What is Fractional HR?

Fractional HR is a way of getting temporary HR expertise at a cost you can afford.

More and more companies – particular SMEs – are taking on proportionate support to meet their needs. It is particularly prevalent within HR, whereby companies don’t need a full-time headcount but still need that strategic mindset. Having access to a strategic HR resource for a proportionate amount of time helps to ensure a scalable and sustainable solution, and is rapidly growing in popularity.

This cost-effective solution allows companies to access the HR capability they need, in a much more affordable way.

What is Interim HR support?

You may have a temporary need for HR support; perhaps a specific project that needs completing, or maybe you need an extra pair of hands. Unlike fractional HR support, which is a more retained solution, Interim HR support is more about completing an assignment or filling a gap (say, maternity) for certain a period of time.

Typical challenges you may have:

  • An urgent HR support need
  • A lack of specific HR experience or expertise
  • A need for specialist HR project capability
  • Capacity challenges (you need more help)
  • A peak of work to get through
  • You need to cover maternity or other forms of leave effectively and efficiently
  • You require strategic HR support, on a budget
  • A need for a scalable and sustainable solution, that can grow with your organisation

You will benefit

  • Support when you need it, quickly
  • Access to top HR professionals 
  • No unnecessary long-term commitment
  • Cost-effective support to help you budget clearly
  • A flexible approach that suits your needs
  • Focus on the areas you need it most
  • An objective approach to assessments and recommendations
