I'm writing to thank you for the expert help and extremely high level of personal service provided to us recently.
When faced with a complaint of bullying and verbal abuse we were determined to deal with the issue promptly and with the correct level of sensitivity.
After spending a whole day of writing, scrapping and re-writing letters, our Managing Director (who is usually not lost for works) turned to you for help. And help you certainly did, producing a masterpeice of a letter stating in the most diplomatic terms that while we valued our relationship with the client, we could not allow such behaviour towards our staff.
I am pleased to be able to tell you that the matter has now been brought to a satisfactory conclusion.
I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting a top quality HR service that you can absolutely depend on.
Thank you once again.
We had a human resources emergency late on a Friday afternoon, and although we knew what we wanted to do, we needed some guidance on how to do it!
We called Lynn and after a 10 minute chat on the phone we had a clear and concise set of actions to follow.
Lynn was a calming influence in a fast moving and unpredictable sequence of events. I have no problem in recommending her services to anyone with staff, our only regret is that we didn't speak to Lynn sooner to have these tools available to us before any issues occurred.
Anyone who employs any staff should speak to Lynn and her team at Pennine Business Partners to make sure they have the correct documentation and procedures in place.
My Company employed the services of Lynn of Pennine Business Partners to act as our consultant and 'in house' HR department.
Recently we have had to rely heavily on Lynn to assist us in a matter of employment legality and all the associated required procedures we need to have in place to protect our Company interests. Lynn has taken away the stress, doubts and burden of dealing with the matter and is looking after the situation perfectly.
I can only say that i would not hesitate to recommend her company services to anyone with employees and contractual obligations to honour in this regard.
I appointed Lynn to design a bespoke appraisal package to get the best out of my growing team. My previous way of appriasing my staff needed a major re-vamp and i required a multi-faceted system that both my managers and i could use.
We talked entensively about each different role and Lynn helped me identify which areas were of key importance and relevance for each role. Based on this Lynn developed a comprehensive yet easy to follow system which is great as it allows me to measure the development of my staff which i find very useful. As well as this, it has vastly improved the communication of the whole team and most importantly i have started seeing an improvement in the performance of my staff.
I am strongly passionate about creating a highly enthusuastic and fun working environment with the goal of making my staff happy and enthused about work. Your appraisal system is certainly helping me in continuing to achieve this goal.
I would strongly recommend Lynn Bradley and Pennine Business Partners to any of my contacts.
I write to thank you for your services in assisting us in relation to an extremely delicate employment issue at Walker Singleton. This was a potentially time consuming and costly exercise for the Company, however, following your intervention we reached an amicable settlement with the staff member in a short timeframe and at minimal expense.
This was a particularly sensitive staff issue and we had to balance the business needs against the enployee's personal circumstances outside of the workplace, which presented a real dilemma for us.
Lynn quickly assessed the situation and set out the respective legal positions, but also came up with a pragmatic, amicable solution which was accpetable to both sides and a potentially tricky and costly employment issue was resolved in a very short time frame.
I would have no hesitation in using your services again and I commend Pennine Business Partners to my business contacts.
I am writing to express our delight in the service you are providing to AHC. We were using your HR expertise prior to November 2012 but you kindly stepped in to provide HR support at a critical time in our business on an on-going basis.
Firstly, your approach to staff and managing staff is highly professional, yet friendly and engaging. Our staff are our most important asset so it's important they are happy.
Second, your understanding of how businesses work meant a fresh pair of eyes in the systems and processes we have in place. This is an added value to us, as we now have a more streamline business which means that anyone coming in, to take on a new role, has everything they need to complete the work efficiently and effectively.
All in all, we cannot thank you enough for going the extra mile and provided such an excellent service to AHC. We were already strongly recommending you to our customers and suppliers and please be assured we will continue to do so.
Pennine Business Partners are excellent. They provided us with strategic, bespoke and proactive advice, and backed that up with a programme design which allowed for us to integrate their advice into our business.
We will be back!
Thank you so much for all of the work you have done for us recently. It has greatly helped the business in an area that is very important to us to get just right – the people!
The contract of employment and staff hand book you prepared for us really means that we have the foundations of our HR in place. The process itself was easy and your knowledge, promptness in answering our questions is very much appreciated.
We had no hesitation in engaging you in our recruitment process and indeed the interview preparation questions are just what we want to ensure the right person is found.
For a small team, it’s imperative that our people and people management is at the forefront of our minds and feel that by having a specialist to work with we will gain much, much more than by trying to ‘hash’ a process together for ourselves!
Thank you so much.
I’d certainly recommend you to anyone looking for valuable human resources input and also anyone who thinks they don’t need it... as I’m sure they’ll find they really do!
