What HR advice do we offer?

Trying to answer some simple questions can quickly assist you make a decision if you need Sentient’s HR advice for employers; 

Do you completely understand what effect the complexities of modern-day employment regulation have on your business?

Can you really say you’re making the most of your staff? 

Do you and your managers know how to recruit, conduct performance reviews and manage difficult employees in a way that does not position you in danger of being taken to tribunal?

Are you aware of all the employment law statutes that effect who you employ and the rights of those employees? If not, you, your business or company could be at risk.

It is understandable that you want to concentrate on building your business and issues with people can get in the way. That’s where HR advice from Sentient can help. It lets you get on with the things you know about and allows us to look after those HR issues that could take up huge amounts of management time.

HR advice is a complicated aspect of management, with errors proving easy to make and expenses related to it escalating. Regardless of the introduction of fees that employees now need to pay to enter into a tribunal hearing, we have seen a range of complex cases being submitted which have caused problems for employers. In turn this has increased the legal fees of handling them. For an affordable monthly fee, HR advice from Sentient ensures that the chances of incurring these heavy tribunal costs are minimised.

As businesses grow, the number of times that HR Advice is required will increase with it. Most organisations are not large enough or allow for a full time qualified HR specialist. Sentient provides HR advice that covers this shortfall. With sentient you have HR advice and employment lawyers available to you 7 days a week without incurring the costs that employed staff would bring.

Typical issues that our HR support consultants deal with on a day to day basis include how to deal with poor performing employees or how to manage prolonged absences. We are also commonly asked about how to handle grievances and how we can make an employee redundant aat the same time minimising any chance of a tribunal being brought. In fact we look after everything from age discrimination to whistle blowing.
