“Massive belated thank you to Simon Martin for delivering a tailored session for our managers at Phoenix on employment law and HR challenges. A really engaging session providing fundamentals and stories of where things can go wrong if you don’t keep employees at the heart of your organisation. Great to be back working together again – creating healthy work cultures”
“We have used Narrow Quay’s retained HR service for the last year, and it has been transformational for us. Our senior managers now feel supported when navigating some often complex HR issues, and know that there is a professional yet empathetic voice at the end of the email or phone. The advice provided has been nuanced to our organisation, pragmatic, in-depth and salient. Requests have been responded to in a very timely way and frequent communication over the phone is always much welcomed – it is much easier to talk HR issues through. We are delighted with our relationship with Narrow Quay and look forward to another year of working together.”
