Let us take your HR problems away

With a monthly retained contract, finally end the worry and uncertainty that employment law issues and staff problems can cause your business while helping bring the best out of your workforce.

Take advantage of an HR retainer contract with Lloyd HR Consultancy and you’ll have an expert to hand when you need them, managing the HR function of your business without the expense of an in-house HR expert.

How you benefit from retaining us monthly:

  • Seriously cost effective. You never know when you’ll need extra support. Fix your HR costs from month-to-month with our retained services packages to ensure you’re not hit with whatever eventualities may arise. Plus our charges work on a sliding scale so the more hours you purchase, the more cost effective it becomes.
  • A weight off your mind. So many businesses falter in the face of the flood of legislation and regulations changing the landscape for employers each day. With our managed service, we’re able to take the pressure off you. When we’re on your side, you’ll never again miss an important update or mistakenly fall foul of employment law changes.
  • Tailored to your business. Every business is different. When taking a managed service retainer, we’ll take the time to discover exactly what makes your business special and any challenges you’re likely to encounter. We’ll thoroughly assess your needs and suggest a package which suits you rather than squeezing you into a one-size-fits-all agreement.
  • Flexible. Some months your HR needs are different from others. If you don’t use all your hours one month, we’ll proactively look for ways to help drive your business forward, either by enhancing and improving elements of your HR process or re-assessing and evaluating your HR needs.
  • There when you need us. You never know how an employee will turn out. If something should go wrong, we’re there for you within 24 hours to help you navigate the mire of performance issues, disciplinary and employment tribunals should it get that far.

Outsourced HR vs in-house HR

Why use an outsourced HR over an in-house HR? For many businesses, the cost of employing a dedicated in-house HR professional is prohibitive. Yet the need to have some HR capability and knowledge base is essential in staying on top of ever-changing regulations. Although you may have an individual within your business with HR responsibility – among others – the need to constantly update and refresh your knowledge of changes to legislation and implement best practice makes this a difficult task for someone with other duties to attend to.

However, using an outsourced HR allows you to tap into the unique set of skills and expertise a dedicated HR professional brings. On a retained contract, you have a highly skilled and experienced HR expert who is dedicated to managing your business’s particular issues as though they were part of your business but without the overhead.
