How to Employ Your First 20 People by Debbie Glinnan

How to Employ Your First 20 People by Debbie Glinnan

In 2015, I published “How to Employ Your First 20 People”. The book is written in plain English and is designed to guide new managers and small business owners through everyday HR issues. It is full of practical tips and checklists to guide you.

I believe in treating people with respect, no matter what the situation.  Experience tells me that many difficult HR situations can be avoided or recovered by treating people properly.  Fewer HR issues for you means having more time to do what you do best; run your business.


Why use Parallel HR?

We specialise in working with smaller businesses. Our clients typically employ 1-70 people.

As a small business owner myself, I recognise the need to deal with a wide range of business issues, such as accounts, marketing and HR.  You can’t expect to be an expert in all of them but no doubt would benefit from an expert’s advice.  That’s where we come in.

As HR consultants, we will set up your employment contracts, policies and procedures.  We will help you deal with managing performance, absence or redundancies and situations such as maternity leave, a disciplinary or grievance.  We will write the tricky correspondence for you and guide you every step of the way.

With Parallel HR, you get the guidance you need at a price you can afford.  We are happy to work either on an adhoc or retainer basis.

We’ll  listen carefully to your concerns and clearly set out your options, highlighting the merits and potential pitfalls so you can make an informed decision.  The more we work together, the more we’ll understand what matters to you, just as an HR specialist would in a larger Company.

We publish a free monthly newsletter setting out important legal changes and practical HR tips for your business. To receive your free copy, please click on the box below.
