Since we signed up for the Russell HR Consulting retained service, our HR lives became so much easier! The Russell HR team are friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. They are also proactive and call me to check how things are going or remind me of things to be done. This has meant that problems are, by and large, nipped firmly in the bud. If I need them to come and provide HR support on site, they do. Watching Kate and her team at work is very impressive. It’s taught us a lot about the tactics of dealing with problems and providing support to employees who have genuine difficulties.
