HR Consultancy Services

The different ways in which we can work with you.

Our HR Consultancy Services

Our HR consultancy services cover the full range of HR support that your business may need.

We can bring these services together to provide you with a fully Outsourced HR service, where we become your HR department and address all of your HR requirements.

Once you’ve decided on the services you need, you then determine whether you want them through a Retained Agreement or to simply Pay As You Go.

HR Support & Advice

Our HR Support & Advice service provides you with the support you need to deal with employee issues such as disciplinaries, grievances and employee well-being concerns.

Lighter HR - HR Consultancy Services - HR Support and Advice

The HR Support & Advice service is fully flexible. You determine how you would like us to help you:

  • You may just want to chat the situation through, understand what your options are, and then take the necessary actions yourself;
  • You may prefer us to provide you with some scripts and the relevant documentation;
  • You may look for us to deal with the entire matter on your behalf.

It’s about what works for you and your business.

No matter which support option you’d like, the starting point is the same: You’ll chat with one of our consultants about the situation you are trying to manage, they’ll give you the options along with the associated risks, and then you can decide what support you would like from us.

You can receive the HR Support & Advice service with a Retained Agreement or as Pay As You Go.

Lighter HR - HR Consultancy Services - Service Model - HR Projects

HR Consultancy Services

HR Projects

When we talk about “HR Projects” we’re talking about a piece of work that addresses a particular HR requirement that you have. It could be that you are implementing a performance appraisal system, undertaking a salary benchmarking exercise, maybe even conducting an HR audit to make sure you’re doing everything you should be; the list is endless!

Lighter HR - HR Consultancy Services - HR Projects

Our HR Projects service helps you plan and deliver your projects, typically where

  • You have a complex project, for example, a redundancy exercise or TUPE transfer, which needs specific HR insight and experience that you don’t have in your business;
  • You need a dedicated consultant or team to deliver the project so your in-house team can focus on providing your existing strategic and operational HR activities.

With our HR Projects service, we’ll work with you to understand exactly what you’re looking to achieve, discuss the options available to you, and then provide you with a proposal as to how we could help you. If you like what you see then we’ll create a full project plan and set of deliverables, so that you’re clear on exactly what you’ll get and when, and then get to work!

The HR Projects service is available with a Retained Agreement or as Pay As You Go, and often we offer the work as Fixed Price.

Lighter HR - HR Consultancy Services - Service Model - HR Process Administration

HR Process Administration

There’s a lot of administration involved in managing people. As people join your organisation they need a contract, they need to be added to your payroll and any HR system/spreadsheet that you use. During their time with you there may be changes to terms and conditions that you need to process and you’ll need to track and manage their holiday and any other absence. Then, as they leave you’ll need to deal with the administration around exiting them from the organisation.

Lighter HR - HR Consultancy Services - HR Process Administration

Our HR Administration services help you manage the full range of HR tasks and are appropriate when:

  • You find that you are spending too much time processing HR documentation;
  • You are going through a period of growth where there is an increase in demand for HR documentation;
  • You simply want to be confident that all of the HR administration is being handled appropriately and nothing is being overlooked.

We’ll work with you to create the processes that you want us to follow and then we’ll take care of all of the HR administration on your behalf.

HR Process Administration is available with a Retained Agreement or as Pay As You Go.
