  • Robert HeskethRobert HeskethVetrica

    “Absolutely HR has been a breath of fresh air. They supported me through the subsequent legal process with my former advisers, with a very satisfactory conclusion. Absolutely HR spent a considerable amount of time getting to know my business, following which they completely re-drafted all the contracts for the staff, and wrote a very comprehensive handbook, specific to my needs. I have been delighted with Absolutely HR's service , supporting my business needs on every occasion. I would have no hesitation recommending Absolutely HR.”

  • Ruth McKayRuth McKayUNIQ Marketing and Design

    Andrew is a personable and professional HR expert. He has an in depth knowledge of HR and offers tremendously good value for money. He made the whole process of employment simple and straightforward. I would highly recommend his services particularly to SME companies who cannot afford expensive HR companies.

  • Ben CartwrightBen CartwrightUNIQ Marketing and Design

    Absolutely HR has provided HR support to UNIQ since we started in 2010 and whilst we have never had any staffing issues which have required Absolutely HR's help, I feel confident in the knowledge that we are always kept up to date with the latest employment law and that I can always pick up the phone to ask a question about the best way to deal with employees or contractors. Everyone should have an HR consultant and I would recommend you choose Absolutely HR.

  • Scott McLeanScott McLeanStirling Electrical Services Limited

    Always good advice and very good knowledge of current legislation.

  • Andrew RaffertyAndrew RaffertyRMS Plumbing & Heating

    Dear Andrew, Just recently I received a call from my distressed sister who required employment advice, immediately I thought of you. Within a few hours contact details had changed hands and already you were on the case with great support and reassurance which she needed at this difficult time. Due to financial circumstances you kept your costs to the bare minimum, which you didn't have to do. This was the second time I have sought help from you and once again you exceeded expectations. Even while on holiday you still kept in contact with my sister, which to me is over and above duty. Not only are you a good business person but you are also a great member of BNI and this is proof that it works. Thank you for your prompt service and excellent advice, you clearly know what your talking about. I wont hesitate in recommending your services to others.

    Kind regards Andrew Rafferty

  • Janet TorleyJanet TorleyPractical Marketing

    I haven't known Andrew for a long time but what an impact he has had. A more genuine guy you could not ask to meet. He works extremely hard, doesn't bulls**t, gives freely of his time and is an ace OK guy to deal with. Andrew is doing a lot of networking at the moment so if you meet him, spare a few moments to stop and talk to him. He is becoming very well connected.

  • Francesco AgusFrancesco AgusPicnic Coffee Shop

    Quality, timely and reliable HR Services for people who expect results from their HR department.

  • Caspar OdqvistCaspar OdqvistNordic Outdoor

    We have worked with Andrew and Lindsay for about 3 years. During this time, they’ve managed most of our HR, basically everything from hiring, issuing Contracts of Employment, doing reviews, advise staff on regulations and helping to dismiss or relocate staff.  During this time, I’ve found Andrew & Lindsay both resourceful and reliable and we have always managed to get the results we have been looking for.

    The main reason for using Absolutely HR for us was for peace of mind, HR and staff care is not what we are good at and with Absolutely HR we don’t have to be.

  • Mrs L E DrysdaleMrs L E Drysdale

    “I would like to thank Andrew and Lindsay Bourke at Absolutely HR for their time, assistance and excellent advice. Their attention to detail, and genuine concern really impressed me. They were attentive without being obtrusive and offered informed advice. They kept us informed of developments and were on hand regardless of time. They gave their professional opinion allowing us to make the right decisions and this allowed us to get satisfactory closure. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and if in the future we required their services, I would not hesitate to make them my first choice.”

    “I have been an accountant for over 30 years and up until last year I was able to deal with Contracts of Employment, Company Handbooks and so on, but the last year was significantly different from all of those other years put together. I asked you and Andrew to help me bring our Contracts up to date for the Team and what a difference you have made. I can sleep at night knowing that all my HR problems will be handled  professionally and by experts. I would have no hesitation in recommending Absolutely HR.”

    As a regional Regulated Financial Advice business we are used to red tape, however having Andrew & Lindsay provide us with step by step guidance on employment law and for more important staff issues when they occasionally arise has no doubt saved us time and resource as well as giving us comfort we follow the correct procedures.
