Sentient is an outsourced HR advice service providing up to date HR advice for employers. Our primary interests are to provide employer focused advice so that you can get the best performance out of your staff. We do this by providing employment, organisational and training solutions that meets the specific needs of the organisation.
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’re making the most of your staff?
Do you and your managers know the correct way to carry out recruitment, discipline and performance management to be sure they don’t take actions that will put you at risk? If not, you may be putting you, your business or organisation at risk.
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.
Employment law is becoming increasingly complex, with errors proving easy to make and costs associated with it escalating. The number of employment tribunals has been steadily rising for a number of years. HR advice from Sentient protects you from such costs by providing Employment Law and HR consultants for 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 big enough to be able to afford the employment costs of a fully qualified HR person. Sentient provide HR advice that fills this gap. With Sentient you have HR advice and employment law resources available to you round the clock. With Sentient, you'll gain HR advice 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 organisation's performance.
Typical issues that our HR advisors deal with on a day to day basis would include;
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 qualifcations. We provide pragmatic and down to earth HR advice, free from jargon.
Our HR advice service contracts are extremely flexible. 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 and representation at employment tribunals. We will provide fixed price yearly contracts to cover any HR advice or Employment Law issue you want to throw at us, we will work on a project by project basis, or 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.
