The principle behind AB Commercial HR Solutions is that whilst many Companies are too small to have an established HR function, the business still needs HR Manager support but on an “ad hoc” basis. Similarly, there are busineses who have an HR presence but, for whatever reason, they may need additional support to manage peaks of workload or more complex issues.
