HR Services & Solutions

HR and Employment Law responsibilities and activities are increasingly complex. Employees carry a high level of risk to business owners and directors, which can have serious implications if they fall breach of their legal obligations. Outsourcing HR responsibilities safeguards against such risk and costs a fraction of the cost to manage internally.

Keeping HR Simple

Who are ‘Keeping HR Simple’?

Keeping HR Simple is who we are and what we do for you and your business. There are some complex issues within HR, but we believe that most of what your business needs can be kept simple and straightforward.

We provide you with straightforward, practical hands-on advice to help manage your staff and HR needs, giving you the confidence to handle situations correctly and professionally.

Supporting you whether you employ a single person or many people; giving you peace of mind that you are doing the right things at the right time – for you, your employees and your business.

  • Straight talking – no jargon guaranteed
  • Practical advice you can use
  • Cost-effective services for your business
  • Recruitment support.

Keeping HR Simple’s recruitment method is simple, straightforward and proactive in finding the right people for you and your business. We support you with your recruitment structure, process and administration to find the very best candidates.

Our recruitment is affordable, effective and gives you the confidence and support you need. We are able to:

  • Dramatically increase the ability to find the right person
  • Massively reduce the risk of employing the wrong person
  • Manage the critical probation period so it’s risk-free for your business.

Managing your team

Your employees will be your greatest asset or a devastating liability and getting the best from your employees is key to your company’s success. We support you with all aspects of employee engagement, giving you the confidence to handle any situation correctly, quickly and professionally.

Managing staff can be a challenge but getting the basics right can really give you solid foundations to work from. There are certain legal requirements when you have employees and as a minimum, you need to be sure that you are complying with UK employment law. You need to have the right contracts of employment in place to suit your business and your needs at that time, whether they be temporary contracts, fixed-term contracts, zero-hours contracts or permanent contracts.

As well as complying with employment legislation, you also need advice on policies and procedures which are tailored to suit your business needs. Our HR support will help you to make sure that you have the right policies and procedures in place to manage your employees but also to clearly set your expectations on the rules of the company, the way you operate and what kind of conduct is and isn’t acceptable.

Whether you are taking on your first employee or managing a larger number of people, we have a solution for you to learn how to manage staff and deal with any problems with employees.

Exiting staff

Just as employees join your business, there will come a time when they leave your business, for whatever reason. When an employee chooses to resign, that can be a difficult time for a business; however, dismissing or exiting an employee from your business can be much worse.

If an employee decides to resign, we will support you with:

  • Finding out why they are leaving and what, if anything, you should do to resolve the situation to minimise any future risk to your business;
  • Carrying out exit interviews so you can ask the right questions to help you learn for the future;
  • Accepting resignations correctly and putting the practical arrangements in place around termination of employment.

Testimonial for Purple Haze by Pretty Small Shoes
Deciding to outsource our telephone answering service to Purple Haze has been so easy and hassle-free. Not only do the team at Purple Haze do a great job with answering our calls and dealing with our customers, but they were also so supportive with getting us set-up and are quick to respond to any issues as they arise – they’ll even call customers back to update them on their queries!  I would highly recommend the Purple Haze team to other businesses looking for a friendly yet professional and reliable telephone or admin service.
