Who We Are

The HR Doc Shop™ is an online service designed for small business owners who want professionally drafted HR documents and templates available for instant download. Created and are managed by qualified HR Professionals and Consultants, we understand what small business owners need. We were built on the foundations of seventeen years’ experience in business, across the varied sectors of private; public; not for profit; and professional consultancy services.

We are waiting to help you and your team access HR documents right now.

Who We Are Not

We are not a legal practice, lawyer or solicitor providing legal/professional advice.

What We Do

At the HR Doc Shop ™ it is our mission to fill in the resource gap for small businesses who do not have in-house HR staff to draft documents for them. We save small business owners time and money by providing them with customisable ready to edit documents and templates for instant download that they can use in their business straight away.

By providing flexible purchase solutions for small business owners, we make it just as easy for them to access a single letter for the one-off employee query; or to access all our documents at once. Understanding the importance of branding to all business owners, we have designed our products so all templates are customisable and ready to edit, making it easy for you print on your own stationary once you are ready.

We remove the fear of HR for small business owners by simplifying the confusing world of HR.

What we do not do

We do not ask you to sign up to a recurring retainer or an annual contract. We do not provide and/or display documents and/or information as legal advice or information. Our website, resources and products are for your guidance in general situations only and professional and/or legal advice should be sought before use for a specific matter in your business.

Why We Do It

We honestly do believe good HR delivers real results for businesses and we are passionate about providing small businesses with access to professionally drafted HR templates regardless of their size.

Having worked with small business owners for years we understand and appreciate that sometimes you have too much on your plate and HR is often put on the bottom of the to do list. But when it rises to the top of the list we know that business owners want that job done NOW, so our ready to edit templates means that letter can move off “your to do list” to the post tray/ outbox as quick as you want.

We believe our customers deserve the best and strive to deliver excellent customer care in all that we do. Business owners want flexibility, they want to be able to get as much or as little help as they need at any time and we get that. We know some of our customers, just want access to one letter template on that day – and we are happy to provide that option. Other business owners want the full suite of templates all at once – and we can gladly provide that too. We believe businesses come in all shapes and sizes and so should HR resources.

We like to help HR is our thing, let us do “our thing” so you can do “ your thing” 
