HR & legal consultancy

We’ll work to reduce the day-to-day burden on your HR team or line managers, leaving them free to focus on the strategic people issues that drive your success. We’ll also provide them with the coaching and mentoring they need to raise their game, along with the materials, guidance and processes to manage just about any HR scenario. 

Building teams – employee recruitment and reward

We’ll help you recruit the right people, working with you to define role requirements and job specifications, then supporting you through the interview and selection process. And we’ll make sure those people are motivated to succeed, with payment systems and reward mechanisms that help you hold on to talent.

Rebuilding for the future – outplacement

As a savvy business, you recognise that responsible business behaviour pays back now and in the future. We can help you put outplacement programmes in place to help manage transition.We can keep productivity high and absenteeism low so that you conduct your business profitably - and rebuild for the future.

Playing fair – dispute management and mediation

Whether you’re facing a large-scale redundancy programme, or a single unfair dismissal claim, we’ll keep you on the right side of the law. We’re experts at handling tribunals, managing dismissals and negotiating compromise agreements, but we’re equally good at building bridges – mediating between you, your people and their representatives.

Rewarding people - pensions & benefits

We understand that companies need joined up advice and support from specialists who can work in partnership - leaving you free to make the crucial business decisions. The EEF/BDO Pension and Benefits service can lighten the burden of implementing these ‘one-off’ projects such as introducing salary sacrifice arrangements or reviewing pension benefits.

Winning hearts – employee engagement

Few organisations have a better understanding of workforce dynamics. Ours has been fine-tuned by years of working at the meeting point between people, management and unions. We’ll help you understand how your people think and how you can harness their mental energy to your business objectives.

Leveraging talent – employee development

It’s in your interests to keep your people at the top of their game. We’ll help you assess their potential, manage their performance and increase their effectiveness.

Making it work – organisation and productivity

Your people may be the best, but their productivity depends on the working environment you create. Whether it’s identifying the optimum working hours for your business or working with you to prepare for business change, we’ll help build flexibility into your workforce. And we’ll strive to balance people productivity with people cost.
