What Our Clients Say...

“Kate & her colleagues have provided HR support on a range of matters over the last few years. The sort of things I’ve asked for help with include dealing with poor performance, stress, apprentices, sickness, the sad death of an employee and an outbreak of strong political views in the workplace. Whatever I’ve asked for help Kate has always advised me quickly, giving me options and explaining why they are recommending the route they have. She and her team make sure that I understand the advice so I can apply it properly. They take a genuine interest in my business, and are so sensible and practical. Kate’s built a great team that don’t just give flip answers - they really think about the right solutions for us. I wish more businesses gave such good service. Kate and co are a real pleasure to work with.”
