French Human Resources Expertise

French HR Specialists

We help businesses with a presence in France. Our team is confident in supporting HR teams and senior management with any questions and issues related to having employees in France. We also liaise with local third parties on our clients’ behalf such as the labour inspector or occupational health if needed.

Our services include employment law and employee relations advice, company HR set up, compliance, audits, employee representatives’ elections and collective negotiations, drafting of company agreements, training, change management, etc.

If you need HR expertise and guidance in France, you’ll particularly appreciate our understanding of people practices there, and our ability to convey meaning that can be sometimes missed due to culture differences.

What people say about us


“The support and expertise that the Viridian HR team has provided to Pyroguard over the past five years have been crucial to our success and growth in the French region. Initially offering a full-function solution, Viridian HR has seamlessly transitioned into an advisory role, supporting our in-house HR team as we continue to grow and develop. Their ability to offer the right level of support for any business need makes them an invaluable HR partner. Viridian HR truly stands out as a great business partner.”

Laura Mellling - Pyroguard
HR Director

Baptiste from Viridian HR has given us legal advice regarding exiting employees in France on a couple of occasions.  He explained the process that each option would take and also reached out to solicitors on our behalf to gain further support when required, which has helped us to make informed decisions.

 His communication throughout helping us has been regular and consistent.  His help and advice has been a big assistance in navigating the complexities of French employment law when exiting employees and ensuring that we are fully compliant with all legal requirements. I highly recommend Viridian HR for their excellent service and will use them again in the future.

We needed some general assistance in the day to day running of our team in France – assisting with smaller enquiries, to larger and more complex issues. Viridian HR has seamlessly delivered on every requirement. Questions on local employment law are always answered quickly and concisely. When more complex projects have occurred, Viridian HR are timely and professional, and patient in explaining each stage of the process. It has been a real relief to work with a team that are not only experts in their field, but are incredibly patient and approachable with anything we need assistance with.

The Viridian HR team have been a huge support to Oxford Immunotec (now Revvity); they have given practical and realistic advice and are always on hand to help with all day-to-day French HR queries. We have our Occupational Health managed by Viridian HR too which is now a quick and efficient process. We couldn’t fault the support that has been given by the Viridian HR team to date and would recommend their services to anyone who is in need of French HR expertise!
