HR Smart, the leading human resources consultancy group, has announced the creation of a new website that helps business owners with free employment advice.
The website, Online HR Advisor www.online-hr-advisor.co.uk, went live today and aims to keep businesses ahead of legal issues that arise from employment by helping them follow the correct processes and procedures.
Businesses may register for free and immediately gain access to clear and comprehensive flowcharts which detail the necessary stages required to manage common HR issues.
“We’ve specifically designed the service to provide simple, easy-to-use advice to business owners grappling with day-to-day employment issues,” said HR Smart’s Heidi Rush. “Its simplicity is what makes it different from anything else on the market.”
“Most businesses don’t have their own qualified HR professional. By registering as a user on Online HR Advisor, business owners gain access to a wealth of resources at their fingertips to keep their company within the law and help them sleep easier at night.”
The site currently hosts 12 informative flowcharts which deal with the most common HR questions. These include how to managerecruitment, maternity, paternity, parental leave, changes to contractual terms and right to work in the UK checks. Registered users can expect further issues and processes to be similarly explained over the coming months.
Each easy-to-follow flowchart guides the user through their selected process and explains in simple terms how to put into practice the actions required by law and best practice.
If users require further help, a range of documents, guidance notes, tools, letters and forms can be purchased individually from Online HR Advisor when needed. The user simply clicks a link on the process flowchart and downloadable options become available.
Alternatively, users can subscribe to single or multiple Toolkits, which allow them to download and use all of the documents and materials within those processes for a limited period of time.
Online HR Advisor offers SMEs add-ons including an HR Helpline and the opportunity to sign up for HR Smart’s newsletter Smart News, which features business-critical information related to employment. Users taking the HR Helpline option will also be able to directly raise human resources queries with HR Smart through its handy help desk ticket system.
