We think Differently & offer Value Added HR Support.

But aren’t all Outsourced HR Services all the Same? How are we at Craven HR Services any different?

Yes we offer all the usual ‘HR & People Management’ Services, but what Value Added HR do we offer?

Ok I will try & explain ‘in a nutshell’. The following are the elements of HR & People Management, which we believe makes us extra special & positively sets us apart from others similar providers;

  • Growth & Support – We do genuinely love working with small businesses, start up’s & entrepreneurs, to help support you to grow, or maintain your business & people & to support you to be an ‘Employer of Choice’ – we celebrate with you the ‘big and the small wins’ in Partnership

  • HR Presence – You tell us what you want, we can be a transparent HR ‘presence’ or we can work ‘behind the scenes

  • HR Presence – You tell us what you want, we can be a transparent HR ‘presence’ or we can work ‘behind the scenes’
  • Positive Leadership – Let’s be honest here, how many poor/unfair ‘boss’s’ have you worked for or do you know? We can help coach you to be a real Leader, we can help enhance your ‘soft skills’ & ‘confidence’ which are crucial in positive leadership, ultimately leadership is ‘vision, ”building your people’, ‘inspire & influence others’ & truly ‘connecting with your team’
  • Business Plans & Strategy – We are a small business, why do we need business plans & strategy? Treat your small business as a huge corporate one, in terms of the foundations, rid yourselves of the ‘small business’ mindset (reactive) & focus on a more ‘proactive’ mindset that will enable natural business growth. Strategy is at the core & heart of every successful business, we can also help you implement your Company ‘Mission’, ‘Vision’, & Values
  • Culture – We thrive on helping you to build a positive & healthy culture; by implementing and slotting together, the various components like a jigsaw
  • Coaching – We all have that one Positive Leader who we remember more than anyone else, there will be different reasons why we credit this person, they may have helped you breakthrough or gave you that amazing opportunity, ultimately they ‘believed in you’ our point is, we can help you be that Leader, we can also love coaching those employees with ‘high potential’ & seeing them soar
  • Continuous Improvement – Is a permanent state of change, & we love it, striving to get better & better, always changing, always innovating, never boring or dull
  • Avoid Formal Processes – We like to avoid long formal process driven processes (where possible) & instead positively coach you & your managers to have the conversations that need to be held, to help your people to increase self awareness and responsibility for enhanced performance & productivity
  • Branding & Marketing & Communications – We understand your time restraints & pressures, but we love helping businesses with their branding & marketing, we are also told we are pretty good at it, we also love being the positive communicator for the business

Local Business Week ​10th – 16th of May

As local businesses are the backbone of the UK economy, Local Business Week was set up to celebrate and advise local enterprises to maximise their potential.

 

6 Reasons to Shop Local

 

1. The local economy: Local business is the backbone of the UK economy, and shopping locally can hugely boost your community. Research shows that just £10 spent with a local independent shop means £50 back into the local economy.

2. Create local jobs: With an increase of demand, there always becomes an increase in supply, and with an increase in supply comes an increase in  suppliers. Buying local can boost the job market in your area by producing a need for more workers.

3. The environment: Even though next-day delivery makes online shopping desirable, the cost of that delivery on the environment last long past the next-day. Between the packaging, the fuel to transport the goods, and the damaging habits of online retailers, buying local is clearly the far more environmentally friendly option.

4. Encouraging entrepreneurs: By shopping local, not only are you boosting the community’s economy, you’re also supporting entrepreneurs from the local area and helping their business to grow.

5. Help to create the identity: The businesses in the local high street can shape the identity of an area, attracting tourists and visitors. By supporting local businesses, you can be a part of nurturing the vibrant and exciting identity of your community.

6. Local business for local charities: Many local businesses support local charities that are particularly relevant to the area, meaning that by shopping locally, there’s a good chance that you’re increasing charitable donations.
