We have 4 clear services that assist organisations with matters associated with employing people:


HR Manager Service

If your organisation has no Human Resources department or requires additional people support, then this is the service for your business. A retained service that we personally design in partnership with you and can include payroll and Health & Safety, we ensure your HR requirements are supported within your budgetary constraints.

HR Documentation Service

This HR service focuses on protecting your business legally, reducing the chances of employee disputes and employment tribunal claims. You can be sure that all employment documents supplied by ABC HR will comply with current legislation and ensure all of your employees are treated on a fair and equal basis.

HR ValuePlus Service

We offer tailored HR advice and support to suit your needs and requirements. We offer support on an as an when basis  during times of need, or we can support you on bigger projects that take your business to the next level.

HR Training Service

We can offer training solutions in all aspects of people management, either on site or at our own training facilities. It may be Equal Opportunities training for your managers or, an Employment law update


Each service provides organisations access to affordable services based on their own requirements. We do not just take things “off the shelf” and rebadge it for your organisation, nor do we palm you off with a call centre worker who does not know you or your business. We work with you to understand the issues at hand and deal with them in the most cost effective and legally compliant way we can.
