Forbes Launches Expanded HR Complete Employment Solution

An Employment Law & HR solution offered by Lancashire-based Forbes Solicitors has been expanded to include a wide range of new complimentary services in a convenient “one-stop-shop” for clients.

HR Complete is a bespoke insurance-backed service which launched two years ago to help SMEs get the most out of their people, and to protect them against claims should the worst happen.

The unique scheme now offers clients the support of health and safety consultants Vita Safety, occupational health service consultancy Organisational Healthcare, Physiotherapy and wellbeing service Physiofusion and Mattioli Woods, one of the UK’s leading providers of wealth management and employee benefit services.

To mark the launch of the expanded service, Forbes Solicitors are hosting a free HR Complete event in conjunction with its Complementary Partners between 9am and 2pm on October 16, at Ribby Hall Conference Centre, Wrea Green.

The seminar will showcase the additional support now on offer to SME clients and will include two interactive sessions, providing useful resources to take away following the event.

The HR Complete service includes:

  • A dedicated Client Relationship Manager, responsible for ensuring high quality advice and excellent customer service
  • Monthly meetings with one of Forbes’ Employment & HR specialist solicitors and your Management or HR team, to discuss ongoing issues; providing pro-active advice as well as updates on developing legal issues and trends in the marketplace
  • Advising and assisting on all HR and Employment issues; including:
    • Disciplinary issues
    • Family friendly working
    • Equality issues and Equal Pay
    • Investigations
    • Redundancy, reorganisation and business process re-engineering
    • Defence of tribunal cases

The service covers legal costs and damages in the event of a tribunal claim and companies can choose the level of voluntary excess so as to reduce premiums.

Cover is tailor-made to suit the needs of individual businesses.

Emma Swan, a Partner in Forbes’ Employment team, said: “The newly expanded Forbes HR Complete is a unique service making it more convenient for clients as they can go to one place for numerous services.

“All our services are tailored to the individual businesses and having one contact to go through makes it seamless and easier for clients”.

Ian Hutchings, Managing Director of Vita Safety, said: “Vita Safety are extremely pleased to be working with Forbes Solicitors, supporting the HR Complete package.  This not only really complements our offering, but Forbes’ values for quality of service for their clients matches ours perfectly”.

Tony Mawson, Consultant Occupational Physician and Director at Organisational Healthcare, added: “A joined–up approach is key to supporting both the employer and employee in improving health and well-being and this service provides a key opportunity to work together with that aim.”

Sorrel Holland, Managing Director of Physiofusion, said: “The well-being of our employees and customers are of high importance to us, which is why Physiofusion are so proud to work alongside Forbes Solicitors and their HR Complete package. As leaders, it is vital that we make our workplace a better place to work. Working together to achieve the same goals is extremely refreshing”.

Nick Howarth, Employee Benefits Consultant at Mattioli Woods, said: “We are really excited to work with Forbes Solicitors as part of the HR Complete service. Our employee benefits offering perfectly complements HR Complete’s services, and between all the partners I believe we are able to deliver a more holistic and comprehensive solution for our clients.”
