Do you need HR support?


If you’re a small to medium-sized business owner, the chances are you won’t have your own in-house HR support or team. That’s where we come in.

At J Mann Associates, we have over 20 years’ experience when it comes to HR training and support. We have probably dealt with every people issue you could think of in the workplace and no doubt you’ve had to deal with some of these issues yourself in the past. These issues range from long-term sickness to more serious cases such as assault.

We understand that when running your own business, it can be stressful trying to cope with your day-to-day responsibilities along with employee issues, as they arise. Managing the people side of your business can be very time consuming, as you are often dealing with very sensitive subjects, such as workplace bullying or staff redundancy. It can also become very expensive, but we provide business owners with a cost-effective solution to manage HR support, document and compliance check-ups and on-going training.

Hiring a company who offer HR support will mean that your business will benefit in more ways than one. For example, we can ensure that you are employment contracts are robust and protect the business.

Employees will put their trust in you, knowing that any issues they may have will be dealt with in the correct manner, and ultimately ensure they are happier in their job roles.

People Advisor


I’ve spent over 20 years working in HR

“I don’t think during that time there’s any people issues that I’ve not actually dealt with – whether that’s long-term sick issues,  whether it’s bullying,  harassment , disciplinary –  we even dealt with a rape case. There really is nothing that I haven’t had to deal with at some stage in my HR career.”

I understand when you’re running a business that it can be really stressful when you have to manage people

You’ve got the day to day of your business that you’ve got to look after, managing the people side of it can be really time-consuming and, not to mention, very expensive if you’ve got to take on an HR expert to help you with these issues.

I wanted to give business owners a cost-effective solution something that was going to give them peace of mind without breaking the bank, so that’s why I decided to create our HR Support – the P.E.O.P.L.E Advisor.

With the P.E.O.P.L.E Advisor, you get your own HR expert

What that means to you as the business owner,  is that:

  • Each time you phone you get to speak to the same person
  • They understand your business
  • They know what the issues are and it means…
  • You don’t have to keep repeating yourself.

My Purpose and Values: Create a Great Place To Work


My name is Jacqui Mann, I’m the founder of JMann Associates and I’m also known as the P.E.O.P.L.E Doctor.

We specialise in working with entrepreneur business owners who have a six to eight figure turnover normally between 10 to 200 staff – those who are looking to grow and, who want to create a great place to work.

I have a background in executive and behavioural coaching, HR, and business and, I’ve studied the impact that people make to organisations.

For over 20 years I surveyed hundreds of business owners and found there was three main problems that were preventing them from seriously growing their business.

  1. They struggled to recruit the right people,
  2. Employees don’t follow the right systems and processes and,
  3. Employees have no passion for the work. They turn up late, they go sick, make mistakes and, they have attitude problems.

Recruiting, motivating and retaining the right people

Recruiting, motivating and retaining the right people is crucial for growth and creating a great culture. That is why I have created a six step methodology which explains all the principles you need to create a great culture and, a great place to work.

By implementing the principles into your business, you’ll see a change in your culture and the performance of your team and, it will enable you to recruit, motivate, and retain the right people for your business.
