Theory of Change
At Roots HR CIC we believe that social sector organisations can be more effective at achieving their aims through effective people management. We also know how difficult it is to access good quality HR advice, training, and support. This is why we offer COMPLY, our market leading people management advice service, to make a difference by helping micro, small and medium social sector organisations achieve greater impact though better people management.
Roots HR will release 1 FREE Toolkit per month until June 2022 so you can look forward to implementing the following in your organisation: Recruitment - Selection - Pre-Employment Checks - Induction - Probation - Agile Appraisal - Wellbeing at Work - Pay and Benefits - Personnel Files - Leavers - Sickness Absence - Under Performance .

Update on Right to work Checks
Since the start of the Covid pandemic, the Home Office introduced temporary changes to right to work checks. Essentially, it is permitted to acquire evidence of right to work without the need to obtain the physical documents for inspection. This was welcomed by the sector as it allowed employers to employ new staff remotely without the need to meet physically to check the documents. The temporary changes were to end on 5 April 2022.
The Home Office has now advised that the digital checks will become a permanent feature of right to work checks.
