Jeff Wellstead – VP of People Operations at ONI

“Lisa from e-volve operated as interim HR leader at varying stages of ONI’s development and growth – often through some particularly challenging times in our short, but very exciting history – and offered a level head, clear focus on complicated HR issues, and helped create order out of challenge, ambiguity and ever increasing complexity. Her start-up experience, ability to walk into turbulence with ease and confidence, coach and support management and work with employees at all levels was most welcome, and a breath of fresh air in easing my transition into the VP of People role I took on here several months ago. .”

Tim Gomersall – MD of The Good Ideas Group

e-volveHR are the perfect fit for the HR needs of a growing team like ours. Their depth of experience, speed of response and their proactive approach all mean we get the support and wisdom of a (very senior) in-house HR team at a fraction of the cost. Working with Sarah and e-volve has greatly reduced the burden of running a business for me, and given me confidence that the HR element of the business, which had previously been somewhat improvised, is now truly gold-standard. Thanks e-volve!
