For every business, the demands and legal requirements of being an employer can take you away from what you do best and from the very reason that you went into business. It doesn’t have to be that way. VIRTUAL HR understands what is needed and will provide a reliable and straightforward range of services to ensure you can focus on your business with the peace of mind that we’ve got you covered.
Every employer we speak to wishes they had more hours in the day - to get on with what they do best and to improve their work-life balance. Having Virtual HR with you, just when you need us, gives you a pair of hands with the know-how to deal with the myriad of paperwork you face. From up-to-date contracts and employment handbooks to advice and hands-on support, delivered with a transparent and friendly level of service that is truly designed around your business needs.
VIRTUAL HR strives to provide the best service possible and our clients’ feedback means a great deal to us. Here’s what our Clients say about us.
As a business owner, I was doing all the HR-related items and other tasks, but it became unmanageable. Bringing Anna on board was the best decision I ever made. She got my company up to speed with the latest legislation and trained my staff and me on the proper employment guidelines and policies. Our contracts, policies and procedures are up-to-date, relevant, and easy to understand. I am now confident we have what we need in place to protect our business and our team. HR is a complex area, and why I tried to do it myself, I will never know, Virtual HR is the only way to go. I would recommend them to any business.
Anna Norton has been engaged by our office on an interesting range of HR-related matters. Her responsiveness and pragmatic, practical approach served us well resulting in good outcomes overcoming some unique challenges. Having such support available to management on an ongoing basis when needed provides necessary resilience to our small office and is highly valued.
We have continued to engage with Anna and the VHR team on both oversight, strategy and ad hoc services. This has enabled us to work with Anna as a knowledgeable service partner and quickly and simply access solutions and support for a variety of needs. I would recommend this service for any business requiring professional guidance and a partner who can bring consistent value.
Anna has been a huge support and provided excellent, consistent HR advice since coming on board with us. She has delivered high quality work very quickly which has enabled us to make some big steps forward with our HR procedures, as well as giving advice that has been both professional and very helpful. I have really enjoyed getting to know Anna and working with her and would commend her to others who need a professional, reasonably priced and effective outsourced HR service.
Chief Operating Officer
Following Anna undertaking a full review and new operational implementations of our HR platform, I am confident that our HR processes are a solid part of our corporate foundations and will support our continued growth. Anna is skilled within her field possessing excellent communication skills, she is a consummate professional who has a proven track record of delivery. My board and I have no hesitation in recommending Anna and VHR to any business that needs a HR solution.
We engaged Virtual HR to bring our HR documentation up to date and compliant with current laws, regulations and best practice. We were able to achieve those objectives and are now confident of our HR compliance going forward without the need to recruit a full time HR professional. In addition, Virtual HR helped us develop our HR policies and procedures in accordance with our corporate culture.
Anna delivered a one-to-one training session with me to further develop my knowledge. I found the session really useful and interesting. It’s really well planned out, so you are able to take on all the information without getting confused. I can’t believe how much I have learnt in such a short period of time! The session was great and has given me so much knowledge and confidence.
We engaged VHR to undertake a periodic compliance review of our HR documentation. Such processes can be daunting, but Anna’s commercial and dynamic approach helped us take the right decisions in a process that was positive, educational and beneficial for our treasured culture. A real breath of fresh air!
Anna is driven to deliver the best customer service experience, something she understands well from her previous experience in owning and running two successful businesses. Throughout that time and following further years of providing dedicated HR services across many sectors of business in Jersey, Anna has built a reputation based on reliability, trust and excellence of delivery that is now available as an affordable, high quality solution to help employers navigate through the complicated and often challenging employee-related matters, saving time, money and stress, freeing up employers to focus on the profit-making areas of their business.
With a background in operational management and business, and qualified in Human Resources Management, Anna wants VIRTUAL HR to be the on-call HR team you need, to advise you, to fulfil your legal requirements as an employer, minimise your risks and to have your back.
Anna’s professionalism, work ethic and understanding of her clients are second to none.
Operations Director at EYECAN
For those managing a small busy office, it can be difficult to justify having full-time human resources staff in-house. Having someone like Anna available to us on an as-needed basis was invaluable to advise and challenge management to help us make the right decisions and create the right HR environment for our team. Anna's deep insight and experience, empathetic nature, and practical outlook served us well.
Principal Ombudsman & Chief Executive at Channel Islands Financial Ombudsman (CIFO)
I have worked with Anna for several years and have found her always extremely helpful with sound, clear and understandable advice on any HR issues. Anna always takes the time to talk through different scenarios and possibilities; she ensures that as employer you remain within the letter of the law whilst understanding the challenges different sectors and roles bring with them. Anna thinks “with” you rather than “for” you, to allow you to come to the best solution for your company. Any (template) documents provided were done so in a timely manner and I have found them to be professional and precise.
