I worked with Michael on a Business Development Programme for a Client of Michael’s. Michael displayed a tremendous capacity to understand the issues facing Owner/Managers, to help them face the issues and to work with them to deliver and implement practical improvement plans.

I had the unfortunate experience of dealing with a dishonest employee which led to a dismissal and eventually to a court case. During the case it was noted that the fair and equitable manner in which we carried out the investigation in accordance to advice and support from Boyd HR was to be commended and that due to the diligence and professionalism the facts of the case were irrefutable. I would like to thank Michael and his team for their support and advice during this issue.

I have been working in the area of tax and accountancy for over twenty years and during that time business clients have always, without exception, confided details of the difficulties they experience in relation to the management and performance of their staff.

As an employer myself, I too have often found the area of human resources and employment legislation quite daunting and somewhat difficult to manage. It is a complex area and it is essential for the protection of your business that you have the correct systems and procedures in place.

My decision to engage the services of Boyd HR to assist me in this area has certainly proved to a worthwhile investment towards to development and growth of my business.

In addition, assisting our firm in ensuring that the appropriate safeguards are in place for dealing the with the recruitment of staff, Michael Boyd and his team have provided me with some extremely valuable advice in relation to how to effectively deal with challenging issues that sometimes arise within a workplace environment.

Michael always provides the right level of guidance that allows me to reach positive outcomes but at the same time ensuring that I take responsibility as the business owner.

I have no hesitation in recommending Michael and his team with absolute confidence that the advice and services that Boyd HR provide to business owners will be in their best interests.

It is with sincere gratitude that I wish Michael Boyd and his team at Boyd HR, every success in the future development of his business.

I am a local pharmacist based in Donegal town for over 40 years and in Mountcharles for over seven years.

In February 2015, after contacting you for advice on a staffing issue, you came to our home (a private venue) and were able to advise in a factual, concise, point by point basis that enabled me to approach the staff member in question with confidence knowing I am versing my concerns in the correct way that will not cause offence yet they are able to understand what I want going forward.

I was so impressed by your expertise, I knew I needed for my organisation, a full review of my staff employment contracts. Again, you visited our home to discuss, confidentially, our staff on a case by case basis in relation to hours worked, rate of pay, holidays due, what to do in case of bank holidays and lots more.

To finish, we met again in your office in Letterkenny to finally get everything exact. What was produced were excellent staffing contracts, a staff handbook, and for me, a confidence that as an employer I am doing everything by the letter of law.

I had a very recent staff incident that on your verbal advice (at 10.15 pm) followed up by written advice the following morning at 8.45 am, I was able to approach the staff member in question on opening at 9.15 am and solve the incident knowing what and what not to say.

Michael, I have used your professional advice and Human Resource service for years now and I am extremely satisfied with your services.

I would class Boyd HR as an emergency service that you do not appreciate until you need it, and thus with confidence that I can recommend Boyd HR to fellow employers.

Wishing you and the team at Boyd HR the much-deserved success going forward.

– Joe Britton, Managing Director, Britton’s Pharmacy, Donegal Town
