The History of Quay HR

Quay HR Solutions was set up as a private limited Company and founded in March 2014 by Claire Hyde. Claire is passionate about helping other people and decided that she wanted to share her HR knowledge and experience with other businesses to help them get the best out of their people. Over the last three years, Quay HR Solutions has provided HR services to small and medium sized businesses in the Dorset area as well as further afield.

When Claire started the business, she began on her own but the demand quickly grew for her HR services and clients came back with further HR needs. The business grew through word-of-mouth recommendations and referrals. Positive client testimonials supported this growth and the Company quickly built up a good reputation.

The Company expanded its service offering to include providing support to individual clients as well as businesses. It became clear, due to an increasing number of personal enquiries, that there was a need to provide advice and guidance to individuals either prior to employment commencing, or to support individuals whilst employed.

In July 2016, the demand for HR services increased to such an extent that Claire took the decision to expand the business and recruited two employees, Shelley Poole, HR Consultant and James Burridge, HR Administrator. At this time, the business also moved into new premises at the Lynch Lane Offices based in Weymouth. This allowed Claire and the Quay HR Team to support clients in a confidential setting either away from their workplace or from their own business premises if required.

Claire attributes her business success to the fantastic Quay HR Team who stay true to the values of the business namely; client focus, quality, organisational excellence, professionalism and partnership. The Quay HR Team works hard to ensure that the HR solutions offered to clients are competitively priced and tailored to meet their specific needs.
