We offer bespoke long-term support and/or short-term solutions and project work covering everything from the fundamentals of HR and Employment Law to more complex project work which will let you focus on what you are best at – running your business.

Long Term Support

At STEP we believe it is important that we become your trusted advisors, and through a strong working relationship we will quickly gain a detailed knowledge of your business to understand the challenges you face. Our advice will be tailored to your needs so that your business runs efficiently and in compliance with regulations. We are committed to providing you with access to expertise and a quality service, and by working as part of your team, to understand your business, we will provide expert assistance when you want and need it.

Project Work

We also understand that sometimes you may only need support to guide you through a specific project. STEP HR is built on offering a flexible, affordable and commercial HR services, and so we can contribute with experience and competence to manage all of or just a part of an HR project. You may find you need support managing a difficult disciplinary processes or advice on how to conduct a redundancy process or TUPE transfer, or perhaps you just need someone to support you with maternity cover? Whatever your HR requirements, you can rest assured that by engaging with one of our HR advisors we will be working with you – for you!
