Impressed with your breadth of experience & attention to detail
St James Systems
I would like to offer you many thanks for the work you recently undertook for us in regard to the hiring of an apprentice. Your package of works, contracts of employment & employee handbooks were extremely useful, distilling your Consultancy's vast experience to fill the gaps in our systems.
Taking on employees can either move a business to the next step of it can cause untold effort to be wasted in management & the fee-earners to become mired in problems that stop them earning. I'm convinced that the fear of these problems is one of the things that holds back the growth of small buisnesses.
From an employee's perspective, the litle things often matter a lot: the things that you assume an employee knows is part of their job & that an employee feels they shold be paid extra for are a cause of unnecessary friction in a business. I'm confident that the contracts & procedures you have put in place will meant that we don't have these problems. I'm also confident that my business is on a more positive footing and less exposed to any negatives than it could possibly have been if I didn't use your services.
The advice you gave me on setting the correct evalution criteria for my recent hire, the contracts & the handbook mean that I am well placed to take my business to the next level as a result. If any problems do arise, I have the peace of mind of knowing that there is now a procedure in place & an understanding between my staff & I that I could not have hoped from before.
As ever, Jay, I'm impressed by your breadth of experience & your attention to detail. Your work removes the potetial worries & gripes relating to HR issues & ensures that staff become prized assets, working together for a common good.
