“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”.”
