Feedback from customers

For organisations too small to field their own HR department, you cannot do better than enlist the services of WorkNest for a competitively priced, highly competent, flexible and friendly service.

Miranda Litchfield, director of The Society of the Little Flower

They've been excellent for us. It's reassuring to have that expert support.

Rob Music, chief executive at The Migraine Trust

It’s clear WorkNest cares about ensuring the service is right for you and wants to build relationships with you. I’d recommend them to anyone looking for better quality, personable Employment Law and HR support.

Alistair King, HR manager at Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust

WorkNest has given us structure around health and safety and made sure our internal processes are robust ... We are now in a much stronger position to protect our people and our reputation with WorkNest’s support.

Andrew Hyland, head of people and culture at Carers Trust

Some people may think outsourced HR support may slow you down – I’ve found it to be completely the opposite. Recently, within 10 minutes of talking to WorkNest, I had a way forward, a letter to the employee, and a meeting planned for two days’ time.
