We began working with Streetwise HR in June 2017 as we felt the business would benefit from having a HR team on board with the business growing. Streetwise HR are able to pop in and see us, or deal with any issues we may have over the phone/via email. They are straightforward and relaxed which we find easy to work with. Streetwise HR also love chicken, which helps.
Steve Crawford, Founder
Chicken & Blues initially enlisted the services of Streetwise HR back in 2015 but after a year, decided they weren’t ready for their full support and agreed to take HR activities in house. However, just a year later they approached Streetwise HR once again and asked them to come back on board to help take the business in a whole new direction.
As part of Chicken & Blues' HR services, the Streetwise team produced employee contracts and a handbook to ensure all staff were on the same page and working with the same values and goals. As well as its composition, this also includes continually updating and managing the contracts and handbook to ensure the content and messaging remains relevant and accurate to the overall direction of the business.
The Streetwise team is always working closely with the managers and business consultant at Chicken & Blues to streamline their processes and become a more efficient and productive company. This has involved helping them switch to the cloud-based G-Drive for better collaboration and communication between all their teams.
As part of the bespoke HR services, the team works with, supports and advises managers in a range of HR related issues that crop up from week to week. This can include helping new starters settle in, advice on how to deal with sensitive situations and even ideas for boosting workplace morale. Indeed, Streetwise HR is proud to say that Chicken & Blues consider them to be a part of the team and know that no matter what employee relation situation may arise, the team is there to help.
