Who we work with
“Kelly and the team have been a huge asset to Zest, and for my own personal development within the business.
For Zest, they’ve helped with processes and procedures, company structure and reward and recognition. They’ve also been someone that the team can go to for advice and support.
For me personally they’ve been invaluable as I’ve moved into a more senior position by coaching, advising and guiding me. Even though they’re not in the office on a daily basis, they’re only a phone call away and always make the time to hear my issue, and work to find a solution together. ‘Together’ is key – they don’t always tell me the answer, they instead work with me to guide me to the answer myself, so next time I can tackle it alone.
They’re not afraid to push or challenge me either, which we all need! But with that, they’re also a real pleasure to be around, always positive and uplighting.
I highly recommend Kelly and the team, I wish we could have them in our office daily!”
Laura Devonald – Client Services Manager at Zest Digital
“HR Star started to get to know me, know the team and how we work. They identified where the gaps were, how we could improve and what we were doing well.
“They allowed the team to have a voice and someone to go to, while also giving me someone to speak to. They gave us a fresh perspective that’s allowed us to see areas we can improve and also recognise where we’re doing things really well.”
“I would definitely recommend HR Star,” said Alex. “If you’re a small business that’s grown like us and been in a similar position to ourselves where you’ve just got on with the job. You need more definition, so people know what they are doing and where they fit within the business to make sure you can hire and retain the best staff you can.”
Alex Minchin – Managing Director at Zest Digital
“With HR Stars’ help, we are really growing the business. It’s more professional and more organised, with better communication within teams and, importantly, between the teams. Most importantly however the staff can see the benefits and the improvement.
Having recently opened a new store it’s so important to know the staff are happy and engaged and know how valued they are. I know with HR Stars’ support that’s the case. I’m looking forward to seeing the changes come through and our managers are really grateful for the support.”
Alex Rose – Managing Director at Beards
“Kelly has become a trusted advisor and a key member of our management team. She’s a good source of advice and a great sounding board. She’s a great person to have on the board with us, to keep an eye on the people involved at all times.”
Working with the team is both challenging and rewarding. There’s a lot of variety in what we do with and for them, so there’s always something new to be doing and discussing.”
Michael Foster – Managing Director at Kate and Tom’s
