What is in the HR Document Portal?

Our HR Document Portal is packed with practical tools to ensure your organisation’s policies and procedures remain current and compliant.

From letter templates to forms and step-by-step guidance covering all areas of people management, our portal is designed to guide you safely and confidently through processes. Additionally, we offer examples of completed letter templates, providing clarity on the level of detail required. Basically, we’ve got you covered!

I have access to the Portal, but I am confused about what I need.

Don’t worry, we understand that navigating through various HR documents can be overwhelming. Our team of experts is here to help! We offer a complimentary introduction call where we’ll guide you through the Portal and take the time to understand your specific needs. This ensures that you have everything in place to meet your requirements effectively.

What do I do if I access the HR Document Portal and can’t see the information I need?

If you access the HR Document Portal and can’t find the information you need, don’t worry. We continuously update the Portal with new templates and guidance. Simply let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll promptly provide you with the necessary information.

Do any of the packages include access to an HR System?

While none of our packages include access to an HR System by default, we strongly advise all small businesses to implement one. An HR system provides a secure, data protection-compliant space for employee files and offers numerous benefits. Through our partnership with Breathe HR, we can secure a discounted, low-cost rate for you, which can be added to your subscription upon request.

How do I get the documents I need from the Portal?

All of the documents are downloadable and customizable. In fact, you can also print off or download the webpages as they are packed with useful information and flow charts to help you navigate processes. 

I have access to this package, but I need additional support – what do I do?

If you find that you need additional support beyond your current package, you have two options. You can upgrade to the THR Premium package, which includes extra support features. Alternatively, we can offer you ad hoc support at a discounted hourly rate (see pricing plan in the FAQs). This support can be provided virtually or on-site.

For arranging training or assistance with a project, simply contact us, and we’ll offer you a discounted day rate tailored to your requirements.

I don’t want to subscribe for a year, what can you offer?

We have called it a subscription, but really it is a one-off payment for 12 months’ worth of access. As not everyone can make a one-off payment, we decided to offer a monthly payment option as an alternative – we take the first payment as you sign up and will set up a direct debit for the remaining payments. Our aim in developing the HR Document Portal was to keep costs as low as possible for small business owners, considering the value it provides. With detailed resources including a Staff Handbook and Contracts of Employment, the one-time payment offers exceptional value, ensuring access to the Portal for 12 months along with regular updates—an essential aspect when legislation changes occur.

What happens if I want to cancel?

 If you wish to cancel your subscription, you have a cooling-off period of 7 calendar days from the date of subscribing. Simply contact us in writing by emailing Please note that if you download any material during this period, cancellation may not be possible.

If you decide to end your access to the Portal after the initial 12-month period, please inform us at least 30 days beforehand to prevent automatic renewal. You can find our full terms and conditions on our website.
