Brid Graham, Owner, Sligo Splash Swim School

"I recently attended a HR Law seminar organized by the HR Suite. My aim was to develop my knowledge of the Roles and Responsibilities of the Employer in Ireland 2018. I was so impressed with the compressive course content, the concise delivery of the information, the professionalism of the course facilitator and the layout of the day. The methodologies used by the facilitator allowed us to question legal decisions so as to relate them to our own business set up. We were encouraged to discuss different aspects and feed back our observations in a relaxed, informal manner. However, never did it feel that time was being wasted. Have two degrees and a Masters degree in Business behind me, I can easily vouch that this was one of the best courses I have ever attended. We left with notes, extra legal information and a full toolkit of compliance information, which has spurred me no end to ensure I am covered for all eventualities. A massive thank you to Kelly O'Connor for her knowledge and to Caroline McEnery for her support."

Bevin Mahon B.Soc.Sc, Managing Director, Dental Tech Ltd.

"I met Caroline McEnery through Going for Growth in 2014 and have I been a client of hers ever since and here is why: As a business owner putting the blinkers on is not an option, so getting an expert to do the HR work for me is what I got with Caroline's company, The HR Suite. I haven't looked back. I can sleep soundly knowing that all of my HR policies and procedures are up to date and that any issues are dealt with professionally and competently and all at a fraction of the cost of doing it myself or hiring someone in to do it. While we as small business owners need to know a certain amount, I could never do what needs to be done to the extent that's required, so Caroline's team are the experts at doing just that, high quality service, expertly delivered very efficiently."

Ellen Kavanagh. Founder and CEO , Waxperts, Image Magazine Beauty Innovator of the Year 2015.

"Without a doubt the single best decision we made in our business for our team, was to hire the HR Suite. They have been there in times of crisis to calm and resolve situations. And equally in the good times, helping and supporting us while we expand our team. Being a small business with, now, 10 employees, having a HR department gives everyone a feeling of equality and fairness. And all of our team know that the HR Suite are at the end of the phone should they have any questions at all. Practically speaking, they have helped us put structures and procedures in place to keep up to date with our obligations as employers and also to bring out the best in our team. Everyone is a pleasure to deal with and they are absolute experts in what they do. We don't see HR as a luxury, it is a sheer necessity for any employer, big or small."

Paula Fitzsimons, National Director, Going for Growth

"Caroline McEnery of The HR Suite spoke on the topic How to Hire and Hold Talent at the National Forum of the 6th cycle of Going for Growth, which took place in March 2014. The Lead Entrepreneurs and the participants alike were very impressed by Caroline's expertise and the clear manner in which she elucidated the main points about recruitment, selection and maximising the contribution of employees that any business owner, large or small, needs to know. From the formal feedback collected after the session, it is clear that all of those present (100%) found Caroline's talk to have been of value and of those that indicated that they had made a decision for their business based on what they heard, 95% indicated that they had done so. Not only was the content excellent, but as a presenter Caroline received a top marks. It is clear that there was real interest in the topic and many learnt from the insights that Caroline provided. They came away with a new and very positive perception of HR and the policies and procedures that they should have in place. This was exactly the intention. Thank you, Caroline"
