We have been working with Lynn and her team at Pennine Business Partners for the last 2 years.  Lynn expertly took the time to learn and understand our business dynamics and suggest an agreed tailored package, which successfully works in tandem with our business requirement.   

They provide an excellent support to our in-house HR function, not only keeping us up to date with any changes in the law but ensuring we as a business, are guided expertly and in a timely manner through any HR situation which may occur, when needed. 

The whole team are friendly and welcoming - nothing is ever too small or too much trouble.

We have been extremely satisfied with the support we have received and would highly recommend Lynn and her team at Business Pennine Partners.  

They are a true asset to our business allowing our business specialists to be experts in their own field but knowing they can rely on the knowledge and reassurance of Pennine Business Partners specialists will provide the professional HR/employment law advice – be it through guidance, reassurance and/or practical advice when required, hands-on or over the telephone.

Their regular seminars are an added bonus often reflecting on both topical and general day to day issues which occur within businesses.

Director Steve Graham said “we initially wanted Pennine Business Partners to support us with a specific issue which was causing us some concern.  This was resolved swiftly and professionally, and we were happy to sign up for a retainer package which means all our personnel information is secured in their cloud environment and we have the peace of mind of their specialist support and the end of the phone whenever we need it.”

I am very pleased with the way you handled the long-term absence issue that we were having with an employee.  Your approach was very professional and the outcome was satisfactory for all parties.  I am happy to pass on my positive experience of the quality of HR Support provided to us by Pennine Business Partners and I have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.

Steve Staniforth, MD, Staniforths (Rawmarsh) LTD

I approached Pennine Business for support me with an issue I had with an employee.  After they helped deal with the issue, I engaged them to provide ongoing HR support.

I have been delighted with the results.  They have formalised our HR documentation and procedures and supported my Management team through a number of complex employment issues.  Plus, they have implemented a very effective recruitment strategy that has not only reduced our costs, it has provided us with some high calibre staff.

Pennine Business Partners have proven to be very flexible to meet the needs of my business.  They are very knowledgeable in the field of HR and always conduct themselves in a very professional manner.

Craig Simcock, Director, Simprint

Pennine Business Partners have provided HR support for several years and were our provider when I joined the Union.  They have helped us tremendously over the last 12 months by expertly guiding us through a number of issues including redundancy and an unfair dismissal claim.

We have benefitted greatly from their support with staffing issues and we have seen very positive results in attendance, sickness and performance.

Their experienced, professional and efficient service is second to none.  They are a pleasure to work with and I would 100% recommend them.



Julie Moss, Head of Operations, South Yorkshire Credit Union

Having known Lynn for a number of years it was natural for us to look to Pennine Business Partners for HR support when we became dissatisfield with our incumbent provider.

We have been impressed with the support and service we have received right from the start.  They have ensured that all our processes and documentation are in place and our HR support now flows smoothly - helping us keep our employees engaged and staff turnover low.

Lynn and her team keep calm in a crisis and her strategic thinking is imperative for future business planning.
