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, JW Crawshaw 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. 

Chris Morris, Jayfort Security Services Ltd

We had a human resources emergency late on a Friday afternoon, and although we knew what we wanted to do, we needed some guidance on how to do it! 

We called Lynn and after a 10 minute chat on the phone we had a clear and concise set of actions to follow.

Lynn was a calming influence in a fast moving and unpredictable sequence of events. I have no problem in recommending her services to anyone with staff, our only regret is that we didn't speak to Lynn sooner to have these tools available to us before any issues occurred. 

Anyone who employs any staff should speak to Lynn to make sure they have the correct documentation and procedures in place. 

Neil Grimshaw, Ravenhall Risk Solutions Ltd

Just a brief note to recognise the important contribution you have made to Pressure Tech. Your 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. 

You 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 that you have established and the coaching you have provided to the management team means that everyone understands what is expected of them and is focused on success. 

We will certainly be continuing to use your service and will have no hesitation in recommending you to other businesses. 

Steve Yorke-Robinson, Pressure Tech Ltd

My Company employed the services of Lynn of Pennine Business Partners to act as our consultant and 'in house' HR department.

Recently we have had to rely heavily on Lynn to assist us in a matter of employment legality and all the associated required procedures we need to have in place to protect our Company interests. Lynn has taken away the stress, doubts and burden of dealing with the matter and is looking after the situation perfectly. 

I can only say that i would not hesitate to recommend her company services to anyone with employees and contractual obligations to honour in this regard. 

Nicholas Beresford, SCM Rooftech Ltd

I would like to thank you for the support you have given our business over the last 12 months. Your ongoing coaching has increased our knowledge and capability to manage our staff and helped us to identify and consider alternative approaches. You have helped us to develop our people management strategy to meet the needs of the business. 

In addition, the training you have provided to our management team has increased their confidence in dealing with staff issues and ensures that they follow a fair and appropriate course of action, having considered all the options. 

We look forward to your continued support in the future and are happy to recommend you to our business associates. 

Richard Sym, Broadstone Mill Shopping Outlet Ltd

I appointed Lynn to design a bespoke appraisal package to get the best out of my growing team. My previous way of appriasing my staff needed a major re-vamp and i required a multi-faceted system that both my managers and i could use. 

We talked entensively about each different role and Lynn helped me identify which areas were of key importance and relevance for each role. Based on this Lynn developed a comprehensive yet easy to follow system which is great as it allows me to measure the development of my staff which i find very useful. As well as this, it has vastly improved the communication of the whole team and most importantly i have started seeing an improvement in the performance of my staff. 

I am strongly passionate about creating a highly enthusuastic and fun working environment with the goal of making my staff happy and enthused about work. Your appraisal system is certainly helping me in continuing to achieve this goal. 

I would strongly recommend Lynn Bradley and Pennine Business Partners to any of my contacts. 

Moin Valli, Valli Optical Ltd

I write to thank you for your services in assisting us in relation to an extremely delicate employment issue at Walker Singleton. This was a potentially time consuming and costly exercise for the Company, however, following your intervention we reached an amicable settlement with the staff member in a short timeframe and at minimal expense. 

This was a particularly sensitive staff issue and we had to balance the business needs against the enployee's personal circumstances outside of the workplace, which presented a real dilemma for us. 

Lynn quickly assessed the situation and set out the respective legal positions, but also came up with a pragmatic, amicable solution which was accpetable to both sides and a potentially tricky and costly employment issue was resolved in a very short time frame. 

I would have no hesitation in using your services again and i comment Pennine Business Partners to my business contacts.
