Employment or HR issues?
Sometimes everyone needs HR support services.
Employment law is complex – coping on your own brings significant risk. You don’t want to break the law or face expensive tribunals but no small business can afford HR professionals.
Even so, you need access to reliable advice. The HR Dept. provides you with Professional HR services with up-to-date expertise whenever you require it without breaking the bank.
Get pragmatic HR advice by telephone!
For a small monthly fee you can also have unlimited telephone HR advice from our qualified HR professionals. With a practical and pragmatic approach, we guide you through any employment issue from a disciplinary and grievance procedure to dealing with sickness absence. We draft all letters and support you throughout the process. Just as crucially, we allow you to manage your staff in the way your business needs. What is more if you follow our advice, any possible tribunal expenses will be covered.
With this service your employee contract and handbook are revised every six months to keep it absolutely up to the minute.
On going HR support
Sometimes you'll find that you need more ambitious or strategic projects which need greater levels of hr support. We're happy to quote on supporting you with:-
I can honestly say that I've never made life easy for myself but it certainly hasn't been dull, especially the past 4 years.
I remarried in April 2007 and my wife Jan and I (together with my lovely stepdaughter, Hazel, who has autisim) decided to move to Ireland. In doing so I gave up a steady job working as a HR Manager for a waste management company and ended up in Galway working for a Oil Distribution/Petrol Forecourt organisation, as their HR Manager. The experience was invaluable and as the Irish would say it was great "craic" (pronounced crack, meaning fun).
For family reasons we moved back to Charlton, London but I travel back to Ireland as and when required where I still provide HR advice, support and guidence. It also gives me the chance meet up with some wonderful people, whom I count as my friends.
Coming back to London and in my mid 50's, I decided to set up my own business and now operate a franchise through the HR Dept. supporting small businesses in "keeping it people legal".
Wearing my Fulfil HR services hat I specialise in supporting companies in discovering and identifying latent talent within their organisation, using coaching to help nurture and grow people who will be the future of the company in the years ahead (I obtained a Business & Executive Coaching Diploma whilst in Ireland).
The O'Keeffe family motto is "Nothing is Difficult to the Brave & Faithful" which I have lived by, even when life can be difficult at times. There's a lot to be said for attending the University of Life and learning new skills.
