Our HR consultancy support gives you access to the extra personnel help you need on a flexible basis.

Consultancy and advice can be provided to deal with an isolated issue when a problem arises or if your normal HR provider cannot help for any reason. This means you don't need to employ expensive specialist staff on a full time regular basis but can access the level of advice you need - just when you need it.

Typical Areas requiring Consultancy

HC Associates can offer Consultancy services designed to meet your needs, typical areas being:

  • Grievance handling
  • Disciplinary and capability
  • Sickness and absence management
  • Job evaluation and preparation of job descriptions
  • Staffing restructure and grading
  • Operational Consultancy and case work
  • Strategic Consultancy
  • Large scale TUPE transfers
  • Site Closures

Our experience

HC Associates are fully up to date and conversant with current employment and case law.

With over 17 years’ operational consultancy experience and more than 20 years HR experience, we help you to minimise the risk of successful claims to Employment Tribunal and the courts by assessing the risk and helping you to understand the implications of certain actions or inaction with respect to employing people.

Consultancy advice

It usually helps to discuss things face to face but you may prefer help via the telephone or email which may be quicker. We are happy to work in a way which provides what you need and also gives value for money.

Consultancy time is planned to suit you. We work with all levels of management in the organisation so understand the need to be flexible and fitting in to your working day. If you have an emergency situation we have a number of ways to contact us including mobile telephone for those customers who take up our complete HR service.
