These issues can really distract the attention of managers so let PeakHR assist in managing these matters to allow you to regain your focus on running the business.  

Complete the form below giving us a brief idea of the challenge you are facing and we'll get back to discuss how we can help remove the headache.

Discipline

As much as you'd love for things to run smoothly at your company all of the time, the reality is that staff relations can breakdown and misconduct or serious misconduct can occur which may require disciplinary action being taken. 

 

Disciplinary issues can be hard for small businesses to manage.  Working in a small team, you may have grown close to your staff and subsequently it can be difficult to deal with matters of misconduct or poor performance. 

 

PeakHR are able to manage disciplinary matters for you or guide you through the process to manage yourself, whichever you feel is most suitable. 

 

 

We can provide guidance on investigations, assist with gathering witness testimonies, provide agendas and pointers for chairing a disciplinary hearing and help you reach a final decision.

Additionally, we can be a point of appeal for your staff in circumstances where you have dealt with matters internally but there are no further impartial routes within the business to appeal to.

Grievances

It is important that staff have a secure outlet to raise grievances officially and have them heard and treated in good faith. In small businesses where there are few tiers of management, it can be difficult for grievances to be heard impartially, however this is a fundamental part of a sound grievance procedure.  PeakHR can investigate grievances on your behalf and chair disciplinary hearings to reach a fair and independent judgement and make recommendations for both parties to move forward positively after the conclusion of the matter.

 

Once again, a point of appeal is a crucial part of the grievance process and therefore PeakHR can be appointed to hear appeals following the outcome of internally managed grievance processes.

 

Absence

There will always be staff absence within your organisation, but how absence is managed will determine it's impact on the business.  We can help you develop an absence management policy, a monitoring strategy and provide guidance when individuals have either entered long-term absence or have triggered monitoring under short-term persistent absence.  We are experienced in dealing with health issues that may fall under disability legislation and therefore need to be handled carefully.

 

Redundancy

It is an unfortunate fact that in challenging times organisations may need to reduce staff. It is never a decision that business owners take lightly.  PeakHR understand the emotions that are involved in such a process and are therefore able to help you achieve your objectives in a fair and sensitive way.  We can assist you from the very first stages of redundancy; from consideration of action and business rationale through to exit and calculation of redundancy pay.  Throughout the process we will always help you achieve your objectives, in line with legislation.

 

Commercial, sensible, expert advice on human resources matters for small businesses.
