Happy Employees, Happy Business: Why Retained HR Support Matters

In today’s competitive business landscape, retaining top talent is crucial for success. But with the rise of remote work and the evolving needs of employees, companies need to go beyond traditional HR practices to truly thrive. Enter retained HR support, a powerful strategy that shows your commitment to your people and reaps significant benefits for your business.

Here’s why retained HR support matters:

1. Enhanced Accessibility and Convenience: Having HR professionals readily available retained removes geographical barriers and provides employees with immediate access to support. This fosters a culture of open communication and empowers them to address concerns promptly, minimising delays and frustrations.

2. Personalised Support and Guidance: Retained HR professionals can build closer relationships with employees, allowing for a deeper understanding of their individual needs and situations. This personalised approach enables them to offer tailored guidance and support, whether it’s navigating company policies, resolving workplace issues, or simply offering a listening ear.

3. Proactive Problem-solving and Conflict Resolution: By being present within the physical workspace, HR can identify and address potential issues early on. This proactive approach helps nip problems in the bud before they escalate, fostering a more positive and productive work environment for everyone.

4. Increased Employee Satisfaction and Engagement: When employees feel valued and supported by their company, their satisfaction and engagement soar. Retained HR demonstrates your commitment to their well-being, leading to a more positive work experience and a stronger sense of belonging.

5. Improved Employer Branding and Talent Acquisition: A company that prioritises employee well-being and offers retained HR support stands out in the market. This not only enhances your employer brand but also attracts and retains top talent who value accessible and personalised support from their HR team.

Beyond these benefits, retained HR offers invaluable support to people managers:

Ad-hoc People Manager Questions: Whether it’s handling a tricky performance review or navigating a sensitive employee situation, retained HR can provide immediate guidance and support to people managers, empowering them to deal with challenges effectively.

Recruitment Queries: From helping write compelling job descriptions to offering assistance with CV sifting and interview preparation, retained HR can be a valuable partner throughout the recruitment process, ensuring the selection of the best candidates.

Coaching on the Spot: Retained HR can offer real-time coaching and support to people managers, helping them develop their leadership skills, communication strategies, and conflict resolution techniques.

Investing in retained HR support is an investment in your most valuable asset – your people.
By prioritising their well-being, fostering open communication, and creating a supportive environment, you can unlock their full potential, contributing to a happier, more productive, and ultimately, more successful business.

Remember: Retained HR support isn’t just about compliance or resolving issues; it’s about building trust, fostering a sense of community, and creating a thriving work environment where everyone feels valued, empowered, and supported. This, in turn, becomes the foundation for your long-term business success.

While some might assume dedicated HR support comes with a hefty price tag, retained HR offers a cost-effective alternative to traditional in-house models. We offer flexible packages that tailor support to your specific needs. This allows you to access expertise via phone, video call, or even regular in-person visits, depending on your preference.

By partnering with us as a local retained HR provider you gain access to valuable expertise, personalised support, and a genuine human connection for your employees, all while keeping your budget in check.
