The Human Contract

The human contract - a more personal approach to employment contracts.

It is so important for employers to make new employees feel supported when they join the business. Establishing a welcoming and supportive environment from the start, whilst providing clear instructions and expectations, creates a foundation for long-term success.

When new employees feel supported, they are more likely to feel confident and capable in their roles, leading to a smoother transition and successful integration into the organisation. A supportive workplace culture can foster positive relationships and collaboration, leading to a more cohesive and effective team.

An employment contract forms the basis for the start of this relationship.

However, standard contracts are legalistic, impersonal and the employment law equivalent of a pre-nup, setting out all the ways the relationship can end and the employee’s obligations after it does.
It doesn’t exactly scream "Welcome aboard!"

That’s why Robinson Ralph and APEX HR have worked together to produce the Human Contract.

It’s an employment contract which, whilst being legally compliant, is written in a warm and welcoming way, which assures each employee that they will be treated as a person rather than just a payroll number.

It establishes the basis for a respectful and trusting relationship.

"I have used it more than 30 times.  Everyone loves it!  It is a real talking point with my new starters, and it provides a real feel for what we are like as a business.”
