We are a mix of CIPD qualified HR professionals, legally trained employment specialists and H&S qualified professionals. As such, you can be assured that you will receive advice which both meets your HR/H&S requirements and fully complies in your jurisdiction.
There is no such thing as totally ‘risk free’ advice, but we will explain your options to you and assess the levels of risk attached to each option – you are then free to make an informed decision for your business.
We believe that clients should be able to gain access to robust, cost effective employment and Health & Safety advice without paying exorbitant fees or worrying whether the advice is accurate, this is the service you will receive from HR At Work.
Any form of outsourcing should improve efficiency and reduce cost – if it doesn’t, something isn’t working.
