Legal firm Lindsays has launched a human resources consultancy, prism HR.

The consultancy will complement the work of Lindsays' Employment department, and is headed by experienced HR professional Jane Watson, who previously worked for a large Aberdeen-based consultancy before setting up her own business. 

Services will include support with redundancy exercises, disciplinary and grievance hearings, performance management and absence management.

Ms Watson commented: "An HR consultancy within a law firm is still relatively novel so Lindsays are among the most forward-thinking on this front.

"The need for effective HR advice has never been greater as companies navigate the complex challenges brought about by COVID-19, including the end of the furlough scheme. We are in a rapidly changing environment and it's difficult for organisations to keep up with all of the guidance. Many simply do not have the resources in-house."
