HR³ Employment Law Retainer

As an employer, keeping up with the practical impact of legislation on your organisation is time consuming and a distraction from your real aim – running a successful business.  But getting it wrong can be extremely damaging – in terms of financial cost – and the reputation of your business.

So Napthens created a package of essential services for employers incorporating employment law advice through a fixed cost, annual retainer, hands-on HR support when you need it and a full health & safety service offering.  But this is not a traditional legal retainer – we aren’t there just to tackle the problems. Our philosophy is all about empowering employers so you can manage, develop and inspire your employees to be the best they can be.  To do that we have developed our own HR3 community.

Crucially, services are tailored to the size and specific needs of your business.  In fact, our Level 1 service can be taken up on a month by month basis – no long-term commitments.

Be part of our HR³ community

We’re on a journey with our clients as we celebrate 10 years of HR³ in 2020 with over 300 employers now part of our HR³ community.  We’ve developed from a traditional legal retained service to a membership model because we recognise the benefits of HR³ aren’t just about the legal support we provide but about talking to each other and sharing experiences through our network.

Our Level 1 membership includes more benefits than ever – including access to the HR³ iToolkit. This online resource gives subscribers 24 hour access to guides and fact-sheets, handbook, precedent documents and letters.  Members also enjoy regular updates including a monthly Q&A session, monthly pre-recorded seminars along with ad hoc podcasts plus access to the HR³ Facebook community.

Since signing up for the People Projects service from Napthens, the whole experience has been great. Working closely with our named consultant we have initiated a number of projects which I am confident will help our business support and develop our people, and ultimately drive the profitability of the business.
