As a young company we needed to ensure that the procedures we had in place for our fast growing team were not only compliant but were also tailored to our company values. I was aware of apple hr’s work with larger established companies but was delighted that they were able to tailor their services to suite the needs of our smaller business.
We not only received good advice on the implementation of policies and procedures and bespoke documentation, but we now have good foundations on which we can build great employee relations.
Employing Kate 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 and 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 worked with Kate for a short period during 2015, and really enjoyed working with her. She has the ability to understand business issues and work with business leaders to reach a resolution quickly and effectively. She can drive change through an organisation at pace, is great at building relationships, has high levels of resilience and she approaches things in a really calm mature way which is a real asset to any organisation.
I really look forward to working with Kate in the future.
It has been of great benefit to ask apple hr to work on our compliance to the new auto enrolment regulations regarding pensions and for all aspects of a support for a small sized business. Kate Appleyard brings a high level of professional skill and knowledge to our company and her wide ranging experience enables a multitude of potential pitfalls to be avoided before they arise. An excellent decision to engage apple hr for all our personnel needs and requirements.
