Find out about me, my story, and why exists


I'm Darryl, a Chartered HR professional with over 25 years of experience in diverse sectors and global organisations. I have a passion for helping businesses like yours succeed by providing effective HR solutions.

My experiences as a senior HR leader highlighted the recurring need for compliant HR documents and templates to streamline HR processes; Relying solely on expensive legal advice proved to be impractical, often resulting in delays and excessive costs, and drafting them myself was also a time-heavy task!

So, my decision to start an online HR templates business in 2009 was borne from a desire to empower other businesses to navigate HR challenges with confidence and efficiency, and ultimately, contribute to their success and growth. By establishing an online HR templates service, I aimed to provide businesses with instant access to a comprehensive library of customisable templates and resources, eliminating the need for costly legal interventions.

Compliance and Convenience

Recognising the ever-changing nature of HR regulations and the need for timely updates, we ensure that our platform remains constantly updated with the latest legal requirements and best practices. This ensures that businesses can stay compliant and adapt to changes in regulations without paying for expensive legal advice or having to do extensive research / drafting.

In addition to cost savings and accessibility, our online HR templates service also offers convenience and flexibility. With 24-hour availability and instant access from any device, businesses can efficiently address their HR needs at any time and from anywhere, without being constrained by traditional office hours or geographical limitations.
