Success through People

We provide practical and cost effective solutions to help your organisation. We can help your business in a number of ways:

  • Project Work
  • Auditing your HR and Recruitment
  • Alternatives to Appraisal


Successful projects to date include Job Evaluation, HR Strategy, Employee Engagement and Skills Audits (training needs analysis).


Our thinking is always innovative, we don't simply go through the motions and we always look for the solution that is right for your business. We can engage with you on a flexible basis - some clients need as little as one hour of support whilst others want ongoing or retained support (Please contact us for prices).




  • HR Strategy
  • Job Evaluation and Salary Benchmarking
  • Recruitment Diagnostics and Improvement
  • Employee Relations (disciplinary, grievance)
  • Employment Policies
  • Performance Management - Alternatives to Staff Appraisal

Auditing your HR and Recruitment

Not sure about your HR obligations? The best place to start is with a mini audit. Don't worry this isn't painful, it's merely to find out your requirements so we can add real value through HR. Any subsequent work is therefore bespoke and suited to your business.

Is the Tickbox Exercise not working? Alternatives to appraisal...

Traditional appraisals are the cornerstone of many company performance and staff development frameworks. They've been around for so long that the appraisal has become a common business term. Unfortunately many of us fail to question their effectiveness and consequently many organisations fail to try and create meaningful performance improvements. We become blase about the staff who don't seem interested..."It's one of those things" we tell ourselves.

We don't think so. Our approach is based on practical experience and practical solutions which draw upon social science theory. We work with you to create systems and solutions for you which improve the performance of your business.

How do we do this?
  1. First of all we work with the company to understand the real performance problems.
  2. We then work with you to put in place the correct solutions - be they fit for purpose processes or training packages.
  3. Lastly we put in measures so you know the work has really added value.
