Roots HR is the UK leader in the HR consultancy and project management services marketplace for small to medium social sector employers. We exist to serve those with workforces from one volunteer up to 250 employees, which differentiates us from all other HR providers.
Human Resource Consultancy
We provide social sector organisations with high quality, tailored, practical, legally sound and affordable advice and support covering the whole employee lifecycle including:
- Recruitment and selection
- Onboarding, induction and probation
- Managing performance, including development
- Employee engagement
- Inclusion and wellbeing
- Employee relations issues or concerns, including disciplinaries, grievances and absence
- Managing change
We recognise the challenges for social sector organisations in accessing appropriate services and develop our services to meet the needs of the sector, in terms of culture, risk and scale.
What is HR Consulting?
We offer a range of employer-led HR services:
- COMPLY, our employment law and people management advice service which can be accessed either via a 12-month subscription or on an as and when required basis
- PERFORM, our service for ad-hoc HR projects
- GROW, our learning and development service.
Our HR consultancy and project management service, PERFORM, enables us to scope, plan and deliver a one-off HR project. This could be providing support with HR documentation, recruitment, pay and benefits, outplacement, restructuring, disciplinaries and investigations plus much more.
We work with an identified lead or sponsor within your organisation and recognise that the scale of a project will be proportionate to the size of your organisation.
What Does a Human Resource Consultant Do?
We have a team of highly skilled, technically knowledgeable, friendly and professional Consultants who bring with them substantial experience of having worked in social sector organisations. This enables them to quickly understand the people issues faced by your organisation and the ability to provide you with tailored, pragmatic HR solutions and advice.
When delivering your HR projects via our PERFORM service your named HR Consultant will work with an internal sponsor within your organisation to scope, plan and deliver your project within agreed timescales.
Benefits of Hiring an HR Consultant
The experience that our dedicated Consultants bring enables them to quickly understand the people issues faced by your organisation and the ability to provide you with tailored, effective solutions and advice.
As a social enterprise our services are designed to meet our clients’ needs and are not primarily driven by profit or shareholder return. Our approach to HR Consultancy is focussed on improving the management of people within social sector workforces, enabling them to best respond to external and internal forces whenever required.
- People management is inclusive, fair and lawful and feels “normal” to workforces
- Managers are better able to manage people
- People management risks are minimised in organisations
- Employees, workers and volunteers are retained so service delivery is stable and recruitment costs are minimised
- Key talent is retained within the social sector
- Organisations retain more of their income for service delivery and beneficiaries
What Businesses Can Benefit from HR Consultancy?
Our services are tailored to the values and needs of small to medium social sector employers with no, or limited, in-house HR support and their workforces.
