Our Story & Values

Having worked in Human Resources Management for most of their working lives, Founder Peter Lawrence, and Co-Director, Rod Lee, saw a gap in the market; to provide the high quality Operational and Strategic HR Support to Small & Medium Sized Businesses that is enjoyed by larger corporates. 

We believe People Management expertise provides a key competitive advantage for SME businesses, and that many smaller companies do not have the resources and depth of expertise needed to manage the Human Resources function and this can hinder growth. 

Our Vision

Our vision is to provide expertise, drawn from experience with leading international companies establishing us as the "Go-To" experts in Operational and Strategic HR support. Our ambition is to become a well thought of, and well recognised brand, for all things related to People Management and Development.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide HR support to our Clients, and to help them get the best from their people.  

Our Values 

Commitment – we commit to meeting, or exceeding your expectations; we will do a good job, on time and within the agreed budget.  

Attitude - we retain a positive attitude and work relentlessly and tirelessly for and on behalf of our clients.  

People  -  motivated and committed people provide sustainable competitive advantage - we help clients get the best from their people.  

Innovation  we bring innovative approaches to help you address age-old people problems, seeking first to listen and understand before proposing a solution. 

Talent - Recruiting, Retaining and Developing Talent is the essence of our business. 

Added Value – we provide a value for money proposition that is hard to match. We may not be the cheapest but our unrivalled expertise and commitment means that we are the best value for money in the HR Consultancy market.
