We’ve worked with hundreds of businesses over the years, and in that time we’ve learnt that businesses don’t bear fruit when they’re rotten inside.

That’s why many of our clients work with us not just on their HR, but on creating happy, healthy places to work.

Because when you’ve developed a winning workplace formula, you can grow bigger without worrying about what’ll happen, spend less of your time working in the business and create something that’s an attractive proposition to any potential buyer.

If you’re serious about success, then ticking a few boxes isn’t enough. And that’s why we work with businesses to transform their workplaces, get the right foundations in place, and give them everything they need to grow.

"No nonsense and down-to-earth approach"

The team at J Mann Associates are so approachable, and, in particular, the 'no nonsense' and 'down-to-earth' approach which is what is needed when dealing with HR, a subject which often strikes fear in the hearts of those of us who only touch the edges of the subject.  Also, how quickly one can get the guidance and reassurance needed just by picking up the phone, or sending a quick email.  Compared with other companies we have used in the past, you are the human face of HR.

- Kate Redding, Buckingham Ford

"J Mann Associates is there if you need them."

You can call and get all the support you need with any HR issue or topic. And it will be handled perfectly and reduces the stress for the business. But you do a lot more than that. Your company is not just reactive… You are proactively taking the lead, sharing updates and best practice. You prompt businesses to look at how they do things and question whether they could do things differently or better. It’s much more of a partnership.

- Andrew Munt, Chief of Operations, Penta Hotels Worldwide GmbH

"J Mann Associates are my safety blanket."

I can’t imagine my business without you. You offer value for money; you are comfort at the end of the phone; I can always speak to you when I phone. You provide me with confidence and comfort.

Having the right team in place is crucial for a business to be successful. I regard you as part of this team. Whether it is advising on employee issues or informing me of new legislation, everything is covered and you provide me with peace of mind.

- Sarah Aherne, Owner Shwetan
