All businesses must comply with employment law when employing staff but most business owners don’t know where to start. This is where Keeping HR Simple can help with proactive, solutions led and forward thinking HR support.

Having a small or medium business often means that you don’t have the budget or need for an in-house HR Manager. What you do want is the peace of mind of knowing someone is in your corner when it comes to some of the complex and sensitive issues you have to deal with when you have staff in your business.

With a range of services to suit your business needs, we can support you with HR document templates, telephone, email support or onsite support, employment law updates and advice from experienced HR Advisors who understand your business.

There’s no need to struggle alone or spend your precious time researching employment law and legislation. We are there whenever you need us, saving you time and money and the potential pitfalls of not understanding the correct processes to follow when making decisions about your staff.

My interactions with Katherine, Jason and the team have all been positive. They are knowledgeable, professional and approachable and a great company for any small business to turn to for HR support.

Keeping HR Simple have helped us with all of our internal HR documentation from staff handbooks to GDPR policies and have done a fantastic job in supporting us. Perhaps the most valuable service they have provided however is the motivational maps for the team. This has really helped us with recruitment and making sure we know exactly how to motivate our staff, which surprisingly is not always through a pay rise! If you want to know more about your team and make sure all the compliance is taken care, I cannot recommend Keeping HR Simple highly enough.

We are a small business with only 10 members of staff but with Employment Law changing as quickly as it does we are in need of some expert help and advice. Katherine and Jason have provided that service. They have supported the Company and its Employees over the past 8 years. They assist us in recruitment, disciplinaries, appraisals, strategic planning, in fact anything HR related. We are delighted with the professionalism of their work and the relationship they have built with us and our Employees and will continue to have a long-term working relationship with them. I would highly recommend their services to any other business.

We have a small business, and can't justify our own HR department, and so looked for an HR support company. We searched for choices, and decided to go ahead with Keeping HR Simple because unlike the others, they took time and care to understand what we were looking for...other companies had a "one size fits all" approach, and our type of business or specific needs seemed irrelevant, which put us off.
We have now worked with Keeping HR Simple for 6 years, and absolutely made the right choice. In fact, we couldn't have managed the last 6 years without them. Their support and advice is clear and understandable (cutting through jargon), delivered in a friendly and reassuring way (it's so comforting to know someone is on your side), and ensures that we have a way forward which works for our business, and meets legislation. This can only come from a wealth of experience.
As a business owner, you never know what is around the corner, and when you'll need HR support. Keeping HR Simple provides this to such a level of excellence that we'll never consider going anywhere else.

Keeping HR Simple Q&A

Keeping HR Simple Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

We love to help businesses be the best they can be. If you believe Richard Branson when he says "your staff are your greatest asset" then helping businesses be the best they can be surely starts with the people your business employs. If your employees are empowered, engaged and have a sense of where the business is headed they are more productive, happier to embrace new challenges and real ambassador for your business.

What inspired you to start your own business?

The desire to help people and businesses, both of us had a foot in HR already both from a formal education stand point and a practical point of view. We know how to manage and engage staff, how to handle difficult conversations and the processes that should be followed when dealing with HR challenges so a business providing HR support was a natural choice for us.

Why should our clients choose you?

We always offer best practise scenarios ensuring our clients understand fully any potential risks they may be taking. We are a solutions led group of people so we are creative in our thinking and having had many years advising clients and coming across different scenarios we can advise not only next steps but likely outcomes.
