HR Dept Newcastle is planning for expansion after a surge in companies outsourcing their human resources requirements led to a number of client wins.
Established by Jayne Hart in 2014, HR Dept Newcastle is part of a national franchise, which provides HR, employment law and health and safety support to SMEs.
This year Jayne has taken on four permanent employees and is on track to double headcount by 2021.
The business has experienced increased demand over the last 12 months, with a 55 per cent increase in outsourcing by companies in tech, creative, digital and manufacturing sectors across the region.
Director of HR Dept Newcastle, Jayne said: “We had a very strong start to the year and we are ambitious in our growth plans. We are seeing an increased demand for our services from the region’s scale up and growth businesses.
We ensure they have the foundations of good legal and practical people practices in place that will complement and support their growth.
“We offer a flexible and affordable outsourced employment solution providing support on a full range of HR issues.
“Putting our clients at the heart of our business and offering a bespoke solution, is how we attract and retain them.”
Non-executive director, Neil Stephenson, added: “I have known Jayne for a number of years, and I trust the team at The HR Dept to provide no-nonsense advice.
“I know that I can rely on the company for practical advice that is compliant and mitigates risk but is also commercially sound.”
