“I asked Core HR to assist me with some HR issues that were affecting my business. As a small business operator, I am not proficient in the legislation but am aware of the risks should we get it wrong. They quickly understood what our position was and offered sound advice and guidance to deal with the situation which ended with positive results all round. They responded quickly and even gave us a few pointers on how we could improve our processes in the future.  I’ll be using Core HR for advice and guidance in the future.”

-          Paul, Owner, Herne Bay Drycleaners

 

“I’d looked up some other companies online, but they were a bit slow to respond and they didn’t quite have what I needed. Core had the whole package I was looking for. They were fantastic – really quick responses and really clear in what we needed. They’re really good at making it simple. They have a wealth of knowledge. If you need something small to be drafted or written up, they’ve got someone for that. If you need some trickier legal HR advice, they’ve got that, too.”

-          Alice, Office Manager, AIM Altitude
