What our clients have to say about Simple HR

Lindsay Blacker

Kool Kidz after school club

Louise and her team helped our organisation deal with a complicated employment issue. The high standard of service and advice which we received was invaluable and helped us to successfully keep our organisation from being taken to an employment tribunal. Everyone was very helpful and professional and we would have no hesitation in recommending Simple HR to anyone.

Susan Hunter

Business Manager, Women’s Aid

Our organisation first contacted Simple HR as we have no HR expertise within our small organisation . Originally we employed Simple HR to help us deal with a difficult grievance process, this was resolved quickly ensuring the service did not suffer as a consequence of the grievance.

Due to the high standard of service received we have retained Simple HR as our HR advisers. There have been many occasions where we have sought the advice of Simple HR mainly through Kerry Lindsay including the implementation of a staff handbook which incorporated and updated many policies and procedures and creating more up to date staff contracts.

Simple HR also supported us through a  tender process in which we were successful in doubling the size of our organisation. Simple HR then provided advice and practical help in  dealing with a difficult TUPE situation.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Simple HR.

Managing Director

Tradimar Limited

Simple HR are a refreshing alternative to other HR providers. They deliver real time solutions, on demand. Their approach is highly professional and personalised to our business. We now consider them to be an integral part of our management team.

Simon Ross

CEO, Exterity Ltd

Exterity approached Simple HR in 2007 to ensure we were meeting all our minimum legal requirements in terms of HR. Over the last 6 years they have moved from initially providing us with a tailored company handbook and updated contracts, then assisting with final interviews and now they manage the whole recruitment process (including selecting and dealing with recruitment consultants), they now also help us identify HR issues and training needs and then either creating or finding most appropriate solutions or training course to meet that need.

As well as having an experienced HR person on the end of the phone at all times in the last year we have to moved to having someone form Simple HR in our offices every Thursday which means staff have someone to speak to if they want to and importantly for the business in enforces a focus on HR tasks a minimum of once a week.

Simple HR have become our HR department and a very good one at that.

I would highly recommend them to anyone as they have a depth of skills that means if one person is on holiday you are not floundering about wondering what to do in any situation, they are business focussed so while they will ensure you stay on the correct side of the law if you have a problem they will find a solution not tell you it is not possible and most importantly they are a pleasure to work with.

Jim Stewart

Managing Director, Click Netherfield Limited

Simple HR have worked with my business for years now, providing a range of services including HR advice, recruitment, one-to-one employee mentoring, facilitation of on and off-site staff development sessions, etc. The invaluable advice and representation has also helped us prevail in industrial tribunal situations when it’s been necessary.

I consider Simple HR to be an extremely valuable resource to my business, and would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other companies.

James Macsween

Macsween of Edinburgh

I would say that it is Simple HR’s passion and enthusiasm that initially led to us engaging with Simple HR. To them legal compliance is a given and the value comes from having an HR expert that really understands my business, and they take the time to get to know our business every time they are onsite.

Working with the team has backed up the position that if HR can’t show a return on investment they should not be part of the business. The peace of mind that they have given me has enabled me to focus on the longer term goals and ambitions.

They have partnered me through tough times, including winning an Employment Tribunal for us and consistently delivers commercial and highly effective advice and support.

Mark Jackson

Technical Manager, Macsween of Edinburgh
