‘The HR Dept prides itself on providing local and personal HR support to SMEs, the lifeblood of our economy, with a practical and pragmatic approach.

We have a proactive approach to HR which is why we work with businesses to prevent people problems from becoming issues in the future’.

‘It’s a great feeling to be a real valuable resource to an SME’s core business, by incorporating practical ‘people problem’ solutions. Whether it’s preventing an unfair dismissal award in the labour courts, reducing overtime spend, or empowering managers to make decisions with confidence that they are not exposing the company to a claim’.
