The HR Dept is the UK’s fastest growing network of HR professionals providing practical and pragmatic outsourced HR to SMEs. With 60 franchisees covering 80 territories in the UK and Ireland we are now looking to export our successful franchise to Australia.
The HR Dept was started in 2002 by Founder and Executive Director, Sue Tumelty. Having come from a corporate background, Sue found that the hardest part of setting up the business wasn't the HR side of things, but instead the business aspects and the marketing. So when the original Bristol office began to thrive she began to think how she could help other HR professionals set up quickly and easily under The HR Dept brand. Our vision is to have an expanding network of HR Dept local offices in many countries providing local and personal, high quality, cost effective services to SMEs marketplace. Not many SMEs can afford the luxury or actually require a full time HR presence. Nevertheless, employers still need to understand and comply with ever-changing employment legislation and with our ability to provide employers’ liability indemnity insurance covering legal expenses and settlements, they get true peace of mind.
