We’ve always prided ourselves on being an award-winning HR consultancy business. Over the past few months the tally keeps on growing! We’re celebrating after scooping a clutch of top accolades. The company, which managed outsourced HR for leading North West businesses, won three prestigious national awards::

  • HR Consultants of the Year award for central England 2020/21 in the England Prestige Awards.
  • HR Consultancy of the Year – Corporate LiveWire Global Awards 2020.
  • Most Outstanding HR Services Provider in the UK 2020 in the Global Excellence Awards.
  • Most Trusted HR provider in the North West 2020 in the UK Enterprise awards.

These accolades celebrated small and medium-sized enterprises that thrived and demonstrated success over the past 12 months. Winners are selected via a two step process. Beginning with nominations, they were then judged on a range of criteria. This included marketing and branding, business growth methods, online and offline exposure, customer experience and innovative approaches. These awards followed others we received earlier this year::

  • HR Consultants of the Year award for central England – Prestige Awards, 2020/21.
  • Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday award April 2020.
