Expert HR that enables you to fulfil your goals

  • Just like an in-house team

  • Your HR needs anticipated

  • Accountable and results driven

  • Fixed costs make us cost-effective

You need to fulfil day-to-day HR functions – and you’d probably like to grow your business or just make it the best that it can be by hiring and retaining talented, motivated people.

Our Retained HR service works like an ‘in-house’ HR department – but with more focus and without the complexities. We bring 200+ (!) years of expertise, a fresh perspective and a results-driven focus – for a fixed cost, making us much more cost-effective than paying per project.

The benefits in full

In partnership with you, we develop a plan for the whole year and ‘slot’ into your business just as an in-house team would, helping you with both the day-to-day HR challenges and compliances and the bigger picture.

But you have none of the complexities of hiring an in-house team and don’t need to divert resources away from leadership. In addition, because we are ‘external’, we can provide that fresh perspective in which solutions are so often found.

We will work with you in a hands-on way, giving you peace of mind knowing that you are fully compliant and can handle any HR issue that crops up.

Our Retained HR service includes a dedicated day of consultancy each month so that we can help you grow and refine your business, hire the people you want and create the culture that will realise your vision and ensure you don’t lose sight of the bigger picture.

Between us, the MAD-HR team have a whopping 200+ years of HR experience!

Not only are there not many HR challenges we haven’t come across before, but it is likely that between us we will have proven success in whatever HR projects you need us for on any given month.

We will tailor our expertise to you, ensuring that the best expert from our team is dedicated to your business.

The MAD in MAD-HR stands for Make A Difference.

Wanting to make a tangible, noticeable difference to every business we work with is at the heart of everything we do.

HR isn’t just about problem-solving or ‘putting out fires’. Done right, HR can steer your organisation in the direction you want to go in.

We not only aim to anticipate your needs and challenges before they arise, we want to help you recruit and retain the best people, keeping them motivated and creating the culture that will make your vision a reality.

We will plan an entire year ahead with you, ensuring that we stay accountable and focused.

If you had the confidence of knowing that you had a full team of HR experts backing you, what would you do differently?

We will ensure that you are always fully compliant, one step ahead of changes to the law which could affect you and fully equipped to deal with any people problems (or opportunities) as they arise.

You can sleep easy enjoying the total reassurance that comes with having a dedicated HR team who are fully invested in your success.

"Our team is packed with expert consultants with real-life experience working in organisations like yours.
