At SmartHR, Corporate Social Responsibility is important to us…we are a socially responsible employer actively supporting the local community.
SmartHR is a long-time supporter of Junior Achievement Isle of Man (‘JAIOM’), a Manx registered charity dedicated to addressing the social and economic challenges faced by young people. We are proud to have sponsored various events over recent years. JAIOM uses cutting-edge experiential learning to help young people in education to transform their future and their own economic success. With the help of over 500 volunteers, JAIOM runs programmes covering all schools in the Isle of Man that focus on financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. All of SmartHR’s team volunteer for JAIOM to support the local community.
We are excited to be the joint main sponsor of JAIOM’s The Next Big Thing 2019 talent competition and look forward to auditions starting in October 2018 and the competition final in February 2019.
We are delighted to be sponsoring Selborne Badminton Club for the 2017, 2018 and 2019 badminton seasons. Selborne is a long-established Manx Badminton Club with a number of teams playing at all levels within the Isle of Man Badminton League. SmartHR’s sponsorship helps to buy much needed equipment for the teams and rental of practice space. We wish all the players at ‘SmartHR Selborne’ every success for the season ahead!
We have also previously supported the Isle of Man Art Society and the Manx Breast Cancer Support Group, a Manx charity dedicated to fundraising and improving breast cancer services on the Isle of Man, by sponsoring a Waiting Area at their Breast Unit.
“I recently attended the “Developing a High-Performance Culture” seminar given by Emma Walker of SmartHR. The session was thought provoking, informative and enjoyable. In a relatively short period of time Emma was able to cover a broad subject, give us the opportunity to share our collective experiences and learn about some of the leading HR perspectives. I will be looking out for more presentations and workshops led by Emma and SmartHR.”Neal Kelly – Operations Director, PDMS Ltd – Nov 2018
“Dear Gail, Jo and I wanted to thank you for delivering Equality training to our Recruitment Consultants and Administration Team this morning. Feedback was great, they found the content and delivery spot on – targeted, effective and full of practical applications and examples. It’s so valuable in terms of time and impact to have design and delivery of training tailored specifically to the needs of our industry, business and teams. Much appreciated, and we’ll certainly recommend to any of our clients seeking similar support.”Debbie Scrimshaw – Director, Paragon (HR & Recruitment) Ltd – Oct 2018
“In transitioning from being part of a large FTSE250 Company with all the support of the Group Functions to being a standalone entity, we engaged with SmartHR to help us establish all our new HR policies and procedures, including a new Staff Manual and staff contracts. Doing so has proved to be one of the best decisions we made: what at first seemed a mountain to climb was quickly and efficiently dealt with by Gail whose engaging manner and deep knowledge of her subject allowed her to quickly assess our existing group policies and tailor them to meet our new needs with the minimum of fuss. Since then she has also proved to be an invaluable confidante and adviser on HR matters across the board and I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending her and her company.”John Tottenham – Managing Director, Zeffyr Services Limited – Sept 2018
“SmartHR provided a thorough, professional, first class service to the Gambling Supervision Commission. Gail and Julia were super to work with, understood our issues, provided options and made recommendations that are now starting to bear fruit. The Commission continues to use SmartHR for advice and support in the on-going development of its HR practices and I would have no hesitation in recommending Gail and her team to any organisation.”Steve Brennan – Chief Executive, Gambling Supervision Commission – Sept 2018
“Nedgroup Investments engages SmartHR to provide advice and guidance on a wide variety of human resources related matters. The current changes and updates to employment law affect all employers and it is vital that we adhere to best practice at all times. Gail provides a knowledgeable and efficient service and with her guidance we can be sure that our HR procedures and processes align with the highest industry standards. Working with Gail at SmartHR is a highly cost effective method of engaging a professional HR resource and her patient expertise is always only a phone call away.”Tracey Wiltcher – Director, Nedgroup Investments – Sept 2018
