Support for larger organisations
Larger organisations will have their own HR Manager or a small team.
However, sometimes you will need specific skills that your own people don’t have, or you want an external independent person to handle a sensitive grievance, or you’d just like an extra pair of hands to deliver an important deadline.
I can come in just for the days you need me to do specific pieces of work. That’s cost effective and means there’s no delay in getting things done. Judith Coslett HR consultant Guildford
Typical areas of support
Investigating allegations and producing a report suitable for grievance or disciplinary use
Employment policies: reviewing and updating to current legislation
Comments from clients
We brought Judith in to conduct an investigation into allegations of bullying. We felt we needed someone external and independent to do that. She interviewed 13 members of staff and produced signed statements in a consistent format. She then wrote a comprehensive report which summarised the situation, evaluated whether the alleged behaviours constituted bullying, compiled the evidence under appropriate headings, assessed the credibility of the witnesses, put forward options for resolving the situation and made recommendations as the investigator. We particularly valued the fact that all this was done within a week which enabled us to take prompt action.
Head of HR
Judith was recommended to us and I commissioned her to review the results of a membership survey and draft a document to give advice on best practice on employment practices across a range of issues. She was very thorough and her written work was clear and accurate. She took the time to understand our members’ work and ensure that the advice she produced was appropriate. The comprehensive document was approved by our Professional Standards Committee and is now published to our members.
