HR to grow your team and your business
Staff are a valuable asset. To be productive, keep your staff happy and engaged. We help you to look after your staff, so that you can look after the future of your business.
Managing HR can be time consuming and stressful, and takes small business owners and managers away from their core business. With regular changes in employment law and codes of practice, it is crucial to get it right.
Business Clan’s HR specialists support you when you need it. We keep you up to date with employment law developments, and we offer services to support you through every step of your people process, from developing recruitment procedures, writing employment contracts, and creating policies for staff handbooks, through to managing attendance, reviewing employee performance, handling disciplinary issues and guiding you through dispute resolution.
We can conduct a compliance audit of your existing employee contracts, or create new contract templates to suit your business needs.
Every business should have an up to date and legally compliant set of policies and procedures. We can work with you to develop your policy manuals and employee handbooks from scratch, or to bring your existing documentation into line with current legislation and best practice.
Whether you are recruiting to build your team, or looking to formalise and review existing job roles, we can help you to create clear and measurable job descriptions for everyone in your team.
Unfortunately employing people isn’t always all plain sailing. We can be available to advise you on managing performance or conduct issues within your team, and to guide you through the discipline and grievance process, both at informal and formal stages.
Monitoring and managing sickness and absence effectively can bring significant savings to your business. We can work with you to develop straight forward procedures which can help reduce absence and manage sickness responsibly.
Incentivising your team through performance related pay can help to ensure that everyone is fully engaged and focused towards their core objectives. Our HR team can advise on the best approach to developing and implementing a performance pay structure that is best suited to your business.
The compulsory pensions auto-enrolment process is looming for many small businesses, and staging dates for some are very soon. We can work with you to identify staging dates, actions required, costs involved and options for pension providers which are suitable for small businesses.
Every employer is obliged to follow procedures to ensure that their employees have the legal right to work in the UK.

We will set you up on a hosted HR platform where your right to work checks will be performed via secure government gateways. The hosted platform is ISO27001 compliant and stores all the relevant paper work and supporting documentation which is required to demonstrate compliance.
If you prefer, we will handle and process the checks for you, so that you have peace of mind that your business is compliant.
Our fees are accessible for SMEs, so if you would like your compliance managed quickly and effectively please get in touch and speak to one of our HR professionals.
Performance reviews ensure that your team are engaged, motivated, and working towards the right objectives to a satisfactory standard. They provide a valuable and fair tool for managing and determining reward systems, as well as identifying development needs. We can consult with you to create or build upon your review procedures, and ensure that they focus on the right measures of performance.
Our HR team possess many years’ experience in designing and delivering training, whether on a one-to-one basis, or for larger teams.
Hiring into your small business can be a daunting process. Whether you lack confidence and experience in the hiring and interviewing process, or have limited time to devote to it, we can support by either working alongside you to develop a recruitment procedure tailored to your business, or by supporting with sifting CVs and conducting interviews.
Whether you need employment contracts, an employee handbook, policies and procedures, or help with job descriptions or grievance procedures, we have HR consultants on hand to provide guidance and practical assistance. View our HR packages for more details and prices.
