How Retained HR Works

Having this type of expertise in house is often seen as a luxury. With the average annual salary of an HR Director being in excess of £70k it is often out of reach. However, these packages offer you HR support Monday to Friday between 9.00am and 5pm (and often outside these hours). You’ll have the ability to run through any of your people challenges, providing a reliable sounding board for you. With your trusted HR advisor, you’ll be offered objective advice – basically an HR director on call when you need it. However, it comes at a fraction of the cost, with no additional employers NI, tax, pension, holiday or sickness expenses!

Our retainer packages can offer you peace of mind when you need it, on the phone or via email. Other advice services may give you the advice and send you on your way. At Cooperative HR however, we ensure you are fully equipped to deal with any issue. Whether we provide draft letters, a full step-by-step process or an actual script, you’ll be confident dealing with the situation.
