Are you up-to date with the ever changing employment regulations and most importantly do you understand the consequences of not complying with such?

Whether you’re a small company with only a handful of employees or a global business employing thousands, keeping up with the legislation is a headache.

Non-compliance costs in terms of both time and money.But whilst we aim to ensure compliance with the ever changing UK or UAE employment legislation, we also seek the most practical solutions to ensure excellent employee relations within your organisation.

We can also provide template letters linking to any of the policies such as first written warning, probation extension, dismissal letter etc or any HR template which you require.

We further are at hand to communicate and train your employees on policies and practices so everyone fully understands the importance of such. Otherwise they can just be a document sat on a shelf or on your intranet and un-touched.

Improving and Re-designing HR Processes and Forms

Small organizations without a dedicated HR team, or even medium to large organizations with an overworked HR team supporting multiple activities, may benefit from streamlining HR processes.

We map out and document HR processes, simplify them and make them more user friendly for employees.

For clients without any HR processes in place we create the ones that will make life easier, and help line managers and employees to understand what they need to do too

Employee Relations

Employee Engagement

When employees are engaged and motivated they will go the ‘extra mile’ for you. Results will be seen and businesses are always more profitable when their employees are content with their roles, respect you, love the working atmosphere and like to get up in the morning and come to work.

However when you notice something is not quite right, departments are not cooperating or working as one company there are always under-lying reasons.

Will your employees be honest and tell you? Reform consultancy can offer confidential services where we can:

Redundancy and Restructure support

Are you having to make some difficult decisions regarding the future of your organisation and employees? Redundancies may sometimes be necessary, when you no longer require an individual to do their job, however to be fair and equitable you must demonstrate their to be a genuine reason for the redundancy. The process can be daunting and pose a risk to your business if you do not comply with the necessary legal procedures. This is where we can help. Our consultants have the knowledge and expertise to manage, advise or provide documentation to assist you with the process from beginning to end. We can help you to:

  • Look at your organisation structure and where you could make savings

We can help you grow and develop your business by providing training that is relevant to your business goals. We start by planning and identifying the training needs of your business in order to provide the correct courses for your staff.

Staff Surveys

Engagement and Satisfaction survey

How engaged, empowered, motivated and happy are your employees?

An important part of developing any business for the future is the feedback you receive from your people.  The best way to gain feedback is to ask for it.

We can help run and set up a confidential employee survey which will have two closely interlinked purposes:

  • To increase the satisfaction and engagement of employees
  • To strengthen the business through continuous improvement of working processes, organisation and management practices

Thereafter we provide the support to review feedback and carry out follow-up survey sessions with your employees to explore where we you are going well, how to retain this, where you are not doing so well and how as one company and one team improvements can be made.

Exit Interview

Are you experiencing high employee turnover but do not know the under-lying cause?

Exit interviews are an essential ingredient of an effective employee retention strategy. We can help design a survey, carry out the survey confidentially and advise you on actions you could consider to make improvements for the future.

Organisations who engage with their staff and provide opportunities for them to influence activities are inevitably the ones who are more successful - motivating and retaining talent within their organisations, and encouraging everyone to play a key role in organisational development

If you are not sure what support you require then why not complete the on-line risk assessment to see whether your business has the relevant HR processes in place.
