Many people think HR is all about process and ticking the right boxes. To some extent this is correct, but there are ways of doing things well. We are experts in employment law, and ensure our clients are fully compliant with all employment legislation (we’re 100% tribunal free!) We can get your business ship shape in no time at all, but we do it in a way that makes your people feel valued. We personalise HR to fit your needs. We work with people we like and on projects we like, so it’s a good experience on both sides and results in a positive outcome. So positive in fact that ninety percent of our work comes from referrals, which makes us very proud. Our creative and innovative way of thinking has resulted in a track record of fantastic clients.

We believe in building long-standing relationships with our clients and have created positive results in every business we have worked with. Here’s some examples of work we’ve achieved across our service lines with our clients.
Open Doors are a marketing and advertising company, based in London, who wanted initial support to align their employment contracts. Our initial piece of work enabled us to demonstrate the value in our services and Open Doors were one of You HR’s first clients to sign up to our retained services.
“You HR were fantastic in proactively responding to whatever HR issue we presented to them and we are grateful for their continued to support to our rapidly developing business that now provides support for people to reach their full potential through data science research and training. You HR certainly assisted us in setting our great foundations to build from.” Maurice Flynn, Co-Founder
FINSA Europe are a rapidly growing financial provider, trading in more than 93 countries worldwide, who had no established HR function in place. You HR were commissioned to provide a retained HR service to focus on Organisational Design, good HR governance and enhancing best practice people management.
“You HR provide fantastic support and clear and concise answers to the questions we raise, increasing the confidence in our decision-making process. Their knowledge and professional staff provide an informative and friendly service which leaves us very satisfied.” Stuart Lane, CEO, Finsa Europe Ltd.
One piece of work we have completed for the NHS was to manage a large-scale, complex organisational change programme, transitioning 2 organisations into 15 organisations through TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment) and other legislative means (COSOP – Cabinet Office Statement of Practice). We managed various consecutive consultation phases and designed outplacement programmes and support for all staff. Managers were trained to take ownership and lead the change process. We also managed the overall redundancy programme. This maximised opportunities to redeploy staff and successfully transferred relevant staff to their new roles. Our overall approach was praised by the Chair and Executives of the organisations, and gained excellent recognition for being a ‘good practice’ operation by external auditors.
Aston & James are Oxfordshire’s leading supplier of workplace products and solutions. As a family run business, employee engagement and workplace culture were key areas of focus for You HR to maintain when reviewing their current HR. We have advanced their people management and HR best practice, ensuring that employee’s have regular performance reviews and that systems, policies and processes are in place for staff and managers to access. We are embarking on a journey to focus on people strategies aligning to business plans and organisational goals, alongside innovative ways that we can jointly promote enhancing workplace wellbeing.
A true partnership is a two-way process— ideas and information flow openly and regularly, based on a foundation of mutual trust and respect for one another’s expertise — all our clients embrace this philosophy. Some of our clients look to us to help with shorter project work and they say:
Psychosynthesis Trust are the longest established psychosynthesis centre in the UK. They are an incredible charity organisation who train councillors and psychotherapists, alongside offering personal development courses to people exploring their psychospiritual development. We have been working with the Trust on our Pay As You GO (PAYG) service offering, delivering an in-depth HR Audit to identify their HR requirements and make recommendations to build into their future business strategy.
We were commissioned by Coronet Bingo, a 3 generation family run club, to provide a bespoke People Management Programme for their managers, accredited by the ILM. The programme consisted of four core modules (resourcing, optimising performance, managing change, and equality and diversity).
“Coaching was provided to delegates alongside attendance to programme modules, both of which developed managers to improve their people management skills from a well delivered piece of work.” Laurie Carpenter, Manager
Vision XS are the ‘experience specialists’ that offer standard and tailored solutions in the leisure industry. They needed assistance with a series of imminent changes they wanted to introduce.
“You HR were able to swiftly respond to our need and resolve everything, we really appreciated their support.” Tony Sefton, Founder
Hounslow and Richmond Community Healthcare were looking to enhance their workplace wellbeing for staff. You HR built a bespoke programme to train more than 50 managers in new ways to improve wellbeing in the workplace, aligned to the organisations policy, process and strategy.
“The programme was a great success and delivered both professionally and personally, we were really pleased with the results.” Alison Smith, Assistant Director of HR and OD
