Testimonials

“I have had the pleasure of working with Leonie previously in Kwik-Fit and needed some support within Parker Building Supplies and the group and I was delighted to work with her again on a consultancy basis. Leonie has over the previous months supported me in the day to day projects in flight and the variety of projects ranged from streamlining of processes across different businesses in the group, aligning policies and procedures and other areas such as benefits and compensation etc. I was particularly impressed by how quickly Leonie understood the culture at the Independent Builders Merchant Group and how respectful she was of it. HR can be a delicate area in business (especially in this industry) as it can be very ‘new’ to this type of a workforce but Leonie always handles situations both professionally and empathetically. Leonie is the perfect HR extension for any business no matter how big or small, she’s adaptable, knowledgeable and most importantly a really great person to work with”

“Professional, strategic and commercial in her approach, I can honestly say Leonie has the perfect balance between delivering results and being supportive, approachable, empathetic and understanding what matters. She’s also someone who is happy to roll her sleeves up and get stuck in when needed. She was instrumental in improving overall capability in the organisation through her strong leadership, encouragement and guidance to her team of Regional HR Business Partners. Her strategy resulted in the implementation of a number of successful initiatives such as improved systems and on boarding procedures, various employee engagement projects and improved and health and well-being support for staff. This lead to achievement of some challenging business objectives such as reduced labour turnover and sickness absence levels.”

“I have known and worked with Leonie for just over 10 years. When I first became an operations manager Leonie spent a lot of time with me and was a big part of my success. Leonie would spend 1-2 days per week with me offering support and advice on a whole variety of HR issues. Much of our time was spent holding 1 on 1 reviews which included target setting and follow up. Her instructions and advice to myself and the employees was clear and was always aimed at getting the best outcome for all concerned. My HR knowledge was very limited in the early days but Leonie was happy to explain processes to me in a way I understood and always answered any questions I had. I will always be thankful for her patience and support she gave me and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for HR support”
