We can also create compelling Grievance and Appeal letters that set the foundation for an EXIT strategy and financial settlement.

HR Support & Advice

With a choice of on-site or remote HR Support & Advice we can provide an unbiased approach to your employee relations issues. We can work in partnership with your leaders. Alternatively, we can manage the process from start to finish without your direct involvement


I wanted to take this opportunity to recognise the great work you did on behalf of one of my clients recently.
Your thorough approach, attention to detail and skilful people management appeared to be appreciated by employer and employee alike. Whilst the parties may have been bitterly
antagonistic and distrusting of one another, it didn’t appear at any stage that either side doubted your fairness or even handedness.
From my perspective, your methodical and careful way of dealing with the investigation was enormously helpful and, I strongly suspect, played a significant part in persuading the parties to put aside their differences and find common ground in order to draw a line under the matter.
I won’t hesitate to continue to refer and recommend you where there is opportunity to do so.

During the initial discussions, Tracey was very attentive to detail and took on what we required along with her expert knowledge to create bespoke HR policies, staff employment contracts and our company staff handbook. She spent a lot of time with us on the phone speaking to us about ways we can encourage our staff to bring the best out of them and provide excellent client communication. Her policies can be used for a lifetime for our company

Practice Manager/Director, The Leeds Clinic

We contacted Practical People to assist us with updating our HR policies, staff contracts,  and staff handbook. Tracey was friendly, thorough, and professional and made the process very simple for our busy Managing Director.  We would highly recommend Practical People’s services to any business looking to update their policies and procedures.

I engaged Tracey recently to manage a complex employee complaint and carry out an independent, objective investigation with an outcome document and report.

Her approach was both sensitive to the difficult issues , and professional throughout. She was balanced and left no stone unturned.

I would most certainly engage Tracey again to act as a non-employed, impartial investigating officer. The quality of her output was high and her general approach worked well with our business and culture.  

Katie Saunders

HR Director, JCT600 Ltd

After trying many approaches with regards to recruitment, we decided that we needed a specialist, that could grow with us and have the knowledge to advise us on all aspects of recruitment.

We work closely with Tracey and see her as a valuable extension to our own company.

Tracey is always straight talking and approachable. Her knowledge is unrivalled and she is considered an expert within the industry.

We look forward to working with Tracey again in the near future.

Adam Kershaw

Director, Aqualine Ltd

I recently asked Tracey to help with an HR issue, we are always keen as a company to make sure we look after our employees and want to make sure any decisions we make are under the right advice.

The issue we had  I thought was a little tricky and possibly sensitive.  However, we talked to Tracey and she gave us a couple of options for handling the issue, she also gave us guidance on how we could handle the situation both morally and legally.

We were also provided with all the templates we needed to deal with the employee and reach a conclusion.

Tracey gave a good commercial view and made the process very easy.
