We first approached Lance Hobbs and HR Department in the summer of 2018 about supporting our business with HR advice. Since then Lance has advised on a number of issues ranging from a review of our standard HR template document to managing difficult conversations and health and well being support for our staff.
We have always found Lance to be prompt and responsive so that we can deal with issues quickly and resolve little internal problems before they turn into big problems which affect performance. Lance always ensures that there is notice and cover when he is away and we always know that HR Dept is there to respond to us.
We have implemented a number of initiatives on Lance’s advice including the launch of an EAP and we look forward to carrying on to improve our staff support which we think will not only be beneficial for health and well being but ultimately also for performance and productivity. We would confidently recommend HR Dept’s services to others.

Lance was very understanding about our unique business transfer needs and he clearly knew what we wanted. Communication was very clear all the time and I have seen him emphasising on key points during the conversation.
Though our business transfer took a long time, Lance remained patient and truly approachable for all our silly questions. He has very good knowledge on the HR matters and brings to the table a lot of experience from various industries. Overall we are very happy with Lance’s services and recommend Lance for other Businesses.

New Space wanted to thank you for your work and guidance on our job application form. The revised form is now more concise and easier to understand. Your assistance has made us more professional and efficient.
We have been using this new form successfully and have very good feedback from applicants
VJ, Director, New Space
Thank you for the typically rigorous manner in which you have reviewed our contracts of associateship. Your report was a reflection of the way in which you present yourself: elegant, clear, competent and concise! It was good to know that our existing contracts were in the ball park and lending themselves to no obvious spillage, but your suggestions for improvement were equally perceptive, insightful and clear. We are now in a much better place.
I have of course no hesitation in recommending your services to friends, patients and business contacts.

We would like to say a big thank you to Lance for all his work in producing a contract for our new apprentice who has just started working with us.
It is important to us that both our apprentice and Angloz has the security that a professional contract offers and that clear expectations and obligations are set up front to ensure a professional working relationship.
Lance Hobbs listened to our requirements and produced a relevant and legally sound contract with a quick turnaround.
We would highly recommend Lance Hobbs at HR Dept for his speedy and professional work.
Neil & Teresa Sanders, Directors, Angloz Electrical
Very quick and efficient service - Lance provided us with quick turnarounds on all our requests and would highly recommend to anyone wanting sound advice regarding employment policies or contracts.

We have been working with Lance since Autumn 2016 and it has been a very positive experience. Lance has proved that he has the experience required to immerse himself into a new organisation with ease, and has provided us with quality HR provision from Director level through to the operational requirements of our organisations always with a positive, ‘can-do’ attitude. His ability to see where issues may arise and head them off before they have to be dealt with, is a particular skill that has been useful to us. He has helped me in particular to focus on the vision, and the senior management and organisation structure, whilst dealing with some of the day to day HR matters, professionally and pragmatically. He has guided me through a restructure that required changes from top to bottom of my organisation.
