That’s just one of the services offered with a HR support package from one of the Midlands’ leading law firms.

ConeX partner firm FBC Manby Bowdler is an award-winning legal practice with a strong connection to the manufacturing industry with years of experience working with businesses within the sector.

The firm has recently launched its new full HR service for manufacturing businesses, covering recruitment and retainment, employee health and wellbeing, guidance on managing absence, discipline and challenging situations, and much more.

Head of the employment law and HR team, partner Julia Fitzsimmons, said: “We work with businesses day in, day out, and our team has the experience and expertise to spot any potential weaknesses in your processes which could cause you an expensive problem in the future.

“But we’re not just here for troubleshooting. Getting the basics right, such as creating a supportive environment for staff and putting in place an appropriate perks and incentive scheme, can pay huge dividends in terms of morale, productivity and retainment.

“We know it’s just not practical or affordable for some companies – especially small manufacturing businesses – to have a full in-house HR team that can cover every eventuality.

“That’s where our HR Support packages come in. You get the benefit of a specialist HR team when you need it, but you only pay for what you need.”

Before any package is put in place, the FBC Manby Bowdler team will conduct a full free audit of your policies, procedures and handbooks to see where you are and what you need to do to protect your business from issues.

Julia added: “Employment law can be a minefield – and it’s always changing. We want to take that burden off the shoulders of managers so they can get on with the important task of producing goods to sell.

“We work with our partners to make sure everything, including HR strategy and expertise, employment law assistance, health and safety audits and courses, healthcare cash plans and consultancy for business growth is covered.

“Sometimes all you might need is reassurance that you’re doing the right thing – at other times, you might need legal representation at an employment tribunal. With our HR support, whatever you need, we can assist.”
