Hummingbird HR Services offers new and prospective clients a HR Healthcheck as part of its initial consultation service. This is a great way for us to get to know your business and the types of issues you are experiencing. One of the main concerns we hear from SME’s without HR support is that they ‘don’t know what they don’t know. The healthcheck gives a good overview of the HR focus areas and provides a way of prioritising and planning the steps to get your business onto a healthy path.
A good analogy is to compare it with regularly servicing your vehicle; we look under the bonnet of your business to check your HR is fit for purpose and optimising your businesses performance.
What is the HR Healthcheck and what does it cover?
The healthcheck is a systematic review of your current HR policies, procedures, documentation, and practices to ensure legal compliance, identify areas for improvement, and enhance overall effectiveness. Some of the key areas of HR it explores are :
Recruitment and Selection
Contractual and Statutory Rights
Policies and Procedures
Compensation and Reward
Health and Safety
We will go through a questionnaire covering these and other topics, with someone in your business, to generate a picture of the help your business needs.
What will my business receive at the end of the HR Healthcheck?
At the end of the process, we will produce a report highlighting risk areas, measures that need to be taken and help you plan to address these.
How long will the HR Healthcheck take
The time this takes will depend on the level of detail provided however, we would expect the questionnaire to take approximately an hour. We will then aim to provide a report within 7 days.
