Simplifying the Complexities of The Employment Lifecycle
From the day you start considering recruiting your first employee, you will need HR support to safeguard your business. If you are an SME and considering employing or are already further down the line, we can guide you through the employment lifecycle to help:
The Employment Lifecycle
Deciding to Recruit: We will ensure your need to recruit is well-defined so that the job descriptions we produce are designed to match your business needs and prevent unsuitable prospects from wasting your time and resources. Liz Wood HR has many years of experience, often matching people to extremely demanding roles, giving you a head-start on where and how to source people who will help optimise your business.
The Recruitment Process: The uncertainty of short-listing and interviewing through to checking references and making an offer drains management time, which impacts revenue in small businesses. Liz Wood HR takes on these processes, reducing your business risk and enabling you to concentrate on core business operations to continue optimising revenue.
Employee Performance: People are your most expensive resource and if their performance is not managed, it can make or break your profitability. Good employees instinctively want to progress within their roles or advance their career. Although larger organisations often have career progression routes, we have plenty of options that have proven to help accelerate SME growth.
Succession: There are many situations, outside of your control, that cause employees to move away, take long-term leave or want to become part-time. Weaving succession planning into employee management is one of the best ways to minimise risk to your business. It can often help promote the notion that there is a potential career path in the smallest of businesses. Donít wait for somebody to hand in their notice, be prepared by contacting us for advice on continuity.
Ending Employment: Business owners and managers do not enjoy bringing employment to an end Ė it often fills them with dread. When you realise that an employee needs to leave, contact us for assistance as your actions, discussions and documentation leading up to a redundancy or dismissal are business-critical and can have financial consequences.
