TimelessTime Monthly Newsletter

Many studies, and our own practical experience, tell us that getting HR and the ‘people ecosystem’ right in a firm adds tangible benefit.

TimelessTime believes in excellence in management of human resources and is engaged in a programme of tools and method development. The outputs from this can be immediately applied to the workplace to help drive your business forward. Since these tools showcase our competence as consultants, we are happy to let you have use of these tools and methods free of change.

email_atWe also believe in sharing information to keep you up-to-date with good management practices and employment law. We comment on both ensuring you know how both can benefit your business.

TimelessTime would like to keep you informed of these developments. We’d like to send you a monthly email to draw your attention to our work. The law in the UK demands that we ask you for your permission to receive such emails.

We hope you will feel the monthly update and the tools and methods are useful to your business. To allow us to send you an update each month please sign up.
