I approached Pennine Business for support me with an issue I had with an employee.  After they helped deal with the issue, I engaged them to provide ongoing HR support.

I have been delighted with the results.  They have formalised our HR documentation and procedures and supported my Management team through a number of complex employment issues.  Plus, they have implemented a very effective recruitment strategy that has not only reduced our costs, it has provided us with some high calibre staff.

Pennine Business Partners have proven to be very flexible to meet the needs of my business.  They are very knowledgeable in the field of HR and always conduct themselves in a very professional manner.

Craig Simcock, Director, Simprint

Pennine Business Partners have provided HR support for several years and were our provider when I joined the Union.  They have helped us tremendously over the last 12 months by expertly guiding us through a number of issues including redundancy and an unfair dismissal claim.

We have benefitted greatly from their support with staffing issues and we have seen very positive results in attendance, sickness and performance.

Their experienced, professional and efficient service is second to none.  They are a pleasure to work with and I would 100% recommend them.



Julie Moss, Head of Operations, South Yorkshire Credit Union

Having known Lynn for a number of years it was natural for us to look to Pennine Business Partners for HR support when we became dissatisfield with our incumbent provider.

We have been impressed with the support and service we have received right from the start.  They have ensured that all our processes and documentation are in place and our HR support now flows smoothly - helping us keep our employees engaged and staff turnover low.

Lynn and her team keep calm in a crisis and her strategic thinking is imperative for future business planning.

Rachel Gough, Valerie Holmes Property Lawyer

Pennine Business Partners make an important contribution to our business. Their ongoing support and guidance has helped us to achieve our growth objectives and to develop a team that is capable of taking Pressure Tech forward into the future. 

Lynn and her team have helped us to establish Key Performance Indicators that enable me to manage the business effectively without getting involved in every aspect. The performance review programme they established and the coaching provided to the management team means that everyone understands what is expected of them and is focused on success. 

Steve Yorke-Robinson- MD, Pressure Tech

With so many remote locations, it’s vital that we have good processes in place to manage our people. Since we appointed Pennine Business Partners in January 2016 they have made a positive difference to our business, running individual training sessions and individual meetings. Their BreatheHR software helps us keep track of employee data, performance reviews, staff absence and holidays. The great thing about Pennine Business Partners is they get things done.

Rachel Withers - MD, Student Facility Management Ltd

I originally approached Pennine Business Partners for support with an HR issue which Lynn dealt with in a very thorough and professional manner.  

We then engaged Michelle for Health and Safety support and we are now dealing with Steve to develop an e-commerce website and more targeted marketing for our shops and catering division. 

I have been impressed by the quality of services and support provided in all three areas of the business. 

John Crawshaw, John Crawshaws Ltd

I'm writing to thank you for the expert help and extremely high level of personal service provided to us recently. 

When faced with a complaint of bullying and verbal abuse we were determined to deal with the issue promptly and with the correct level of sensitivity. 

After spending a whole day of writing, scrapping and re-writing letters, our Managing Director (who is usually not lost for works) turned to you for help. And help you certainly did, producing a masterpeice of a letter stating in the most diplomatic terms that while we valued our relationship with the client, we could not allow such behaviour towards our staff. 

I am pleased to be able to tell you that the matter has now been brought to a satisfactory conclusion. 

I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting a top quality HR service that you can absolutely depend on. 

Thank you once again.
