BackupHR are a small, family owned business that operates primarily in East Anglia, London and the South East. We have been trading for more than 10 years, whilst our sister company MT Select (motor trade recruitment specialists) have been operating for over 40 years. Both companies form part of MTS Management Services Ltd.
Both our Consultants have Masters Degree in Employment Law, extensive experience of working within industry and HR consultancy, and many years of practical, commercial experience of working in Human Resource Management and Employment Law.
We provide HR expertise primarily to small and medium sized organisations, and we pride ourselves on the fact that we have a high level of client retention, which reflects the flexible and high quality service we provide to our clients. Our core business values are our knowledge and our integrity. We also have a growing reputation for the delivery of excellent people management training.
Our client base spreads over all three employment sectors, ranging from manufacturing, engineering, construction, through to retail, hotel and catering, on to the care sector, charities, Dioceses and education.
We are not an insurance based HR provider, as we find this can lead to very low risk advice being given which isn’t always the best option for the client, either time-wise, financially or both. We pride ourselves on providing business solutions to HR problems for our clients, by asking them what they ultimately want to achieve, and providing them with a number of possible solutions, together with highlighting any potential risks that this course of action might entail.
Whilst we can never say never, none of our clients, to date, have ended up in tribunal because of the advice that we have provided. However, employees can be unpredictable, but it is always our intention that the advice we provide will endeavour to reduce the threat of Tribunal action. Having said that, our Senior HR Consultant is an experienced Tribunal advocate, so in the unlikely event that you were facing a Tribunal, we can continue to support your needs if you wished.
