    Why seek external HR support?

    Maintaining an internal HR function requires a high level of expertise and experience, given the complexity of the issues that a company may face and the risks involved from a business perspective. 

    The challenge of recruiting staff for an in-house HR department can be considerable, and it is little wonder that an increasing number of organisations are seeking external HR support or outsourcing their HR requirements altogether. 

    At Simpson Wood, we offer a bespoke, flexible HR support service that is tailored to your needs. Before we begin delivering HR support to any client, we first undertake a detailed review of the company in question in order to gain an in-depth understanding of its aims, its staff, and any challenges facing the business. 

    Working with Simpson Wood means being able to seek advice on any employee-related issue, even those that might seem like routine matters: bank holidays, sick pay, absence management, working time regulations – we know that these are all areas that really matter and can have a significant impact on businesses of all sizes. 

    We know that the very task of piecing through the complexities of HR can compound issues, and that’s why we strive to offer practical, straight-talking advice that helps improve our clients’ understanding of HR while helping them to address their most pertinent challenges. 

    Our HR support service is at all times professional and our staff are fully abreast of the very latest developments in legislation and employment law. We provide the support our clients need in a cost-effective manner, ensuring the businesses we work with remain compliant with regulations – without having to shoulder the burden of running their own HR function. 

    Our HR support service

    Is your business compliant in issuing written contracts of employment no later than day one of an employee starting work? 

    Are your contracts of employment up to date? 

    Do you have relevant HR policies and procedures in place? 

    These are just some of the questions that we can help you to answer should you choose to enlist the support of Simpson Wood’s HR services. 

    We can also offer support with more complex matters such as: 

    • performance management – ensuring your employees are engaged in your business 
    • employment contracts and policies – meeting legal requirements of employment 
    • recruitment – preparing vacancies, reviewing candidates, interview guidance 
    • grievances and disciplinaries – drafting and implementing effective policies 
    • redundancy – organisational change with minimal disruption 
    • TUPE – managing service provision change 

    While we are not employment lawyers, our talented team includes qualified HR specialists who can guide you through every aspect of our HR support offering and how our services meet the needs of your business. Where legal input is required, we can liaise with employment law professionals and save you the task of unpicking complex processes. 

    If you would like to speak with a member of our team and find out more about how Simpson Wood’s HR services can help your business, contact us today.
