After only a short time with Neil we can already see what a massive asset The Personnel Dept will be to our business. Always on hand to help deal with complicated matters regarding employment law, Neil has given us the confidence we needed to move our business forward and gain the most out of our employees. We look forward to many more years working with Neil and appreciate all that he and his company have done for us so far.
Accountancy Firm based throughout Lincolnshire –
Employees: 50+ – Project work
We regularly use The Personnel Dept for queries on employment law and other HR projects. We have found them to be extremely helpful and cost effective: it is a great advantage that they are based locally in Lincoln and are independent. We have established a strong working relationship, built on trust. They understand how we operate and tailor all our requirements to our ‘house style’. I have no hesitation in referring our clients to The Personnel Dept.

The Personnel Dept. has been a huge help to us. They have eliminated a layer of paperwork that we were wasting time and effort on. They have also steered us through the maze of employment regulation. It's not worthwhile for a small business to try to do this themselves. I now have so much more time to spend on my own work and am now able to concentrate more effort on expanding the business.

As the manager of an organisation employing around 50 members of staff with varying contract arrangements I have found working with Neil over the past few months to be invaluable.
His help with rewriting contracts and advice with personnel issue has been efficient and effective. He has always supported this with relevant information and new policies or things that should be included in our employment handbook.
Being able to have access to almost instant HR support was a critical factor in making the decision to go with the Personnel Department and the advice has proven to be reliable, understandable and I have not simply been directed to a webpage for reference.
Our relationship is new but I am confident that the standard will be maintained.
Neil isn’t fazed by anything I direct his way and he has a good rapport with staff and me which makes him approachable and gives us confidence that we can ask for help of any HR issues.
Niche Recruitment Agency in London -
Employees: 50+ - Retained Client
We use The Personnel Dept’s retained services for my Company and I have found it invaluable, particularly through the more difficult periods during the recession. Having the facility to phone or email at any time, and the prompt response we receive, gives us the support we require for our changing and reactive business needs. In the two years we have worked with them they have provided advice and paperwork concerning various HR requirements and issues including:- employment contracts and staff handbook, recruitment, disciplinary, performance management and redundancy. I like the fact they see things from a practical, commercial employers point of view (which is not always typical of HR advisors) and in terms of cost and efficiency, outsourcing our HR function suits us very well due to our size. It allows me to concentrate on other business matters without additional stress. Basically, it gives me peace of mind and saves time and money. I look forward to our continued relationship.
