Resources

Pet&r offers a wide range of HR and training services but we are conscious that sometimes all someone wants is some practical and simple advice on particular areas which they can refer to when required. To this end we have developed the Practical Simplicity Guide to... series of resources. These are available to purchase as PDF downloads, which you can save to your computer, and cover a wide range of topics such as starting your own business, policy development and corporate social responsibility.

The list will be added to in response to customer feedback so keep checking the website for new titles. Also, if there is a topic you would like to see why not let us know and we will see what we can do.

The guides are copyrighted and are for the use of the initial recipient only. Copying of the guides, in any form, for use by someone other than the initial recipient is strictly prohibited.
