Client testimonials

We were recommended to Serena and her team by another similar sized business to us. We have 28 staff and was finding it hard to keep on top of the HR in house. We found it was taking away from the day to day of running a successful business, we also felt the stress and pressure of looking after the HR was causing us to not focus properly on progressing the business.

It was without question one of the best business decisions we have made. Having Serena and her team on call for any problem alleviates any uncertainty with any HR problem. It gives us the confidence that we are handling the situation correctly and that allows us to implement the right procedure to sort it out safe in the knowledge we are doing everything right.

If you were thinking of outsourcing your HR this is the company you should go to.

While the world has Batman and Robin to ensure justice and tranquility for all, Cobb PR and Cobb Digital have access to an even better dynamic duo … Serena and Lisa at The HR department. In the good times, they are wonderful sources of knowledge and have answers for all our questions. But when times get a bit more challenging, they have proven to be knowledgeable, supportive and terrier-like in their advice and attention to detail. Without doubt, they are the best team to have on your side. My only hesitation in recommending them is that I don’t like sharing!

It is a pleasure working with the HR Dept in Eastbourne. They deal with both routine and exceptional HR matters in a responsive, knowledgeable and unfussy, practical way. I have recommended them to several other businesses and would be happy to do so again.

Very approachable, and very sensible with their help and advice. Dealing with staff problems is a mine field, and getting worse, but with these people on board I know I am following the correct procedure to hopefully resolve any problems that may arise. Keith Price Eastbourne Tyre Co Ltd

Instructing the HR Department was the best business decision we’ve made in a long time. From the very beginning they helped us with the introduction of robust staff contracts and employee handbook that isn’t filled with jargon, it contains clear and understandable policies. The knowledge and expertise of Serena and Lisa in employment matters is excellent and it is reassuring to know that we are able to trust them completely. However, more importantly to us, they are considered to be members of our team who not only continue to provide us with the best advice but regularly exceed our expectations, are friendly, approachable and always available when we need them. I would have no hesitation in recommending HR Department, they would be a huge asset to any business.
