Going it alone to seek the challenge of running your own freelance HR consultancy rather than working for someone is certainly exciting. However, conceiving your new business is only the start – you still have to sell it and become a success.

Needless to say, if you now find yourself in the big wide open world of freelancing, you’re likely to have a wealth of knowledge from the time you spent working for other HR consultancies. You know the law surrounding Human Resources and you’ve handled many complex cases, dealt with trade unions and learned all you know from a highly experienced and clever head of HR; but there’s one thing you don’t have – a HR solution that you can sell to your clients to give them the ‘full package deal’.

That’s where Staff Squared can help you.

What is Staff Squared?

Lovingly crafted by Atlas Computer Systems Ltd in 2011, Staff Squared is a HR system that makes it easy to manage all HR tasks from one web based platform, including:


Giving your clients complete automation of their staff onboarding processes while remaining compliant with UK employment laws and legislation. The onboarding section allows you to engage with new hires from the outset, get staff actively involved in keeping their records up-to-date and automatically request them to confirm that they have read important files.

Absence management

Using an online absence calendar to manage all staff time off in one central and easy to use area, along with powerful holiday management that allows staff to request their own holiday and automates holiday processing for managers, you will be able to help you clients to easily stay on top of their absence management.

Staff Profiling and data storage

Your clients’ data will be stored in a simple, yet effective profile which is encrypted to ensure high levels of data protection at all times. Information relating to contact details, next of kin information and job relevant particulars can all be stored in their respective profile tabs to make for a tidy and attractive profile page that is easy for you to manage on their behalf.

Effective reports

Our powerful HR reporting is instantly available and easy to export. As an HR consultant, all you need to know about your clients and their HR trends will be available to you in real-time. You can even schedule reports to run regularly in your partner portal.

File management

Store all of your clients’ important documents in one secure, online, backed up location. You can also group them so it’s easy to stay organised and quickly find the files you need. Files can be stored in a shared company area, or individually on each employee’s profile. You can even upload files to your clients’ accounts directly from your partner portal.

And Much More…

With notifications for all holiday and sickness requests, handy alerts if you’re about to double book an event and integrations with Microsoft Outlook and Google Calendars as well as a dedicated Customer Care Team always at hand, Staff Squared is exactly what your potential client base are looking for.

The Partner Portal

We have designed a partner portal, specifically with HR consultants in mind. A partner account with Staff Squared grants you access to multiple client accounts all from one simple platform, allowing you to log in and manage their data easily and efficiently.

The portal’s easy to navigate layout allows you to filter between your live client accounts and the clients who are currently trialling Staff Squared – a service available to any new prospective customers on a 14-day free period.

Trial accounts can be managed in the same way as live, paying accounts and, should the client decide that they want to upgrade, all the data that you have already uploaded for them will be exactly where you left it. You and your client can continue to work together in one straightforward and streamlined process.

The best part about the partner portal is that, should your business take off and see you working with other HR consultants in the future, you have the ability to add multiple users, allowing everyone who requires access to the platform capacity to manage client accounts.

Become a Partner

Staff Squared gives you the opportunity to work together with your clients seamlessly as it’s available wherever there is internet access; and here’s the best bit – becoming a Staff Squared partner is completely FREE!
