    The Hr Dept Presentation For Linkedin 241110 The Hr Dept Presentation For Linkedin 241110 Presentation Transcript

      • The HR Department
      • Presented by David Bell, Managing Director
    • Our Mission
      • To make it easier and cheaper for organisations to comply with their obligations as employers and to provide clients with the expertise and support required to create and maintain a comprehensive and legally compliant human resource function, without the overhead of a full time HR professional .
    • What are our services?
      • We have 6 main services:
      • HR audits
      • Drafting employment contracts and staff handbooks to clients;
      • Provide Annual support on minor queries plus we keep the handbook and contracts updated;
      • Providing legal advice to employers and employees;
      • Carrying out/assisting clients with investigations, disciplinary and grievance procedures, hearing appeals;
      • Outsourced/Contracted HR services/Training.
    • What are our services?
      • 1. HR audits
      • We audit a business to assess its level of compliance with over 40 pieces of employment legislation, including establishing if it will pass a NERA inspection;
      • We generally meet with the client and go through a series of questions, examine any contracts and policies that are in place;
      • After the meeting we collate the information and produce a comprehensive report highlighting the risks to the business and recommendations on how to reduce that risk
      • Currently a flat fee for carrying out the audit (€1,000-€1,500) plus VAT
      • This increases for companies with over 10 staff by approx €20 per employee.
    • What are our services?
      • Providing contracts and staff handbooks-3 ways
      • We have a software program and questionnaire that produces a contract of employment for each staff together with a staff handbook tailored to the clients requirements. The cost of this is between €1,000 and €1,500
      • We have developed a seminar model where we go through an implementation questionnaire with the attendees at the same time and produce the staff handbook. The cost of this would be around €400 per attendee;
      • We recently launched a web based version where the user will pay a flat fee, fill in the questionnaire online and will be able to download bespoke contracts and staff handbook with three packages ranging from €99 to €850 (which includes annual support payment)-full details on our website www.thehrdepartment.ie
    • What are our services?
      • 3. Annual support for minor queries and keeping the handbook and contracts updated;
      • Usually taken up by clients who have gone through the audit and implementation
      • Currently €500 per annum
      • Includes access to staff for HR queries,
      • We ensure the staff handbook is updated
      • We send out regular HR and Employment Law related articles and information .
    • What are our services?
      • 4. Provide legal advice on Employment law to employers
      • Primarily carried out by the MD and part time solicitor who assists me
      • Because of relatively low cost base we can charge much less hourly rates then similarly experienced solicitors;
      • We have a number of consultants that can be on call if required so we are very efficient and cost effective
      • We have a wide range of experience and experts in specific areas and we cover many industries and sectors
    • What are our services?
      • 5. Outsourced/Contracted HR services/Training ;
      • A new service that is being provided to larger clients because of demand;
      • Aimed at businesses that can’t afford a full time HR manager but need the service;
      • Based on a 6-12 month renewable contract
      • HR consultant attends on site once a week/month and is also available on other days or on telephone if required;
      • HR consultant is contracted by the HR Department and we invoice the client directly;
    • What are our services?
      • 6. Carrying out/assisting clients with investigations, disciplinary and grievance procedures;
      • Another service being requested by current and new clients;
      • Many businesses too small or don’t have the staff to be seen to be independent;
      • Benefits the client as is seen to be completely objective as we have access to a number of consultants who may not have any previous contact with the client;
      • Charged to client on a project basis and same payment structure with the HR consultant
      • MD’s legal background greatly enhances the credibility of this service
    • Who are our Clients?
    • What makes us different?
        • Specialist solicitors and HR advisors working together to provide the full range of services;
        • We only act for employers
        • We practice prevention rather than cure-a lot of solicitors are brought in as last resort-firefighting-we are already in the business so we try and avoid situations
        • We are comparatively priced compared to many solicitors
        • Our consultants are based around the country compared to a lot of HR consultants who are limited to one location
        • The current development of the online staff handbook allows the us target companies across the country.
        • The seminar approach can also be extended throughout the country.

      • Robert Brophy- International rugby Board (IRB) We engaged the services of The HR Department to conduct an audit of our HR Procedures. This work was completed and the findings resulted in an update of our employment contracts and staff handbook. We realised this was also a service which would be of benefit for our clients and since then we have introduced The HR department to a number of clients, all of whom have been reassured to know that they are now compliant with all current employment legislation. We have also used the services of David Bell to consult on any HR matters and we have found David’s knowledge to be invaluable in responding to matters which are of significant importance to our clients and the development of their business. Since first meeting with David, he has been extremely helpful and proactive in his approach and I commend his professional work ethic and care and attention to clients - every client is made to feel like his only client. Neal Morrison- McInerneySaunders Chartered Accountants and Registered Auditor

      • Anne Andrews-General Manager- Expo Events
      • Stephen Murtagh & Sons employed the services of The HR Department in September 2007. Their professional attitude and meticulous attention to detail to our specific requirements were exactly what our company needed. From initial consultation through to audit and finally presentation of official personalized handbook was both informative and very useful. Their follow up on related HR issues has been also most helpful to our company. We would be very confident and happy to recommend their services to companies similar to ourselves. Colin J Murtagh, Managing Director- Stephen Murtagh & Sons Limited
      • As a business that is expanding and taking on new staff we found the HR Department’s approach to be exactly what we required. The audit process was very useful for establishing what policies we wanted and also made us appreciate what our obligations were as an employer. We now have an excellent contract for all our employees and a staff handbook that reflects our requirements. I would highly recommend the HR Department to any business that may need HR advice and help both putting the right policies in place and helping us into the future.
