Why Choose Us?

Running a successful business in a challenging economic climate is difficult, not only paying attention to the needs of your customers but ensuring you have a competent and motivated workforce. By not being adequately prepared to address business risks or having insufficient expertise in the field of human resources within your organisation can cost dearly. Take the following examples based on recent incidents:

  • NHS doctor awarded £4.5 million for bullying, sex and race discrimination.
  • NHS senior manager awarded £1.2 million for Whistle-blowing.
  • Private Sector worker winning large redundancy payout following rejection of what was considered ‘suitable alternative employment’ by her employers.
  • Charity receptionist awarded £16,700 for unfair dismissal.

It’s clear that reacting or behaving inappropriately to workforce risks or problems can cost both time and money. Being prepared and competent to deal with workforce issues like poor performance or persistent sickness before they happen is vital and Merlin can support you with this. Our consultants have a wealth of human resources and organisational development experience and believe in face-to-face interventions to resolve your workforce issues.
