Gemma Redmond, Practice Manager, Bromhead Accountants, Plymouth 

 The work we have experienced so far has made a big impact on our firm. It has pulled us together as a team and helped to create a team focused culture. The individual coaching received has surpassed our expectations. We will continue to work with Apex to keep building on this.

Jackie O’Brien, Business Manager, The Body Camp.

I have been extremely happy with the service I have received from Apex HR. Lisa was my advisor and has been very helpful, providing excellent guidance and advice when required. I like the Apex HR ethos and approach and felt it aligned very well with our own company culture. Lisa helped to prepare our documentation with this in mind. I can’t recommend them highly enough.

I’ve been having management coaching sessions with Kevin to help improve my skill set both as a manager and as a mentor. Through the sessions we’ve had Kevin had given me detailed examples of practical thinking which I can use to better communicate and manage people. Through Kevin’s strong challenge strong support model I have found already that it can be easy to tame your own emotions and help understand others in difficult situations as well as day to day management.
Some of the main takeaways I have used already from our sessions are:
Avoiding rushing when discussing issues, taking my time slowing everything down and explaining my reasons for seeing something wrong as well as really listening to what the other person has to say has shown great results for me already when dealing with these sorts of situations.
Making the most of training : asking people to transfer what they learnt at training seminars to teaching other staff has multiple benefits such as switching the persons mindset from student to teacher and as a result of the training other staff member also learning from it.
Also not avoiding difficult conversations and addressing them helps both Manager and staff member from not getting into bad habits and creates a feeling of setting and adhering to standards.
Also the chimp paradox book is helping me to not only understand my own emotions and how to deal with them but also help other people do the same.

Kevin and the team at Apex HR have been a breath of fresh air. I have found the HR industry far too reactive to issues and trying to force templates and process. Apex challenge this with a thoughtful approach to team building, tackling challenges before they arise and treating employees as real people. Its been a pleasure to work with such a forward thinking company – highly recommended.

I have recently been working with Kevin and can confirm that he is a very passionate, driven, knowledgeable and inspiring person. I would without hesitation recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking for HR support was a difference. He is very much for the long term and focused on the performance and well being of the organisation.

 

At Apex HR, we believe in challenging the status quo when it comes to people at work. Outdated HR thinking and methods just won’t cut it in a rapidly changing and dynamic world. It is time for a new approach.
