HR eStore iconOr Why not look at our HR e-Toolkit:  Redundancies and Managing Change within our HR e-Store.

The HR e-Store was developed from feedback  given by SMEs who asked if I could simply provide tried and tested HR tools with easy to follow guides.  A kit that they could simply implement into their business themselves.
