Grant Funded Support
Grant Funded HR Support and Advice to help your organisation
Its been a very difficult period in the voluntary sector as they have navigated the covid pandemic and for many organisations, that navigation has been with little professional support to assist with the many HR matters that cropped up. Furlough and working from home are just two situations which spring immediately to mind.
But it’s time to move forward and for organisations to get back on their feet. This has brought new challenges and changes which mean there may be a need to operate differently or adapt policies and procedures post pandemic. Employment law changes crept in with little attention in 2020 and these brought about some fundamental changes that organisations need to be aware of…and compliant with!
VSI Alliance & Voluntary Action Calderdale have secured funding to be able to provide HR support, advice and training to organisations across Calderdale. Whether your contracts of employment, volunteer agreements or HR policies need reviewing (or possibly even writing!), you are wondering how to bring staff back into the office who are working from home or need some training on being a line manager, we are here to help you with any HR needs.

What our clients say
Optimal People and Business are experts in all things HR. We worked successfully with them to produce a series of information videos to help businesses during the Corona lockdown. We are looking forward to working with them again in the near future as we grow our business.
We personally dealt with Vici at Optimal and she was a delight. She was open and honest and gave great advice and guidance. She helped us deal with what could have been a very difficult dismissal with a problematic member of staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Vici to any business for their HR.
Can’t thank Mel and the team enough. Really helped my business in a crisis. Looking forward to working with you and the team.
Brilliant service, friendly staff, lovely team
Amazing service and support from extremely knowledgeable people, who also take great care in the standard of their work. Can't fault them, thank you so much!
5* all round, Mel was extremely helpful and answered all my questions, very friendly and professional. Recommended to others and would definitely use again. Thank you again Mel and Helen.
Mel and her team are fantastic, help me all along the way with some complex issues. Couldn't recommend more.
I've used Optimal PBS on a couple of occasions now to assist with due diligence on an acquisition i've been working on and also to provide contract and handbook production. Cannot fault the support or advice provided.
We love this company and Mel is a god send to our business, she sorted everything for us from employee contracts to helping us source the right accountant, she is at the end of the phone whenever I have any HR questions (even when on holiday) can not fault her commitment. Keep up the good work!
