Her set up is simple, BlackRedGreenLTD provides a virtual and onsite full HR management and advice service fitted around your business and people needs – its aim is to enable and assist your business delivery! Jennie has a common sense, honest and most importantly fun approach.

Think you don’t need HR? That it’s just a department for big organisations? A policing function? Here is 3 reasons you do.

#1: Legislation! 

Yep we said it, straight into the mundane world of the demands placed on you as an employer. Ask yourself this though, do you know and implement all the legislation required to employ just ONE person in the UK? Sick pay, holiday entitlement, contracts, maternity, paternity, and right to time off for dependents? That is in no way an exhaustive list.

BlackRedGreen LTD took this complex work off there hands and the headached that comes with it….they recommended us on our website after helping them, check it out:

#2: Money! 

BlackRedGreenLTD can save you money and can protect your money. Sorry to talk dosh (can we even? I’m British, I’m blushing) The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has undertaken research which shows that the average cost for an employer to defend itself at an employment tribunal is £8,500 whereas the average cost to settle is £5,400. Let us help you avoid this – think it won’t happen to you because you just work with friends? Why take the risk for a price less than that new handbag!
