hr consulting that's collaborative pragmatic supportive

HR Solutions

As a WINC client, you will have one single dedicated HR Business Partner who will work with you to provide you with all of the HR support your business needs – meaning that you can be confident of meeting your legal requirements as an employer.

Our client relationships are our number one concern and something we are very proud of. Unlike an off-the-shelf / HR contact centre, your dedicated HR Business Partner will take the time to develop an understanding of the issues you’re facing, your requirements and your goals for the future.

Our tailored HR consulting services are aimed primarily at small to medium-sized business owners or managers who are looking for help in implementing or improving HR processes. We firmly believe that the HR approach should be simple and straightforward, with no mystery and no jargon. If you need advice, we will undertake a fair and truthful appraisal of your business and present recommendations based on your goals, not ours. This approach ensures that the service you receive is tailored to you, and you deal with one person who knows what is going on in your business.

WINC offers accessible and cost-effective HR support and services. We can help to revive a lacklustre recruitment process, develop a more engaging employer brand, implement robust systems, spruce up your induction day or streamline your organisational design. You can bolster your company vision and values, build effective people management programmes, implement legislative changes, create audit trails, improve performance and boost workplace relations with instant, gratifying results. Our consultants undertake regular, independent research to ensure we have the very latest information to hand relating to remuneration, legislation and trending employment issues across various industry sectors.

We can provide a rapid response unit for urgent requirements as well as subject matter experts for planned projects. You’ll find our rates attractive and our structure allows us to be both agile and focused. Services we offer include:

  • human resources operations planning
  • employee engagement techniques
  • technology system solutions
  • transformation programmes
  • organisational design
  • project management best practice
  • business process modelling
  • feasibility studies
  • contingency planning
  • leadership and stakeholder communications

Retained Service

Many customers enjoy the peace of mind of fixed fees, helping to accurately budget for the year ahead, and also compare the cost of in-house HR versus outsourcing.

Our Retained HR Service package includes:

  • unlimited expert advice
  • case management documents covering disciplinary, absence, grievance, redundancy and more
  • bespoke contracts of employment
  • bespoke employee handbooks
  • bespoke forms and templates
  • newsletters and legal updates

Our retained services are restricted to remote work, but do include Skype and conference call facilities with your HR partner.

HR Administration

For an additional 30% of the cost of the monthly retainer you can add HR Administration to your Retained HR Services package. This would include:

  • offer letters
  • contracts of employment
  • settlement agreements
  • exit paperwork
  • consultation letters
  • change of t&cs letters
  • ad-hoc support

Pay As You Go

A retained service and contract is not for everyone, many businesses prefer to simply pay-as-you-go for the tools and advice they need. The service offered to pay-as-you-go customers is the same as retained clients in so far as you will have one dedicated HR business Partner, who over time will get to know you and your business.

You don’t need to purchase hours in advance or in blocks, you will simply be invoiced periodically as agreed. Our pay-as-you-go services apply to both remote work and on-site work.

On-Site Support

We understand that sometimes remote advice and guidance is not enough, you need a HR professional right there with you onsite. All our HR business partners love getting out of the office and seeing clients in their work environments, meeting their team and getting a feel for the business.

We regularly visit clients to either support or take the HR lead on:

  • HR strategy and change management programmes
  • HR project delivery, including TUPE, restructuring and redundancy management
  • interviewing / open days and specialist recruitment campaigns
  • attending regional or board meetings to update the stakeholders on HR changes or to assist with the integration of HR objectives within broader strategy work
  • employee consultation programmes
  • negotiations including union negotiations / pay talks and works committees
  • exiting discussions
  • employee relations matters, investigations, hearings, appeals

Whatever your HR project we can ensure that it is completed on time, to your requirements and with minimal impact upon your diary and day-to-day operations.
