Case Studies & Testimonals

Balanced HR works with clients on a diverse range of projects. Here are some examples of how we’ve helped businesses like yours:

Retained HR Services

We provide ongoing, retained HR consultancy services to many of our clients and have built long standing relationships.

We’ve been on hand to support managers with difficult and sensitive employee situations, such as short and long term sickness, grievances, disciplinary and dismissals and have created strategies to support the development and growth of the business.

What our clients say:

“Angela is a very efficient individual who conducts herself professionally at all times. She has managed sensitive situations for us in the past and present. Her ability to be pragmatic whilst always maintaining a balanced and fair approach to difficult situations makes her a stand out asset to any firm”    Richard Boyle, CEO at French Linen Co Ltd

"Angela guided our management team through a number of sensitive issues, facilitating grievance, disciplinary, redundancy and TUPE processes, employing a pragmatic and balanced approach. She was proactive in ensuring that the team were kept updated on employment law changes and what they meant in real terms for our business, including guidance on what changes should be made. She was always on hand to answer our questions and provided a vital and much valued service."     DQ Associates Consulting

"Balanced HR has provided my business with HR support since June 2013. During this time Angela has provided targeted, proactive HR advice and documentation. She works hard to understand the challenges within my business and provides coaching on how to recognise and deal with HR issues. Working with Angela has made a positive impact on how I perceive the value of HR and how it can support and help progress my business. I would not hesitate in recommending Balanced HR to any business."   Smiths’ Hairdressing


Interim HR Support

Whether you have a key HR project to deliver but don't have the resource, require cover for a staff shortage or need additional support in an overstretched department, we can provide expert HR interim services - either for a specific project, on an ad-hoc basis or on a retainer.

What our client said:

"Angela worked with Freedom from Torture for 3 months as an HR Consultant while we were recruiting a permanent HR Director.  During that time she managed extremely competently 2 separate restructure consultations resulting in redundancies, whilst supporting me to make an excellent permanent appointment.  Angela mentored the HR Officer to upskill and manage the day to day HR processes, while reviewing and rewriting our HR policies.  In a short space of time, working only 2 days a week, Angela achieved a lot in moving our organisation to a more robust HR platform than we previously had.

I was very impressed with Angela's work and have no hesitation in recommending her for any HR consultancy or interim position".  Susan Munroe - Chief Executive at Freedom from Torture

 


Employment Contracts and Handbook

Hitachi Capital, a large financial services company, across a number of locations, asked us to review and update their existing HR documentation to ensure it was consistent across the business, legally compliant and benchmarked against industry standards and best practice.

We reviewed their contracts, offer letters, HR policies and procedures and employee handbook and standardised them for fairness and legal compliance across the business.

What our client said:

“Angela reviewed, revised and added best practice to the employee handbook, HR policies, standard contracts of employment and offer letters at the organisation where I am HR Director. She did so with a can-do attitude and common sense and delivered it within the timescales that I wanted. I would certainly hire her again." Hitachi Capital 


Acquisition of new business - TUPE transfer

We supported Halian Ltd to manage their TUPE transfer when they won a bid to provide IT consultancy services to a large global organisation. Working to tight timescales, undertaking appropriate due diligence and ensuring information and consultation requirements were adhered to led to successful transfer and integration of the employees.

What our client said:

“Angela managed and supported us through a particularly time sensitive TUPE project at very short notice. She professionally managed the project from start to finish, ensuring all steps of the process were undertaken in an efficient, conscientious and timely manner, with consideration to both the legal aspects and commercial impact on our business and she ensured that we were appropriately updated and involved in the project.

“Using Angela on the project meant that we could focus more of our time on our “day jobs” with the comfort of knowing that the process was under control. Our work with Angela has benefited me and my organisation beyond my expectations and has illustrated the value of engaging Angela’s expertise across other areas of the business. Angela - Thanks for all your great work to date - don't know how we would have managed the situation without you.” Halian Ltd
