LONDON, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Peter Done, joint founder of BetFred and managing director of Peninsula Business Services will create 35 jobs by launching a new venture which will see legal experts visit companies to carry out dismissals, redundancies or disciplinary procedures on behalf of bosses who do not wish to conduct the HR processes themselves.
Peter Done said today, "Show me one person who enjoys firing someone, it's not enjoyable. I was receiving calls from business friends asking if I could send my legal team to perform jobs they did not want to face such as disciplining staff and I thought there must be a market for this. I called my managers at 11:30pm one evening, explained the idea and asked for their thoughts, within 24 hours we had a product and a name - hrface2face."
Done continues, "My brother Fred and I recruit some terrific people, but there are always people who aren't quite on the mark, so we don't carry passengers and neither should any business. It doesn't matter how many times you sack someone it's important that you follow watertight rules to ensure that there are no consequences at employment tribunal."
Peter Done comments on recruitment, "I'll employ 23 staff at our Manchester HQ, they will consist of legal specialists and sales staff. I'll then recruit 12 legal experts nationwide. You don't need to be a Peninsula client; I'll offer this service to any business at competitive prices. For the last 4 months I've trialled hrface2face to over 500 companies, the response has been great, I know there is a market for it, it's a no brainer."
Done concludes, "HR can be a nightmare - especially when you fire someone who is the nicest person but they are lousy at their job. Hrface2face will support bosses whether it's downsizing, disciplinary appeals, TUPE, redundancy consultation or providing personal support and advice.
"If you don't like undertaking difficult HR tasks then call me and I'll send someone in to professionally take care of it for you."
