ourHRpeople is the professional HR franchise for senior HR Managers and Directors who wish to transition from an employed role into running their own business. Our Partners are in business for themselves, but not by themselves. We a growing an amazing collaborative network of HR professionals providing outsourced HR to businesses, charities and the public sector in the UK.
ourHRpeople clients expect their advisors to be solution centred, and you will not be surprised to note that we have this covered; redundancy programmes, restructuring, TUPE, senior level exits, organisational design and reward management are just some of the aspects our development tools cover. We sometimes become our client’s outsourced HR department, offering everything a HR department would provide. Services our client’s businesses benefit from include employment contracts, handbooks and policies, payroll, pension set up, advice on diverse topics such as psychometrics in recruitment and team building, disciplinaries, grievances, restructures and company mergers.
Stephen Wright (Chartered FCIPD, LLM, MSc, Dip.Tmgt) and Alix Passey Brown (Chartered FCIPD, MA, MSc, DPM), founded ourHRpeople in 2019, with the aim offering senior HR professionals the opportunities their successful businesses have had given each of them; improved income, no office politics, no commute and a much better work/life balance. They know how HR consultancy works having done it over 20 years, and using their business knowledge, resource library and experience, ourHRpeople can assist you to have the confidence to do the same.
As a Partner you will achieve an outstanding and faster ROI than going it alone. There are no additional costs for websites, design, brand development, artwork, marketing systems, PR launches, social media, our extensive HR Library, bookkeeping or initial accountancy advice. Time and money are not wasted spent trying out unproven methods and ineffective growth strategies.
A further key benefit is 24/7 access to the Directors for business development coaching and case conferences.

Daily Life of a Franchisee
Our Area Development Partners work with a range of different clients, SMEs, global corporates, third sector and the public sector, and it is precisely that diversity that many of our business owners enjoy most about having their own ourHRpeople business. Being willing to learn and push the comfort zone is all part of HR consultancy. We are here to watch your back, and you’re never truly on your own. As our territories are local to our Partners, this eliminates the need for long commutes. Being local and personal to the local businesses we work with, enables our Partners to be visible within their local business community as they build awareness of their business. You are not restricted to just local clients as many of your personal network will be nationally based. Our Partners tend to start their business working from home but once they start to employ professional employees, they may look to take on an office space.
