Business Healthcheck – HR Manual

Our HR Manual is the result of six months product development, including client research, and we are confident it will bring real value to your business. Not only will it help you comply with the law, it will also help you get the most from your people.

You answer a series of questions on screen prompted by a simple program and it will produce your personalised policies and procedures.

You can use it to set and communicate your own internal standards, and you can be confident of its relevance through regular updates that reflect changes in employment legislation.

The manual covers four areas:
  • HR Policies & Procedures
  • Practical HR Processes
  • Recruiting and Retaining Staff Processes
  • Health & Safety Policies and Procedures
…and each area includes
