Human Resources expert Simon Morgan has taken on a new colleague and moved into new offices as he celebrates a decade since setting up his own business.
To mark the occasion, Simon was joined at a recent celebration by some of his long-standing clients at which he thanked them for their historic and ongoing support.
Simon set up The HR Dept South East London and North Kent in September 2007, to provide high quality yet affordable outsourced HR advice and support to SMEs in the area.
The move to set up on his own came after 30 years working in corporate HR, in various private sector roles heading up HR and training departments.
Now, after a successful decade running his own HR business, he has established a client base of 50 local firms.
Half of those clients have been with him for over five years and five of the businesses he works with have been using his services for almost the full decade. High profile clients include the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, Bird College of Performing Arts in Sidcup and mobile crane firm Bronzeshield Lifting, in Crayford.
With his sights set on further business growth, Mr Morgan has moved to new offices in Basepoint Dartford in Dartford Business Park and has appointed John Quigley, an experienced employment lawyer and qualified HR professional, to help him grow the business further.
Mr Morgan said: “It is great to have John on board. The size of my client base now is making things rather busy so having John’s expertise will help manage my current workload and also help us plan for future expansion.”
