So let’s talk about money! Usually when we first work together it will be on a project basis, rather than a retained basis. You need a piece of work done and we say how much it will cost and what you will get for your hard earned cash. Projects come in many different forms from quick hits to in depth, long term developments as outlined on our services page.
We create a proposal for each project which you agree in writing. In most instances we split payments into three tranches, one on appointment, one on supply of first draft and one on completion.
Whether we are working on a project or on a retained basis we are always upfront about our fees and know we offer good value.
Like most of our clients as you get to know (and like!) us you might decide to retain us. The benefits of retaining us are:
PRIORITY Your query will always take priority over other ad hoc work – you get first dibs on our time!
FLEXIBILITY We have a two hour minimum but you can decide how many hours to retain us per month, we review the numbers of hours used over the first three months and adjust the hours accordingly
SPEED You can call us anytime and we will respond usually on the same day and always within 24 hours
VALUE Hours are used in 15min increments – so you get more for your money.
UNDERSTANDING We get to understand your objectives and business goals more fully and this then allows us to deliver not only a great level of service but practical, concise, HR solutions that work specifically in your business
We know that we give greater value to businesses that we have long term relationships with and strive to build lasting relationships based on trust and confidence.
