HR Solutions expands with acquisition of Milton Keynes based HR Consultancy

HR Solutions are delighted to announce that we are expanding our business with the acquisition of HR Services (UK) Limited of Milton Keynes.  The acquisition coincides with the opening of an office at Midsummer Court in Milton Keynes, which will provide a base for us to meet with and service clients in the area.

 

As part of the merger which was completed on 1st December 2017, Elaine Pennell, owner of HR Services (UK) Limited, has moved over to HR Solutions and taken on the role of Senior HR Consultant. Elaine’s clients have made the move with her to HR Solutions. Elaine started HR Services (UK) ten years ago after working as Head of HR for a global IT organisation. Her job involved a lot of travel and she was able to use her knowledge and experience to create her own business that offered HR services on a retainer basis to companies that didn’t have an HR department. The business quickly grew through networking and word of mouth and evolved into the success it is today.

About the merger with HR Solutions, Elaine says:

“I have been approached about selling my business before but quickly recognised that HR Solutions held the same values as me, both personally and professionally. Like me, they aim to be the best they can possibly be at what they do and customer service is paramount. I have no doubt that my clients will be very well looked after here and the response I have had from them about the merger has been extremely positive.

“I was approached by HR Solutions about a merger and quickly realised that this would be a great opportunity, not only for both of our businesses, but also my clients. My clients will still have me as their point of contact and access to the same services they have always had, but also the option of additional services I could never offer them, such as payroll, recruitment services and the provision of training courses. Also, with a larger team comes fast response times and access to a wealth of HR Advisors and Consultants for support.”

Greg Guilford, Chief Executive Officer of HR Solutions, added:

“We are incredibly excited both by the acquisition of this great company and to welcome Elaine on board with us. This move is part of a wider growth plan to establish a presence in Milton Keynes and we look forward to meeting with Elaine’s clients and getting to know them and their businesses.”

Greg adds: “Like Elaine, customer service has always been a top priority to us and has enabled us to grow year on year since 2001. This was evidenced recently when we were finalists in the category of Service Excellence at the SME Awards at both a local and national level. We look forward to working together and building on these values and providing the very best service and HR advice possible to clients new and old.”
