    Daily management of staff can prove time consuming and our HR advisors are available to help you deal with matters such as handing staff lateness, the legal considerations of long-term or regular sick leave, managing annual leave, employee disputes or any other staff issues.

    Kent HR provides a range of options available to suit your business requirements and objectives, whether you need support with a one-off HR project or whether you would like the peace of mind of having an HR expert available as and when you require.

  • The service was very professional and essential to the successful outcome for our company. Veronica grasped the complexities of the situation quickly and provided excellent support.

    Coleman Parkes Research Ltd
  • We have been using Kent HR services for almost a year and have found them to be extremely professional. Previously we were using another company who unfortunately were unable to provide accurate legal advice and in a less timely manner. GASE will continue to use Kent HR for all HR related matters.

    GASE Engineering Ltd
  • A no nonsense professional service, which was instrumental in helping to resolve a difficult HR case to the satisfaction of all parties, at reasonable cost to the employer. A follow on review of our HR processes resulted in the complete re-writing our internal staff handbook, to clarify and update the HR process to comply with all recent legislation.

    Satisfied Client
  • Kent HR provide an outstanding service; their whole team proved to be extremely knowledgeable, professional, responsive and compassionate. 

    They acted as genuine partners rather than simply a service provider and their help and guidance with HR structures and processes will continue to shape and inform our company policy long into the future.

  • I used Kent HR to fill a gap after our Head of HR left. The service Veronica delivered was fantastic – flexible, responsive and with very good advice. I was particularly pleased with how rapidly she got up to speed with our business and understood our particular needs.
