Retained Services

Dedicated HR support for you and your business

HR Support – Retained Services to Suit Your Business

For a fixed monthly fee, you can secure our expert services on a retainer basis. You can choose to get HR support over the telephone and by email, schedule regular onsite visits, or opt for full outsourcing of your HR function. We will discuss the type and level of support you need and allocate an agreed number of hours to be used as you wish, starting from a minimum of just two hours per month. As your requirements change, we will review the hours and fee to suit your circumstances. Our approach is to provide a ‘flexible’ option that meets a changing business environment rather than tie you into an arrangement that no longer suits your needs.

Introducing our Flexi-Retainer

If you are not fully utilising the retainer for HR support, we are able to offer you flexibility by using the unused retainer sum to fund the use of services provided by our sister companies in the Loch Associates Group. For example, unused elements of the retainer can fun attendance on first aid courses by Loch Health, or for employment law advice provided by Loch Employment Law, or to provide training from HR Advise Me.

Reduce Your HR Burden

Choosing our retained HR support means you can instantly reduce your HR burden, enabling you to focus on growing your business. It brings peace of mind, knowing you can call on professionals to handle HR issues, and reduces the risk to your business from employee challenges. All our advice and support reflects the latest developments in employment law, thanks to our close relationship with our sister company, Loch Employment Law.

Dedicated HR Support Consultants

A key feature of the retainer is that you will be allocated a dedicated HR support Consultant who will get to know you, your organisation and your key business issues. They can provide support to you in delivering changes to processes as required and/or be on site to manage directly any sensitive employee issues on your behalf, leaving you to focus on other matters.
