Testimonials

I would like to give the following testimonial for Carol Scott:

I met Carol at a local networking group and as soon as we got chatting I knew that we would get along great! I did have an ulterior motive to start up a conversation with her as I had a HR issue that I needed her advice on.

I recommended Carol to our committee and we decided to use Carol’s services. Often small businesses find it difficult to see the value in HR services but I firmly believe that a small investment in Carol’s wealth of knowledge has been a lifeline to our charity. Our HR issue is now fully resolved and we are looking to the future with brand new, up to date and infallible employment contracts.

I found Carol to be extremely professional, friendly and flexible. Above all I completely trusted Carol’s judgement. I would happily recommend Carol in the future.

Not being a big HR fan, I am pleased to say that Carol is someone I can hand all our HR issues over to and know that she will fix them or make them go away! I don’t always agree with the legislation and the amount of work generated by HR, but I know the problems it can cause if it is not dealt with in the correct way.

Carol has worked with us since 2007 and she has helped us on numerous occasions, always dealing with whatever we give her promptly and professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone needing assistance with HR.

Carol takes time and shows bags of interest and enthusiasm to understand and appreciate how your business works. Has the ability to communicate and interact effectively at all levels in the organisation and adapt her approach accordingly, thereby being the perfect person to deal with both the MD to the floor operative.

We engaged Carol in 2004 initially to advise us with design and implementation our employment contracts, Employee handbook and other necessary policies and procedures. Since our initial contact we have utilised Carols services across a range of HR / Personnel topics and have always found her to be both knowledgeable and professional. In areas outside her normal sphere, Carol is always more than willing to undertake the research and / or deal with fellow professionals to provide the best solution to the client.

Being able to look at things from an impartial 3rd party perspective can, at times, make issues and challenges that we as business owners often see as grey or very emotional, very black and white.

Carol is more than capable of assisting and supporting you run your own HR / personnel section or being left to look after the whole function. For the many years of good service, we would not hesitate in recommending Carol to anyone who required these specialist services.

I have been able to recommend Carol to a range of businesses and individuals who have sought a realistic solution to employment issues.

Unlike many HR professionals who can only quote from the scriptures, Carol understands how to make employment legislation work for the good of the organisation and the individual.

She has a “can do” attitude which oftens helps employers see the challenge in a new light and she can lead them, step by step through the solution.

HR is made unnecessarily difficult by those who wish to push up their professional fees, Carol keeps it simple.
