Michael Boyd owner of Boyd HR has experience working for large American Multinationals in different business sectors & enjoying the luxury of exposure to ‘leading-edge thinking & best practice’, However he wanted to offer small businesses the same human resource benefits that large multinational companies received from their in house HR department. Mindful that 90% of all people employed in the North West work in organisations of less than ten staff, he realised that the target clients could not justify having a dedicated HR Specialist.
