We believe in sharing information for everyone. We have had enquiries from employees who need help before they sit an internal interview, right up to business owners who need help managing a disciplinary process. 

With this in mind, we have created this page which offers links to all things HR.

Absence – the invisible workplace bully

Ray Hoare talks to us about the 'invisible workplace bully' that is casual absence' and the real lack of regard for the impact on colleagues who have to fill in for the missing colleague. His talk recommends we take a more proactive, forthright and honest approach to have those taking such leave consider the wider implications of their actions and ultimately mend their ways for their colleagues but also for their own longer term reputation.

Managing Absence at Work Webinar

Until the early twentieth century, businesses had a clear rule: no work, no pay. If you did not turn up, you simply didn’t get paid. Today we have a multitude of absence management procedures and policies covering all types of absence and in many cases – paid time off for absence.
