About Us

Our Belief

We are in the business of helping you make the most of your people. At People Business, we firmly believe that a business will prosper not only with great leadership but with an inspired, passionate and engaged team. Easy to say but not always easy to do! In fact, research shows that good employees leave Managers not the Organisation. Your company values must be real and tangible not just words in a handbook or a poster. Your company culture is a mix of your vision and your behaviour. We recognise that there is an enormous amount of potential within people just waiting to be tapped. Discovering this potential requires specialist expertise.

Our Way

With our experience and resources, we help you create a dynamic culture that engages and inspires your team to do better every day. We are a ‘hands on’, ‘roll up our sleeves’ type consultancy. For nearly 20 years we have partnered with many small to medium sized businesses as their outsourced HR experts. We are your virtual human resource support. We can provide support and advice on an ‘as needs’ or ongoing basis. The function of Human Resources is many and varied. It is impossible to find these specialities in one person. We have a range of experts we can call on no matter what the need.

As your HR Partner we will work with you to:

  • Discover your untapped 3 P’s – passion, purpose and performance of the people you already have
  • Help you search for others with the same passion, purpose and performance
  • Ensure you also meet all relevant HR legislation



Our doors are open to all businesses -
the diversity of our client base makes us
better at what we do.


We believe strong business relationships
are founded on honest and transparent


Our ever-evolving approach to problem
solving yields results and sets us apart
from the pack.


Relevant and precise communication
enriches our client relationships and
builds better businesses.
