Managing people doesn’t always go smoothly. It can be tricky to stay up-to-date with legal requirements and mistakes can be costly.

And, when you have a difficult situation to manage, we’ll help you and your team take the best course of action.

3. The right documents

Breathe HR logo
We partner with Breathe HR to get you the best in database management, analytics and more.
In this package, we become your trusted HR partner delivering ongoing support. Our first step is to conduct an HR audit. We then work with you to create a future-thinking people plan. Your policies and procedures are fine-tuned, and we work collaboratively and proactively on your people plan throughout the year.
Sometimes you reach a change point, or your existing HR structures are at their limits, and you would like targeted support where and when you need it. We help you deal with complex, and often time-consuming, people challenges, allowing you to focus on what your business needs to grow and what you need for peace of mind.
Your policies, employment contracts, and handbook are essential to help your employees understand who you are and set the right expectations. Whether you're a start-up, a growing business, or your documents need a refresh, we supply easy-to-understand documents that engage your employees, reflect your values and ensure you're legally compliant.
