About Us

Based in Bath, the company was formed in January 2003 by Richard Boniface, BA(Hons), DPM, Chartered MCIPD, who has over 27 years of Human Resource Management experience. Richard has enjoyed significant success since forming the company, with all work to date (bar two exceptions) coming from repeat business or word of mouth recommendation; which he believes is a testament to the quality of the work and the trust and rapport built with clients.

Main work undertaken generally as follows:

  • Advice, normally via phone, to regular on-going clients re informal & formal staffing problems. Guidance is given over the way to manage the particular matter, taking into account the desired staff-management culture of the client. Support often includes the drafting of letters and suggested ‘scripts’.
  • Change management/redundancy & redeployment advice & Lead (incl. TUPE)
  •  Investigations (normally into allegations concerning CEOs, directors and other senior leaders)
  • Facilitating various meetings
  • Service reviews (e.g. into why an organisation has such a high level of sickness and turnover)
  • HR policy & procedure and Staff Handbook development
  • Training re leadership and managing staffing issues


The company’s regular on-going clients are all SMEs but Richard also undertakes regular one-off type pieces of work (such as sensitive investigations or TUPE transfers) for a variety of private and public sector organisations.

Richard offers a highly professional service tailored to the needs and desired staffmanagement culture of the client. Richard always undertakes the work himself but will call upon one of a selection of quality associates to work alongside him if required and agreed with the client (e.g. for certain harassment investigations).

Clients do not pay any form of retainer but simply pay for those minutes of work undertaken.
