Client Testimonials

1548297We are a small charity who needed some HR support and Holgate HR were recommended to us.  We soon discovered what a professional, experienced and expert company they are. A difficult employment situation was dealt with efficiently, fairly and with meticulous attention to detail. The two Directors who both dealt with us were always patient, thorough and ready to support us at any time. Nothing was ever too much trouble, in or out of working hours. Always impartial but ready to advise us with their wealth of experience they helped steer us through very difficult times. This was always done with warmth and a very caring attitude.  Their knowledge is immense and their conduct exemplary. If anyone needs HR advice this is the company we would recommend without hesitation. Andy and Caroline always go the extra mile1548358

1548297Holgate HR have been working in support of the Bebe Group for the past 2/3 years. During that time they have helped us with both complex re-organisation projects, as well as on-going employee relations and performance management work. They have always provided a comprehensive and responsive service via phone or e-mail whenever required, and have taken the time to understand the business and to work with us; finding ways to support what the business needed to achieve, whilst ensuring that we remained compliant with our responsibilities as an employer. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any organisation looking for reliable and flexible HR support.1548358

1548297We chose Holgate HR to develop our new performance management system, 'Step Up', because we were impressed by the cost-effective, personally tailored HR programme we were offered, which still uses the expertise of a larger consultancy. We’re looking forward to working with them to help us provide an even better working environment for our staff.1548358

1548297Over the years, Holgate HR have provided us with supplementary HR support on a number of projects – including employee relations and organisational restructuring work; coaching and mentoring, and working with us in the design and on-going support of our performance management process for our valued employees. No matter what the project their professionalism and practical advice is always present, and the senior management team at Dale Care Ltd value Andy and Caroline as one of our trusted providers1548358 
Mike, Finance Director (Dale Care Ltd)
1548297Caroline Dixon came recommended by another HR consultant to help with some issues in my business. We had a preliminary meeting followed by regular communication leading to new policies and contracts for our staff. She also guided me through a potential performance and capability issue. Through discussions and email she outlined my options and their ramifications each step of the way.  It felt very much like Caroline was working as part of my own business and understood all the subtleties of the organisation.  Highly recommended and excellent value for money.1548358

1548297Holgate HR provided invaluable support throughout the period we were establishing Status Marketing.  They helped steer us through a complex transfer of employees to our new business, advising on TUPE regulations and working with us to update employment contracts and company policies.  We found them to be thoroughly professional throughout and would recommend them unconditionally.1548358

Employment Tribunals struggling?
An article from People Management claims in the period from 1 August 2017 to 31 March 2018, huge numbers of employment tribunal hearings are being postponed within 48 hours of the hearings.
This leads everyone to surmise this could be because the tribunal system has been strained since tribunal fees were abolished last year, particularly given that the numbers of claims received in the first quarter of 2018 have increased by 118% compared with the year before.
For anyone who knows how stressful tribunals these delays will only be making matters worse.  If you need to discuss employment disputes before they reach this stage our team would be happy to chat this through at any time.
