Energising your business

Diane Sutton – CCE Electronics

“As a medium sized privately owned business we don’t have an in-house dedicated HR team, so for us to find a source of strong, clear, practical help, offered in a timely manner was crucial. HaytonHeyes were recommended to us and provide us with continued excellent and very practical advice.  They work with us every step of the way through ‘live’ situations so we can move forward with confidence.”

Nicole Porter – Estate Planning Solutions

“Very good informative course, very helpful and practical to take back to the office”

Nazima Choudhury

“All in all HR support from HaytonHeyes is excellent. Two members of staff that I’ve dealt with have always been very approachable and easy to talk to yet extremely professional at all times. Being a new manager in a care home for the first time, that was very important to me that I had people that I can approach easily. Response and support was always quick and efficient. I would most certainly use HaytonHeyes again.”

Kevin Adshead

“Behind every great man is a great woman?  Kim Hayton of HaytonHeyes is that woman.  In my case it is true.  It began in 2006, when Kim delivered two training sessions to a company I worked for.  I was so impressed by the delivery method that her name stuck in my mind.  In 2013, I contacted Kim and asked her to be my life coach.  I was stuck in life after a life changing event, deliberating over everything, lacking self confidence, self-esteem, talking the talk but failing to walk the walk, not knowing which way to go or how to get there.  In a measured approach of goal setting and self accountability, with a step by step, person-centred approach, dealing with every aspect of life and career, the transformation begun.  I have changed from being a follower into a leader.  I am now a decision maker with purpose.  I set a target and hit the mark, knowing how and why I have got there.  I have become an inspiration to others and have a self-belief that I never thought possible thanks to Kim’s guidance and assistance.  Kim’s knowledge and understanding is second to none.  Kim’s direct and no excuse approach, instils faith in the faithless, belief in the unbelievers, confidence in the unconfident and makes you realise that anything is achievable, in anyone, if they are willing to step up to the mark”


“Oh you’re always so thorough!! Thank you so very much Kim… as always you offer a professional and honest response which I truly am grateful of…”

Monique Wood, HR Manager

“After having attended another of Hayton’s employment law update seminars, I feel confident, as an HR Manager, that I can ensure our company remains compliant, take away the information that I have learnt from Kim and update our policies and procedures in line with current legislation. The sessions are run in a relaxed way in bite size chunks. Kim gives you every opportunity to clarify anything which you are unsure of and you can be sure of an impartial, honest and practical answer to any of your queries. I would have no hesitation in recommending these seminars to any HR professional or business owner looking to stay up to date.”

Rachel Flanagan – Flanagan Shaw Recruitment

“I have attended two of Kim’s employment law updates, the second of which was held last week. As a recruitment consultant needing to keep up-to-date on changes in employment law, I attend different providers’ updates and seminars. However, I find Kim’s to be the most useful, in fact they are excellent. They are particularly useful for small businesses and those without an in-house HR team or in-house employment lawyers. The updates are comprehensive yet given in digestible chunks, Kim makes some very dry subjects interesting with the use of examples, she throws in a degree of pragmatism, jargon is avoided, and the inclusion of a second speaker to talk about a topical subject also makes the session interesting. Kim is knowledgeable, capable and pragmatic, and I recommend her employment laws updates without hesitation.”

Sarah Ginham-Clegg – Director, Topspeed Couriers

“As an SME the disciplinary process is both time consuming and difficult. With fewer staff wearing many hats and the connection between management staff and workers often being more intimate, we chose Hayton Consultancy to offer the benefit of an external professional who is both unbiased and able to be distant from the process. This has helped take the strain off the workload and lessen the burden of having to take difficult decisions without the benefit of professional & objective advice. Not to mention safeguarding the company from unnecessary litigation by ensuring we get the procedure right.”

Chris Duddle, Director of Clinical Services – Wigan and Leigh Hospice

“Kim Hayton and her team have been working with us now for a number of months. They initially facilitated a small working group of front line staff to develop core competencies around each hospice role. They then helped us to examine and review all job descriptions. This was not a small task as we had hundreds of them in many different formats. The development of core competencies enables us to plan recruitment, training and development going forward so that we can ensure our services continue to be delivered by highly trained and motivated staff. Hayton Consultancy has guided us throughout this process and we are delighted to recommend their services.”

