Your Needs


To know that you have cover on the essentials of employment and HR is key for clients. Essentials makes sure we have a clear, bespoke contract of employment – delivered to the client specifications, a handbook covering all the essential policies a business needs and continuous phone and email support from a friendly, experienced and practical HR team.

You will have all the benefits of a complete package of employment documents from HR experts which will be designed to meet the needs of your business. Contract, employee handbook and all the HR policies. You will be able to call us and email us for practical and expert advice. You will have access to our document library of common employment letters and forms. The best element in this package is that an HR Consultant will be with you onsite should you need us in a meeting, taking notes, writing the letters and giving you the best advice possible.

Using secure IT systems, we completely “take over” your HR function – this means advising you, your managers and your employees, writing all your letters and contracts, keeping your employee and HR files securely with mutual access in a cloud-based “vault”. We will be onsite for all meetings with employees, helping you with notes and outcomes. We create links with your management team and support them, taking the burden away from one point of contact. You can phone us, email us, use the document library or meet with us. We also draft and send contracts, letters and forms directly to your employees on your behalf. We chase employees for those documents which your business needs to be legally compliant.
