Employee Relationship Management
Our HR experts support every aspect of your business’s interpersonal relationships in the working environment, from the very text of a job advertisement to the interview process, through appraisals, performance reviews, disciplinary action, redundancy, retirement and dismissals and everything in between. Employee Relationship Management (ERM) is concerned with every aspect of the employee – employer relationship, ranging from the actual wording of a job advertisement to terms and conditions of employment, to retirement and everything in between.
Our consultants work closely with our clients to ensure that the most effective and harmonized relationships are being fostered. We ensure that all of the clients’ documentation from employment contracts to staff handbooks are in compliance with the law, but we also endeavour to produce documentation which accurately reflects the clients’ company ethos and culture. Once policies and procedures have been created and depending on the service level required we can assist the client in introducing and implementing these systems or release them into the hands of the manager responsible for this department within the client company.
Health & Safety
Following the introduction of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 employers are now more aware than ever of the importance of having formalised policies and procedures in place, governing safety in the workplace. Our consultants carry out detailed safety audits and risk assessments, provide the client with a report of the findings of their inspection, supported with photographic evidence and subsequently produce a Safety Statement and supporting Safety Management Systems for the client. Safety handbooks are also provided for all members of staff and, depending on the level of service required our consultants can introduce and implement the new policies and procedures.
When grievances and disputes escalate over and above the realms of normal ERM guidelines, our employment law experts are dedicated to resolving all issues in a timely and amicable manner. Claims of bullying, harassment, unfair dismissals etc. can cause panic and fear for most employers but with the help of our consultants this need not be an upsetting or traumatic event. Where possible we seek to resolve problems through mediation and arbitration and to avoid the recourse of the labour courts. But where things do become more complicated, esa will engage in all legal correspondence, case preparation and representation in the Workplace Relations Commission, Employment Appeals Tribunal and Labour Courts. Our experts have great deal of experience in the area of industrial relations and negotiations with Trade Unions and have a wealth of invaluable acumen to bring to any disputes. Our excellent reputation in Employment Law circles instils a great deal of confidence in employers for whom these kinds of issues are the most daunting and terrifying imaginable.
Safety, Education & Training
As well as having to provide a safe working environment employers also have a duty to provide education and training on safety in the workplace to all employees. Employees have a right to a safe work place but they also have many responsibilities to work with their colleagues and employers to maintain a safe environment. Maintaining a safe and healthy workplace must be viewed as a shared objective of all members of staff and must be encouraged at all levels. Furthermore, the importance and indeed legal obligation of having trained fire wardens and first aiders on site cannot be stressed highly enough.

Health Assured gives you the tools to get there… Under pressure staff, equal under pressure business A disgruntled employee is not only a risk to their safety and that of others, there is always the risk of litigation. ESA who have served thousands of Employers over the past 21 years is very familiar with the consequences of late or no intervention. Defending employer, who provide the best equipment, best facilities and excellent staff are shocked when seated before the WRC or Labour Court to learn of the animosity that took place in their company. It is not unusual to drill down on these claim to discover the stress and anxiety is often not work related or at least not at eh outset.
Modern life is becoming much more instant and convenient in so many ways. But that doesn’t mean it’s getting any easier. In fact, the opposite seems to be true. Today, people feel under immense pressure both inside and outside of work. And most of the counselling sessions we hold with employees are for those struggling with their mental health—a staggering 36% of total calls we received related to the following.
The Five most common issues break down as follows:
It’s clear: if your employees have a depleted sense of wellbeing, it’s going to affect their work. And that affects your bottom line. The moral of others and can end up in Court. But the best employers work to put that right…
So researching this we need to look at the model which reflects:-
1. The organisation
2. Employee Needs
3. Size of company

When employee have no idea what to do or were to go, they find an escape, someone or thing to blame as the Human Mind is in capable of holding its self the problem, to do so leads to a mental breakdown, so it’s easy to blame something or someone for your situation. The best of employer also struggle, call a Solicitor, their Accountant, look to terminate the contract, berry the head and hope.
