A SOUTH Tyneside business has the right resources to scoop a top national award.

The HR Dept South Tyneside, Newcastle and Gateshead, based at Tedco Business Works, in Henry Robson Way, South Shields, is part of an expanding network of offices throughout the UK and Ireland, offering specialist human resources advice to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The company has been shortlisted in the Category of the Year in the Personnel Awards 2014, organized by the UK’s leading free-access HR website.

This category recognizes the achievements of HR consultants and consultancies who have demonstrated a positive and measurable impact on projects in which they have collaborated with their clients.

Jayne Hart, 44, a mum-of-two, joined the HR franchise earlier this year, launching the South Shields company base.

Mrs Hart said: “We prize our relationships with our clients above all else, so being recognized for the way we work is fantastic news.

“We are having an amazing year so far and, with businesses increasingly looking to work with HR partners, leaving them free to grow their own businesses, we can only see this going from strength to strength.”

Judging for the awards has been based on both results and testimonials from clients.

The awards will be presented at a prestigious dinner to be held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, on November 18.

The HR Dept network, which provides employment advice and support to SMEs across the UK and Ireland, has launched 10 new offices in the current financial year alone.

Company founder and managing director Sue Tumelty said: “I am incredibly proud of our team and the business that the HR Dept has become.”

The South Tyneside branch of the company provides a local and personal service on a wide range of business matters, including the latest employment law.
