Outsourced HR Services
What do Human Resources actually do?
HR departments are a very busy back office function with often little to show of their hard work. If you’ve been fortunate enough to have worked with a true HR Business Partner, you’ll know that they know everything about the business, how it operates, who to talk to, how to talk to them and how to get the best out of them. This inside knowledge allows companies to thrive with its people leading the business forwards.

Why outsource your HR Function?
1. MONEY SAVING
Running a fully functioning HR Department requires qualified and experienced HR professionals. Hiring just one HR Manager will cost you between £60,000 to £80,000 in salary alone. Most startups simply can’t afford this and would rather spend their money on the business functions that generate revenue rather than back office expenses. Outsourcing your HR function allows you to have world-class specialists without having to pay the big salary. Our outsourcing costs are variable and can be reduced when business needs warrant.
2. TIME SAVING
Outsourcing your HR, frees up your time to concentrate on what you are supposed to be doing. Investigating misconduct, grievances or managing a change process can take weeks of work. We are able to dedicate our full time and attention to these cases so your business is not impacted. We will provide clear summary updates and let you maintain control without having to do all the hard work.
3. RISK REDUCING
It can be difficult for companies without an HR function to remain up to date on regulations that affect the workplace. There is a constant threat of litigation for sexual harassment, bullying, discrimination and wrongful dismissal. We succeed in taking away this concern, we keep up to date and reduce your exposure to risk of costly claims brought forward by employees. Employment law changes regularly and we provide updates to our clients as well as reviewing and writing policies inline with UK employment law.

It is said that if you want to get a job done, give it to a busy person — Jo is that person. Despite being pulled in multiple directions, Jo is never flustered, always approachable, open and dependable, never dropping the ball, and, using her soft skills to great effect, demanding the same of those she interacts with. Moreover, not satisfied with just carrying on the day to day asks of her, as an experienced HR professional Jo continually looks for opportunities to make the HR function more scalable in general through improvements to internal processes. Jo’s role as HR Business Partner to the Technology function has helped that team to literally change up a gear with its recruitment and on-boarding process. Specifically, Jo has been a massive help to me in recruiting a new team from scratch and has delivered fully across a broad spectrum of HR responsibilities in that regard. At interview Jo’s contribution was priceless in surfacing issues that would have otherwise gone undetected. Jo is a great communicator at all levels of the business and is also very comfortable speaking with authority to the whole company on behalf of the HR team during all-staff meetings. Jo’s good mix of professionalism and sense of humour make her an absolute joy to work with, she is liked by all who come into contact with her. I count her as a valued professional colleague and trusted friend. If you have the chance of working with her don’t miss it.
