How to use Tools
Click a tool to browse all XpertHR resources available within your selected tool. Most XpertHR tools are based on a particular type of information, such as Policies and documents, Line manager briefings, or the Employment law manual. Other tools, such as Liveflo and Salary surveys, are based on a different user interface - in the case of Liveflo, interactive flowcharts, and in the case of Salary surveys, spreadsheets, reports and our interactive job-pricing application.
From the tools menu:
- Select a tool, such as Policies and documents, to go to the tool homepage and view a list of new and updated articles belonging to that tool. From the tool home page you may also have the option of selecting tool categories, such as "termination of employment", to view a more targeted list of articles. Some tools have lower-level categories, such as "redundancy" and "redundancy payments" in this example.
- Click the "browse all tools" button at the bottom of the tools dropdown menu to go to the tools homepage. From this page you can view a list of tools, broken down by broad subject area, including Employment law and Good practice.
You can also access all XpertHR tools from the page footer at the bottom of every page.

Tool icons and colours
Each tool has its own icon and colour. You may find that this helps you to identify articles from particular tools when viewing lists such as search results. However, we never use colour alone to provide information about an article.

Search within tools
Search within your selected tool using the tool's local search box - and refine your search results by topic and date (publication date, or when the item was last updated, where the content is kept up to date). You can also expand your search across the entire site.
