Recommendation from Managing Partner, legal firm:
"Sue has now worked with our in-house HR team on a number of assignments relating to
implementation of performance based assessment, including coaching senior
management. Sue has demonatrated a fantastic ability to assimilate our business
needs and deliver practical solutions and guidance. I would highly commend Sue
to anyone seeking HR consultancy to enhance and support improved business
Recommendation from Commercial Director, IT industry:
I hired Sue to take over a very difficult redundancy programme part way through delivery. From the very first meeting, Sue's professionalism and expert knowledge were apparent. She managed the entire process including directing our admin staff, and it was extremely successful - not only were we able to make the redundancies needed, but many of the affected staff left (and remain) on amicable terms.
My colleagues, from board level down to the affected staff themselves, were impressed by Sue's combination of attention to detail, professional demenour, and considerate execution. We have hired her again since for other HR activities and plan to do so again. I thoroughly recommend her services: my only regret is that I didn't hire her sooner."
Recommendation from a Director, Manufacturing Company
"A fresh pair of, impartial and experienced eyes were most welcome and have enabled us to review our greatest assets, our employees, and unlock their potential.
Employment law and practices are constantly evolving, and trying to balance the needs of a modern lean business, means that sadly we can't be experts in all matters. To find Human Resources professionals that we have confidence in, with a proven track record is a real comfort.
I would highly recommend your company's services to any small to medium business and look forward to working with your company in the future."
