Fussells Estate Agents

"Thanks for all your help. Really lifts a weight off my shoulders to have advice available on the other end of the phone. HR is such a minefield. We signed up in 2019 and so far you have given us an invaluable service. As well as providing us with an up to date staff handbook and contracts, you are on hand to give advice and support both over the telephone and online. You have a fantastic HR library which has an abundance of templates and flowcharts which we are able to access at any time of the day. I would highly recommend EffectiveHRM." -Catherine Rich

"I’ve worked with EffectiveHRM for just over a year - I recently renewed our subscription. They were invaluable when it came to advice on holidays, pay and contracts, and I’ve just done a staff handbook with them, too. They’re quick and responsive and the perfect HR partner for a small business like us."-Jessica Morgan

Carnsight Communications

"Effective have been incredible in helping in matters that needed a calm head, and spot on advice, on how we can legally and properly guide ourselves through situations that have arisen over the years, that required people who really knew what they were doing. They have taught me to simply always use them if in doubt to guide us with all personnel issues that may arise. I know my team is always assured that they are there to help, highly recommend them, and their professionalism" -Tim Corrigan

DT Contracting

"I have worked with Effective for over 5 years for 2 companies. They are my ‘Go to’ for any H & S issues I have, even if I am just gathering information. The business needs are continuously assessed and visited and inspected regularly. Training is offered where needed and done on the spot. All background paperwork regarding COSHH, Safety Data Sheets are automatically updated annually. Any industry standards that have changed we are notified. It is wonderful being a step ahead of our competitors, better informed and backed up by a professional team. They make the H& S pleasurable, really. I would recommend anytime and would also welcome a call if anybody needed further recommendation." -Collete Hope

Aspire Stone Fabrications

"EffectiveHRM has supported us for several years now but prior to this we used a large provider for all our HR needs. The difference now...EffectiveHRM are more personal - they know and remember staff we have previously worked together with. Their support is quick, effective and sensitive to each individual case. I employ 140 staff so feel we have tackled most people issues. Emma and her team have been there every step of the way; from absences to disciplinaries, having those difficult conversations and even redundancy as well as updating staff contracts and handbooks! Their training opportunities are fantastic too!" -Amanda Bennett

"We have worked with Gemma and her team on a number of occasions and she is responsible for all of our HR issues. She is always happy to answer all our questions, however dull we think they are! Each time they have acted swifty, knowledgably and effectively to solve our problems. We have recommended her to a number of our clients and she has helped them bring their businesses up to date with the correct HR procedures. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for any HR issues big or small." -Liz Gibbs-Murray
