We’re highly academically qualified
As you would expect, we’re officially competent. Between us we have a fine collection of degrees, masters, doctorates, and professional qualifications. We’re academically qualified in training, HR, employment law, business, psychology, sociology, teaching, and information technology, amongst other things.
We’re highly professionally qualified
All of our training consultants are fully accredited by the CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development. We also hold a number of professional qualifications from other related industry bodies, such as the conciliation service ACAS, and the Pensions Management Institute.
We’re highly experienced
We’ve previously held successful senior level positions within major corporations such as Eon, Otis Elevators, The Co-operative Group, and RS Components, as well as public sector organisations such as county councils and the NHS. So, we know what large corporates are about, because that’s where we honed our HR and employment law skills. And we know what it is to be a fast-growing small business, because that’s exactly what we currently are ourselves.
We’ve worked with engineers, beauticians, gardeners, auctioneers, pharmacists, designers, charities, accountants, universities, nightclubs, and many other types of business. We’ve worked with hundred year old traditional businesses, as well as brand new high tech ones. We’ve spent our time in factories full of molten metal, as well as in offices full of paper. We’ve worked within private, public, academic, and charity sectors.
We’ve supported workforces consisting of full-time employees, part-time employees, zero hours workers, annualised hours workers, shift workers, temporary staff, self-employed contractors, apprentices, volunteers, and interns. We’ve work with unionised businesses, as well as those staffed by family members.
We’ve seen a whole range of workplace cultures and management styles, from the autocratic to the laissez-faire. We’ve worked with hazardous industries enforcing strict safety rules and rigid procedures, as well as creative ones offering large amounts of personal freedom and flexibility. We’ve helped businesses who already have well established people processes, as well as those who are just getting them in place.
So, whatever your setup, we’ve probably seen something like it before.
