Why Gerald Edelman?

Many of our clients face the need to outsource a portion of their HR responsibilities, normally due to a lack of internal time or resources. They know the importance of mitigating risks, engaging employees and driving organisational performance cannot be overlooked – and that’s where our partnership with NatWest Mentor can really make a difference.

Through Mentor, we’re able to source first-class HR consultancy services for our clients at a significantly reduced rate. The flexibility of the packages offered by Mentor also means that companies can tailor the level of support to match the needs of their business, whether that’s handling specific aspects of HR or employment law, or full coverage for their workforce.
