Human resources company offer free services to social enterprises

with one comment

To mark Social Enterprise Day 2010 on Thursday 18th November, Roots Human Resources CIC is offering a one-year retained human resources consultancy service of up to two hours per month FREE OF CHARGE for two social enterprises working towards sustainability.

Funded by Roots HR’s trading surpluses, and coming at a time when the third sector is coming to terms with cuts following October’s comprehensive spending review, the subscriptions may be used to help the recipient organisations to restructure, diversify and move towards sustainability.

Roots HR’s Chief Executive, Jan Golding, said: “Although there is a political focus on civil society organisations in a way we have never previously seen, this is still a very challenging time for all small and medium-sized social enterprises, charities and voluntary and community groups.

“Poor people management can detract from front line service delivery through under-performance, disputes, conflict and employee absence and we are in a position to help at least two social enterprises with employment law compliance and good people management through this period”.

The services on offer will be provided through Roots HR’s market-leading employment law and people management advice service, COMPLY. This service provides tailored advice specifically designed to offer practical support around employing people in the sector – from the most junior to the most senior. COMPLY, which is the only specialist service of its kind in the UK, was designed to serve the sector rather than to maximise profit. It includes features such as a roll-forward of unused hours each month so that subscription time is maximised. “We will work with the organisations that win these free subscriptions to make sure they get the greatest possible benefit from them.” says Golding.

Social enterprises deriving at least 25% of their overall income from trading can visit for a simple one-page application form and more information about the offer, entry criteria and the COMPLY service. Applications must be submitted by 12 noon on 3rd December ’10 and the free subscriptions will start from 1st January ’11.

The Wales Co-operative Centre offers free support and advice to your new or existing social enterprise.
