Do you just need a helping hand with compliance?

Do you lack the time, skills, energy or motivation to deal with regulations and compliance yourself? Do you even understand what you need to do or where to start?

Don’t worry, there are thousands of organisations just like you! 

Advisory Approach

Do you need help in a specific area? Or perhaps a full support package?

We provide a range of advisory services which can be tailored to provide the support you need, all underpinned by our Gydeline Method and software dashboards so you can see exactly where your company is on its journey.

Our advisory services support your organisation in learning, adopting and embracing better ways of working and maintaining compliance in the long term.

We also know that you need to control costs, so we are very open about our pricing.

Outputs

All our consulting engagements provide pre-defined outputs. You are then free to take these outputs and action them yourself or engage us or others to do so. As with everything Gydeline does, they are clear, simple and straightforwards.

Compliance Advice

Are you aware of the basic rules and regulations needed to run a business?  Do you know if you are complying with these requirements? 

Our compliance advice service supports businesses through the process of understanding where they are and creating a plan to put things right.

Understanding the steps you need to follow
List of compliances essential for business

What is it?

There are a large number of rules and regulations with which all organisations need to comply. These include finance, employment, health and safety, selling, data protection, etc etc

There are also industry specific regulations with which you may need to comply.

Our compliance advice service will assess your position again all these required rules and regulations and give you the knowledge and confidence to move forwards to a compliant position. Being able to promote a compliant position not only gives you reassurance but makes your business far more appealing to potential customers than your competition.

What output can you expect?

With 100’s of years experience in understanding and completing compliance, Gydeline helps you to prepare for and deliver compliant services and goods and to complete any documents, processes or evidence required. There are broadly three outputs that are provided:

Understand shortfalls

  • Which regulations apply to you
  • What further evidence or systems do you need

Prioritised actions

  • What is most important to YOUR business
  • Which actions present the most risk

Know where to go next

  • Who can guide you through your actions
  • Are there any other sources of information you need to be aware of

Our Approach

To provide you with the greatest flexibility in picking the help you need, we provide services tailored to your needs: 

Gyding Hand Starter Pack:

Because flexibility and choice can still be difficult to fathom, we have put together a basic package of services to just get you going. This is a fixed price with clear deliverables to get you on the road to compliance.

Advisory:

Usually half a day for each aspect of compliance, we provide a contact to answer your questions as you work through your own compliance plan. This would suit the organisation that has the capacity to handle the workload, but needs help understanding what is needed

Supporting:

This level of support generally starts at one day per aspect of compliance.  We would take a more involved role in the activity, providing training, advice and bolster your capacity. This provides for those that need more than pure advice with some hands-on resource.

Greater Depth:

With this type of support you get a skilled resource who can work with your team to do what is necessary to move you towards compliance. If your organisation is lacking the available resources to get through the workload, this is for you.

We support you through the process of proving you are meeting requirements and that contracts contain everything they need.

Understanding the steps you need to follow
Understand the steps you need to follow

What is it?

When you run an organisation, enter into a contract with a customer or another business, you are accepting a number of responsibilities that will be expected of you and that you expect in return.  Audit and due diligence are activities which check contracts, documents, processes, systems and policies to ensure that everyone is doing what they said they would and what is required by law.

It is becoming increasingly common for organisations to check compliance with their contracts.  You should be checking that organisations which provide you with services are fulfilling their side of the deal as their activities can directly affect your compliance and you can be held responsible.  

What output can you expect?

With 100’s of years experience in getting the best out of contracts and proving that you’re doing what you’ve promised to do, Gydeline helps you to prepare for and deliver audits and ‘due diligence’ checks on contracts and to complete any assessments requesting information.  There are broadly three occasions when audit or due diligence is undertaken and we can help with:

Letting a new contract

  • What would be good for you to know before signing that contract?
  • What regular checks should be included in contract reviews?

Responding to a review request

  • Have you got the evidence available?  Is it good enough?
  • What's the best way to answer the questions?

Reviewing others compliance

  • What questions should you be asking of in a contract review?
  • Is the answers and evidence that has been provided good enough?

Document Reviews

Are you stuck on the content, context, compliance and completeness of key documents? 

We can help you by reviewing and writing your compliance and business documents.

Confused by overwhelming documentation
Assisting with documentation reviews

What is it?

At Gydeline we have many years experience reviewing and writing all forms of business documentation. We use the experience and collateral we have gained to quickly and cost effectively produce, high quality focused documentation for you.

What output can you expect?

Firstly we provide a detailed analysis of your existing documents and explain what is required to make them fit for purpose.

We can then take this a stage further and produce finished documents for you, ready for use.

What method do you use?

In order to ensure you receive a consistent, understandable output we feedback based on 4 key areas:

Context

Is it clear what the document is for, who it is aimed at and who owns it? Has the scope been defined and is there a process for updates and review?

Completeness

Taking into account the size, type, nature and scope of the organisation, does the document contain all the elements that would be expected?

Content

How clear and useful is the content? Is information presented in a clear, specific, concise and simple way to make it understandable to its audience? Is it of good quality?

Compliance

Are all the legally required elements contained? Is the wording appropriate to cover these elements?

Do you understand the business and compliance challenges that your organisation faces?
