HR Service Levels

All businesses are different. Some are big, some are small, some only need ad hoc support and others require it on-going. Our support packages are designed to reflect this. Which one meets your needs?

Pay As You Go

DETAILSExpand panel

Expert Pay as You Go HR support, as and when you need it. For those one-off HR issues that require a professionals opinion.

Our services are designed to help you achieve the result you want by telling you what you can do, not what you can’t. Whether it’s help with recruitment or redundancy or anything else a large corporate HR team could provide, The HR Dept can be of assistance, leaving you free to get on with growing your business.

These services are available on a Pay as You Go basis, providing small businesses with access to instant and affordable HR support directly from the experts on-site, by phone or by email.

Advice Line

DETAILSExpand panel

Employment law continues to become more complex, the costs of getting it wrong have never been higher!

As an Advice Line customer you'll have access to unlimited HR advice and support via phone and email. SMEs can rarely justify the cost of a full time in-house HR presence, making outsourcing by far and away the best solution.

With the Advice Line you'll have access to expertly provided local HR support from a qualified professional, one that'll get to know your business and how you operate, all at a fraction of the cost of an in-house HR professional. Crucially, our Advice Line includes Tribunal Indemnity Insurance, so as long as you've followed our advice from outset you're covered against any Tribunal costs and potential awards.

It's still the Advice Line, but with additional documentation included it really is the full package for a business looking to outsource their HR.

You still get unlimited access to your local HR office for insured advice, but with Advice Line + your Contracts, Handbooks and Policies are all covered for you under the small monthly fee.

Why is this so important? When you first take on an employee you're legally required to provide them with an employment contract within 8 weeks. Within this should be your company policies (written by us) and the terms and conditions of their employment with you.

Handbooks too are essential when taking on staff. They set out clearly "how things are done" where you work, and what's expected of your employees. These will be kept up-to-date regularily to reflect any changes in HR and employment legislation.
