Keep your people happy and your business thriving

As a small to medium-sized business, you may not have the budget or need for an in-house HR team, but you still need support dealing with day-to-day and ad hoc HR issues when they arise.

EST’s HR team can provide flexible and comprehensive ongoing support or one-off assistance when you find yourself in a people pickle that needs a swift and smooth resolution with the personal touch. We can even work on-site to deal with more complex situations if needed.

The Essentials

Have all your documents in place for when a new employee starts, when an existing employee leaves, and everything in between. Once you’ve got the foundations set, we can maintain them (with our meticulous touch), so you’ll always be up to date. We can also do ad hoc or annual HR audits to ensure compliance with employment legislation. (Yes, it is as important as it sounds!)

  • Employee handbooks – the ultimate resource with all of the policies and procedures your business needs
  • Employment contracts – to make sure you’re properly protected and on the right side of the law
  • Consultant / contractor agreements
  • Recruitment templates (like job descriptions, interview questions, and hiring strategies) – to make life easy when taking on new staff
  • GDPR compliance – templates to ensure you are auditing, recording and communicating the personal information that you process in relation to your team.

All-inclusive HR Services

When complicated or delicate issues arise with staff, you need someone in your corner to guide you through the HR maze and help you tread carefully. Our aim is to become an extension of the team so you can throw all your HR needs our way.

  • Manage complex employee issues & situations, such as disciplinary, grievance, attendance, and performance – and make them as painless as possible for both parties
  • Redundancy planning, briefing, document preparation, and management on your behalf
  • TUPE advice, planning, consultations, and management on your behalf
  • Advise on options for restructuring and/or redeployment
  • Mediation and dispute management
