Lisa Looker, Brand Director, Haskins Garden Centres

Purple HR have recently been appointed to assist us with various recruitment vacancies across a number of disciplines. Their involvement in the process has been seamless and proactive and saved us lots of management time. We have quickly come to reply upon the service which deals with recruitment agents and candidates from the initial vacancy placement, through to offer documentation and candidate management. The service is prompt and reliable and suits our needs very well.

Paul Gough – MD, Intouch Accounting Ltd

My inbox is often full of HR news and legal updates. The update I ALWAYS read first is that from Purple HR and recommend you do the same! Purple HR cut through the legal jargon and gobbledygook to provide employers with easy to understand, clearly written advice and news. They will guide you easily and simply through the complex minefield of employment law. These guys are AWESOME!

Nicki Perry, HR Professional

I worked with Leanne during a period of change involving some complex HR issues at Berkmann Wine Cellars. I found her to be helpful, thorough and professional in every aspect of my dealings with her. She guided and advised me through some difficult conversations with sensitivity and respect to all parties, arriving at mutually acceptable solutions. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to any company looking to outsource their HR function.

Karen Hardwick, Director of National Accounts, Berkmann Wine Cellars

The “C” in our EPIC strategy stands for Collaborative and without key strategic partners being embedded with, and aligned to our objectives we cannot fully support the needs of our business and its clients. Purple HR supports our HR requirement both internally and to our clients and we are proud to work with their team as they always deliver their advice in a professional manner, on time and with a practical and solution based approach.

Ian Rodd, Ward Goodman

Having worked with Purple since April 2014, we have been delighted with the results – their care and attention has been much appreciated and is helping take our business to a new level. We have quickly come to realise the importance of having professional HR advice and the benefits that this brings to everyone involved in the business. We look forward to our continued working relationship with them and would recommend Purple to other businesses. Thank you

Matthew Strong, Managing Director, Rebbeck Brothers

I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with Hannah on a few occasions over the last 6 months posting advertisements for some key clients of Purple HR. Hannah has always been a fantastic contact there keeping me up to date with how the process is getting on and making sure everything is working as it should to make sure both Purple HR and their clients get the most out of our service.

I always look forward to catching up with Hannah as, not only is she always incredibly professional but also a kind an friendly client to be working with. Very much looking forward to working with Hannah a lot more over the coming months helping her deliver the brilliant service both her and Purple HR provide.

Adam Errington, Key Account Manager, Bluetownonline Ltd

I wanted to message you both to say a massive thank you for your brilliant support this year.

It’s been a stressful couple of months but you guys have always been there to support, advice and help is in such a professional manner and it’s greatly appreciated. Thank you both so much.

Mandy is extremely knowledge and a tremendously valuable resource for our company. We look forward to many more years working together.

Elio Auletta, David’s Bridal

What a professional and efficient service provided by the PurpleHR team. Their patience, guidance and support is outstanding and nothing is too much for an ask! They clearly know what their stuff!

Lauren Stoltzman, Associate Director, AG of C

Purple HR have supported us immensely. From attending our Careers Fairs, running sessions during our Futures Focus Day for Yr 11s and most recently coming in to work with our sixth formers. Not once have they said they cannot help. Indeed, quite the opposite-nothing is too much trouble. Fantastic support and our students are valuing and acting on the advice and guidance in terms of interview tips and techniques and feedback to CVs. Huge thanks to Hannah and team

Debbie Porter, CEIAG Coordinator, Poole High School

I had an extremely positive experience with Purple HR during a stressful employment situation. I received conflicting advice from many HR sources, it wasn’t until I spoke with Purple, that I felt that someone listened without trying to sell me a deal. Leanne went the extra mile to carefully consider my situation, and to compose a thorough and thoughtful response which helped me to resolve my situation in an enlightened and positive way. I am looking forward to working with Purple HR for all my HR needs.
