Experts launch online system

A FIRM in Kettering that specialises in providing outsourced HR support to other businesses, has launched an e-Learning and Policy Compliance system that enables organisations to train staff and stay up to date with employment legislation.

HR Solutions developed the e-learning service after feedback from several clients on how best to advise them of several pieces of high-impact employment law legislation that have changed in the UK in recent months, including the Data Protection Act 2018, General Data Protection Regulation, Criminal Finances Act, Equality Act, and Gender Pay Gap Reporting.

The system works by rolling out a company’s policies to its staff via an online portal. Staff members read each policy and complete a short test at the end to demonstrate they understand and accept the policy. The system also houses a series of e-learning courses and management training videos on topics including workplace legislation; workplace skills such as time management and negotiation; health and safety and management training. Admins or managers of the system can then run real-time progress reports to demonstrate compliance which can be used as evidence when undergoing an ISO accredited standard or tendering for work or new contracts.

Greg Guilford, Chief Executive Officer of HR Solutions, said: “Employment legislation is constantly changing and that is challenging for businesses as they have to ensure compliance and the costs are high if they get it wrong. Falling foul of the legislation could lead to compensation claims and legal fees as well as damage to an organisation’s reputation. This system has been designed to help companies be compliant and develop their staff whilst growing their business easily and cost effectively.”

HR Solutions supplies outsourced HR support to clients from small care agencies to multi-national technology firms and boasts over 300 clients in a wide range of industries including financial services, charitable, medical and hospitality sectors. Services available include HR health checks, bespoke documentation and handbooks, employment advice and more.
