Support for SMEs

SMEs run by owner / managers and entrepreneurs are focused on growing their business, delivering great customer service and innovating. And because you have your hands full, effectively managing the people and people issues within a business can sometimes be forgotten about, even though you know it is essential to supporting your business goals.

To begin with, the owner / manager has the time to look after HR but as small businesses evolve the person responsible for people matters may change and approaches may differ. Over time specialist HR help may be needed, either to deal with a specific issue or to introduce a professional HR approach to people practices that support the organisation’s growth.

Drafting in expert HR support can help in a number of ways:

  • Identifying key strengths and weaknesses in the HR aspects of the management of the business
  • Identifying the right HR activities to focus on for maximum effect
  • Introducing new practices that enhance performance and support growth
  • Identifying the people and performance management practices you need and developing and implementing them with you
  • Working out the behaviours needed for business success and identifying ways of fostering them through better performance management, talent management and recruitment and selection
  • Focusing on development areas for the organisation
  • Developing and implementing effective people management activities
