What to expect from Park City

Writing People Policies and Procedures can be costly, time-consuming and stressful, especially when HR isn’t your area of expertise. At Park City Consulting, all company handbooks are written bespoke for each client and can be an important part of company communication – this project will support the development of your company culture including the leadership style, people values and behaviours and tone you set for your organisation.

The Human Resource team at Park City Consulting will partner with your organisation to make sure human resource policy and procedure throughout the organisation fit the needs, goals, and aims of the organisation and its leadership. From Employee engagement to company culture, we will design all your people policies in one place – your ‘people handbook’. Businesses succeed because their people succeed and often the people handbook is at the heart of this success.

Under the law, all businesses must produce a written statement of terms and conditions for their employees. For many, the thought of writing a contract of employment for a new employee can seem daunting, this is where we can help you. The HR Business Partners at Park City can ensure that this burden is removed from your shoulder.

Our employment law experts will take care of everything. From reviewing your existing contracts of employment to the drawing up of new documents for all members of staff.
