Overcoming HR hurdles and making a difference for new and growing businesses

20th Dec 2019
Business, Human Resources, MAD-HR News

When you start up or grow your business, you must oversee everything. But the need to keep so many plates spinning at once can be overwhelming, particularly as you need to learn from your mistakes fast.

As your business grows, recruiting new team members is the obvious next step, although it’s a transition that means you must now become an HR manager on top of everything else.  This where the costs of getting it wrong or ignoring what you need to do can start to ramp up.

However, rather than spending precious time researching what you need to do – learning about recruitment processes, interview questions, policy documents and more, you can seek support from HR experts.

It saves you time and money, takes away stress – and reduces the risk of running into employment legal issues.

Here at MAD-HR, we recognise that owners of small and growing businesses want instant access to help whenever they need it and in order to make a difference, we developed our Online HR Toolkit.

The Online HR Toolkit is a user-friendly portal packed with guides, learning, templates and documents. It lets business owners self-manage almost any HR situation fast – providing them with the confidence to deal with things themselves protecting the budget.

With more than 100’s of legally commercially and legally up-to-date, downloadable documents, the toolkit is an evolving and indispensable source of HR help. Here are just some of the areas you’ll soon master.


Without professional back-up, the hiring process can take way too much of your time. Get it wrong, and you’ll not only have to do it all over again – you’ll likely pay a high price and risk damaging your brand. With the Online HR Toolkit, you’ll receive:

  • Recruitment advert templates
  • Job spec outlines, which are key to attracting the right candidates
  • Interview questions designed for you to get more out of your time with a candidate

Staff management

Once you’ve found your ideal candidates, use your portal to take away much of the HR burden that comes with m

managing a team.

You would normally have to spend days, perhaps weeks, pulling these together yourself, especially the first time it needs doing:

  • Contracts of employment
  • An employer’s handbook
  • Policies, including holidays, maternity leave etc.
  • Performance management resources

With the help of the Online HR Toolkit, you can concentrate on building up your business and spend less time bogged down in administration.

Optional legal support

As a small business owner, you’ll know that when you employ staff, there are potential legal pitfalls around every corner. MAD-HR’s Online HR Toolkit provides optional 24/7 legal support.

Access our 24-hour legal helpline to receive instant advice from a lawyer relating to employment, commercial, corporate, health and safety or taxation issues. We have more than 60 lawyers and barristers on board.

It’s a cost-effective way to manage legal issues or questions as they arise. And it’s reassuring to know help is just one phone call away. Best of all, you get unlimited calls, with no time limit. It’s like having an in-house solicitor to use whenever you wish.

We intend to make this an on-going relationship to help us develop as a more

Carole immediately grasped my situation and quickly set about creating the perfect document to help drive my business forward. She has a wealth of experience that she was able to apply to my current and future business goals in order to come up with the goods! The process itself was extremely straightforward with a clear system for booking in a call with Carole, where she then talked me through my options. Thoroughly more

I recently attended a Suffolk Brokerage Registered managers meeting and the very lovely Charlotte from MAR HR was there to give a presentation. Charlotte was fantastic and delivered a great presentation. Her knowledge around all things HR where clearly evident and she answered some tricky questions really well, giving clear, helpful advice. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of gaining support for their business to speak to Charlotte. I know we at ClarkeCare will be engaging their services in the near future. Thank you Charlotte :-)read more

I love working with Carole and the team at MAD-HR. They are so knowledgeable and responsive. I feel really confident that my HR (and therefore my business) is in safe hands. We've had a few issues that we've needed help with and Carole has been right there, with great advice and useful resources (via the Online HR Toolkit) that have made my life so much easier and my blood-pressure so much lower. Thanks Carole and team. You rock!read more
