  • "Karen is extremely knowledgeable in her field, she has a wide breadth of understanding to help businesses with all things HR.  Karen takes a very pragmatic view to find solutions to help businesses.  I would highly recommend Karen to anyone who is looking for someone to help their business improve and grow.  Karen is very capable and has a very calm way about her approach to work. I have seen Karen guide and steer businesses on the new apprenticeship levy to ensure they have a great solution to move forward and add real value to their business. Karen is someone you can trust to help you and your business. She also has a great team around her."

  • "The People Factor coaching is the best investment you can make in your future. Get access to a lifetime of experience in your lunch hour!"

    Tony Sheath Health & Compliance Director @ Wagamama
  • "We found The People Factor through a referral and have worked with them for over a year now and are delighted with the work carried out so far. The London Cocktail Club is a staff list of young, creative and dynamic individuals from entry level to senior management, this requires HR assistance and the implementation of policies and procedures in a delicate manner so as not to disrupt the every day running of the teams. Gail has been outstanding with helping us understand employment law, whilst guiding us through difficult decisions. She has helped develop organisational culture and has also helped coach our operations and recruitment teams through both interventions and in how to retain key staff. I would highly recommend working with Gail and the team at The People Factor."

  • "I’ve had the pleasure of working with & for Karen on three different occasions, the first a million years ago when I ran pubs & she was newly qualified, the second at Novus Leisure where she was my HR Director, and the third in a support & mentoring capacity, Karen was definitely doing the supporting & mentoring. Karen has a lovely way about her, she is professional yet approachable, firm but fair (sorry, the cliché of all cliché’s) a good person to be around, but above all else, and bloody good at her job… I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen for any people related project. Simple as that!"

    Paul Glenn Head of People @ Drake & Morgan
  • "I met Karen during a previous role over 10 years ago, and I think you just know sometimes that when you meet someone you are going to keep their phone number in your contacts forever. I'm glad to say that Karen is one of those contacts and she has been invaluable in helping us by providing my business with the most up to date advice  yet presented in a very straight forward way."

    Ian Woodhall Lang UK / Director
  • "Having worked with Penny on a number of Right to Work related projects  during the last year or so, I have found her to be highly competent in her areas of expertise. She exceeds clients expectations through high levels of support and constant communication. Her approach is extremely engaging to the teams she works."

    Sue Cleminson HR Director @ Vapiano
  • "Having known and worked with Karen for over 20 years she remains an incredibly knowledgeable and extremely competent senior HR professional. Karen adds exceptional levels of value to any organisation  or individual that she supports. Karen is a true HR leader and I would certainly recommend her to anyone looking for HR support or senior level coaching/mentoring."
