Who We Are

We provide a full spectrum of people and culture services, from basic HR processes and procedures through to making sure that your people are living your values and doing the best job they can. We are informal communicators and we invest in building long term authentic relationships with our clients.

About Us

We are passionate about people and making them as effective, engaged and enthusiastic as they can be. Our clients also share this belief. We’re different because we don’t want to build bureaucratic walls so our clients can keep their brilliant people doing brilliant work. We do want to take the pressure off them by reducing their exposure to risk but without too much interference.

Getting and Keeping the Right People

It doesn’t take a genius to work out if you get the right people in, they will have a positive impact on your business. Understanding who is right for your business (how they work and behave) is half the battle. We can help you define what is the right ‘fit’ and support you with the search and selection of these people.

Resolving Difficulties

Sometimes things go wrong and remedial action is necessary. Relationships between people can break down in any environment, and the workplace is no different. Clashes in personality, poor communication, bullying, discrimination and harassment can create a significant risk to your business, especially as changing social norms make inappropriate behaviours increasingly unacceptable. We can guide you step by step, or manage any grievance or disciplinary action that may arise.

Making the Most of Your People

We work with our clients to identify and maximize not only technical talent but also the spirit and enthusiasm in their people. Managing both elements openly and honestly allows early training needs to be detected, issues to be raised safely, and support and encouragement to be put in place. We can help you identify the potential in your people, and develop tailored plans to help them to achieve it.

Clarity and Legislation

HR Policies should help to build your company culture, not work against it. Our aim is to reduce your exposure to risk without being a complete bore about it. As legislation changes, we keep you informed, and can help you to make sure that you comply.

Rewarding Your People

The rewards that your people value and what motivates them are more than purely financial – typically one third of employees would move to a different company to work in a better environment. We can develop novel reward schemes with very low price tags, and have seen immediate interest from candidates when listing some of our client benefits. Reward is an area that can really reinforce the Values and Culture of businesses, and we can help you bring it to life.

Creating the Right Environment

Creating and maintaining the right environment will support everything that you do in your business. It will help you attract and keep the right people, and to get the best out of them. It also gives you a clear framework to work with when managing performance.
