Introductions to small business owners with no current HR support

Business Description

Founded by Caroline Chapman in 2020, Grounded Human Resources Limited is a friendly and approachable HR Consultancy, based in York, designed to support and empower business owners to create great people relationships. We believe that Human Resources (HR) should be straightforward and down to earth, we also believe that people should be treated with respect and compassion.

We know that when you are running a small business you can get close to your employees, which can make it difficult to challenge things you aren’t happy about and make difficult decisions.  That’s why we support you by using compassionate HR.  We believe that people should be treated with respect and compassion.  We know that this gets the best out of people and we know that it can help you sleep at night when you have had to make a tough decision regarding your team.

We also know that HR can seem overly complicated and sometimes a bit frightening to small business owners. We believe you can get the best out of your people and be legally compliant, without the need for complicated systems and lots of policies.

We also want to change the stereotype of HR people; we aren’t all power hungry, grim reaper types only showing up to meetings when someone is going to be ‘sacked’. HR professionals can be warm, creative and compassionate, whilst still supporting business owners with tough decisions.

We like to work with you to understand the needs and demands of your business, so we can support you in the best way possible.

We can help you with:

  • Contracts of Employment

  • Employee Handbooks

  • Recruitment

  • People issues; disciplinaries, poor performance, grievances, sickness, redundancy

  • Independent Investigations

  • Job Descriptions and Job Evaluation

All the advice and documentation we provide is in line with Employment Law and the CIPD’s (Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development) current best practice.
