At the same time, the team has expanded as its client base has grown. The business has taken on an extra five team members. They include

  • An HR consultant
  • Two trainee HR advisers
  • A senior HR adviser
  • And an HR administrator.

‘Since January in particular, we have seen a big upturn in the numbers of new clients we’re welcoming on board,’ said Peter Jones, Managing Director of the HR Dept. ‘We’re particularly pleased that by far the majority come to us because of recommendation. We’ve also had several clients return to us, who’d taken a dip during Covid. But are once again needing our services.’

What the HR Dept does

The HR Dept helps clients with everything from:

  • Creating employment documentation and keeping it updated …
  • … to advising on complicated HR and employment law issues
  • Or designing appraisal systems, pay benchmarking and staff surveys.

In fact, everything an in-house corporate HR department would do but far more cost-effectively.

Remy Morland, the HR Dept’s Head of HR Consultancy, said many clients were now using additional services. ‘We’ve enhanced the service we provide for several clients. Whereas before they might have only used our advice line, now we’re providing hands-on, day-to-day HR support. Thus, in essence, we’re acting as their outsourced HR team.’

The HR Dept prides itself on developing the next generation of HR professionals. And its two new trainee HR advisers are the latest in a long line of trainees. Remy herself, who now heads up the team, was the first trainee with the HR Dept.

The HR Dept supports clients in a range of sectors, with manufacturing, IT and tech, and trades being particularly strong. It works with businesses across Swindon, Chippenham and Hungerford. Also Marlborough, Calne, Devizes, Burford, Lechlade and Carterton.
