Kind words from our clients

“We would have no hesitation in recommending apple hr to any company who employs or is looking to employ staff. apple hr makes a daunting and overwhelming process manageable and easy to navigate.

Thank you to apple hr for your support and guidance over the past 12 months. You have helped us to ensure a good foundation for the future of our business & its employees. We appreciate your commitment and look forward to this partnership for many years”



“From the beginning, apple hr’s experts were highly attentive to our needs and took the time to understand our business and culture, helping us professionalise our people operations functions.

Thanks to their expert guidance, we have served and supported our talented team in ways we couldn’t have imagined. In short, this consultancy has been an invaluable partner in our journey, and we look forward to continuing our relationship for years to come”.



“I have always been more than happy with the support provided by apple hr. The team at apple have been flexible in meeting the specific requirements of our business.

Not only have they been dependable (providing weekly on- site support) but they have also really helped when HR queries have been raised by our clients – this expertise has helped me help my clients.

I also know that our employees here value the compassion and understanding that the apple HR team have shown when dealing with some personal and delicate people matters”.



Employing apple hr has brought a new lease of life to our business. Having put off the decision to outsource for too long, I now wish we had actioned years ago.

In today’s compliance driven world Kate has brought a sense of order to tackling our challenges – both setting targets and achieving them.

Kate’s high quality people skills and discretion have a created a calmness and confidence amongst staff that they have somewhere to turn when they need someone independent to listen and advise. A great decision and investment in ours and the team’s future.”



“I have worked with apple hr for over a year now and my main contact is Janet Schofield. I have found apple to be responsive and reliable at all times and they have given me a lot of support in dealing with a variety of challenges including refreshing and renewing contracts, redrafting policies and ad hoc HR advice on specific cases.

Janet in particular has been a great support to me. Her approach is supportive and caring and this is why I chose apple over other providers”.
