“Emma provides an outstanding service. We have utilised Emma’s expertise across a range of topics and found the advice to be quick, efficient and to the point. I have no hesitation in recommending Emma and the quality service she provides.”
Adam Paris, Chief Operating Officer, Datacenter People
“Emma provides a superb service, she is clear thinking, highly knowledgeable and very flexible and has provided high quality guidance for us in a range of complex situations. She is to be highly recommended.”
Vicki Airs, Independent Consultant, Self-Employed
“I was recommended to Emma as an alternative to expensive solicitors and HR companies completely messing up employment issue. Emma and her colleagues are reliable, professional and outstanding value for money for any organisation that cannot justify their own HR department ( and probably a better alternative for those that do). I’m often asked to provide recommendations on LinkedIn and don’t like doing so but in this case I have no problem in shouting her name from the rooftops. Partners of ours that have employed her following my advice have been just as enthusiastic!”
Richard Artus, Vacant Space Management
“After years of searching for an efficient HR company, we found HR Initiatives and haven’t looked back. HR Initiatives are very supportive and work to simplify the complicated.”

Barbara Howard, Project Director at Stevenage Haven

“We have been using the services of Penny and HR Initiatives for many years. I can certainly recommend their services and the fixed fee approach.
