Leeway has used CBR Business Solutions for many years for HR support, consultancy & training & would highly recommend them.  We have always found them very professional, providing clear guidance & training on a range of HR issues.  Kate recently delivered training to our staff on ‘The art of recruitment’, which they all rated as excellent & very informative.

How they work

Annual Contract

The majority of their clients choose an Annual Contract enabling them to contact us for HR advice throughout the year.  They will discuss with you what your HR requirements may be over the period of the contract and advise on the appropriate number of hours to purchase. The minimum number of hours is 3 hours per annum.  However, if something unforeseen happens that requires additional HR time, top-up hours can be purchased at any stage.

The Annual HR Contract rates are competitive and flexible depending on the number of hours purchased.

New clients choosing an Annual HR Contract  will also receive, as part of the Start-up Package, an HR Audit undertaken by one of their MCIPD qualified HR Consultants.  Also included in the Start-up Package is a full set of legislatively compliant HR Policies and Procedures and an Operations Manual which contains useful information and pro-forma documents on Staff Handbooks, Induction and Appraisal.  Their Annual HR Contract clients will also receive updated policies as legislation changes together with Employment Law updates and regular Focus-on… newsletters on topical HR matters.

HR Consultancy

CBR Business Solutions also provide an HR Consultancy service for clients who require additional HR support on specific or complex one-off issues.
