HR Consultancy

Human Resources (HR)

HLB France member firms realise it is not a business that succeeds, but the people within it.

Therefore, investing wisely and managing people effectively is vital to your success.

We will consciously offer our clients a bespoke approach. You can choose what services you need, as and when you need them. HR has no fixed formula and neither does your business. HLB France member firms pride themselves on their flexibility. Their proactive approach. We are here for you. To allow you to get on with your own business.

Employing people brings both opportunity and risk. Leaders of small, medium and large sized businesses tell us they are either:

  • Overwhelmed with the admin and fire-fighting involved
  • Worried about the risks of getting things wrong
  • Managing a French subsidiary from overseas and in need of local knowledge
  • Managing HR, but are not HR professionals
  • Distracted from growing their business
  • Struggling to get the best out of their team

HLB France member firms provide solutions to help you spend your time more productively on the growth of the company and the people within it.

Tailored services are built around a combination of the following:

The combination of a flexible, web based HR system backed by our expertise and a named contact give you complete peace of mind, including your recruitment handling and can also scale up to include Payroll and Accounting services.
