As the UK slowly lifts COVID-19 restrictions, more and more staff are returning to the workplace.
Throughout this time we have seen greater emphasis on 2 key business areas:
The Government has created a new employment status – ‘furlough’ – which has kept HR professionals on their toes, with all of the ‘lay-offs’, short term working, reasonable adjustments, redundancies and tribunals that have come as a consequence of the pandemic. Hopefully now these HR people will be looking towards recruitment, performance appraisals, promotions and scaling up.
On the Health and Safety side of things, the whole world has had a crash course in ‘risk management’ and an increased awareness of what a risk assessment is, and how it is used to manage workplace hazards.
Adams Moore have partnered with HELP (helpgb.com) who offer a range of solutions, tailored to each business, to navigate a sensible path through these two crucial business areas. HELP offers an outsourced function working as an extension of your own team, without the tie into a long-term contract.
If you are struggling in one of these areas, or just wish to validate that what you have is effective, HELP are happy to conduct an initial review, free of charge. If you would like an introduction, please contact Sellena on 01827 54944.
