We would recommend The HR Dept to anyone looking for affordable HR support with a friendly approach.
We never would have believed that a small Company like ours would need the help of an outsourced HR department, but after being with Simon for the last seven years, I now realise how wrong we were. Simon has been invaluable to our Company, on three separate occasions he has given us advice with staff and even attended disciplinary and redundancy meetings. Knowing that we are doing everything correctly brings a great sense of relief. We can rely on Simon 100%, his systematic approach to problems lets us get on with running our business. We have recommended Simon to many of our clients and they are now also benefiting from Simon's extensive knowledge and experience of HR.
We have worked with Simon for Several years, and have always found his advice to be very professional and highly useful. I would personally recommend Simon to any business seeking HR Support.
We are in the IT support business. People count on us to keep their systems and people working. We think of Simon in the same way when it comes to our HR. Over the last 8 years, Simon has always provided common sense advice. Simon also acts as our external HR manager, producing all our HR material and updating when required. We would truly be lost without him.
Our working relationship with Simon began with him introducing a new staff appraisal system for us, including collecting upward feedback for senior managers. This project went so well we were keen to ask Simon to run recruitment for us, including advertising, shortlisting and initial interviews plus all the communication with applicants. He has also refreshed our employment handbook and introduced the online HR Dept Toolkit. With a part-time management team running a complex organisation it gives us real peace of mind to know that we can call on someone we really trust to give us practical help and support whenever we need it.
Simon is easily contactable. When we are making key HR decisions, we are confident to apply the clear and straightforward guidance he provides.
We have attended many of the HR Dept’s free workshop/seminars which we have also found to be helpful and informative.
Simon is easy to contact, quick to respond and, most importantly of all, his advice is practical. He understands that we need approaches and solutions that work for us and for our business and this is what he provides. We have no hesitation in recommending Simon to anyone considering this type of service.
