When it comes to companies that offer HR advice and consultancy, there are lots of businesses out there that claim to offer the right support. But having worked with Positive People HR for over three years now, I don’t think there’s any other company that could have been as professional and supportive as Paul and the team have been over the years.

From day one, they have been part of our business. Not just as an HR consultancy … but as an extension of our team. Their knowledge and focus on delivery is second to none, and knowing they’re on hand whenever we need them gives us the reassurance that we have experts to give us the answers and advice we need straight away.

Paul and the Positive People HR team have been with us from the start of our business journey and helped us to create the foundations of our people strategy in those early days. Since then we have grown to a team of over 50 people and their continued support of our organisation has ensured we have been able to retain, develop and grow our talent over all those years.

I Would just like to express my gratitude for the professional advice and support you gave to me in respect of my employee contracts & handbooks that you have compiled for my business. Your depth of knowledge on this subject and awareness of major changes in legislation and their impacts on the accuracy of the documents is second to none.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you to clients and colleagues.

I found Positive People HR through a recommendation from a friend and they were brilliant. Paul was extremely approachable and professional. I was able to discuss the needs we had from a contract and the benefits we wanted to give our employees. Paul in return was able to tell me what I legally had to provide and the potential pitfalls ahead. From one meeting Paul was able to gain the insight into what was needed and then go away and produce a contract and employee handbook for us. The whole procedure was very quick and professional.

It was such a relief to know someone had the experience and knowledge to provide us with the right advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending Positive People HR to anyone who needs HR advice or services. I will certainly be using their services again for any other HR issues I have.

Although I have only known Paul for the past six months the work he has delivered for me has been of an excellent standard. He has been delivering a couple of key projects for the business including a total reward review in our operations function and also supporting the business to be ready for our up and coming Investors in People re-assessment. He has been focussed on understanding the needs of the business and then ensuring that actions are captured, delivered and the project driven forward.

Prior to Paul working for me he was the Director of HR for the group and carried out a generalist role leading a team of HR and learning professionals to deliver a high quality service to the business. In this role he reported to the CEO and supported all the Executive Team on the people strategy. The strategy that Paul developed supported the business in the development of its culture and accumulated in the business being awarded the highest accolade of Investors in People Gold.

Paul is a very credible and approachable individual who maintains professionalism at all times, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to support any business who wants to create a positive culture for its people.

As part of our continued improvement we felt the time was right to outsource our HR.

Paul came to see me and was really, professional, helpful and informative. After providing a free audit of our policies and contract of employment Paul suggested appropriate changes and revamped our handbook and policies ensuring that we have a smooth induction for new starters and that employee’s at JHR have all the information and support they need. The quality of the documents provided by Positive People HR was of a high standard and delivered within the timescales we agreed.

As of 2016 I have decided to work with Paul on a retained basis and Paul keeps me updated as to any changes in employment law and is always at the end of the phone for any HR advice.

I would not hesitate to recommend Paul and his business to any potential clients.

At J’s Plasterers we are constantly striving to move our business forward and so I approached Positive People HR to draw up contracts for our Employee’s, Contractors and Apprentices.

They spent a lot of time with me finding out about our business and what our requirements were and their attention to detail was second to none. Paul was extremely professional at all times and even suggested certain things that I had not considered.

I have been overjoyed with the service we received from Positive People HR and I have and will continue to recommend Paul to others.

Paul came to LCF Law initially for a project to integrate the 25 staff joining us. He came up with a project plan which was approved and implemented smoothly. He took time to understand our business needs and the personalities and geared the training accordingly.  He is universally liked, always professional, has a wealth of experience of pretty much every HR scenario you can imagine, and will always come up with multiple solutions to HR problems and projects.

He kept us informed on a weekly basis of his previous week’s achievements and his plans for the forthcoming week.  He is flexible and willing to fit in around the needs of the business, regardless of location.

After the merger, Paul’s second project was to propose a revised appraisal and reward system, which he presented to the board and it was approved ,it is about to be rolled out firm-wide.  He has arranged training and documentation which is all of the highest standard.

Paul helped us to recruit a HR assistant and will remain with us for a day a month over the next year to ensure that the HR function and strategy is of the highest standard.

Paul managed two projects for LCF Law in 2015/16. His attention to detail is faultless. His ability to relate to and support individuals throughout the business ensured the projects were completed successfully. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul and Positive People HR.
