HR Solutions through to finals for two awards

Greg Guilford, CEO of HR Solutions

A Kettering HR firm is celebrating after being shortlisted for not one, but two business awards.

HR Solutions, which supplies outsourced HR services to businesses without their own HR departments, is through to the finals of the SME Northamptonshire Business Awards in the ‘Service Excellence’ and ‘Business of the Year Less Than 50’ categories.

The company, which employs 19 members of staff and provides HR services to more than 300 clients, was recognised by the judges for offering ‘outstanding assistance and advice’ to its customers and a ‘boldness and imagination’ that has resulted in exceptional business growth.

Greg Guilford, chief executive officer of HR Solutions, said: “Providing excellent customer service has really helped our organisation to grow. We started in 2001 with one client and have grown year on year through providing the very best service and HR advice possible. As we have grown, we have taken on staff and moved into offices that have grown with the business. Some of our clients have been with us since the beginning which tells us that we are doing something right. As we have grown, we have been careful to take on people who share our ethos of putting the client at the heart of everything we do.

“We’re delighted to be finalists for both the ‘Service Excellence’ and ‘Business of the Year Less than 50’ awards. Reaching the finals for two awards is a great endorsement by the impartial Northamptonshire businesses who formed the judging panel and we see it as a real measure of our success.”

The SME Northamptonshire Business Awards final takes place at the Mercure Daventry Court Hotel on Wednesday 25th October.

HR Solutions works with clients in a wide range of industries including the financial services, charitable, medical and hospitality sectors, offering HR health checks, bespoke documentation and handbooks, employment advice and more.
