“Solutions for HR have been a supportive and effective partner to Financial Options Group for a number of years. The team carries out all the functions you would expect from an in-house HR department. At a transactional level, they manage our admin and process orientated HR including contracts and policy writing. When managing HR and employment law issues such as performance management and termination they offer a no nonsense and solution driven approach.”

“I have worked with Solutions for HR for almost 4 years now. We are a relatively small charity which employs 40+ people. We are not big enough to have in house personnel staff but are big enough to value the staff we have and want to operate within the law and be seen as delivering best practice in all areas. Solutions for HR are always on hand to provide help whether that be a quick consultation or legal advice. They have supported us in a variety of circumstances including proposed changes to staff contracts, TUPE, recruitment, disciplinary action and developing the employee handbook. In all cases the team at Solutions for HR are helpful, thorough and responsive. They are a vital element of my “team”.”

I couldn't recommend Solutions for HR highly enough!! Their team are so knowledgeable but also very friendly and quick to respond. They provide excellent and clear guidance when we need it and having the retainer is so reassuring, when HR issues can sometimes be unpredictable. They are so invaluable to our growing start up!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Solutions for HR, a leading HR company based in Manchester, and I must say, I was extremely impressed with their level of professionalism, expertise, and commitment to their clients. From the very beginning, both Jane's (Jayne and Jane) were attentive to my needs and worked tirelessly to ensure that I received the best possible service. They took the time to understand my business and its unique challenges, and developed a customised HR solution that perfectly met my needs. Their team of experts were knowledgeable, approachable, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that I was satisfied with the services they provided. They were also very responsive, and I always felt like they had my best interests at heart. Overall, I would highly recommend Solutions for HR to anyone looking for great HR services. They are a company that truly cares about their clients, and they will work tirelessly to help you achieve your business goals. Thank you Solutions for HR for your outstanding service!
