Cherington HR Ltd. is currently celebrating its 12th anniversary. It was founded in the spring of 2006 to provide high-class HR support to employers in the three counties locally. Since then, not only has it provided help and support to businesses in Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire, but others nationally as far afield as Edinburgh, Southampton, London and Swansea – with the occasional foray into Eire.
During that time, Cherington HR has been a finalist on three occasions for the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce Awards including those for Excellence in both the customer service and professional services categories. As well as helping some local employers take on their very first employees, it has undertaken work for some very well-known national companies. These include the NEC, the Engineering Employers Federation (EEF), Random House publishing, fashion retail giant Bestseller UK, (known on the high street as Jack & Jones and Vero Mode); and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).
Based in Upton upon Severn and founded by Helen Astill, Cherington HR has supported 196 different clients over the last 12 years and dealt with a wide range of activities including: helping with recruitment; writing employment documents and policies; investigating and managing disciplinary and grievance cases; handling redundancy situations; providing training; and carrying out psychometric assessments for both recruitment and development purposes. At the moment the business is very busy dealing with GDPR compliance as the new data protection legislation comes into force, so it looks like business as usual for the foreseeable future.
Helen would like to take this opportunity say, “Thank you” to all of Cherington HR’s clients. “It has been a great pleasure working with them all, some of whom I have been working with for more than 10 years. I have enjoyed helping them solve their knotty people problems and look forward to continuing to do so.”
