Effective research will help you solve problems and make the right decisions for your business, but it’s time-consuming and distracting. For many of our clients, it’s one of those tasks that never quite make it to the top of their to-do list.
Pass us your brief and we’ll draw on our experience to thoroughly research your issue, presenting the information back to you in a clear report that sets out your best options plus the pros and cons of each.
How we can help you
Here are just some of the topics we’ve researched for our clients:
- Apprentice schemes
- Insurance packages for clients
- Employers’ health and safety responsibilities for homeworkers
- Developing a consumer event programme, including options for facilities
- Business and personal travel options
To give you an idea of the process and scope of our research, here are some of our recent projects:
Example 1: Apprentice schemes
One of our regular clients was keen to know whether setting up an apprentice scheme would be a viable approach for them. We reviewed online information and spoke with relevant local government and business development specialists, then presented back our findings. This allowed our client to determine whether setting up an apprenticeship scheme was the right decision for their business.
Example 2: Webinars
Our client wanted to find out how they could use webinars to help their business. To do this, we investigated what content would be a good fit and identified potential audiences. We then confirmed the technical requirements and recommended functionality, as well as the impact of audience size and pricing.
Example 3: Home working regulations
Our client asked us to find out what they should be aware of if their employees worked from home. They needed to know what their responsibilities would be, and what ongoing arrangements should be put in place. We reviewed the Health and Safety Executive information, and compared processes of other organisations already managing homeworkers. After presenting the information to our client, they asked Hour Hands to complete a Homeworkers’ Checklist so their responsibilities could be discharged.
Our standard rate is £25 per hour. If you have a specific project in mind, please contact us for a more detailed quote to suit your needs.
