How we help
Actionable insight into your people matters
Provided on request, our management information (MI) reports detail the activities of all of the advisory and litigation services provided by Ellis Whittam – that’s anything from phone calls with your adviser, to email correspondence, to documents and casework.
Our MI reports also show you the sorts of matters that you’re requiring support with most often and total usage/activities by site, department or manager, enabling you to identify trends, problem hotspots and top five matters.
- Spot trends with monthly MI reports, plus a ‘year to date’ overview for bigger-picture insight
- Prioritise your resources with tailored reports focusing on your particular areas of concern
- Understand where within the business your EW support isn’t being fully utilised
- Expert recommendations from your dedicated team on how to address your challenges
- Help to arrange any additional support you require, including HR Consultancy
Get a handle on employee issues
Good people management is proactive rather than reactive. Especially in larger organisations, where employee issues are more abundant and less visible, it is essential to understand the full picture so that you can pre-empt people problems and ultimately drive your organisation forward. Our MI reporting helps you do exactly that.
Plus, with support from a dedicated team of legally-qualified Employment Law specialists, you can talk through the findings and identify practical ways to improve performance across your organisation, whether that’s revising a HR process, discussing the next steps in defending ongoing claims, or arranging HR management training and strategic consultancy support.
We have 2.4 X the number of qualified solicitors than any of our larger competitors
