Your company’s best friend

IF you asked five different business owners what HR meant to them, the chances are that you would receive five different responses.

HR is a diverse field and what it represents to business owners and managers is often dependent upon their own HR experiences.

We find that in most cases this experience is not wide enough to enable a company to fully benefit from the advantages HR can bring to the business and to the individuals within the business.

For your business to work effectively you need to benefit from the skills, experiences and potential your staff can offer, recognising that

IF you asked five different business owners what HR meant to them, the chances are that you would receive five different responses.

HR is a diverse field and what it represents to business owners and managers is often dependent upon their own HR experiences.

We find that in most cases this experience is not wide enough to enable a company to fully benefit from the advantages HR can bring to the business and to the individuals within the business.

For your business to work effectively you need to benefit from the skills, experiences and potential your staff can offer, recognising that they are potentially your most important and most expensive asset in the business – this is where good HR comes in. Be it implementing a training and development programme, succession planning, a performance management system, or focusing on employee engagement, and communication; having bespoke HR support that takes the time to understand your business and fit your business’s needs, can make sure that as an employer you obtain these benefits.

When looking for your ‘company’s best friend’ in HR, certain basic criteria also need to be met;

* Keeping you up to date with recent legislation and having the opportunity to discuss how it will affect your business

* Supporting you and your managers to implement policies and procedures in a compliant way

* Offering you options of alternative routes to take, identifying the risks attached with each route and discussing how to mitigate these risks and identifying what can be put in place for the future

* Identifying areas of HR to focus on during the year ahead, to move you forward

One example of where this can all be put into practice is with flexible working – a hot topic with new legislation coming into force in June this year, extending the rights of flexible working requests to all employees. The term flexible working covers many possible scenarios, which with suitable advice, can ensure that business owners achieve benefits for both the staff and the business.

At Black Dog HR Consultancy Ltd our experience with Northamptonshire businesses has proven to us how key this criteria is while working proactively with our clients and we look forward to further opportunities of developing businesses across the region.
