See What My Clients Say

I recently had a HR situation develop which I didn’t know how to handle and Kathryn provided practical advice which resolved the situation quickly. I also realised through talking to Kathryn that I needed employment contracts for my staff and she implemented a solution that met with current legislation and protected my business. Kathryn also provided us with a simple Employee Handbook which means that my employees now know where to look for information, rather than asking me, and it gives me peace of mind that they all receive exactly the same information, avoiding confusion. The service I have received has been efficient and friendly and I would certainly recommend Kathryn to guide you in the right direction or for reviews of your current contracts of employment.
