Karen has provided excellent HR advice to one of our companies. I would happily seek her help again.
We appointed Karen (The HR Dept) as our HR advisor in 2011. Karen has provided invaluable support and advice during a very busy period for Evensure Management. She continues to steer us in the right direction and has also acted as mediator in difficult circumstances.
Karen is one of the best HR people that I have ever come across. Normally you get the dross of people sitting at their desks pushing pens. Karen is a great example of true strategic HR planning. She engages with managers to understand the requirements of people, training and succession planning and how to get the best out of staff. I would have no hesitation in working with Karen or indeed recommending her to one of my own clients.
We have been working with Karen at The HR Dept as our HR service provider since 2010. It quickly became apparent that Karen and her team were able to provide us with the personal and accurate one-to-one service we were looking for. We enjoy the benefits of working with a small team; they always provide the most accurate and up to date advice available. We trust their knowledge and expertise and feel very secure in knowing that we are getting it right! We are very happy with the services of The HR Dept – long may it continue! We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Karen and her team.
Karen and her team at The HR Dept provide an outsourced HR service that feels much more like a permanent employment HR team. Karen has become an integral and essential part of our management team who is always available to support both me and my staff. She is extremely personable and professional and brings a real value-add to our company. I very much enjoy working with Karen as she brings a real energy and positive attitude and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to other organisations.
I have worked with Karen and her team for just under a year now. I was apprehensive at first - outsourced HR? Hmmm... that soon disappeared when they started working for us. I have worked in many corporations with large HR teams but Karen's team "trumps" them. Very very impressive - and fantastic value for money. Thanks!
