Businesses with over 250 employees only represent 0.1% of UK business. However, they employ 40% of the workforce and are responsible for 48% of turnover.
It's quite incredible to think that such a small sector has the impact on the economy that it does, but the enterprise sector does just that and many smaller businesses look up to them for inspiration.
Running a large business is completely different from running an SME. Apart from the vast amount of regulatory and reporting requirements it's the scale and size of the organisation that demands a different structure and a different approach. Being the CEO of an enterprise means that you will no longer know everyone's name and what they do and however much you want to go and solve a problem in the business, it is not your job. Your job is to run the organisation, to build a structure that works and to develop teams and departments that you trust to deliver against yours and their objectives.
It would be fair to say that the majority of Cream HR clients are not large enterprises. After all they have big departments to do what we do, so they don't need us, right?
In some cases that may be true, but we successfully work with many large enterprises, providing expert support in areas where they are either lacking themselves, require extra capacity or they want another opinion and a different perspective.
However big your enterprise HR team is, like everyone else, it's impossible to be an expert in everything and an enlightened HR Director will understand and accept this.
That's where Cream HR comes in. Whether it's advice and support to solve complex employee relations challenges or disputes, the application of the law of crappy people or delivering inspirational training and development programmes, enterprise clients use us for immediate, pragmatic and expert support.
We provide extra bandwidth, capacity and expertise when they need it.
Cream HR can make a positive difference to every enterprise.
