One stop shop for HR services
By integrating HR Consultancy Services into our “Individual Tax” department (international employment, salary optimisation, bonus plans, payroll coordination, etc.) we want to be a one stop shop for HR services for our clients.
The ‘war for talent’, along with employer branding, the retention of good staff and prevention of burnout and sickness is currently a primary concern for many SMEs. As are the constantly changing HR laws and regulations. However, we note that many companies barely have time to thouroughly focus on these topics. Therefore we offer guidance to examine their HR policy, save costs and make adjustments where necessary.
With our ‘HR Quick Scan’, we immediately detect whether there are any (potential) problems, what can be improved or what should be prioritised. In this respect, we analyse a small number of the company’s documents to detect potential risks. Based on this, we can perform a more extensive social audit if desired.
Each company has its own specific HR challenges depending on its size
For a sole trader as well as for a company, hiring the first employee is always an important step. We guide you through the process with recruitment tips, current market salaries and terms of employment, information about employer discounts, government requirements, insurance, Induction policy, etc.
Many small companies are in need of a social audit and advice on salary optimisation.
For medium-sized and large companies, performance management is also very important, as is the question of how to reintegrate employees into the workplace following a long period of sickness or burnout.
Since Baker Tilly is part of the Baker Tilly International network, for every type of client, it can combine the quality and strength of an international player with the personalised approach and cost of a local player. In practice, this means that the HR Consultancy Services team can rely on the expertise of a local Baker Tilly office for employees of a Belgian subsidiary abroad. On the other hand, Baker Tilly can also provide guidance on HR support for employees operating in Belgium on behalf of a foreign company.
