Client Testimonials

  • I have worked with Adare Human Resource Management over the past couple of years. I find their services very useful and beneficial. I recently hired them to work on a project with me on short notice. This project was led very professionally and with great attention to detail from the Adare team. Furthermore they were extremely reliable and turned it around very quickly. I will continue to use their services and would recommend them highly to anyone who needs extra HR services.

  • Adare Human Resource Management has been providing HR Services to NRC for over 6 years. The Adare team manages our contracts of employment, employee handbooks and any legislative employee queries we may have. I have found their professional advice has always been accurate, up-to-date and communicated quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Adare team for any organisation that requires HR or Employment Law Support issues.

  • Adare Human Resource Management has been providing HR services to énergie fitness (formerly Jackie Skelly Fitness) since 2008.

    We initially went to Adare HRM as a cost effective alternative to a dedicated Human Resource function. We stayed with Adare HRM due to the excellent level of service provided.

    With approximately 300 staff – both full and part time – across 9 locations, I think we have come up with every permutation of HR query. Each query was dealt with promptly and comprehensively and an experienced Adare consultant was always at the end of the phone if there was an emergency or further information about a particular case required, either inside or outside working hours.

    We have found the consultants within the Adare HRM team to be personable and I never have any hesitation lifting up the phone to them. They always provide a practical solution to whatever question or issue that arises.

  • Adare Human Resource Management commenced work with Sherry Fitzgerald Kennedy-Lowe in 2007 with the aim of providing Human Resource and Health & Safety advice and support.

    Working in conjunction with our management team, the Human Resources Consultant produced tailored contracts of employment and an employee handbook specifically for our business.

    The advice provided during the initial consultation process demonstrated a thorough working knowledge of HR practices and employment legislation.

    Adare Human Resource Management provides an extremely valuable service ensuring that Sherry Fitzgerald Kennedy-Lowe are not only compliant with current employment and health and saferty legislation but are also in a position to achieve best practice within our industry.

    The approach taken by Adare Human Resource Management is both professional and efficient and I would have no hesitation in recommending Adare Human Resource Management to other organisations.
