Sentient provides employment, organisational and training solutions that exactly meet the requirements of the employer.

Do I really need HR advice from Sentient?

Most employers are often tied up in the day to day running of their business that they have insufficient time to stay abreast of changes in employment law. For most businesses it is impractical or too expensive to have a fully qualified HR advisor/employment lawyer on the books. Consequently if an issue arises that needs specialist HR advice then there is a likelihood that the employer is ill prepared. We have seen that this can have an impact in a variety of ways. For example the employer could react too harshly to an event, that may result in an employment tribunal being brought. The converse of this is that the employer takes no action and continues to put up with a difficult situation when actually the issues could easily be resolved.  

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? 

Answering "No" to any of these questions may indicate that your organisation may benefit from HR advice from Sentient.

How can HR advice from Sentient help? 

HR advice for employers

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.
