We pride ourselves on the personal service we deliver to employers. No anonymous telephone helpdesks or generic document databases here. Just proper face-to-face HR support from real people with actual names. People who you can get to know and trust, and who can be relied on to be there to provide practical assistance and a non-judgemental friendly face whenever things aren't going so well. People who in turn can really get to know you and your business, and so fully understand how best to help you achieve your goals. HR support like it should be.

Impressed with their professionalism

“We used LoatesHR to carry out an assessment of our current HR polices and to provide a solution to ensure we are compliant. Rosie and the team were thorough and efficient in providing the material we needed to ensure this was the case. There were several discussions and amendments to the documents but the steps taken to reach the final product were quick, easy to understand and well documented. I have been impressed with their professionalism and consequently, I have referred several clients to the team.”

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.”

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.”

Excellent, Personable and Professional!

We have been partnering with Matilda at Loates for several months now, her advice and support is second to none. It’s great to be able to discuss people challenges and have her external perspective; she acts as a true business partner. The whole team at Loates are great and we value their input greatly. Highly recommended!

Sensible, logical and pragmatic

“Sarah has been our HR adviser for 4 years. Sarah works as part of our team and brings her great personality, excellent knowledge and track record of experience to the business. We have always found Sarah’s support and advice to be sensible, logical and pragmatic and have no hesitation in recommending her.”
