Testimonials

Some nice things my clients have said…

During the past 10 years Jon has provided a consistently high level of professional service, not only advising and guiding on those ‘knotty’ problems that occur occasionally, but also immeasurably improving our internal understanding and the skills required to handle day to day HR issues.

Jon is smart and easy to work with. His work reflected our culture and style, was produced to a high standard, on schedule and on budget. We will continue to work with him on HR issues and would happily recommend him on to anyone.

As a company that has grown significantly in 3 years, Jon has provided practical advice, dealing with all our queries promptly and has set up in-house workshops where we were able to gain a greater understanding and improve our working knowledge of HR matters. Jon’s drafted all our employment documentation and supported us through a TUPE process. As a result, we have greater confidence in dealing with any employee issues that may arise, but also with the knowledge that Jon is always on hand to give further advice and support if it’s needed. Jon is calm, knowledgeable and practical in the advice he offers us and we have full confidence in our HR management.

You can only truly appreciate quality over time, and this chap is quality. I have known Jon for almost ten years now having been introduced to him via a networking colleague; “You must meet Jon, he’s one of the good guys”. They were right. Jon is not only a highly skilled and experienced operator in the world of HR he is also one of the most generous networkers I have ever met. Having worked with some the best solicitors and most successful employers in the region John has an enviable track record of getting the job done in all areas of employment; team engagement and development, compliance & procedures as well as the dark and murky world of special investigations. He has assisted three of my clients/friends to a more than satisfactory conclusion with discretion, good humour and real expertise.

I had the pleasure of working with Jon on a particularly difficult and sensitive HR issue in one of my portfolio companies. Jon was brought in by the company to mediate a grievance brought against the company. Jon did an outstanding job in bringing together the different parties, piecing together a succinct but thorough review and analysis of the situation and events, and then presenting his findings and proposals for resolving the issue.

I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Jon and his services.

I have worked with Jon (and Caliam) on numerous HR matters and he is a pleasure to work with. Jon brings a wealth of experience on HR matters and he is both thorough and pragmatic in his approach. Jon’s experience is such that he is able to manage difficult and sensitive matters effectively, with absolute professionalism and he is also extremely responsive, something that is so often required with complex and tricky employee relations issues. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jon for both generalist HR support and his specialist expertise – investigations into Grievance and Disciplinary cases, Hearing Appeals and managing other tricky HR processes such as Redundancy.

Jon was engaged earlier last year to drive some key HR projects on an interim/standalone basis. During this time he immersed himself fully into the business, quickly picking up the particular commercial and workforce aspects of the sector and our business. He developed and implemented several high level HR projects including the restructure of certain functions of our UK businesses, and providing advice to all levels, including the executive team, on various complex HR matters. The advice and handling of these projects by Jon meant he became an incredibly well liked and trusted advisor and member of the business. This was an incredibly busy time for us and we are really grateful for his professional assistance and services during that time.

Jon did a fantastic job helping our Company during a very sensitive time on a few employee related matters to include redundancy. He did an excellent job managing each situation, was professional, thorough in his communication and delivered on time! I would leverage Jon as a resource in the future. His knowledge of UK law and practices was invaluable! Thank you again, Jon for all your hard work.
