A recent survey on interactive law revealed that 64% of managers did not want spurious HR methodology thrown at them. This has been a key consideration in the launch of a new LegalHR site, which puts the emphasis on information on legal matters to do with the day-to-day running of an office and personnel.
The survey was carried out last month on www.interactive-law.co.uk, where 8,532 responses were received. According to the same survey, 56% of small businesses are not sure if their operation is being run according to the letter of the law.
Adrian Miles is the founding director of Interactive Law, LegalHR's creator. He says many HR solutions have been created online, but believes they have all missed the point.
"Most managers do not have time to spend surfing for the latest news about HR. What they do want is fast access to essential legal information and ways to instruct a solicitor when the need arises."
"This is the niche that we have found. The idea is to take them to the pages they want, without HR-related quotes from the rich and famous; without trying to sell related products; and without filling the information database with non-related tips."
The information has been pulled together from Interactive Law's UK panel of solicitors dealing with employment and company law. The subscription service also offers a referral section. HR managers can type in their office's postcode and instruct a solicitor with a company or an employment law problem.
