Identifying the right service for your business and staff can be a challenging task.  

The first step is to complete our brief business needs analysis tool. This will establish what your immediate needs are as well as identifying your medium to long term goals.

From this we can recommend a range of options based on your budget while also maximising on your own resources, so you only pay for what you need.

Recruitment – Need some help but don’t want to pay agency fees?

As a small business owner or manager, you are already busy enough, doing what you do to run your day to day operations, keep your customers and clients happy all while you strive to grow it. The last thing you want to do is take the necessary time out to find the right staff.

You may have put an advert up on a job website with a close off date and wait as the CV’s pile up (and keep piling up) then when you go through them, the candidates you really like have already secured another job so you are back at square one or, worse, nobody replies to your ad that comes even close to what you are looking for.

Some business people would like to be able to wave a magic wand and have their new employee arrive on their doorstep the next morning ready to start work - that's where we come in!   

We don't actually have a wand (not a real one anyway) but we know how to weave our way through the recruitment process and step in at any stage of the phase to help you through your day so your valuable time isn't taken away from your business and your evenings stay free to chill out and re-energise, ready for the next day.

Recruitment Package Stages & Phases Include:

  • Job Description - Functions of the role, person specification & Skills/qualifications required
  • Vacancy Listing - Identifying how and where to attract candidates
  • Writing The Job Advertisement - Getting your pitch to the right audience
  • Screening Candidates/CV's and Short Listing
  • Interviewing - question preparation, conducting and decision making
  • Reference/Background Checks
  • Job Offer/Negotiations/Contract

Now They Are Hired - You want to get them Fired *UP*

Career Development Planning - Ensuring Success

  • Initial Induction/Company Introduction
  • Learning Plan - developed around key role functions
  • Coaching - Motivational, skill development, talent enhancement and meeting key performance indicators.

We are all about adding exceptional value for what we do and partner with you along the way for as long as you require. We will work with you for a few hours, a month or 12, we will do what it takes to help you achieve your goals.

Finding and Hiring Staff - There is more to it than meets the eye!

Just like it's been said of some people, there is also more to it than meets the eye when hiring staff and it's not over once you've found the perfect person - that's just the beginning!

Once they turn up for work, they need to be settled in (induction), have clarity around what is expected of them and start to create some professional development goals for the next year. You have already invested a lot of time and money into hiring someone so of course you want to have a maximum return on your investment, while providing them the opportunity to grow and thrive in their career.

A simple and effective Career Development Plan that we set up and you run or regular professional development coaching provided by us at agreed intervals (perhaps at the end of the first month, bi-monthly then at 6 and 12 months) can make an amazing difference your staffs performance and their contribution to your business, ultimately resulting in increased productivity and sales for you.

As an employer, it is your responsibility to do everything you can to support a new employee to be successful in their new job - you owe it to your business success after all.

Did you know a lot of people managers admit they just don't get around to doing performance reviews for whatever reason? They also don't realise it could be costing their business by loss of performance, productivity, service delivery or sales.

Often staff reviews get passed over unless someone isn’t performing so how do you reward high achievers and provide attraction factors – benefits to your key staff to retain them so they don’t drop a letter on your desk on Friday afternoon?

In a nutshell (and that happens to be the translation to Andi’s surname) - we offer a range of comprehensive services and programmes that will align with your business. If you don't need it all, we can deliver independent stages of any service or programme as and when you need them.

When we see other opportunities that will add value to your business that we can't deliver on, we are sure to know someone who can and are happy to refer you on to them.
