HR Management

A2T would ensure that you have up-to-date, legislatively compliant staff records for all your employees, protecting them, and you, from potential problems. They would also deal knowledgeably with all of the paperwork required for new starters, leavers and everything in between.

At A2T we can offer you all the functions of a fully qualified HR administrator but at a fraction of the cost of employing one. Giving you the same peace of mind and accessibility, without the costly employment overheads.

Our HR Administration service will give you the support and tools you need to effectively manage your employees, relieving you of the worries associated with, ensuring you are legislatively compliant and giving you more time to spend on your business. It allows you to benefit from the breadth of expertise and efficiency we, as a dedicated HR Support company, are able to provide.

Our HR Administration service provides you with a dedicated member of our HR team who will be responsible for overseeing your HR administration and record keeping throughout your employee’s time with your business.

This typically includes:

New Starter administration – offer letters and starter/medical details etc

Contracts of Employment - You are obliged to issue your employees with written contracts of employment that contain certain prescribed information defined by law. If you do not, then you can be taken to Employment Tribunal

You may have requirements that go beyond the statutory minimum and need to include clauses that offer your business additional protection should things go wrong. For example: –

Do you want to restrict your employees from working for a competitor?

Do you want to impose obligations of confidentiality upon them?

Do you want to be able to put them on “garden leave” if they resign?

Do you want to stop them poaching your customers or staff once they leave?

Here, our HR professionals will need to talk to you in more depth about your business and its requirements. We can then produce an employee contract which meets the specific needs of your business.

Employee Handbooks – A2T are well versed in preparing employee handbooks for organisations in many different sectors including retailers, the financial sector, charitable organisations and office-based organisations. If you spell out clearly what is expected from your staff then your organisation runs more efficiently in the way that you need. It helps to ensure fairness and consistency and supports your disciplinary procedures. It should also mean that dealing with misunderstandings or the occasional problem becomes more straight-forward when you can point to a handbook that each of your employees has received that is clear on the policies and procedures of your organisation.
