Proactive, hands-on HR support to help you manage the day to day stuff

Managing people can be lonely. Faced with making the decisions but not always having the confidence that they’re the right decisions to make. Not knowing where to turn for expert advice when you need it most. That’s where we come in.


All businesses must comply with employment law when employing staff but it can be a challenge for business owners and managers to know where to start. This is where Keeping HR Simple can help with proactive, solutions-led and forward thinking HR support.

Having a small or medium business often means that you don’t have the budget or need for your own HR Manager. What you do want is the peace of mind of knowing someone is in your corner when it comes to the complex and sensitive issues you have to deal with when you have staff in your business. We are experts in dealing with difficult and potentially costly issues such as managing sickness absence, disciplinaries, grievances, redundancies and more.

With a range of services to suit your business needs, we can support you with:

There’s no need to struggle alone or spend your precious time researching employment law and legislation. We are there whenever you need us, saving you time and money and the potential pitfalls of not understanding the correct processes to follow when making decisions about looking after your staff.


Our online training courses improve your management team’s communication and people skills

If we were all born knowing everything there is to know, wouldn’t the world be a very boring place? Where would we be without training?

Incredibly easy and painless process…

Thank you so much for revolutionising our HR systems. Until I met you I thought the HR was something that massive PLCs had to worry about so was deeply concerned when I realised that we had to take it far more seriously! You made the whole process incredibly easy and painless for me though and we now have systems in place for every possible scenario. The communication between me and my team is also vastly better as a result. The contracts and handbook are superb and cost far less than
