Timico have worked with Camino HR on a number of projects over the past year. Jane is a very commercially minded HR specialist, which helped with being able to provide us pragmatic advice.

I have also attended one of Jane's Workshops on Understanding and Managing Stress & Mental Health in the Workplace, which I would highly recommend.

I would have no issues with recommending Camino for ongoing HR advice or project work.

Thank you Eddie. I'm so glad I was able to get out to meet you and see the Social Club before the virus outbreak hit, it's made it a lot easier to chat to you via email and to advise. Look forward to continuing to help when the club re-opens.

We have used Camino HR since 2017 and have found the service that they provide to be hugely valuable. One of the initial tasks we utilised them for was to help with some company restructuring of roles and responsibilities which Jane completed in collaboration with us to great effect.

In our time with them they have always providing efficient and effective support which has made them effortless to deal with. The continued support they offer and the service level agreements we receive are excellent for our business.

We would happily recommend Camino HR and Jane to anyone considering using an external HR supplier.

I worked with Jane and Camino at my previous company and always found that the advice and help they gave to be exactly as required to help move the business forward. I didn't hesitate in contacting Jane when i took over the running of a UK subsidiary business to a company in the States, to help move this business forward. More...

In business today you can't afford to guess or assume things are right. Camino have taken all the risk element out of our business and provided a sound footing that we have built on over the last two years.
They are on the ball at all times and genuinely care about the business and people within it.
Top marks for a top organisation.

I have worked with Camino now for 5 years. Initially it was to design our contracts and policies. But now it is for on-going HR issues and even training. HR can be a minefield especially when you don’t have much experience in it. But now it is not something I worry about. I know Camino will always be on email or at the end of the phone when I need them. Which when you have a HR issue you normally need an answer there and then.

I have dealt with Jane, Sophie and Rose at Camino who have each helped me in one way or another. I would be more than happy to recommend, in fact I would go out my way to do so.

I have worked closely with Jane, Sophie and the team at Camino for 7 years during a period our business turnover has doubled. Their contribution to that achievement cannot be understated. The Camino team have shown they are able to deal with all levels of HR support from being hands on with notetaking and letter drafting to reviewing company strategies and procedures. For me this has meant more of my time has been able to be spent focusing on our production KPI's. Their support and advice has always been exceptional and by using their services we have been able to grow our manufacturing workforce without the need for additonal overhead staff creating a more profitable business. I would highly recommend Camino HR should you feel you may benefit from HR support and would be happy to be contacted should anyone require further detail.Martin WhiteleyProduction ManagerLincat LtdWhisby RoadLincolnLN4 1TY More...

Q&As

The people who work in a business are the most important resource, so the greatest satisfaction comes from helping businesses to get the best from their employees and develop a motivated, effective workforce.

Managing people is never without problems and sometimes relationships break down or people are not right for the job they are in. So it's also satisfying to support managers to resolve problems in the best, fairest and most sensible way.

I've been running my own business providing HR consultancy for over 25 years. It started as a means to work flexibly, doing work that I love whilst I brought up my children. Then, 10 years ago, we rebranded as Camino HR Ltd to make it a full-time business providing HR support to smaller businesses and HR project support to larger organisations.

Our service is friendly, personal and completely professional. We have a huge range of knowledge and experience and a number of great associates that we can call on to make sure that our clients get the best service, no matter what aspect of HR they need support with, including health and safety, occupational health support.

We've worked with businesses of all types and sizes and we always have satisfied clients - the best way to see this is by going on to our website and looking at our reviews.

Services

Our smaller clients have access to the HR software for smaller businesses provided by Breathe.

Larger organisations looking to implement HR or TA software can use us for:

Analysing business need to produce the specification,
sourcing of suitable software for evaluation,
set up, user acceptance testing, implementation and training, production of support documentation

Documents completely tailored to your business needs, but we guide you on best practice, based on years of experience of working with different business types.

The law requires you to issue terms and conditions within two months of an employee starting work. That may soon change to a requirement to provide them on the first day of starting work.

We'll work with you to develop a set of template terms and conditions to suit your business and guide you on the difference between permanent and fixed term contracts, zero hours and flexible contracts, working with sub-contractors or people who are self-employed.

Most importantly, we'll help you to understand what you should make contractual and what is non-contractual and why that makes a difference.

The unexpected happens, your employee makes a request for shared parental leave, or flexible working, or taking time off to care for a dependent..

Ideally you'll already have policies and procedures that explain what their rights are and how the business will deal with such requests, but it's always good to run through the subject with someone to be sure that you are doing things properly.

Use as when you need guidance or support to handle difficult situations such as disciplinary situations, employee grievances, claims of bullying or harassment or other unwanted conduct.

We'll help you resolve such problems in the best possible way, making sure that all the employees involved are treated fairly and in line with employment legislation and that the supervisors and line managers are supported in the way they have to manage the situation.

We can also provide tailored workshops for your supervisory and line management staff in how to manage potentially difficult situations.

Sometimes workplace disputes or difficulties between two individuals are best resolved through mediation.

Mediation takes the problem out of the formal company disciplinary or grievance procedures and tries to assist all the parties involved in coming to an agreement or in finding a better way of working together.

It can be quite surprising to find that people who have been so wrapped in conflict can, with the support of the mediator, begin to talk to each other, understand each other’s point of view and find their own way to resolve the problem.

Talk to us if you'd like advice on the best way to deal with an employee who is seems to be frequently off, whether through sickness or for other reasons. It's better to deal with an attendance problem sooner rather than later.

We can help you put together an absence management policy and procedures and provide training for your supervisory and line management staff in how to use them. Our associate Occupational Health advisors are available for advice and guidance when necessary, particularly in cases of disability or long term sickness absence.

Organisations grow and change, as do the people working in them. Some organisations need a rigid structure, others work better by offering flexibility and by adapting the job roles to suit what the individuals can offer. We can help you to evaluate what you really need and to structure your jobs accordingly. With your workload well structured, we can help you to put in processes for reviewing performance and making changes from time to time, and mechanisms for managing poor performance if necessary. Through our associates we can offer you team profiling and coaching.

Larger organisations and growing businesses often need to take stock of their pay and benefit structures and make sure that they are fair and fit for purpose. We can help you to evaluate jobs and set up appropriate pay and benefit structures.

You contract with us for a specified number of hours of support over 12 months, the minumum number of hours is 8 hours , but larger clients will contract for 40, 80 or more in order to benefit from a reduced hourly rate. So you are never throwing your money away on a service you don't use, you will get the hours of support that you pay for.

We agree how you want to use the support. For some clients we visit them regularly and the employees know who we are and that we are the company's HR. For others we just work on an as needed basis, when they have a query or problem. We will encourage you to set your employees up on our Breathe HR software, so that we can safely share information about employees and so that employees can see their own documents and make holiday requests etc.

For us to be comfortable to provide a support contract, we do need to be sure that you have the appropriate policies and procedures in place, so we'll always start with a free HR health check and advise you what needs to be changed or implemented to make you compliant with employment legislation and good HR practice. Then you can either get that work done yourselves before we start the contract, or we can give you a quote for doing it ourselves. If you use policies and procedures that we provide, we'll also undertake to keep them updated in line with changes to employment legislation at no extra cost, so long as you remain in contract with us.
