Hello and welcome

Debbie Johnston has over 25 years ‘hands on’ HR experience across many different types of businesses.  We like to think there isn’t a HR matter she has hadn’t had to deal with.   However as she says “I like to think what I am best at is translating the HR language into straight business talk”.  Debbie is MCIPD qualified – the professional body overseeing her business.

What do we do?

Act as your Outsourced HR Department. 

We guide and support you through the whole employee life cycle, making sure you are legally compliant and maximise the performance of your staff.

One off projects.

Your HR department or Business may need an extra pair of hands to manage a project such as restructure/  TUPE transfer/ Employee engagement survey.  With our many years of experience we can help manage these often tricky legal and potentially emotional processes.


We are passionate (even to the point of nerdiness) about HR software and how it can help take the administrative burden off employers.  Our software can also interface with payroll software too. We work with a really cost effective cloud based solution that starts at £2 per employee / month

We can undertake a market review for medium sized businesses (up to 500 employees) of HR software that is suitable for their business and then look to manage the whole roll-out of this project.

It is always re-assuring to know we have someone pro-actively supporting our business with both your software platform and professional HR service.

This was demonstrated when we approached you about a difficult HR issue.  Your advice guiding us through this difficult process, dealing with the staff directly, yourself enabled the management team to focus on the business.  The additional re-assurance of being fully insured (unlike an in House HR person) is a very valuable benefit of your service”

We use Debbie Johnston from Sagegreen.  The system she introduced best suited our needs she has worked in HR over 20 years.  I can’t recommend her or the system highly enough, from demonstration to implementation, then after sales service, 10 out of 10.
