Phil Newton Managing Director – The Skills Shop Ltd

During the past 12 months, Skills Shop has had to adapt to different ways of working in order to thrive and not just survive.  As the Coronavirus lockdown  progressed it meant making some tough decisions regarding HR.

I knew I needed to speak with a local specialist who could be discreet and whom I could implicitly trust. Having known Chrissy from Turnstone HR for over 4 years, this was the obvious choice.

Over the past few weeks Chrissy has been on-hand to guide me through the fog of HR even facilitating a staff meeting to the point where an agreement has been reached which safeguards the future of Skills Shop as well as the employment of staff.

If you know of any business that has HR concerns then seeking advice from a HR consultancy firm like Turnstone HR is a must.

I cannot thank you enough Chrissy for your sound advice, professional service and quick turnaround which turned a potential scary conversation into a win win for team Skills Shop.

Thanks Chrissy
