Here at Smith Cooper, we work alongside both large and small businesses, providing expert HR consultancy and solutions that work for them.
Our service to clients is borne out of identifying that while not all businesses can justify the cost of a permanent HR function, they may still need to access professional employment support. With a wealth of experience across a wide range of business sectors, coupled with our passion for what we do, we bring pragmatic, cost-effective HR consultancy to our clients.
Getting the basics right applies in any profession, and HR is no different. We offer a range of services to ensure you have the appropriate, legally compliant documentation and policies in place, whether reviewing existing documentation or drafting and tailoring bespoke policies and documents for your business context.
Businesses do not operate in a void, and whether you are facing the challenges of growth or economic downturn, we can support you – from developing a rigorous recruitment and onboarding process to attract and retain the best staff, to navigating a restructuring or redundancy programme. We won’t just be on the end of the phone, but will manage the process, sit in on meetings and provide advice.
We have many years of operational HR experience, and you can access our wealth of knowledge and our support in a number of ways:
- Handling a specific complex one-off issue – grievances, investigations, ad hoc projects
- Acting effectively as your HR manager – providing an outsourced HR solution for your business
- Guiding you through the increasingly complex and potentially costly minefield of employment legislation and helping you deal with those complex employee situations that your business faces – assisting in person or by phone.
We have a range of flexible, cost-effective options for providing any of the above services: a fixed-fee, pay-as-you-go option for those needing a flexible approach; prepaid discounted rates for those requiring particular and regular HR input and advice; or a fixed monthly fee, which offers reassurance and known financial commitment for clients needing access to the broad HR offering.
We pride ourselves on the mutual respect and partnerships that we have with our clients, who return for advice due to our direct, straightforward approach and ability to respond quickly with flexible solutions that really work for them.
