HR Advice for Employers 

London, Surrey, Kent, Essex and surrounds

Sentient is an outsourced HR advice service providing up to date HR advice for employers in London, Surrey, Kent, Essex and surrounds. Our primary interests are to provide employer focused HR advice so that you can get the best performance out of your staff and to keep your organisation running smoothly. Typical HR advice issues that our consultants deal with on a day to day basis would 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, at the same time minimising any chance of a tribunal being brought. In fact we look after everything from age discrimination to whistle blowing.

Our consultants provide as much HR advice and guidance as you need. We hold your hand every step of the way, giving pragmatic HR advice and providing you with all the letters and documentation you may need during the process. Starting with employee handbooks and contracts of employment, we keep you on the right side of the law, steering you through the complexities of employment legislation. 

Why would you need HR advice?

You want to concentrate on running your core business. That’s understandable. But keeping up to date with employment law regulations and staff performance management IS your business. You could find yourself making a costly mistake if you ignore them. A few simple questions can quickly help you decide if you need Sentient’s HR advice for employers;

Do you understand fully how the complexities of current Employment Law affect your business?

Can you honestly say you are making the most of your staff?

Do you and your managers know the correct way to carry out recruitment, discipline and performance management such that they don’t take actions that will put you at risk?

If not, you, your business or organisation may be at risk.

HR Advice - consultants at workEmployment law is a complex aspect of management, with errors proving easy to make and the costs associated with any mistakes escalating. Despite the introduction of fees for employees to lodge an employment tribunal we have seen the number of complex cases continuing to cause greater problems for employers. In turn this increases the legal costs of dealing with them. HR advice from Sentient helps you avoid those large costs by providing Employment Law and HR consultants for a an affordable monthly fee. 

As businesses grow, the number of times that HR advice is required increases with it. Most companies however are simply not large enough to be able to justify the employment costs of a suitably qualified HR resource. Sentient provide HR advice that fills this gap. With Sentient you have HR advice and employment law resources available to you round the clock, 7 days a week, at a fraction of the cost of a full time member of staff. 

We understand that choosing the right organisation to provide you with HR advice can be time consuming and confusing, so Sentient try and make it easy for you. All our friendly HR advice consultants are CIPD qualified and/or have appropriate legal qualifications. We provide pragmatic and down to earth HR advice, free from jargon.

Sentient HR advice - what contracts do we offer?

Our HR advice contracts are extremely flexible. We provide as much or as little HR advice as you require. We will provide anything from drawing up contracts of employment, and employee handbooks, to putting in place specific policies on issues such as sick leave or maternity/paternity leave, through to managing disciplinary procedures. We will provide fixed price yearly contracts to cover any HR advice or Employment Law issue you want to throw at us, or work on a project basis, where you have one specific HR advice issue that you need resolving.

Where we differ from many other companies is that we will actually work with you in your business. For example, rather than just provide HR advice about a grievance procedure and let you get on with it, if you prefer, we will write all the necessary correspondence and should you wish for even closer support, attend and run any meetings that may be required. We work as if we were part of your team from the start to the conclusion of the process.

All our HR advice services and recommendations are tailor made to suit your organisation and its current circumstances. With Sentient, you’ll gain HR support from pragmatic experts who understand the law as well as the day to day reality of managing staff. We’ll make sure your systems and documents are up to date and legal, and we’ll identify and address HR and training issues in order to boost your performance.

In addition we can back up our advice with the option of Legal Expenses Insurance Policy which provides protection against the costs of defending employment tribunal claims that may be brought against you. More details...
