Law firm launches six-sided approach to HR

A West Midlands law firm has launched Hexagon HR - a bespoke HR and employment law service for businesses.

Tim Jones, head of Employment at Higgs & Sons, said: “Employment law is often complex and ever changing, and the consequences of making mistakes can be time-consuming and costly.

“We recognised that not all businesses have a dedicated HR resource.”

In a recent survey, the Higgs Employment team found that of those businesses surveyed, just 27% had a dedicated HR team, while 44% said the owner-manager of the business was responsible for HR despite not having specialist knowledge of HR matters. And even those businesses that do have a dedicated HR resource can often find it becomes stretched, given that the role and remit of HR is expanding all the time.

Tim added: “We wanted to give business owners the peace of mind that their employment and HR issues are being handled in a way that is compliant with current legislation, protects their reputation and helps to maintain a stable workforce.”

Although Higgs has offered an HR service for more than a decade, the service has relaunched as Hexagon HR to offer range of service levels.

Hexagon was chosen as the name to reflect six key features:

  • A dedicated client team, providing continuity of service
  • Expert employment lawyers – your business will only be advised by legally qualified individuals
  • Unlimited access – you can contact us as much as you need to without additional costs
  • HR suite of documents – we can provide template HR documents and guidance notes
  • Costs certainty - a fixed annual cost, which can be paid on a monthly basis
  • Freedom to choose – unlike other providers that tie you in for 3-5 years, you sign up for an annual retainer only

At its most basic level, the Hexagon HR service includes an unlimited telephone helpline, monthly newsletters (with legal updates), invitations to seminars and webinars and discounted hourly rates for other types of employment law support. Additional services can include the provision of template HR documents, written advice and document drafting, depending upon the service level that is most appropriate to the organisation.
