Tradstocks employ 44 staff working in construction, admin and office support roles. When the company contacted STEP regarding HR services one of their main challenge was staff sickness, they needed to find a way to reduce and control the absence levels they were experiencing.
STEP HR brought in processes and systems to tackle absences which have seen absence rates reduce significantly and quickly which has led to making significant financial savings. It has also had a positive impact on the culture in the organisation.
STEP HR developed an effective sickness absence management programme, which addressed absences directly whilst supporting employees and business needs. Responsibility was allocated and process were introduced to assist with reporting.
Due to procedures being put in place absences are dealt with consistently and timely which in turn reduce the chances of them becoming more serious or for longer periods of time.
For Tradstocks it was important that their HR service was bespoke and covered all core HR matters. Using STEP HR means that they get a complete bespoke service. The STEP team get to know a lot about the business, meaning STEP is now on hand as an outsourced HR department.
