Services and Packages

The HR Dept Bristol, Bath and North Somerset provides businesses with tailored and personal outsourced HR and Health and Safety services at the fraction of the cost of having an in-house team; because we understand the challenges of managing people problems whilst growing your business.

We have a range of HR support packages to cater for any sized business with any number of employees. Contact the Bristol, Bath and North Somerset team on 0117 970 2955 or email for more information.

The HR Dept’s service packages include:

Advice Line

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 the best solution, saving on average £33,380 per year.

Crucially, our Advice Line + includes Tribunal Indemnity Insurance, meaning as long as you’ve followed our advice from the outset you’re covered against any Tribunal costs and potential awards.

You’ll also have access to expert, local HR support from a qualified professional, who will get to know your business and will learn how you operate. You also get additional documentation including your Contracts, Handbooks and Policies which 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 eight 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” in the company and what’s expected of your employees. These will be regularly kept up-to-date to reflect any changes in HR and employment legislation.

Flying Start + 

Flying start + is our service package designed specifically for micro businesses taking on their first employees, giving you the peace of mind that you’re legally compliant as you start to grow.

If you’re a micro-business gearing up to take on your first staff member, rest assured we have the expertise to help you take the first leap. Whether you have one employee or 100, employment law still applies.

With our Flying Start package, you’ll have access to a wide range of support including a team handbook, employment contracts, a HR admin starter pack with all of the forms you’ll need, disciplinary and grievance procedures and much more.

This is the perfect first step to put your mind at ease when taking that first step.

Pay As You Go 

This service provides expert Pay as You Go HR support, as and when you need it. Perfect for those one-off HR issues that require a professional’s 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.
