Your People. Your Profits.
I've created the People Power Programme specifically for small businesses, based on 20 years working with businesses like yours and proud, passionate business owners just like you.
This Programme is designed to help small businesses who have a few employees - maybe 10, 20 or even 50 or more - not enough to have your own HR Manager. 
In summary, let's empower You and Your Team to generate your business success. We focus on 3 areas:

1.  Employment Law Compliance and Managing People

2.  Confidence, Performance and Team Relationships 

3.  Skills building

Less than 2 years service means they can't take me to Tribunal, right?
- WRONG! -
Employees can make claims for Discrimination, Whistleblowing, Holiday Pay 
and a whole host of other 'automatically unfair dismissal' complaints
without 2 years service. You MUST always take advice. 

The ‘compensation culture’ is stronger than ever

‘Compliance First’

Employment disputes are a fact of life for all employers.  Therefore, it’s all about how to minimise them.


Your best defence is to ‘be prepared’ – start with legally compliant contracts, policies and procedures and train your managers and supervisors so that when you do have to take action, it is fair, reasonable and complies with your policies. More...
