Client Testimonials

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

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

Study shows retirees are returning to the workplace
Research by the University of Mancester and King's College London shows that around a quarter of retirees return to work, with most of those heading back to the daily grind within five years of retiring.

Additionally, those with post-secondary qualifications were almost twice as likely to return to work than those with no qualifications.

This raises questions as to whether this points to the changing nature of retirement 
transitions, or does it relate to the options available to supplement savings or retirement income in later life?  

Other commentators are noting the research may have uncovered an issue with people financially having no other option than to work in their golden years.
