Why HR Refresh is a ‘refreshingly different’ type of HR for small business owners

16th January 2018

Read my story on why HR Refresh offers flexible, affordable & convenient HR Support. Plus I reveal the 3 ways you can get HR advice and knowledge for free.

All big corporates have a HR Director.

Having worked for many big corporates as an HR Director, my ultimate responsibility was to find new and  innovative ways to hire, motivate and keep the best and brightest people and protect the business from making costly mistakes. I was paid a six figure salary to take care of the company’s most precious and expenses asset – it’s people.

Essentially my job is all about ensuring the company has the right people with the right skills at the right price, to make the company super successful and get ahead of the competitors. There are many factors that impact this which I have to manage. The quality of the managers, the culture and the way people work together, the pay and benefits, making sure people are trained properly, the ability to find and attract the best people to work for us, dealing with the people who have bad attitudes or are underperforming.

Because technology, products etc. can be so easy to copy, many successful entrepreneurs have started talking about the importance of their employees and working as a team.

“Success in business is all about people, people, people. Whatever industry a company is in, its employees are its biggest competitive advantage”. Richard Branson

Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people. Steve Jobs

But most smaller businesses can’t afford to hire a HR Director.

This means that they can often make costly mistakes, hire the wrong people or fail to achieve their goals fast enough.

As many HR Consultancies can be VERY expensive, outsourcing is equally not always an option for small businesses. Plus many insist on a 12-month tie in clause or offer a traditional old-school HR service, which are unfit for the modern world of work.

I set up HR Refresh because I felt there was a gap in the market to offer top-quality HR support, in a flexible, affordable and convenient way to smaller businesses, with 1 to 300 employees. My modern approach to HR means that you’ll get a more straight-talking practical approach to HR. And there’s certainly no jargon or text book answers. All my prices are on the website, so you don’t have to waste time enquiring. And all my services are pay as you go, or a fixed price.

So whether you’re worried about employment tribunals, confused or scared to hire people (which you know is essential to grow your business) or want to create a brilliant place to work, then I can help.
