All employers have a requirement to have the key terms of employment in place for their employees, ideally when they start working with you, but at the very latest by 8 weeks post start date to meet with the law.
We offer a personalised service where we get to know more about you and your business to put together a HR Document bundle to use with your employees which will both set out the terms of your business relationship and protect your business.
We will provide you with Company branded Contracts of Employment, a GDPR fair processing notice and an Employee handbook containing all your Statutory and Company specific policies and procedures giving you peace of mind that you have everything covered.
If you have been an employer for a while, it may have been a number of years since you last revisited your contracts of employment and Employee handbook. In this case it is quite likely they will be out of date due to no longer reflecting current legislation and potentially not reflecting changes within your business. We can carry out a review of what you currently have, make recommendations and update them for you.
We understand the importance of finding the right people to work in your organisation and retaining them for the long term. We can assist you with all areas of recruitment including the following:
We can do as much or as little as you need in this process from helping you put together your own job adverts to then manage it yourself, through to us taking on the whole recruitment process end to end so that you can get involved at the final selection stage meaning the level of time you need to dedicate to this process is minimal but you still remain in control of the outcome of the process.
The great part about our recruitment service it is charged by the hour, rather than a percentage of salary which means it is a really cost effective way to outsource this service without it breaking the bank!
The experience someone has through the recruitment process and in their first few months in your business has a direct link to how long they are likely to remain working in your business.
We can help you put in place a new employee induction process to fit your organisation style and structure.
When dealing with restructures, redundancy and exiting employees from your business it is important to ensure the correct processes are followed to keep levels of risk low. We can advise you on, or fully deliver these projects for you to give you peace of mind that you meet with the requirements of the law and best practice.

Recruiting and inducting staff in to any business is costly, so it stands to reason that once you have your employees in place, you want to retain them for as long as possible. We can support you by carrying out exit interviews, covering pre-agreed content, to fully understand the reasons for an employee leaving your business to enable trends to be identified enabling your business to put action plans in place.
We can support you with employee retention.
As we contact your leaver as an impartial person, we find leavers tend to be more open around their reasons for leaving than if they had carried out an exit interview with someone from your business giving you the best value feedback to work from.
We work with you to agree the strategy around contacting your leavers, be that electronically or via phone, including the questions you would like us to cover with them and provide a report back following each completed interview along with trend data we build up from carrying out these interviews over time.
This service is suitable for businesses of all sizes as we work on a cost per interview basis.
Sickness absence from work, whether long or short term, can cause major disruption for businesses of any size.
We can help you deal with employee absence effectively and are confident in how to maintain contact with employees during absences of any kind and are able to hold effective return to work meetings when they return.
It is proven that organisations who don't hold return to work meetings have higher levels of absence so these really are vital to both take care of employee wellbeing but also to help keep levels of absence to a minimum.
Investigations, Disciplinaries and Grievances are areas that business owners and Line Managers often find difficult to handle, often due to a lack of experience of being too close to the situation to address it.
We can handle these tricky situations on your behalf from invite through to outcome so that you can be sure they are carried out in line with requirements of employment Law and best practice methods.
At Black Kat HR we also run regular training courses on handling these matters so that business owners and Line Managers can build confidence when dealing with these.
