Human Resources

We have a simple aim, which is to provide a personal service to help you address all your personnel issues.

We provide practical advice, support and training on employment law and best practice people issues, enabling you to focus on running your business.

Our expertise is with small/medium-sized employers (SME’s). We understand their problems and apply common sense solutions that meet current employment legislation. We believe in building a strong relationship with clients by visiting their company, not just providing a voice on the telephone.

We provide professional support by highly qualified and experience specialists at reasonable prices, which are a fraction of the cost of employing your own HR Staff.

We offer up to 1 hour free consultation to answer your current problem.

OTC Human Resource Specialists provide a range of personal, cost effective services which includes:

    Business Support Package
    Consultancy
    Training  

"let OTC provide you with the advice and support you need on employment law"

 
Business Support Package

The Business Support Package is a cost effective longer-term solution for customers with a need for on going HR services rather than one off project work or assignments.

Includes:

  • Telephone and Email Advice
  • HR Business Support (Advice on Employment Law, Managing Absence, Discipline and Grievance, Recruitment and Selection, Appraisals and Managing Performance, Equality and Diversity at Work)
  • This is a contract offering Personnel Support as an on going service over the 12-month period of the contract. E.g. 12 months

The service includes:

    Personal response for immediate advice, by telephone and email.
    Advice is personal to each organisation to account for the culture within the business
    The problem can be urgent, important, immediate or long-term.
    We make it our business to visit and get to know our clients and the cultural issues of their business.
    We initially undertake an audit of their current HR systems and procedures and provide a detailed report of our findings and any recommendations.
