Paying People


The Impact HR Services

We can help with your HR needs


Adding a member to your team is an important step. Whether it's your first hire or an addition to an already large team, it's essential to have a clear understanding of the hire, and a recruitment plan in place. We can make the entire process easier for you; avoiding issues from hiring the wrong member or implications that may undermine your business.


Ensuring you pay people correctly is so important. Many employers are surprised by the real “total cost of employment” and the confusing array of information required to ensure their team are paid correctly. We help to take the complexity out of paying people correctly; guiding you through an easy and no-cost, or low-cost, way to navigate payroll.


For many SME owners and managers, the requirements of running a business and meeting client expectations can place high demands on you and your team. We help you manage star performers and/or underperformance to ensure your team are productive and engaged in your business, while ensuring fair treatment and legal compliance are covered.


Protecting your team, yourself and your business might be the most important part of your job. It’s about ensuring the workplace is safe and hazard-free. This might be really practical through the provision of Personal Protective Equipment, or more holistic like providing a wellness program and access to an Employee Assistance Program. We can help tailor a solution that fits the needs of your business.
Developing People


As a business owner, you try to employ people with the closest match in skills to your business requirements but it’s not always possible to hire a perfect fit of experience and skills. Or sometimes the skills of your team need to adjust to changes in your business. With our structured approach, we help you plan for these changes and match team development needs to your business needs through training and coaching.
Communicating with People


Your team needs to know and understand what you expect of them and why it is so important. Clear, effective communication is critical to ensure business flows smoothly. We can help craft your words so that your real intention is clear. Our Do-It-Yourself model offers a package of well-researched and industry-tested documents and templates to assist your communications requirements.

Discover a new HR pathway to better productivity and more effective, happier people.
