A bit about HR Dept

At The HR Dept Basingstoke and Hart we provide our clients with tailored HR management services that meet their needs and business objectives. As HR Professionals, our ethos is Preventing People Problems. Let us prevent yours.

The HR Dept is the UK's largest network of HR professionals providing outsourced HR support to local businesses. Your local office is HR Dept Basingstoke and Hart, owned and managed by Karen Sanders.

Employment law is complex - coping on your own brings significant risk. You don't want to break the law or face expensive tribunals but few businesses can afford a full time HR professional or HR department and coping on your own can not only be stressful but also bring significant risk to your business. The HR Dept Basingstoke & Hart can provide you with a cost effective, insured telephone advice line for all types of HR queries. The HR Dept offers an employment advice line for employers to call when an issue arises and they need a quick, clear answer to a problem. The advice line is also backed by tribunal indemnity insurance which means you can get in with running your business and not worrying about HR issues.

The HR Dept Basingstoke and Hart provides you with local, personal and professional HR services with up-to-date expertise whenever you require it without breaking the bank and in addition to the advice line service, The HR Dept specialises in the following services.

    I can't rate Karen highly enough. I've never met anyone so passionate and committed to their profession than her and that filters through to all the team who do a fantastic job. I am delighted to be recommending Karen and her team.

    I have worked in many corporations with large HR teams but Karen's team "trumps" them. Very very impressive - and fantastic value for money.

    I am an outsourced Finance Director who values Karen’s common sense, commercial advice offering solutions rather than issues. I have no hesitation in recommending Karen.

    Karen is so personable and excellent at her job! She brings laughter and fun to HR and she is a delight to work with. Trusting Karen's advise means you can really rely on her employment law knowledge, giving every client reassurance that they need. Karen is definitely a trusted partner and would certainly recommend her services.

    Karen is one of the best HR people that I have ever come across. Normally you get the dross of people sitting at their desks pushing pens. Karen is a great example of true strategic HR planning. She engages with managers to understand the requirements of people, training and succession planning and how to get the best out of staff. I have no hesitation in working with Karen or indeed recommending her to one of my own clients. 5 star rating

    Karen and her team at The HR Dept provide an outsourced HR service that feels much more like a permanent employed HR team. Karen has become an integral and essential part of our Management Team who is always available to support both me and my staff. She is extremely personable and professional and brings a real value-add to our company. I very much enjoy working with Karen as she brings a real energy and positive attitude and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to other organisations.

    Karen impressed me from the outset and has continued to deliver to a very high standard in everything she does. She takes the fear out of hiring and managing staff and is always on hand to answer questions, giving practical and honest advice. I really feel like she has my back and in business trust is critical. I have no hesitation recommending Karen.
