” When it came to hiring my first full-time employee, Sonia from Event HR was an absolute Human Resources Godsend. Within a matter of minutes of my initial enquiry, Sonia had already been in touch to arrange an initial call and in less than a week I had all of the customised policies, procedures and contracts that I required to move forwards as a business. All of this was done with a constant sense of reassurance from Sonia and her clear, concise and easy to understand advice and top tips were invaluable. If you too are looking for dedicated, pro-active and professional HR support then I’d recommend Sonia from Event HR in a heartbeat.”

” I found Sonia from Event HR when researching what I would have to do to take on my first ever employee. The best part about working with her is how much resources she has available to share with you that reduces the amount of time you have spend on creating HR documents. That fact that she is events industry specific is also really useful too. There’s no need to explain to her what is unique about employing events staff etc. Working with Sonia helped me to get an understanding of my duties as a business owner and most importantly how to implement HR policy in a scaleable way….It has given me the confidence to go ahead and recruit and hire knowing the business is compliant and therefore secure.”

“I have been a wedding planner and business owner for over 5 years, and I have used various free downloadable contracts for my freelancers and on-the-day assistants, and I have found them not to always be relevant to the wedding and events industry and hard to make sense of. Last week, I purchased and downloaded Event HR’s legally compliant contract for services, it was really easy to edit, not too lengthy, a good structure and written in plain coherent language. Thank you Event HR for this helpful resource..”

“Soniamarie played an integral part in designing and implementing our Health and Safety programme. The quality of her work is excellent, she has a great attitude and a wealth of experience to bring to the table especially in the area of Human Resources which is her speciality. I value her honesty, professional approach and consistency which is hard to come by these days.”

“Sonia supported us with workforce changes by providing advice and help with the embedding of new staffing structures. She enabled us to support staff and also advised us on individual consultation requirements. She also provided advice in person and via e-mail and have been on hand to help with our overall approach as well as with specific questions.”
“Sonia provided an excellent HR consultancy service to me when I had to review and relaunch our Company HR Handbook for the UK team. I am in a standalone HR role in the UK and it was very important to me that I had a trusted HR and Employment Law professional to help guide me and provide advice on the template I had drafted, thereby ensuring that it adhered to UK employment legislation and best practice.
She met with me at the start of the project to ensure she fully understood the business and our requirements of her. She was very quick to provide helpful comments and suggested amendments where necessary to ensure the Handbook was both compliant and easy to understand.”

“Sonia started working with us at the end of 2014 as our external HR consultancy. Since they started with us, they have delivered an excellent training programme to the management team that has further enhanced HR processes within the Company. The internal training and development has most certainly provided the management team with additional structured management tools that has significantly improved their HR skills to manage their teams efficiently.
Since the start of our relationship, we have noticed a drastic reduction in HR issues across all departments with the revised HR support and processes. Our dedicated consultant continues to provide prompt and plausable support dealing with any HR issues as and when required. I would confidently recommend Sonia as an HR partner to any company.”
“I have had the opportunity to work with Soniamarie Palmer in various aspects of business cycles, both established businesses and through major restructurings. I have found Soniamarie to be very effective in providing both support to the team and in taking control of critical projects to ensure delivery and accuracy where the risks have been high. Soniamarie delivered the requirements of these projects which reduced the business risk/exposure and was a valued member of the team and I miss her professional guidance and support.”

“Sonia has been working with our Company since the beginning of 2013, and during this time they have helped and advised us with various systems and procedures, been involved with the implementation of our staff handbook, Drugs and Alcohol policy and procedures. They have also been involved with the reviews of all our contracts of employment.
We now have a forward plan/priority list for all our HR procedures. Whenever we have a problem or just a question, we call/email our consultant who helps and advises us to get a satisfactory end result. They have a wealth of information. We value all the help and advice Sonia gives to this Company.”
