Does this sound like the kind of HR Support Package that you’re looking for?

“Alison I’ve referred you to my neighbour who runs a business with 23 sites across Lancashire. I think she’s with a big-ish HR provider and not happy.  I just told her that Metis HR costs were fair, you were local, had worked at ‘the coal face’ previously as opposed to only in an advisory capacity, the advice has always been good and you’ve managed to resolve quite a few sticky issues for us”.

What’s a Metis HR support package like?

Metis is the Greek Goddess of Wisdom and Good Counsel. That’s what we give to our clients, wisdom and good counsel. We use our knowledge and experience to give you the best advice and support we can. We

  • put the interests of our clients first, above the interests of Metis HR and Metis HR employees.
  • look after your people issues and if they were our own. 
  • give advice that’s in your best interests, not our best interests

Our business grows through client referrals. We’ve not lost a single client in ten years because they’ve disliked the advice that we’ve given or the support we’ve provided.

Metis HR’s tailor-made solution for you will include:

  • A qualified HR Consultant to work with you to help you solve your people problems in a way that suits your business
  • A guarantee that we’ll never take more than a working day to respond to your call or email. In most cases we get back to you within the hour.
  • A lot of questions! Not because we’re nosey, but the more we know about your issue, the more honest you are with us, the better our advice to you will be.
  • Hopefully, a long term relationship that will allow us to take some weight off your shoulders and give you some time back to run your business.
