Case Study 1 - UK Start-up Company

In May 2010 we were approached by a Company who had recently set up in the UK to see how we could support them with their immediate and longer term requirements for HR, Employee Benefit and Payroll support.

Phase 1 – Situation
Up until May 2010 the Company had employed people on a contract basis, both in the UK and internationally.

To ensure sustainable growth and to position itself within the UK market place they had set up a UK entity and wanted to commence with the implementation of their business development strategy.

The Company’s overall objective was to ensure that all the required processes and procedures were in place and documented at an early stage of their growth so that this could be built upon and that good governance could be demonstrated from the outset.

In order to achieve this they decided to work with us as we could provide them with the HR infrastructure and support enabling the Directors and the senior management team to focus on the areas where their expertise lie, safe in the knowledge that HR was being looked after.

The Company’s immediate needs were support with:

  • Contracts of Employment
  • Payroll
  • An Employee Handbook

Once in place, attention was then turned to:

  • A Compensation and Benefit strategy
  • Financial Education and Advice
  • A Stock / Share option plan
  • Appraisal process
  • A Learning and Development Programme

We also appointed to provide ongoing consultancy advice and administration support.

Results

To ensure that we met the Company’s objectives our services were implemented in three phases:

  • Phase 1 – Immediate Requirements
  • Phase 2 – Ongoing Consultancy Advice and Administration Support
  • Phase 3 – Future Requirements

Structuring our services in this way enabled the Company to implement a strategy that could be built upon in a controlled and cost effective way.
