Need help with your human resource (HR) management?

All employers need to manage HR adequately within their company. And businesses in the leisure and sports industry are no different.

Build strength in your HR documentation

Owning a business in the leisure sector is no walk in the park - or rather, no relaxing dip in the pool. And whilst you focus on providing the best experience for your customers, you must also ensure Health & Safety is maintained at all times.

In fact, making sure you protect people from harm - including your employees and customers - is one of your main legal responsibilities. But, if you don’t follow safety regulations, you might be unable to prevent an accident occurring. And if someone suffers a serious injury, you could face legal and financial damages.

With Peninsula’s help, you can be assured that your business's Health & Safety is managed effectively. When you work with Peninsula, you can access our:

Employment Rights Act (1996).

Not only do you have to manage staff and shifts, but you are required to draft specific policies and documentation. But if you haven't done this before, you may not know where to start.

That's where Peninsula can help. With unlimited documentation support, you’ll receive expert-made:

Grievance and disciplinary procedures.

So whilst you grow your leisure business, leave your HR documentation to the employment law experts. And whenever the legislation changes, you can feel confident your documentation consultants will update your paperwork to keep you safe.

Peninsula understands how important employee wellbeing is...

Running a business in the leisure and sports industry can be stressful, not only for you - but for your employees as well.

Working busy shifts, dealing with children and young people, and being on their feet from start to finish can hurt their mental health. And as an employer, it’s your responsibility to protect their wellbeing whilst at work.

With Peninsula’s Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), you can direct your employees to unlimited mental health support.

So, for any problems staff face in their working or personal life guide them through it with award-winning wellbeing services.

With Peninsula’s EAP service, your staff will enjoy access to:

24/7 counselling.

In-person therapy.

Access to a suite of online tools.

It's how thousands of UK employers boost wellbeing, productivity, and attendance rates.

Solve any HR issue with our 24/7 advice line

In the leisure sector, your employees will likely perform a variety of responsibilities; from setting up sports courts to serving coffee.

And, whilst it might seem like everything is running smoothly - a problem can arise with your employees when you least expect it. Meaning, you need to be aware of the HR issues that can happen within the industry. For example, you might have problems with:

The Working Time Regulations.

Ensuring staff have completed the relevant training.

Managing shift patterns.

Managing workplace conflicts between employees.


Whilst these are common issues, you may not have a specific HR team in place to resolve them.

By working with Peninsula, you have full access to our 24/7 helpline, available 365 days a year. So no matter the time or day, you can speak to an employment law consultant about any HR issue.
