Jo provided a source of expert advice; a calm and pragmatic approach to what we needed to do; and supported me in navigating a very complex situation.

Jo helped me with taking on my first few employees and was just absolutely wonderful. She made the journey so comfortable and was there to support me every step of the way. She helped write the job posts, wrote the contracts for me and helped me by highlighting sections I needed to make sure were correct as it’s a remote position. She then in no time wrote an employee handbook for me and sent me risk self assessments and everything else I needed, but didn’t even know I needed. Thank you so much Jo for making the journey easy and comfortable and helping me every step of the way! I highly recommend working with Jo on your HR 😊Simone Sumers: VideoOnboarding
