Some Frequently Asked Questions
Sounds great but I don't have the time!
A favourite quote of ours "definition of insanity, doing same thing over and over and expecting a different result".
We will help you improve your skills or use your team more so you get back more time for yourself.
That's not going to happen overnight though. In the meantime, try these:
1. We send a weekly email with links to new content on the site. Only click through on something that catches your eye.
2. Pop into the members area only when you have a question for us.
3. Use two of the licences for either a fellow director, your spouse, an office manager or admin. They'd get massive value from the resources too.
I have a very small team, will the Toolbox be right for me?
Yes, whether you have one person on your team or many more, the content and support will suit you.
Can my Office Manager join instead of me?
Yes, we work extremely well with people who support business owners in this way. Your subscription comes with 3 user licences.
We have business insurance that covers us for tribunal costs, do you?
No we don't. Our service is one that aims to support you in the everyday life of being an employer as well as developing your skills along the way.
Some of our clients have subscriptions with other organisations which offer this type of insurance cover and have commented that they get a different view of "next step" actions as our focus is on making your life easier rather than being concerned that you may potentially claim on our insurance policy.
Whilst the risks of tribunal costs are real, we help you put those risks into perspective.
There are circa 32 million people in work in the UK. Recent figures show 92,000 early conciliation applications (stage before tribunal) were issued in 2016. 19% progress through to tribunal hearing stage (circa 17,480).
We believe the risk of having a claim heard by a tribunal is a lot less than the marketing departments of some organisations would have you believe. Our rather crude calculations show a 0.05% chance. (17,480 / 32,000,000 x 100 = 0.05%)
Should you already have this insurance in place, there is no reason why getting alternative opinion from ourselves on a situation you have would compromise you.
I have had staff for years, how can you help me?
If you are entirely satisfied with your life at work, your results, the impact your work has at home etc. then you may not need our help. There is always the benefit of hearing a new perspective on these matters though, that might be worth paying for.
Our £1 offer for a 14 day trial is an excellent low cost way to have a look around and see how we could help.
I want to join but don't want everyone in the community to know my business!
We calculate that on average 80% of our subscribers do not post questions, but remain as subscribers as they learn from other discussions and the resources available.
If you do have questions and are not keen on being open within the forum area, there is a private coaching section. Post your questions within that area and only you and our team will see what has been written.
