We were referred to Guardian by a number of people and it's easy to see why. Jayne has helped us to plan and execute a relatively quick restructure, providing comprehensive support and guidance at every step. Throughout our restructure process Jayne has been on-site when we've needed her and on the phone whilst the supporting documentation supplied (whether that's scripts, forms or letters) are professional and easy to understand. As many MD's/CEO's will admit, it can be lonely at the top at times, yet Nickie, Jayne and all of the team at Guardian are able to draw on their wealth of experience to provide reassurance when it's needed - quite simply, they are an absolute joy to work with!
Sam KirkManaging Director
Jayne, Nickie and the team at Guardian provided invaluable support at a difficult time for the company. Working with our Board and providing independent and professional advice over the last three years, they have been impressive in their speed of response and accessibility at critical moments. Working with them has been very easy and knowing that their guidance is a phone call away has been a real support to me personally and the Board in general.
I was extremely impressed with the strategic partnership that Guardian provided to our organisation with implementing a difficult organisational change in our UK operations. We were supported by the entire team with our unique enquiries and needs that spread across general HR guidance, to legal advice, step by step procedures, employment agreements, formal letters, and onsite HR representation support around the clock. I personally dealt directly with two members of the team who exemplified professionalism, attention to detail, compliance and compassion. Our company was treated with the utmost of importance and with a sense of urgency that enabled us to reach our organisational goal efficiently and effectively.
Helena FerrariHead of Global HR
The White House Day Nursery (Notts) Ltd has used Guardian’s HR services for 2 years now. From the initial site visit in 2018 onwards the company has been efficient in their response, professional and offered a personal approach.
Their services have been invaluable from reviewing contracts and staff handbooks to guiding us through disciplinary procedures.
Sadly we had to make redundancies due to the covid-19 pandemic and Jayne, in particular, was incredibly supportive through very stressful circumstances. It was a situation that the company never imagined being in and we were expertly guided one step at a time by Jayne. It felt like our hands were being held all the way through.
There are so many complexities to employment law and mistakes can easily be made - out there on your own as a small independent business. Having the reassurance of advice and support at our fingertips gives us the confidence we are getting it right. We have learnt so much since working with this great team and look forward to many years of association with them.
It has been a real pleasure working with Joy and the team at Guardian HR. We are a small business and don't have a Full Time HR resource so rely heavily on external parties to support. Joy was very responsive and very practical in her advice and was an invaluable help at every stage of the process.
BGB have worked with Guardian for many years now, and have always found the service to be supportive and truly collaborative. Our contacts at Guardian really understand our business and our people, so it always feels like we’re working with trusted colleagues not just a service provider. We really wouldn’t be able to run our business effectively without them! Thanks especially go to Jayne, Bina, Nickie and Claire.
