Gerald Edelman’s new HR consultancy service

Richard Kleiner

People are paramount to a business’ success and hiring and managing people can quickly present both unexpected and challenging scenarios. Making sure that your people are well managed is incredibly important. From your initial interview process and producing an effective offer letter, to ensuring that you are equipped with the knowledge to exercise your rights as an employer, having the correct systems and practices in place can make all the difference.

In the contemporary working environment where employee expectations, advancements in technology and frequent changes in employment legislation can create a minefield of complexities to navigate, both business owners and even the most experienced HR professionals can benefit from additional support. Gerald Edelman’s HR consultancy service has been implemented to help clients to manage their organisation’s talent and personnel issues in a variety of ways.

HR consultation days offer access to a CIPD qualified consultant who will provide insight, guidance and assistance on how to move forward with personnel related goals, or on any complex case work such as disciplinary, grievance, redundancy and gross misconduct issues or developing a long-term HR strategy. HR project work can be used to support businesses going through a period of change or experiencing significant growth. In these circumstances organisations often require dedicated resource on a project basis across multiple aspects of HR, such as measuring employee engagement and driving new initiatives, reviewing and designing a robust end-to-end recruitment process or designing a reward and recognition package. Gerald Edelman’s HR retainer service is designed to provide access to advice and guidance on day-to-day personnel issues for a fixed monthly fee.

Clients often use this option for reassurance to internal HR departments or for procedural guidance. The retainer service is telephone based however, face-to-face consultation days can also be built into the package. This service would typically cover issues such as employee contract review, creating bespoke employee contracts and staff handbooks, and recruitment assistance. Outsourced HR for SMEs is useful for businesses that are unable to anticipate the nature of their HR needs but would like the reassurance of knowing that support is available.

This service aims to provide a solution for businesses that would prefer not to commit to a fixed monthly fee or large project work by providing access to consultants on a fixed hourly rate with no long-term obligation. Whatever the size, sector and in-house HR capabilities of their business, and whether they would like occasional support or more integrated assistance, the Gerald Edelman team can work in partnership with their clients to manage their HR needs.
