We provide affordable expert HR support and employment law advice to small and medium sized employers across South East London and North Kent.
As a small business owner, you cannot be an expert in everything, but often you cannot afford to employ someone full time to advise you either. That’s where The HR Dept comes in.
Outsourcing your human resources to us is like having your own HR Consultant at the end of the phone – someone who knows you, knows your business, and can provide immediate, appropriate, expert HR support and employment law advice, but at a fraction of the cost of a permanent HR employee.
Outsourcing your HR needs to The HR Dept will free up your time to spend on growing and developing your business!
Based in Dartford in Kent, we are part of a nationwide network of HR professionals which means we can also offer employment tribunal insurance and other HR services.
We provide employers with tailored cost-effective HR advice for one-off issues or ongoing support. Our packages are competitive and flexible, and tailored to the specific human resource needs of your company. And as well as financial savings, working with the HR Dept saves you time, enabling you to focus on delivering your core business objectives.
Where we started
After 40 years of experience, Simon Morgan left a successful career as Head of HR and Development at City & Guilds to start his own HR Dept Franchise in 2007
“For many years Simon ran the company with passion and with his heart, making everyone he worked along-side and with feel comfortable and appreciated despite any challenges that were being faced. He drove the business with genuine love for supporting company owners through the obstacles that being in business could bring. We miss him dearly but we’re happy to say his spirit and ethics still live on through our work we carry out today.”
Wanting to ensure that the businesses he worked with were still supported Simon passed the business on to Miguel Calabrese from Blue Rocket Accounting.
Sadly, in December 2020, Simon died from Cholangiocarcinoma, cancer in the bile duct. His family are raising money for the charity AMMF who specialise in providing support for this specific type of cancer. If you wish to make a donation to this cause please follow the link to Simon’s family’s Just Giving Page. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/simonjohnmorgan
