Firms join forces to beef up their HR offering to SMEs

Yorkshire-based Bhayani Law has merged with Lync HR to strengthen its offering to clients.

The combined business will provide a host of additional services including recruitment, HR, employment law, HR software, Health & Safety training, and coaching.

Bhayani Law was established by Jay Bhayani in 2014 and the firm has continued to grow since then.

In 2021 sister company Bhayani Recruitment was born and has seen a significant increase in take up of its approach to recruitment, particularly from the firm’s existing client base.

The firm, which has offices in Sheffield, Barnsley, Leeds, Leicester and London, has recently been approved as a Skills Bank provider and can now offer a broader range of hard and soft training to managers with Lync Learning’s training expertise.

Lync HR is an established employment and human resource consultancy service, founded by Lyn Easton in 2002.

Jay Bhayani said the merger has come at the right time, with many businesses contending with candidate and skills shortages.

She added: “Combining services from both businesses will provide a compelling offering for our clients and give us scope to deliver our work into further areas such as Doncaster and North Yorkshire where Lyn has strong links.

“We are very excited about our first merger which fits in nicely with our expansion plans. Having known Lyn for many years I know that her approach is aligned with my own, of not forgetting the ‘human aspect of human resource.’”

Easton has 20 years’ experience working within HR. Her experience is from a wide generalist background with specific expertise in Employee Relations, Effective Communication, Understanding Behaviour and Health & Wellbeing.

She said: “Knowing Jay for some years, meeting all her team and understanding how our ethos and values in business work well together our merger is a good fit.

“I want to continue to offer to Lync HR clients the same practical down to earth, professional approach with the extra bonus that some other business needs can be covered all in one place – legal, recruitment, Health & Safety & Training.

“I am thrilled to merge Lync HR with Bhayani Law. I have known and cherished working with Lync HR clients and feel that my ‘Erin Brockovich’ approach – watch the film – to HR will be replicated.”
