More than half of the respondents to a recent survey of SME businesses throughout the UK indicated that they are set to recruit.
The survey was carried out by The HR Dept, a leading outsourced HR company with a local office in Kenilworth and found that 48 per cent of SME’s are looking to recruit in the next six months, signalling further confidence from the UK’s small businesses that economic growth is being maintained.
Tracey Hudson, director of The HR Dept (South Warwickshire) said: “We carry out our survey on an annual basis, and this year’s results indicate that most of our clients expect to grow their workforce. Demand for HR support is on the increase and we have secured a record number of new clients since the beginning of the year, many of whom have been referred by existing clients.
“It is essential that small businesses owners have access to high quality HR advice. I am passionate about helping small businesses in the area and ensuring that they are protected from costly tribunal claims.”
The HR Dept (South Warwickshire) offers advice on anything from contracts of employment and disciplinary and grievance procedures to absence management and redundancy procedures. More information about can be found at www.hrdept.co.uk/offices/midlands/south-warwickshire or call 0845 204 1122.
