Our HR specialists can create your Human Resource policies based on your unique business needs and the latest legislation. Alternatively, our fully-qualified team can review all your existing policies and provide a gap analysis, allowing us to identify areas for improvement.

Once the analysis is complete and policies are updated, an employee handbook will be created containing updated policies and procedures for your staff and management team.

How is Wurkplace different from other HR Companies? We are a small team of highly-qualified HR experts, providing a fully customised HR service that fits your company! We won’t make you sign any long-term contracts because we don’t believe in them – you should retain control over your organisation.

We also do not use call centres, when you ring us you will be connected directly to one of our experts – meaning you get the information and guidance you need, straight away. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our HR specialists with any queries on HR policies or Employment Law.

There are some HR policies that according to UK law must be in place! They are an outline of employers and employees rights and responsibilities.

Usually, these policies are communicated to staff by the Employee Handbook and/or Contracts. The UK Government has set out all the required policies and if you do not relay them to your employees, you could have unfair dismissal cases in the future.

 

Standard HR Policy Examples

We have listed a number of the standard HR policies which we produce on behalf of our client base:

 

3 of the Most Important Policies that are Required by UK Law

When employing a new member of staff it is required by law that you ensure the new employee has the right to work in the UK (proof of citizenships, identity, address or visa.) You need to decide their wage which must be at least minimum wage, you should also consider when you’ll be paying them (weekly, monthly, etc.).

UK law states you must provide the Terms of Employment and a Contract to your new employee under the Employment Rights Act 1996.

HR policies should flow from HR strategies, and complement your HR procedures. Manager guides and standard letters are also provided by us, to assist in implementing policies and enforcing procedures.

Wurkplace’s service includes regular updates for HR policies to ensure they are in line with the latest, ever-changing legislation.

The company offers leadership development programmes to provide you with the means to understand:

 

What do HR Policies do for your Business?

  1. They protect your business from legal issues – allowing for smooth sailing in operations and reducing the likelihood of legal proceedings.
  2. Provide consistency – prevents employees from being dissatisfied as standards will stay the same over time.
  3. Improve organisational structure – HR policies can outline your companies culture and provide guidelines which can help your business grow.

Case Study

A leading document management company named cleardata came to us seeking full HR support and an implementation of a brand new HR system.

cleardata are a fast-growing business that is based in Newcastle, with offices now in London and Hawarden and they specialise in document scanning, data capture, archive storage and document processing services.

When they approached us, cleardata had no real HR procedures in place and they were operating on old contracts and handbooks, which needed an urgent update. There were no director contracts or job roles in place, and we needed to change this quickly.

cleardata had good management in places, but HR had been placed on the backburner because of the fast-growing rate of the business. This is why cleardata enlisted Wurkplace’s help to give them structure and updated their procedures. We went in and gave them a full action plan, which was analysed over a 30/60/90 day period.

There was a lot of work to be done regarding their contracts, so we reconstructed them and split them into contracts for directors, managers and employees. They also needed a way to manage their staff more effectively and a system for keeping track of holidays, absence, etc. Lucky for them, Wurkplace had the answer.

The implementation of our HR system provided cleardata with the easily management tool they needed, allowing them to track holidays and absence easier. This was good news for the payroll department, as they were able to keep track of this information and implement it into the system.

Now that all of these new procedures had been put in place, things were a lot easier to manage. Two years on and cleardata are now taking out more management and training courses with us, training their directors and managers. We look forward to continuingly working with them for years to come.

“Wurkplace have been an essential part of shaping cleardata to what it is today. We are very thankful for the hard work and dedication they provided when it came to establishing structure in the business. We couldn’t imagine going anywhere else for all of our HR needs. We’re excited to keep working alongside Wurkplace for the foreseeable future.”
