“Joining the programme has enabled us to break through the glass ceiling. We now have confidence in our strategies, setting goals and sticking with it. Turnover has tripled and staff doubled over the last 3 years.”
"Living Flame was lacking direction so I reached out to Advice First. Through the consultation, advice and support of Gwyn Thomas and the POD team, we were able to create a robust business plan which has helped Living Flame and I to refocus the business to better target the key areas of growth within our business".
"The plan, along with guidance on implementation has shone light on the importance of all staff pulling in the right direction and people + strategy = success."
"POD has offered accurate and crucial advice and guidance in dealing with every aspect within the HR area, from coaching, interviewing, inductions, the disciplinary process, keeping employees engaged and more."
"This area of the business was limping along 3 years ago and staff turnover was at an all-time low, however, I am happy to say, this is no longer the case and we now have the right people on board, motivated, engaged and productive, which allows me to concentrate on the other aspects of my role..."
“Our Supervisors have had positive appraisal results, they’re more organised and now set goals for themselves and their teams. They appear calmer and more positive. We’re seeing a higher skill level with their new found leadership techniques.”
"POD's consultants are experts in their field and come highly recommended as your HR partner, mentor and business coach."
I have had to go through the difficult process of trying to find a full time job when there isn’t much going in the workforce. I had tried going through many different recruitment agencies with them all lacking the communication and drive to get me a job. This changed once I found myself meeting with Simone from POD consulting. She was very professional and was very easy to talk with and listened to all my needs and took them on board. She managed to place me in a full time job which I am very much enjoying to this day. I don’t know what would have happened if I never came across her and thank her very much for all her help and constant communication throughout the whole process. I couldn’t recommend POD Consulting enough and especially Simone, she was outstanding!!
“Safe365 has helped raise awareness for the health and safety committee. Knowledge can then be filtered down to employees on best practice. Safe365 has shown us we’re in quite a good place to start from and we’re more confident now that our efforts are getting off on the right foot and the app will help make it much easier to keep tabs.”
"Our experience working with POD has been extremely positive and produced tangible results which speak for themselves."
“Sharn’s sessions have been hugely helpful and are so practical I can instantly share the knowledge with our team and achieve a direct result. We have already implemented considerable change in a very short space of time since commencing this course; it’s great being goal orientated again and off the day to day tasks.”
"POD has allowed me time to take a step back from the day to day activities and focus on other areas of the business."
"I can honestly say that POD are so amazing at what they do. They are professional, welcoming, quick, approachable, and do what they say they are going to do. I'm so glad that I have chosen to work with such a great bunch of people that not only do their job, but leave me feeling inspired."
