What Clients Say About Us
As a fast growing startup, it was important to us to quickly establish our people priorities and HR Rockstars helped us identify them. Jo has been with us as we grow, develop our culture and our people. In urgent times, Jo responds quickly and guides us through step by step making us feel at ease. We would recommend to any startup to engage with HR Rockstars and to put people and culture on the top of their list.
It is said that if you want to get a job done, give it to a busy person — Jo is that person. Despite being pulled in multiple directions, Jo is never flustered, always approachable, open and dependable, never dropping the ball, and, using her soft skills to great effect, demanding the same of those she interacts with. Moreover, not satisfied with just carrying on the day to day asks of her, as an experienced HR professional Jo continually looks for opportunities to make the HR function more scalable in general through improvements to internal processes. Jo’s role as HR Business Partner to the Technology function has helped that team to literally change up a gear with its recruitment and on-boarding process. Specifically, Jo has been a massive help to me in recruiting a new team from scratch and has delivered fully across a broad spectrum of HR responsibilities in that regard. At interview Jo’s contribution was priceless in surfacing issues that would have otherwise gone undetected. Jo is a great communicator at all levels of the business and is also very comfortable speaking with authority to the whole company on behalf of the HR team during all-staff meetings. Jo’s good mix of professionalism and sense of humour make her an absolute joy to work with, she is liked by all who come into contact with her. I count her as a valued professional colleague and trusted friend. If you have the chance of working with her don’t miss it.
As a multicultural international business we have always tried to focus on best practice and avoiding issues before they occur. HR Rock stars has enabled us to support our staff and cover a host of needs that we never could have provided within budget without their help.
I’ve been working with HR Rockstars for nearly a year now and I can honestly say the stress of running my own business and my people has decreased tenfold. I know I can call them with any question however basic or complex, they map out the process clearly offering me support and guidance all the way.
When things go wrong, Jo’s interventions positively contributed to resolving issues and brought potentially negative experiences round to a positive conclusion. I am more than happy to recommend Jo and HR Rockstars.
