Why should I bother with HR or Admin support?
It has been reliably estimated that 75% of small businesses do not have employment contracts or HR related policies and procedures in place. In the event of a dispute the law will decide for you and this almost always goes against you, the employer.
You are primarily a business owner and may not necessarily have the experience or know how to manage people and the myriad of issues that can arise through the employee lifecycle. Having Your PA Forte assist with your employee issues means you don’t have to worry about saying or doing the wrong thing, giving you invaluable peace of mind!
By allowing Your PA Forte to take on board the admin tasks that you don’t like doing or don’t know how to do, just imagine what it will feel like knowing you have the time back to achieve your business goals or a better work-life balance.
What does ‘virtual assistance’ actually mean?
Today’s technological advances means that remote working doesn’t have to compromise on the ability to provide excellent support services for you and your business. However we understand that there will be times when it will more appropriate to meet in person and work together. Each client relationship is different in terms of its communication and at Your PA Forte we recognise the need to be flexible and adapt where necessary.
What are the financial benefits in having virtual HR or Admin support?
Time is money! For small business owners time is a commodity too precious to waste. It’s well utilised time that enables business growth, client relationships to be forged and missions to be accomplished.
What would an hour of your time be in terms of net worth? Having a virtual assistant means you can have the necessary administrative support as and when you need it, for a cost-effective price!
As an employer, you will at some point deal with difficult situations such as dismissal or disciplinary action. Without having the experience or the financial ability to employ a qualified HR adviser, you may choose to attempt to tackle these issues which can prove very costly if things go wrong.
Using Your PA Forte on a pay-as-you-go or retainer basis means you have the flexibility as to when HR support is needed and the comfort in knowing that you are minimising risk to your business in terms of any potential discrimination or unfair dismissal claims. Discrimination compensation is uncapped and you can end up paying £000’s for financial loss and injury to feelings if a claim is upheld at an Employment Tribunal.
How much do you charge?
Your PA Forte can offer pay-as-you-go or retainer package rates depending on the type of support, volume and frequency of work. For new clients we are able to offer a 20% discount no obligation one-month trial period.
What guarantees do I have that you will not divulge information to others? Is there a confidentiality agreement in place?
Your PA Forte is registered with the Information Commissioners Office and we are duty bound to adhere to the regulations set out in the Data Protection Act 1998.
For assurance and peace of mind we are happy to provide clients with a confidentiality agreement.
