We reviewed the other packaged services out there that are aimed at hard pressed business owners and senior managers. Most offer a bank of document templates, access to a general telephone helpline and some degree of insurance cover in the event of an employment tribunal claim.
Over the years we have been approached by a number of businesses disappointed to find that such services often failed to deliver when the need is greatest. There have been situations where standard employment contract templates have not protected the business in the event of a key salesperson leaving with lucrative client contacts, or where the telephone helpline is insufficiently responsive during the course of a fast moving problem, or where the company encouraged to settle on poor terms to ‘close the case down’.
Harrowells Assist has been created to tackle these kinds of issues head on. You get bespoke documentation tailored to your business; responsive advice in person, over the telephone or by email from a specialist employment law solicitor who knows your business and optional insurance cover which integrates with the advice you receive from your solicitor.
An innovative aspect of our package is that we also offer tailored training for your line managers. If they understand the importance of compliance and how to deal with situations that can arise, you can shift your organisation from one that is constantly reacting to issues to one that is proactive and avoids problems or – at the very least – can nip them in the bud.
