Samantha Dyson is Managing Director at Key Education Services Ltd, an independent supply teaching agency, and was looking for a service that provided watertight HR policies and much more at the start of her HR journey.

Like many of our customers, Samantha realised she needed some HR support when she went to hire a new member of staff and wasn’t sure what process to follow. She decided to go looking for an HR service that could help.

“The service is brilliant – so simple and straightforward.”

Here’s Samantha: “I needed to put all the employee documents together for the new starter but wasn’t sure what to include or how to go about it.

“I Googled ‘HR service for small businesses’ and a few different options came up. The first company I looked into was quite expensive and just seemed to offer a blanket service that wasn’t tailored to each business.

“I was keen for a more personal touch, which citrus HR appeared to offer. I also found their website really user-friendly, and the pricing was competitive. I liked how the price is scaled according to how many employees your business has.”

No more compliance worries

“The software is really well laid-out and easy to navigate. I didn’t have any employment policies in place before joining citrusHR, and now they’re definitely one of the software features I find most helpful.

Having them as part of the package has saved me a lot of time and gives me peace of mind that I’m being compliant.

The induction checklist, Health & Safety presentation, policies and DSE checklist are also really useful tools.”

A bespoke approach to HR

“Whenever I get in touch with the citrusHR consultants, their advice is always personalised to my business and their responses are always prompt.

“Even if I don’t get an answer straight away, they’ll keep me in the loop via email until they’re able to sort my problem out. This way, I never feel like I’m being kept in the dark.

“I also think the citrusHR newsletters are a useful resource to get more information and advice on certain areas of HR.

“The service is brilliant – so simple and straightforward. There’s always someone on hand to clarify an issue for me, and to answer any questions I have.”
