Testimonials - HR Consultants & Advisors
Simon makes the complicated simple within the field of people related legislation, policy and or advice. He gives confidence and assurance that the outcome is fair, principled and actionable. Simon has a ridiculous amount of current knowledge, he is a great listener and very supportive therefore allowing exceptional business focused conversations to take place and as appropriate issues or concerns to be allayed. Simon will be an exceptional asset to any person requiring HR related advice.
I have always found Simon to be an invaluable source for HR support and his knowledge is second to none. With employment law becoming more complex, you need someone to rely on when asking for advice. I have found that Simon has a pragmatic approach which is easy to understand and simple to apply.
I employed’ Simply About People’ when I was Commercial Director of a local Building Society to provide a full benchmarking solution for the Society’s entire workforce. Having worked with Simon previously, I was confident that not only did Simon have the wide ranging HR expertise to deliver the solution, but also it would be delivered on time and cost effectively. It was!! Vital, when considering using an external HR consultancy, is the ability to not only demonstrate to the decision makers (Board of Directors in the project for me) the value and benefits, but also to be able to win the confidence of staff, who can be sceptical. Simon is rare amongst consultants I have come across in being equally comfortable and convincing with all levels of stakeholders. If you want all the buzz words and high brow philosophy then look elsewhere, however if you want in depth technical knowledge, cost effective straight talking solutions then you should consider Simon and Simply About People.
Simon is a professional, self motivated and determined colleague. He is extremely knowledgeable and articulates complex matters in an easy to understand manner. He's respected at all levels and a pleasure to work with.
