Human resource Solution


Firstlink HR Challenge

One of the most valuable assets of a Start-Up or SME is its people or human capital. The efficient management of employees, however, is usually one of the biggest challenges faced by businesses. In most cases, the core of the problem arises because management fails to acknowledge the need for proper Human Resource systems. This lack of acknowledgment leads to line managers and supervisors assuming the role of human resource management with limited knowledge and training, inadequate policies and procedures framework and lack of resources to deal with staff issues and grievances resulting in obvious failure.

What's the Solution?

As such, we provide flexible HR solutions for Start-Ups and SMEs, so you can focus on what your company does best. Our human resource solution includes:

Compensation and Benefits

The compensation and benefits package of a business is one of the most vital components for attracting and retaining the right talent to your Start-Up or SME. It’s not just about how much wages and salaries are paid to employees.

We take a holistic approach to benefits and compensation. This includes:

We work alongside your Start-Up or SME to ensure that the employee’s grievances and industrial disputes are minimized.

Client Testimonials

Atlantic Tours and Travel Limited

The team at FirstLink has always supported us from inception with our initial company registration providing practical and knowledgeable advice to guide us during the startup process. Fast forward to present – They provide us with both accounting and business advisory services. We feel comfortable and at peace knowing that we can call on Richard and his team at any time day or night to deal with any complex accounting, legal, human resource or business challenge that we’re going through.”


For us, what distinguishes FirstLink from the many accountants we’ve dealt with in the past is their adoption of modern technology to reduce the tedious and administrative processes and their focus on providing clients with not only accounting services but value added advisory and consulting services. As business owners, we’re not necessarily savvy in finance or legal, however, we can always depend on FirstLink for any issue we are facing. We feel like the relationship with FirstLink is more partners for life as oppose to just a client – accountant relationship.


The team at FirstLink introduced our business to Xero accounting. It has given us a lot more control over our financial information and for non-accountants; it is extremely easy to use. The Xero Mobile App easily allows us to send invoices to our customers on the go and tracks when the invoices have been viewed by them. I would definitely recommend Xero and FirstLink to anyone looking to implement cloud software to gain real time financial information to improve their business.

Playa Del Este Limited

Running a business can be a nightmare. Whatever can go wrong will go wrong.
