Ireland and Glasgow we are able to make a big impact on difficult client HR issues.

Some examples of HR projects we have undertaken include:

  • Interim onsite HR Management – this involves placing a HR Consultant at a client site for a period of time in order to provide HR Management cover.
  • Restructuring and Reorganisation – including assisting businesses close some of their locations as well as assisting with collective consultation regarding changing contract of employment and / or redeployment of employees to alternative roles.
  • TUPE Consultations – relating to both business acquisitions and service provision changes.
  • Preparing tailor made contracts of employment, employee handbooks and other relevant employment documentation.
  • Reviewing and designing performance management systems.
  • Workplace mediation
  • HR Audits of existing arrangements and providing advice on potential improvements.

If you have an issue and want some help on a ‘pay as you go’ basis please give us a call.

 

Workplace Mediation

​Mediation is a form of ‘alternative dispute resolution’ which is essentially a tool to deal with disagreements between individuals in the workplace and is much less formal than grievance and discipline procedures and employment tribunals.

The overriding aim is to restore and maintain the employment relationship wherever possible.  This means that the focus is more on working together to go forward, not determining who was right or wrong in the past.  With this in mind, it is most effective before positions become entrenched however it can be used at any stage in a dispute.

At present, three of our HR Consultants are accredited mediators.

Don't just take our word for it

We first began to use the services of BeyondHR as a result of a TUPE situation which we encountered during 2011 and since then, we have continued to retain their Human Resource and Health & Safety Management Service. The vast experience and hands on approach from BeyondHR has helped us to deal with a number of challenging issues over the years. The team at BeyondHR are not only a friendly bunch but they have always been willing to go the extra mile in order to achieve the correct result for our business.

EB Gas engaged the services of BeyondHR over a decade ago and have found the work of the experienced and knowledgeable team to be an invaluable resource. We continue to rely on their practical and hands-on support in relation to a wide variety of HR issues, tailored, where necessary to suit our business and our specific policies. The service gives us the confidence that we are dealing with our employees in a fair manner whilst also protecting ourselves from the plethora of problems that could potentially arise from the mismanagement of difficult HR situations. I would recommend the service to anyone who is responsible for the employment of a workforce.

BeyondHR have been our retained HR Advisors for our Stores and Distribution Centre in Northern Ireland since 1999. Helen, Neil and the rest of the team offer an extremely professional service to their clients and are always on hand to answer a wide range of queries in a timely manner whilst always taking our business needs into consideration. The service that we have received from BeyondHR has been second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other Employers.

Youth Link has received human resource management support from BeyondHR since April 2011. The service provided has included development of Employee Handbook, advice and support regarding recruitment and other HR issues arising. This has proved invaluable to the organisation.

Paddy White, Director | Youth Link

Having been a client of BeyondHR since 2000, I very much value the professionalism and dedication shown by all their team members. With the expert and practical assistance we have managed our human resources efficiently within the very recent difficult economic times, through dramatic contraction to now exponential growth. As a business owner faced with a raft of complex H.R. legislation, BeyondHR has given me confidence in dealing with such matters through the provision of legal and workable solutions, and as such, this has allowed me to focus on other important aspects of our business.

Peter Doherty, Managing Director | Garage Door Systems Ltd

BeyondHR provided calm, professional and reassuring advice to help our organisation work through complicated issues. I would recommend them most highly to anyone. They go above and beyond.

Dr Kirsten Kearney, Chief Executive | ESC Films

We engaged BeyondHR from the inception of Bellrock Technology in 2012. As a new CEO I wanted to ensure that we started taking on employees in a professional way as well as correctly managing our employment relationships. BeyondHR provided us with employment documentation that is legally compliant as well as being tailored to our needs and I have peace of mind knowing that I can call upon the BeyondHR team whenever I need practical hands-on HR support. I would recommend BeyondHR to any startup or SME – it is definitely money well spent.
