At approximately 13.30pm on 20th November a graphic demonstrating the competitive advantages of The HR Dept’s business model was posted on social media. This was an isolated post. It was not part of our public-facing marketing strategy and was not intended for use on social media.
Although removed from our relevant profiles, the graphic has since been seen and shared within online networks of independent HR consultants, some of whom are understandably upset by its content. We would like to emphasise that many of our licensees collaborate extremely effectively with independent HR consultants and it was certainly not our intention to antagonise any of their relationships.
This graphic was not created to be derogatory to independent HR consultants. However, we recognise and have apologised for the offence caused by the way it was presented.
