By Nick Batten on 12 April, 2023

Leading HR consultancy, the HR Dept, has been shortlisted for a national SME of the Year award, part of the Great British Awards Business & Community.

Based in Swindon, the HR Dept is one of 20 businesses to reach the final, having been among three to automatically qualify after coming top in the South West regional heats. The overall winner will be announced at a ceremony on 21st April in Reading.

The HR Dept Swindon was created in 2007, and is part of a larger HR Dept team that also provides HR services in Somerset and London, as well as North Wiltshire and East Cotswolds. Across the group, the team has grown to 17-strong, based in offices in Swindon and Taunton, and in the last 12 months alone the size of the Swindon team has doubled.

Peter Jones, Managing Director of The HR Dept, said, “It’s a real honour to have reached the national finals of such a hotly contested category as SME of the year. We have a very hardworking team, and this success is down to them and the exceptional level of service they provide. 

“We are currently recruiting as our business grows and we continue to innovate, offering our clients comprehensive HR support, but at a fraction of the cost of employing an in-house HR team.”

The HR Dept supports clients in a range of sectors, including manufacturing, hospitality, finance, retail, leisure and professional services.
