"We've worked with e-volveHR for over a year now and Sarah and Lisa have been absolute game-changers for both us and our portfolio companies. They have deep domain expertise and understanding of all things HR & People, which coupled with responsiveness, availability, follow-through, attention to detail and affordable pricing models, makes them an absolute dream to work with. They're people experts who understand startup founders and their struggles and needs. e-volveHR have been absolutely instrumental in helping our portfolio companies lay their HR foundations, including everything from supporting on Employee Handbooks, HR documents, OKRs, retention advice, salary benchmarking, interim Head of People roles and ad-hoc support stretching beyond all of this.
I've never worked with a delivery partner who has consistently received only positive feedback from everyone they've worked with. When we onboard portfolio companies, I actually can't wait to connect them to the e-volveHR team because I know that the quality of work that they'll receive will wow them - positively contributing to how they view us too!
I was only willing to publicly share our great experience of working with them out of deep love for their work - I've been pretty intent on keeping them our best kept secret to date otherwise :)"
Sonia Maciuszewicz – Founder Experience Manager, BackedVC
"Our digital health start-up is growing at a fast pace - three to 40 employees in three years. In the first year, it became crucial for us to ensure our HR capabilities were up to speed. e-volveHR have become a true partner and are so responsive it feels like we have them beside us full time. With Sarah’s help, we now have best practice systems and processes in place and a flexible HR set up that grows with our business.
e-volveHR have helped us to shape and define our company values and take a huge weight off our minds.”
Helen Williams – Director of Operations, Vitaccess
“I would absolutely recommend e-volveHR, both Sarah and Lisa have bags of expertise, but crucially they are able to add immediate value. Sarah worked with Jagex as interim HRD and was able to provide the team with leadership and professional guidance from the get go. Sarah and Lisa also supported our calibration process for end of year reviews and did so both professionally and sensitively. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
David Lomax – VP of HR & Operations, Jagex
“Anyone experienced in scaling a company appreciates the value of applying external expertise to the inside of your business. As a fast-growing company, it’s essential to maintain first-class operations that ensure not just compliance with the latest regulations but optimal productivity and engagement through best practice. Working with the e-volve team has been indispensable in laying those robust foundations for scale. Extremely knowledgeable and deeply conscientious, they have not only upgraded our People Operations but also upskilled our team in the process. We look forward to collaborating again in future.”
Abbie Pugh – Head of People, LabGenius
"Sarah is an exceptional HR leader. She provided the HR expertise we needed to establish our HR controls, policy and processes and built a true business partner approach with our Games teams. She understood what we needed as a high growth business and proactively both recommended and implemented improvements in areas that added value. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to other businesses."
Torsten Reil – CEO, NaturalMotion Games
"I’ve worked with e-volveHR, and its founders, for 5 years. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
They are straightforward, practical and approach everything with common sense. Whatever your business needs, they will deliver. They have no ego and will do whatever needs to be done - from basic HR administration through to the most top-level strategic decision making – which makes them the perfect people to work with startups and SMEs where one person needs to fulfil all roles.
In addition to being professionally excellent, the e-volve team are also a joy to work with – lovely people with great personalities and bags of emotional intelligence.
Any organisation would benefit from their insights and expertise. 5 star rating!"
Katie Bedborough – CFO, Oxford VR
"Lisa has provided invaluable interim leadership for our People team at Bossa Studios. She joined at a critical time with both the studio and the People team needing to go through some transformative changes. Lisa has helped us build a strong People team, helping them execute strategic projects, that have made a big, immediate impact and provided them with great leadership and mentoring.
Lisa understands the challenges of start-ups and growth very well. It's been fantastic to see her fit so easily into the studio and has become a valuable part of the senior management team. She’s made finding a permanent Dir of People and Talent a bit hard, only, because she has set the benchmark so high!"
