OSM is pleased to provide members with free access to TwoGreySuits.

TwoGreySuits is a unique website and hotline service designed to help small and medium sized businesses deal with the inevitable people management challenges that arise.

It was created by senior HR professionals with extensive experience working with small and medium sized businesses. The site is easy to navigate and is designed so that you can get the information you are looking for quickly including forms, letters, processes, policies, questions & answers and educational tools.

The Hotline is for real time HR emergencies or when you want direction on the use of the website. In all cases, a senior HR professional will respond to your questions within 24 hours. Many users refer to TwoGreySuits’ HR Power Centre as having HR insurance for their business.
