How Retained HR Works

Having this type of expertise in house is often seen as a luxury and with the average annual salary of an HR Director being in excess of £70k it is often out of reach, but these packages allow you support Monday to Friday between 9.00 am and 5pm (and often either side when needed) with the ability to run through any of your people challenges, providing a sounding board for you, being a trusted advisor and offering an objective source of advice – basically an HR director on call when you need it at a fraction of the cost and with no additional 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. Where other advice lines may give you the advice and send you on your way, we ensure you are fully equipped to deal with any issue. Whether that’s the draft letters, a full step by step process or an actual script you or your managers will be confident dealing with the situation.
