Our Values

You can expect

Us to understand that it’s not only a question of price but also of standards, ethics and values. After all, you want to deal with HR specialists you like and trust, not just people who offer the cheapest price!

We believe

Business owners/companies want HR specialists that they can talk to about their issues – someone to share their concerns and discuss their problems with.

We will

Act honestly and with integrity in all our dealings with you. Provide you with clear, straightforward advice. Act with independence and objectivity in producing information and reports.

Personally, I could not have done this without Trish’s excellent support. Very responsive and guided me through always readily providing info I needed in a timely manner. They have been very responsive and pragmatic throughout. Would 100% use them again.

Thank you Avia HR for providing support with recruitment. Your template offer letters, supporting paperwork for new starters and employment contracts as well as clear advice on providing benefits for part time staff made the process incredibly simple

We had a complex workforce issue at Botanic Lab so took on Avia HR’s expertise. They immediately understood the issue and were able to offer advice on employment law and resolve the issue quickly in a very professional manner. They also helped us to set up internal HR systems that have proved invaluable as the company has grown and are a continued support in all areas of legal compliance.

At very short notice Avia HR Consultancy stepped in to provide immediate advice and practical support for a very complex internal investigation and subsequent disciplinary process after our existing HR provider was unable to assist. Trish was both knowledgeable and supportive to the investigative team and continued that level of advice and guidance on to the Partners who were to hold the Disciplinary Hearing, providing that support throughout the whole process.
