Having dealt with The People Shed on many occasions and with different staff I can say their expertise and knowledge is second to none. A pleasure to work with such a professional company who are reliable and most importantly down to earth.

Anthony B, Business owner

The People Shed offer honest, clear and concise advice. They’re business focused with excellent commercial awareness but they’re on your level, there’s no ambiguity, just simple and logical proposals. Having worked with the girls personally in another business, I know their positive attitudes and willingness to help is ingrained within them.

I used Rachael as an emergency as I was at breaking point. She was very professional, calming and fully explained everything we could do. I will definately be using Rachael going forward for any HR related issues.

Very supportive company, always just a phone call away and always happy to help. Have supported us massively with a variety of HR issues. From offering us templates and guidance to just being there to discuss something out of the ordinary.
