Fleurie Nursery Ltd is an established horticultural company employing 40+ full time staff with additional seasonal staff during the busy season. We have been working with Tellwright Consulting for four years. As well as managing our regular HR requirements such as keeping our staff handbook, contracts and systems updated and compliant with employment law Mel has also helped us to develop our performance management systems. Mel takes the time to understand the business and the employees so that HR advice is tailored to meet the needs of the individual and particular circumstance. We have found that Tellwright consulting is flexible in the way they work with us. Costs are tailored according to the needs and size of the business such that when Fleurie purchased another company recently the TUPE project work was handled differently to the subsequent expansion of our HR requirements.

We had a new employee due to start and we wanted to ensure we were fully legal, compliant and covering ourselves if anything was to happen with this employee down the road. I called Mel and we discussed the role and within a few hours we had the offer letter and contract ready to send. Once I approved it Mel sent it directly to the new employee to sign. This was such an easy and professional experience for me and the new employee. I found Mel to be extremely knowledgeable and efficient. My previous contract had our commission structure within the contract. Mel pointed out that this would cost me a fortune if the employee went on long term sick or was off work for any other reason. Mel's help and advice was invaluable to our business and we look forward to working with her again in the very near future. I have no hesitation in recommending Mel and Tellwright Consulting to other BNI members.
