Core HR Policies & Procedures
There are a number of core HR policies and procedures which are required when employing people. These include:
- Disciplinary procedure
- Grievance procedure
- Maternity, paternity, adoption leave and pay
- Parental leave
- The right to request flexible working
- Equal opportunities policy
- Plus many others!
I worked with one small charity who had an ongoing issue with a member of staff who had a high sickness absence level. The Chief Executive did not feel equipped to manage the situation as there were no guidelines in place. I developed an absence management procedure which provided guidance to manage both short term frequent absences and long term sickness absence.
The outcome was that the Chief Executive felt more informed of best practice and confident of how to manage the situation with an absence management procedure in place. The procedure gave clear steps on what to do and what to consider to manage absence effectively and when dismissal on the grounds of capability may be considered and how to follow a fair procedure.
Affordable pricing for social enterprises and small charities
As a social enterprise, I offer my support at £60 per hour which is a significantly lower fee than other providers of HR support to charities. I will discuss with you ahead of starting any work for you how much time it will take and what the cost will be so that we can agree up front what you will pay.
