Affinity Members

We help our Affinity members work with our NETPark NET community. Here’s to the greater good.

The HR Dept

People can carry significant risk and ever-changing employment law can be a minefield for businesses.  They can also be your biggest asset and you want to maximise their potential.  You need access to reliable HR advice and pragmatic solutions that you can act on.  However, few businesses can afford a full time HR professional or HR department.  

The HR Dept provides you with local, personal and professional HR services with up-to-date expertise whenever you require it, without breaking the bank. We provide continual year-round support and have vast knowledge and experience of HR issues across all types of business.
