When Jerome Forde built HR Duo, he recruited experts from HR and from software development and gave life to a dream – a technology platform that empowers SME owners and managers. A platform that automates the day-to-day HR practices and places critical data in the hands of managers. A platform that delivers an expert HR team to the SME owner – on-demand, whenever needed.
Initially, we stayed small. Operating under the radar. Building the team. Getting clients. Understanding their needs. Being there for them. Managing their HR in Ireland, in the UK, in Malaysia, the USA and Australia – wherever they operate. And all from our office in Dunshaughlin, Co. Meath. And now we are ready to grow, to spread the message, to help SMEs grow and scale, to help them grow the world beating teams and to be right there with them – to be their HR department.
Now we are leading the next wave of efficiency-increasing tools for SMEs, whether they are born digital or seeking to digitally transform. We know from long experience that HR needs technology. We know that HR needs innovation and innovative solutions. We know that there are lots of software options available. We also know that people-based challenges need people-based solutions. That true innovation comes from the integration of technology and people. In other words, it’s not either, it’s both – together in one platform.
The HR Duo formula is simple. Hire great people and let the technology enable great service delivery. Deliver great value and outstanding service and let the work speak for itself. That way, there’s no need for long contract terms or long term commitments from clients.
