Research can be time consuming and can distract you from your day to day tasks and growing your business. However effective research is critical to solving problems and helping your business grow. It’s perhaps one of those important, but not urgent tasks that never quite makes it to the top of your to-do list. Hour Hands Research Services can help.
We are experienced in researching issues for businesses. When we have completed thoroughly researching an issue, we present the information back to you; setting out options and the pros and cons. With the results of our research at hand you’ll be able to make an informed decision in the interests of your business.
Here are just some of the topics our Research Services tackled for our clients:
- Apprentice schemes
- Insurance packages for clients
- Employer’s health and safety responsibilities for homeworkers
We looked into whether setting up an apprentice scheme was a viable approach for a business. This involved reviewing online information and speaking with relevant local government and business development specialists and then presenting back the facts, and pros and cons. The client was then in a position to decide whether setting up an apprenticeship scheme was the right decision for their business.
How to use webinars was a topic we researched for a client. This research covered: how webinars could be used by the company concerned – what subject matter is a good fit for webinars, as well as identifying audiences, confirming technical requirements and recommended functionality, the impact of audience size and pricing.
Another client asked to find out what was involved with employees working from home. They needed to know what their responsibilities are and what on-going arrangements need to be put in place. Health and Safety Executive information was reviewed together with various organisations processes for managing Homeworkers. With this information the client was briefed and they asked Hour Hands to complete a Homeworkers’ Checklist so their responsibilities could be discharged.
Hour Hands can undertake research and present back information to help companies solve problems or develop their business.
