From Our Clients

Since I began working with Karen, I quickly realised how professional she is. Karen is a very proactive consultant, keen to implement systems to ensure the smooth running of the ‘people management’ side of my business. Karen is a very approachable person and is always happy to get involved when needed. Her care and interest in how the business works has been clear from the outset. We have now worked together on tidying up the human resources side of the business which I would recommend to anyone who has people in their business.

Karen would be an asset to any business that she is working with, her experience and knowledge in HR is clear. I would absolutely recommend Karen. Like many businesses, mine grew and more people were taken on, it’s a minefield to navigate HR without appropriate support. I cannot thank Karen enough for the support she has given myself and my team.

Karen was engaged to help our firm undertake a large-scale reorganisation of our Group structure and start the process of introducing HR as a core function of the business. Naturally employees were anxious about the proposed changes but Karen’s friendly, approachable and personable nature made for a very engaged, relaxed consultation.

From a personal perspective, working closely with Karen during this period of change has been a pleasure. Her professional, experienced head and transparent approach to all matters encountered resulted in a great exchange of ideas and approaches that truly enhanced the process and engaged all levels of the business. I look forward to collaborating with Karen in the future and embedding HR into the heartbeat of the Group organisation.
