Topaz HR services in detail Getting HR right is all about getting the details right - Topaz HR can help you work through the details, the policies, the procedures... and the legislation, to arrive at a professional, rounded approach to all aspects of HR in your business. 

 Contracts of employment Having a carefully written employment contract which reflects your organisation ensures that you and your employees are completely clear on all respective employment rights and responsibilities. This can be vital in helping to resolve any dispute which may arise.  

Staff Handbooks 
Much wider in scope than the contract of employment, a well-structured staff handbook can cover all of these areas: 
 
Policies & procedures 
Company ethos 
Training plans 
Career development 
Communication and participation 
Team working 
Performance appraisal guidelines 
Job challenges/level of autonomy 
 
Putting together such as wide-ranging document can feel a daunting prospect. Topaz HR has produced many of these for companies of all sizes and we can give you a proven and effective structure + wording as a start-point and then work with you to develop a staff handbook to reflect the ethos and aspirations of your business and the challenges of your sector. 
 
If you already have a staff handbook in place, Topaz HR can carry out a review of your policies and procedures. Ensuring that you meet current Employment Legislation and your procedures accurately reflect what happens in your business. 
Employment law advice and compliance 
Employment law can be a minefield! And it's changing all the time! We can help you navigate through the complexities of employment legislation and give you a regular digest of key issues you need to be aware of. 
 
Absence management 
Absence can be a costly drain on your company's resources - not only are you a person down, with all the attendant strain on resources/service levels elsewhere in your business, it also causes potential discontent and resentment among other employees if not dealt with, and seen to be dealt with, quickly and effectively. 
 
However, absence must be dealt with fairly, as false accusations about the nature of the absence can lead to costly disputes. Be sure of your rights and responsibilities and of the correct approach to take by talking to Topaz. 
 
 
Restructuring and redundancy advice 
We are in the middle of the toughest economic conditions for a generation. Inevitably this is taking its toll on businesses and their staffing levels. If your business is faced with the need to restructure and to make staff redundant, it may well be a new experience for you. It is vital that it is handled correctly, fairly and with sensitivity. 
 
Let Topaz be your guide through this difficult process. 
 
Retaining and developing your staff 
Retaining, developing and incentivising your staff can be just as important a source of business growth and success as finding new clients or creating clever marketing campaigns. A motivated team will go that extra mile for you and help you deliver world class customer services 
 
Channeling, developing and sustaining that enthusiasm and skill takes careful management. Putting in place motivational performance management systems ensures that your staff are rewarded and incentivised in a fair, professional, transparent way. Working a system out from a blank sheet of paper can be tough - Topaz can help you design the ideal system quickly and easily.