Ben Wild, Sr Business Consultant – Clear Edge Search & Selection

“Straight talking, no fluffy edges, knows her stuff. A great contact to have if you value an honest opinion”

Laura Glover, Operations Manager – Calibre Control International

“I would just like to say a huge thank you to Kim Hayton for the last two HR seminars that I attended, I enjoyed them both thoroughly and took away so much information and knowledge that I would struggle to get anywhere else! I found both seminars to be extremely interesting and really enjoyed the interactive sections in particular “Who wants to be a millionaire?” (good job it wasn’t for real money we would have lost it all!!!) I found the sessions to be just the right length of time and jam packed with information to take away and digest. I also find the case studies extremely useful and interesting and it’s obvious to see the time and effort that goes in to gathering these. Thank you so much!!”

Mark Shotton, Managing Director

“The programme has gone very well indeed, and I feel that your attention to our company has been second-to-none. We have a new structure; we are more in control of our variable costs; and our people feel like we are a trusted advisor to share concerns with and take appropriate actions(s) with. Advice is often what one seeks when you know the answer but perhaps wish one didn’t, but taking your advice has been invaluable to us as a business. I know latterly you have been providing 1-2-1 coaching with our staff, and this also has been most helpful; in our quest to improve our service to our customers. I believe we have gleaned and learned much, and you have allowed us to examine our own issues and given us tools to go forward forearmed and forewarned. We will not get it right every time, but we know you will be there to help us should the need arise. I would also have every intention in recommending you to businesses of a similar vein to ourselves, and indeed my network, such has been your attention to detail with ourselves. May I once again thank yourself and Kerry for a journey of self discovery for Tonrose.”

Rachael Manley, Finance – Omnica

“Hayton Consultancy came recommended to us and was one of four companies we selected to tender for our HR support contract. The decision didn’t just come down to cost; they weren’t the cheapest or the most expensive, but they were the most flexible with their offering. We had a number of requirements we were reviewing each of the companies against and what appealed to us was the flexibility of an all round package that would grow as our business grew. Additionally, we have found they are able to provide us with telephone support giving us access to almost immediate employment law and general HR advice – which has already proved to be very useful. They don’t just cover the statutory requirements, they ‘nag us’ when HR tasks need to be done, tell us if they don’t think something is a good idea, with justifications of what may happen if we choose not to take their advice. We know that two out of the four companies we considered wouldn’t have been able to do what Hayton have done so far, definitely the right decision!”

Andrew Collier, Business Consultant – Clarke Controls

“As part of our programme to expand Clarke Controls business we needed to recruit a new sales team. We felt that handling the recruitment process internally wasn’t the right way to go and that using a recruitment consultancy would not only be very expensive, it would mean that we would need to manage the process internally. Hayton Consultancy was recommended to us and, following a detailed discussion of our requirements, they took over the recruitment process which included the job specifications, advertising, candidate selection and managing the interviewing process. The project was executed quickly, efficiently and at reasonable price, ensuring we found the right people for our new sales team.”

Jon Woodall, Director – Space 48

“We were introduced to Hayton Consultancy from another business that was very complimentary on the good service they had provided. When we met with the team, we could see they were very professional, they definitely knew what they were talking about and filled us with confidence they could do the job. They took ownership and removed a problem with minimal input required from me – absolutely key in my book. We would recommend Hayton Consultancy to any business as a HR provider that Just Get’s it!”

Danielle Abbott, Office Manager – Tonrose Ltd

“We have used the services of the Hayton Consultancy for the last six months and they have become a valuable extension to our company, providing up to date employment law advice. In the time that we have been working alongside Hayton Consultancy, they have prepared all of our employment law documentation on our behalf, which we have complete confidence in using, due to their knowledge and expertise within this field. We value our employees and want them to feel that everything we do, we do so in their interests. The Hayton Consultancy has provided the documentation and advice to help us do this better than we ever could have done without them. I personally can not recommend both Kim and Kerry enough, they are both very approachable, knowledgeable and always on hand, which is particularly helpful in an urgent situation. Now that we have a good handle on the majority of employment law aspects due to their help, the Hayton Consultancy have suggested that we now look to train new man managers within our company, providing them with the training and advice to help them make this transition easier. This is another aspect to the Hayton Consultancy and illustrates how they are not one dimensional company and are always “thinking outside of the box”

Jamie Boyd, Managing Director – Today Team

“As Today Team is continuing to grow, and staff numbers are increasing we wanted to ensure we have the right people in place for our HR. Hayton’s came well recommended and I felt their HR services and help line fit well with our business objectives and so after the initial meeting I had no hesitation in asking them to work with us”

Paul Cliffe, Business Development Manager – Calibre Controls International

“Traditionally we have used the legal route for our HR support, which often has been costly or too formal, Hayton have proven to us that they can act as our own personal HR staff and offer all of the benefits of a permanent HR department without the prohibitive costs associated. Totally professional and knowledgeable we’re looking forward to having them as part of the Calibre team!”
