Extremely professional

“I have known Sarah for over 8 years and when Calor required some additional support for its talent programmes and Development Centre, I had no doubt that Sarah at Loates Business Solutions Ltd could provide the high quality assistance that Calor would expect, and Sarah quickly arranged and secured the high quality assessment support we had requested. This support worked very well and the assessor was able to pick up the responsibilities quickly and was extremely professional, with both the depth and breadth of experience that added value to our process. We would certainly look for Loates Business Solutions Ltd to support us in the future.”

John Sanderson
HR Manager

Professional, understanding and a great listener

“Again another big thank you to LoatesHR for the support they have given Austin Community Enterprise Limited. This is our first time working with Gill Philips, and we are very pleased with the support that she has given us, she is professional, understanding and a great listener. Her extensive knowledge has helped to gained us a positive outcome. Thanks Gill”

Tracy Blackburn
Project Manager

Trusted voice of advice and experience

“Working as an extension to the team, Sarah has been a trusted voice of advice and experience to my growing business. She has given me the support and guidance I needed to expand my workforce through clear and straight-forward direction. I find Sarah to be knowledgeable, flexible and approachable.”

Laura Faulkner
Director

Very professional, friendly and always on hand

“We first heard of LoatesHR through a client of ours, and they came highly recommended. After now being one of their clients for 7 months we can see why! Matilda and the rest of the team are very professional, friendly and are always on hand to give advice when needed. They have also developed various documents for us and we couldn’t be happier with the results. LoatesHR are helping us to take our business to another level!”

Kathy Bennett
Manager

Responsive and professional

“I have known Sarah and the team at Loates Business Solutions for six months and during this time Sarah and her team have played an integral part in supporting us in our HR function. Sarah took time to quickly understand our business and developed a plan to review key documents. The team at Loates have provided their support and services to our charity on a pro bono basis, which we are especially grateful for as it is a challenge for us as a charity to buy in this specific function, although it is key to the professional running of the charity. The team are responsive and professional and we hope to have their continued support and expertise for the foreseeable future.”
