HR advice on furlough and cost saving measures

What is furlough and how can you access the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme?

With the spread of Coronavirus causing havoc across the world, now more than ever businesses need to ensure they are watching costs and cutting back wherever possible. Our experienced team of HR consultants can offer you flexible, hands-on support across a full range of HR services, including advice on cost reduction measures.

The government has launched several measures which may help your business, including the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (furlough).

The government’s Coronavirus Job Protection Scheme covers as much as 80% of wages for staff you put on furlough leave. But still unsure how furlough works? Got questions that you need answering? And do you need them fast?

People Business is here to help….

    What our clients say:

    People Business provided us with an ongoing HR consultancy service, which we use on a needs basis; this, and their flexibility, was very useful in managing our budgets. As a small to medium size business such as ours, I would have no hesitation in recommending People Business for all matters regarding HR


    People Business had been HR advisers to the Foundation for a number of years so I made contact with Natalie to seek advice on a number of HR matters. Over the course of the summer Natalie was an invaluable source of HR advice
