Why outsource HR Services?

Owner-managed or family run businesses often don’t have the resources, time or finances to run costly HR functions in-house. It is for this reason that many choose to outsource their HR services and have their people strategy managed on a flexible, part-time basis.

Bringing an embedded, part-time HR Director into your business to deliver change and growth can help you:

  • Free up your valuable time
  • Focus on employee strengths
  • Plug into expertise you cannot afford full time
  • Focus on the whole function
  • Access HR Specialisms

Case studies

We are proud of our reputation for helping businesses to grow and become more successful. Read what our clients say about us.

Stuart Calvert and Sophie Austin from People Puzzles helped an ambitious online financial comparison company to define its overall strategy and build its leadership team so that it could successfully function independently of its Managing Director.

People Puzzles HR Director Jayne Chadwick was brought into a fast-growing courier company to help realise its ambitions to continue growing, as well as being a great place to work. With three new senior appointments, a newly drafted set of company values and a record turnover, Today Team looks set to achieve its goals.

‘People Puzzles has changed the way our company functions and is making a dramatic difference.’ Rob Cook from People Puzzles has helped the founders of GAMA Healthcare to engage better with its employees, create an effective leadership team and recruit the right people as the company expands further.

“Carole has helped me and the business massively and added real value while helping us shape the business.”
