What our clients say…

In small business we know that word of mouth is one of the most powerful tools we have. We pride ourselves in our work and above all, the relationships we have with our clients. But don’t just take our word for it, please have a read, and hear what our clients have to say about us.
Keeping abreast of market salaries after the turmoil of the last 2 years has become increasingly tough.  In the space of a few days Rise HR had conducted a company wide benchmarking exercise for us and delivered a comprehensive report with clear recommendations.  We set our 2022 salary increases with confidence knowing we were competitive with the external market!

I’ve been in management with a lot of small businesses over many years, both commercial and charitable, and wish I had found Rise HR earlier. They are a perpetually calm and constructive influence and will get directly involved as much as or as little as you need, and during live issues seem to be available 24/7!

As an expanding business, Kirsty and the team at Rise HR have been an invaluable asset for the team at DeGould. They are very supportive from the moment we reach out with queries, follow up and ensure we have all the information required. No issue is too small or big and they go above and beyond to give us a quick response. They are aware of the work we carry out and our goals so ensure that their advice supports this.
Lacey Robins

HR Coordinator, DeGould

Nothing is too much trouble and they are great at proactively spotting potential problems or opportunities and gently coaching the organisation forward. They have a depth of knowledge to help keep us safe – but approach things in a very practical way – avoiding meaningless jargon and even having a laugh. We love working with them and can’t recommend them enough.

Rise HR have been an invaluable HR resource to Lister Communications for around 10 years now, they have always felt like part of our management team as they understand our business and staff. Rise take care of every single detail and simple to understand advice, which allows us to concentrate on running the business.

Jim Clapham

Director Lister Unified Communications Ltd

I have found Georgina Read to be personable, kind and understanding in helping us through some challenging times within our family business with a relatively small workforce. I know that within Agriculture using an HR company is not the norm but I have learnt an enormous amount and put procedures in place that will ultimately protect us and our employees for the future.

Kathryn Cato

Owner R N & M Lawton Farm

Being a company director can be a lonely place in tough times so being able to make important decisions after an informed conversation can really make all the difference to a positive or negative outcome.  I have to say I could not of got to where we are today without being able to pick up the phone and receive the HR support and advice of the team.

Mark Cliff

Director Blu Fish Ltd

Rise HR have a great understanding of our business model, our staff and the sector and they provide commercially focused advice that both protects our business and staff but also doesn’t hinder how we operate. I would certainly recommend them to any business looking for HR advice.

Stefan Roberts

MD Robert Express Delivery

Rise HR are discrete, professional and always available at short notice to provide pragmatic and actionable advice to both individual employees and the management team. What we really like about Rise is their appreciation of our company culture and how they tailor their approach to meet our particular needs.

Tim Williams

Director Edward Elgar

We experienced a scenario where two highly valued, passionate employees were in conflict.  Rise HR’s work with us to identify the root cause through a one day mediation process has seen remarkable results, resolving a complex conflict which in turn has vastly improved the working relationships and prevented significant loss of human capital.

John Walden

Marine Technical Limits

Thank you so much for today and indeed for all that you do. Your work for us is having a truly transformative effect on the business and enables us to achieve things we never could have before.

James Ducker

MD of Decent Group

It is a fantastic service, very responsive and better than I had hoped for from an HR consultancy.  We definitely made the right decision!



We brought in Rise HR to deliver a series of remote training sessions to help address bullying and harassment in the workplace. This is a difficult issue, particularly after the transition to predominantly WFH environment. Rise HR’s handling and delivery of these sessions was fantastic and they engaged well with staff, leading to lots of suggestions for change and improvement. This has led to a noticeable improvement in relevant scores on the annual staff satisfaction survey – we look forward to working with Rise HR again in the future.

Cyber Resilience Programme Manager, Ministry of Defence

When we had a specific query regarding a new type of employment contract, we reached out to Rise HR who were quick to respond and help us. We received support from Kirsty who speedily reviewed and updated our contracts, giving us confidence that what we had was fit for purpose (and legal!). The cost was extremely reasonable and we will definitely reach out to Rise again.
