Expert HR that enables you to fulfil your goals

  • Optimisation of HR processes

  • 200+ years of unrivalled expertise

  • From employees to influencers

  • The culture for your vision

The leaders of the world’s largest organisations share a key understanding when it comes to sustainable and profitable growth: if you want to reach the top, you have to take your people with you.

We begin with a deep dive into the DNA of your business, ensuring it is underpinned by spectacular leadership, development and communication. We work in partnership to identify what will accelerate your business and then we really make a difference. These are just some of the ways our clients have won numerous awards, including being recognised regionally and nationally for being great employers and businesses!

The benefits in full

Our Strategic clients are not looking for a ‘yes-team’, they are looking to us to ask the big questions. Our first question is always, ‘what will success look like?’ and our second question is ‘what are you already doing and how are you doing it?’.

From there we can provide you with an overview of your organisation as a whole – from a 360-degree perspective via your people.

Because the way your team see your business is as important as the way your leaders see your business – after all who is looking after your customers?

The MAD in MAD-HR stands for Make A Difference.

This drives everything we do and we are proud to have helped clients refine the way they work.

You may already know which changes need to be made in order for your organisation to evolve and we can help you make them – but we can also bring a fresh perspective, using our expertise and combined HR-leadership experience of 200+ (!) years to identify further changes you can make.

Whether you have a specific goal in mind or you know where you need to be but need our expertise to get there – we can help.

We’ve made a difference to hundreds of businesses and would love to share our strategic HR success stories with you.

The changes you make will only make a positive difference if they are facilitated well.

We’ll work alongside you to implement change in a way that is positive and gets the right people on board at the right times.

From attending board meetings to providing training and coaching – as well as advising you on how and when to communicate with your teams to create the smoothest transitions or the most enthusiasm.

We have the experience and expertise to ensure that your organisation changes for the better and in a way that everyone – from your board members to your teams to your customers and stakeholders – notices.

"Our team is packed with expert consultants with real-life experience working in organisations like yours."
