Personality pays off for HR and employment law firm

In Marketing Derby’s latest edition of Innovate Magazine, we meet the team at Precept – a HR and employment law firm with personality.

Led by director Rob Tice, the ethos of the Mansfield Road-based firm is to ‘support employers of all shapes and sizes with all sorts of HR and employment law problems’ by doing law differently, dropping the jargon and giving simple solutions.

And as Innovate Magazine finds out, this no-nonsense attitude, friendly approach and ability to create and nurture trusted relationships is reaping dividends for Precept.

Around a year ago, the firm rebranded to reflect its personable approach and celebrate its expansion.

As result, the firm ended 2023 with a raft of new clients, an ever-growing team and a shiny East Midlands Business Masters award, after being named Small Business of the Year.

Rob, whose team includes wife Emma, told Innovate: “It really has been a fantastic year for Precept and I’m proud to have such a brilliant, committed team supporting me.

“Starting a business is a tough gig, but just stepping back to look at what we have achieved in a relatively short space of time is amazing.”

In from the start of the Precept journey was Rob’s friend of many years Alan Watson, head of Barron McCann, a hugely successful IT services provider, which has been operating from the city since 1977, working across retail, hospitality, leisure, travel and the banking sector.

It deploys hardware and software solutions and provides support afterwards – think electronic ticketing systems and tills in major supermarkets.

It’s a far cry from the services offered by Precept, which specialises in outsourced HR, training, online HR resources, HR and employment law advice and defending employment tribunal claims for companies.

Rob told Innovate: “The journey started with Barron McCann – we were initially called BMc Precept – and we don’t want to lose that association.

“However, we felt that the start of the year was the right time to go it alone.

“We had gone through a period of growth, with staff numbers increasing from one to five, and, although Alan is still involved, I oversee the day-to-day running of the business.”

Rob said he takes great pride in Precept’s ‘fresh and accessible’ approach.

He said: “We want our clients to feel comfortable in asking what they perceive as ‘simple’ questions; we want to drop the jargon.

“And although we’re growing as a business – we have clients all over the UK and being able to hold meetings virtually has helped massively with the growth of our business – we want to continue to have that personable approach.”
