I’ve spent a good amount of time with the Haines Watts People Services team and my experience has been outstanding. They’re so knowledgeable and are helping me massively with our business. I keep asking their advice and how to deal with things that are occurring and they’re guiding me through them like true professionals.Sue Jones, Churches Fire Security Limited
I’ve worked with the Haines Watts team over the past year. They really understand our business and the type and calibre of people we’re looking for. They provide us with excellent support in understanding our recruitment needs, our company culture and how we wish to be positioned, as an employer of choice.Dan Hancocks, Concredo Limited
Haines Watts skilfully tailored a program and an approach to suit our requirements and abilities of our company. This created a comfortable atmosphere for us to follow the Haines Watts process. Through this process we built the blue print that we are now using to grow the company. The workshops Haines Watts ran with us proved to be excellent value. We now have a clear vision of the future, with the tools and confidence to achieve it.Dave Pennock, Eclipse Sprayers
Haines Watts opened my mind to looking at my business in a different way. Although successful I was at the stage where I was looking to shape my business better – I needed a little support. They gave me an informal framework for seeing how my business was performing and enabled me to talk to other owner managed businesses who have similar challenges.Rob Quinn, Purity Productions
Haines Watts has acted as a useful mirror to our business. We’ve looked at how we operate, our strengths, and how we perceive ourselves. Whenever I ask a question, I know Haines Watts will present us with a range of scenarios and a view of the bigger picture, so we can make fully informed decisions. All information is given in plain English. As a result of Haines Watts’ support, we are heading into the next year with a renewed focus.James Broady, Central Roofing
