The HR Dept Exeter Celebrates 250 Number of Clients
The HR Dept Exeter has just reached its 250th client, providing practical employment law advice and support to small and medium-sized businesses.
Since starting the business under The HR Dept national brand in 2010, Belinda Newton (Director) has built up a varied client base to help business owners prevent people problems and focus on the day to day running of the business.
The HR Dept helps local businesses access the levels of expertise and practical support usually reserved for large organisations with in-house HR professionals. Acting as an HR department for SME employers, local HR professionals are on call to provide a full range of support including an advice line to deal with day to day personnel queries and tailored one to one assistance on issues ranging from employment contracts and handbooks, HR policies and procedures, employment law advice to disciplinary and grievance issues.
Director Belinda Newton commented:
“It is our intention to free the business owner of people problems so that they can focus on growing their business. We have the ability to adapt to any business culture and to ensure that the business is seen from the outside in.”
The milestone comes at a time where businesses of all sizes are facing tough economic difficulties. Already burdened employers are plagued by ever changing legislation and it is this that has kept The HR Dept busy.
“Most small and medium-sized businesses don’t need a full-time HR presence, but do need support with dealing with HR issues that arise when employing either their first member of staff or their 100th. It is rewarding to see employers taking a proactive approach to dealing with their workforce and in light of the economic situation, teams of staff are coming together more than ever.”
