Are you terrified of employing your first ever employee?

Does the idea of an employment tribunal give you nightmares?

 

Here’s why 👇

 

🍇 You want to grow your team but…

👉 You worry about what you’ll do if the work dries up. 

 

🍇 You want to take on staff but…

👉You worry about how you’ll get rid of them if they don’t work out

 

🍇 You want to be an employer but…

👉 You feel a bit sick about the cost of it all

But it doesn’t have to be this way for you…

 

🍷 Imagine having a plan of action and clear options within your employment contract if an employee doesn’t work out. 

 

🍷  Imagine if the work actually doubles because of your new employee! 

 

🍷  Imagine knowing that whatever happens with your team, you have a safety net.

I am Shona, Founder and Director of Lilac HR. Based on the Norfolk/

our two horses. I adore country music and red wine! 

 

I LOVE resolving challenging cases for my clients. Whether it’s a long term absence

case or a disciplinary matter, I love getting stuck in and giving my clients step by step support to manage the situation to a win-win resolution. 

 

I’m fully CIPD qualified and I’ve spent 10 years of my life working in Human Resources functions across a variety of industries including spending 4 of those years specialising in Employee Relations in social care.

FAQs

Will I have to sign up for long contracts? 

No, at Lilac HR we don't believe in tying you in to long contracts for a "good" price because we understand how quickly your business needs can change. We like your HR support to be able to move with you.

How does it work if I have a disciplinary issue that needs handling?

With any ER issue, I take the role of your HR Manager and support you as the employer to handle the issue. I can take over the management of investigations, draft the appropriate documentation for your review, support in hearings and take notes as well as advise on the overall process. I will always guide you through the management steps needed to manage a case.

Will you just do all my HR stuff for me?

No, most HR processes need to be manager-led to be effective. However, you will have me in your back pocket to help, advise and provide you with all the tools you need.

What about Payroll? 

Payroll is not something I am qualified to do, but I can point you in the direction of people who are. You can use your Breathe HR system to prepare payroll reports.

Do I actually NEED HR? 

HR is like your accountant. You could go it alone, but it will be more time consuming, stressful and expensive in the long run. Having HR support saves you time, money and a lot of drama!

What if I use more hours than my plan allows?

I send all my clients quarterly usage reports so that we can assess whether we need to upgrade your plan or do things differently within your current plan. If you use up all your support within your plan, or would like anything extra, it is charged at an hourly rate.
