    All of the content in Primed, our online system, has been created by our team of brilliant lawyers, highly qualified HR professionals and health & safety consultants, all with significant experience in their areas of expertise. Our template documents and guidance have undergone rigorous checks to ensure they are water-tight and of the highest quality.

     

    For the past 20 years, Outset has been challenging the status quo in the professional services sector.

    When we started to work with smaller, owner-managed businesses like yours, we realised many of you were missing out on high quality legal advice when you needed it. This was sometimes because the cost was too much, but more often than not, the service was not designed to match your needs – which was why we created Primed.

    Yes. We have designed them in a way that anyone can use them, and have provided step-by-step guidance of how to use them. However, we always suggest having them reviewed by us before implementing them to make sure they do the job you need. You can access this free of charge with our Primed Premium package.
