Interim & Project Management:

Appointing an Interim HR practitioner – Director or Manager is a progressive way to help organisations manage change. From mergers and acquisitions, to disposals and downsizing, renegotiation of contracts or reappraisal of employee benefits, an interim HR practitioner can bring experience, objectivity and a determination to get the job done.

Training Workshops:

Small and medium size organisations cannot afford to employ their own in-house training function and yet learning and development is just as important in these companies as it is in larger organisations. The Yorkshire HR Company provide a selection of bite-size, HR-related training workshops designed to provide practical tools and guidance in managing typical, day-to-day HR issues.

Psychometric Assessment:

Psychometric assessment provides important information about an individual's ability to perform a job, their behavioural style and cultural fit - and have been found consistently to be the best predictor of an employee's potential for a role.
