Who we are

Emma Fay is Managing Director of HR Dept Wilmslow and has been since June 2014. Beginning her HR career in 2008 working in children’s services, Emma worked her way up to the role of HR Team Leader where she ran a small team. Emma is qualified to postgraduate level with the CIPD, is an International Mediation Institute (IMI) qualified mediator and has a wide range of experience in all manner of people management issues. It is her own management experiences and her hands on involvement with her clients which enable her to give pragmatic and realistic advice that clients can act on.

The HR Dept Wilmslow helps small and medium sized businesses with employment law advice and human resources support at a fraction of the cost of employing an in house HR professional. We pride ourselves on our down to earth, business focused and sensible approach to HR. With HR Dept Wilmslow there are no call centres or account passwords to deal with – just local, personal and flexible HR support. Our core values include being customer focussed, continually updating our skills and knowledge and being honest and open.

Described by clients as “the best investment in my business” and “fantastic to work with” our approach to outsourced HR makes us stand out. You can hear more about what our clients say by clicking here.

We provide you with as much or as little HR support and employment law advice as you need. We do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to small and medium sized businesses and we understand (being a small business ourselves) the challenges that you face. Whether you need us there with you in meetings or at the end of the phone, we work around you.

The range of services we offer include:

  • Contracts of employment
  • Employee handbooks and HR policies
  • Employment law advice
  • On site HR assistance
  • Workplace mediation
  • HR software
  • Insurance against tribunal claims
  • Employee engagement
  • HR training and e-learning
  • Disciplinary and grievance
  • Performance management
  • Absence management
  • Redundancies
  • Appraisals
  • And more…

We are passionate about helping small businesses and so we offer a complimentary HR health check and initial consultation to discuss your needs and any live HR issues that you’re dealing with. To arrange this with absolutely no obligation, call us on 01625 460 694 or email emma.fay@hrdept.co.uk
