Retained HR Support

Outsourced HR services for businesses

Do you lack a dedicated HR function in your business? Who is responsible for your HR admin? Our Retained HR support is the perfect option for managers with a HR responsibility in addition to their own role. We will act as your HR manager. We can come to your business premises to help you manage your employees and any HR issues – or, we can be on the end of the phone, as and when you need us.

Should your business fall short of employment law compliance, you will at risk of costly tribunals, large claims and legal costs, as well as higher insurance policies. Poorly managed people can lead to high staff turnover, bad morale, weak performance and reduced productivity. Complex HR issues often result in a lot of time spent away from your business and lost revenue. Therefore, professional HR support is likely to be your most important investment.

Do you have the right person in your business managing your HR?
  • Do you know how to legally deal with employee conduct issues, such as lateness, attitude, poor quality work and failure to meet deadlines?
  • Do you have full peace of mind that your business is fully compliant with Employment Law?
  • Do you lack the budget to employ a HR Manager, but you employ more than 5 people?
  • Are you aware of the legal compliance relating to Redundancy and TUPE?
  • Are you 100% confident that you could avoid an Employment Tribunal?

Remember, there is no fee to lodge an employment tribunal claim for disgruntled ex-employees – they have nothing to lose and everything to gain!

A client had an issue with an employee’s conduct towards female employees, which resulted in customer complaints and almost a loss of the contract. This was a complex situation, as it included race, sex and disability discrimination. The employee was supported by a trade union, which only served to disrupt the procedure, rather than actually supporting his member. The result was the fair dismissal of the employee and the contract was saved.

Benefits of Outsourcing Your HR

You will have an experienced HR Advisor who will get to know your business, including your values, culture and market position. Our service will be tailored to meet your objectives, helping you plan and manage short and long-term business goals. We will always provide you with options to manage your HR issues – we won’t tell you how to run your business.

At Jude Read HR Consultancy, our team can operate at board level to ensure you have an effective strategy in place to manage your people. Our focus is on building long-term relationships with you, always providing consistent and sound HR advice. By bringing an experienced HR Advisor into your business, you will also improve your company culture and employee engagement.

Employment Law Compliance

When it comes to Employment Law compliance, Retained HR support is your insurance to mitigate disaster – consider it as damage limitation. With strong procedures in place, you will reduce your level of risk, improve your business efficiency, and increase your profit margin.

Commercially Focused Approach

We understand that margins are tight, and you might not be able to afford a full-time HR Manager. Our dedicated outsourced HR support will give you full peace of mind, so you can protect your business. You will benefit from our proactive, practical and commercially focused approach when it comes to your employment matters. Through cost effective and timely management of HR, the value we add to your business is beyond price.

How It Works

You’ll get a dedicated HR Consultant, who will operate at all levels across your business and focus specifically on your employment needs. Your HR Consultant will take time to understand your priorities and concerns, and they won’t try to fit these into a pre-packaged HR template. You will be required to pay 3 months in advance, and then payments are made monthly by direct debit.


Our Retained HR package means you are tied in for 12 months. However, after this time, you will be free to either remain with us or move on, as you wish. If you are unhappy with our support, we do have a 90-day clause that allows you to leave early, but as our focus is on great working relationships, we are very confident that you will be happy with our services!
