Set up in 1997, we use our vast employment knowledge and human resource experience to provide clients with positive solutions. We provide our clients with options of ‘what can be done’ to assist with managing risk.

Home » The Difference » Our Ethos

We are always approachable, whatever the issue, if it is a concern to you, then we are happy to listen. Our objective is to be the ‘go to people’ for sound legal advice on employment issues, in order to fully support businesses. We deal pragmatically with difficult situations when they arise having set the correct policies out so they can be dealt with. This approach can help save time and money. Employment tribunals can then be avoided, resulting in greatly reduced expenditure.

Crispin Rhodes can help you with policies, procedures, practical ‘how to’ strategies to help support your business grow and evolve, whilst complying with HR legislation. You can use our services to implement new procedures or projects, keeping any potential disruption to a minimum, enabling you to focus on the effective running of your business.

The majority of our business comes through referral. We know from feedback that our network of clients feel we do a great job, why else would you recommend an organisation to others? We are passionate about all that we do, and it is vital that our clients feel they can depend and rely on the Crispin Rhodes team at all times.


Brand Values are the guiding principles by which the Crispin Rhodes brand lives. We use them as a quality benchmark, against which we can measure organisational performance and behaviours.


Crispin Rhodes is a strong, well established organisation that uses its vast knowledge base to provide clients with options in order to effectively manage commercial risk. Our dedication, commitment and experience needs to be accentuated in everything we do.


We aim to continuously develop the organisation, our service and our people. Working passionately together will achieve the best results for our clients and create a buzz within the team. Our absolute focus is on the customer, so they can fully depend on us to work on their behalf.


Providing an approachable, tailored, responsive service, Crispin Rhodes is always honest and genuine in its approach. People can trust us to do what we say we’ll do. Working within the boundaries of employment law, we must be viewed as honest and straight forward.


We operate with an experienced, supportive, responsive and well-informed team. Our wealth of human resource knowledge and staff expertise will enable customers to be confident in all that we do. Expertise enables us to provide flexible solutions. Our reputation is key to our success.


Our aim is to build a solid bond with our clients, effectively listening in order to understand. We provide the right information, advice and guidance, seeking to achieve long term relationships by delivering a responsive, supportive and positive experience.


We believe that it’s everybody’s responsibility to help make the world a little brighter and a little better. Over the years we’ve been fortunate to be involved in community projects both locally and further afield, and – thanks to the generous support of our friends and partners – we’ve been able to raise over £120,000 for those causes.
