Coppice HR are a great company to work with and I have used them on a number of different projects to ensure that we get the best possible advice to help and support all HR related matters. Paul has provided a professional service on time and always able to help to make sure that we are properly advised. All projects have been successfully completed and enabled me to move forward with my business. I would strongly recommend Coppice HR for any SME business owners who want to ensure that they are given the correct help and support.

Paul at Coppice HR is, in a word, fantastic! I reached out to him recently to set up contracts and policies for my Ltd company. Being new to hiring staff myself, it was incredibly valuable to have someone like Paul available, who could promptly put together everything I needed and answer any questions I had - all at a more than reasonable cost. Thanks Paul!

We contacted Coppice HR as our business had grown over recent years and our staff numbers had swelled. As part of a review into our HR needs we contact Paul at Coppice HR who undertook an assessment of our current needs and future needs. Paul has implemented a great plan going forward. He has undertaken interviews for staff recruitments in our crucial roles, created our contracts of employments, handbooks and been a crucial part of the assessments at work programme and employees reviews. Paul has also lead in HR training needs for managers. All of pour managers know who to contact should they have the need for HR. Coppice are our HR department without having our own. Paul and Coppice HR are a great HR solution, and also Paul is a lovely person.

I have used Coppice HR in two of the companies that I have worked for. I have found the services reasonable in price and the service offered has been exemplary. Paul is a consummate professional and he regularly goes above and beyond what he charges for. He has a wealth of experience in a range of industries, and is always on the end of a phone if I need his advice. I would wholeheartedly recommend Coppice HR's services

The HR agenda is becoming increasingly critical to all organisations:

When was the last time you reviewed your HR policies? An HR Health Check would ensure you are legally compliant and addressing best practice. 

The legal case debating the ‘gig’ economy and ‘zero-hour’ contract continues. Do you employ ‘contractors’ or ‘dependent contractors’ or actual ’employees’ in your business and how does it affect you?

The law requires you to give an employee a statement of employment on the very first day of starting work at your company. Does this happen in your business?
