Right Hand joins main body of RSM

Right Hand developed a proprietary cloud-based HR IT system application - PeopleLog

RSM has bought HR consulting business Right Hand HR Limited for an undisclosed sum.

Based in High Wycombe with operations in London, Newcastle, Chester and Exeter, the company offers services including human resource management, employment law compliance, payroll, recruitment, training, development, change management and health and safety.

It has also developed a proprietary cloud-based HR IT system application, PeopleLog, designed to reduce clients’ administrative burden and staff management costs.

Established in 1999 by current executive chairman Campbell Ritchie, the firm recorded turnover of over £1.3m last year.

Right Hand HR managing director Steve Sweetlove will become a partner at RSM, while Ritchie and technical services director Glenn Phillips will act as consultants to RSM and support the strategic development of Right Hand HR. Under the terms of the deal, all 26 employees will join RSM.

David Gwilliam, chief operating officer at RSM said: ‘Last year, turnover for RSM’s consulting business grew by 195 per cent and we see scope for further growth in the important HR consulting market. Right Hand HR will complement our existing HR consulting capability and provide our clients with a much wider suite of HR services.’

Revenues at RSM increased 26% to £292m for its 2015 financial year ending 31 March, owing to double-digit growth across all its service lines.
