This organisation was worried about rising salary costs and found that they were focusing their time on the wrong tasks due to the way their roles were organised. With pensions auto-enrolment and rises in National Living Wage, they needed to reduce costs and make sure they were spending their money in the right places through better Human Resource planning.
This organisation had previously used a large HR outsourcing company, but as it didn’t include pro-active HR management they had not tackled a number of risk areas. We worked together on their HR strategy and put a plan in place that made significant progress against their organisational goals in the first 12 months.
We often share helpful resources and hold events.

Alice’s research into the people challenges faced by SME’s was interesting and thought provoking. Her presentation of the report highlights at Thames Valley Chamber of Commerce was engaging, clear and really focused the mind.
Alice is very knowledgeable and always up to date across the whole spectrum of HR issues. I can’t think of someone I would rather ask for advice.
The HR help was invaluable and Alice was not only a pleasure to work with but provided clear and confident advice throughout.
ITEC recently engaged Alice Francis to assist with a multifaceted TUPE migration. ITEC benefited greatly from Alice’s attention to detail and commitment to making sure of a job well done.
Alice's workshop on "Practical HR Strategy" opened my eyes to what a planned HR strategy can achieve and how it can be relevant for SMEs. A great investment of time that will make a real difference to the way that I work.
Working with 'Approach' has made a significant difference to our Organisation. Their support in helping us to implement our Business Plan and to remain focussed on our targets has been excellent. Thank you Approach Human Resources!
Alice understood the context of what I needed for my business and did an excellent piece of work that exactly met those needs. I feel much more secure having this in place.
We needed a review of our organisation structure, role descriptions and salaries and were delighted with the outcomes. Their approach was professional and demonstrated how quickly they were able to grasp our situation and issues.
Alice quickly understood the scope and context of the work required, identified key stakeholders, and engaged accordingly. Able to provide clear, concise summaries of options, related costs and benefits. Built great rapport.
