Being Human at has been supporting the Percipient team and myself over a number of years as the business has grown. I have always found them to give commercially focused advice which is tailored absolutely to the needs of the business. They get to know your business and your aspirations, ensuring that you have the people management strategies in place to make it all happen.

Being Human at have been part of our team for a number of years and are always available to share straight forward practical advice. I have seen the team grow from a small consultancy to a well-respected HR & Leadership development partner whilst keeping the personal touch which drew me to work with them initially.
As we continue to grow as an organisation, working with Being Human at ensures that we have more than just a HR consultancy by our side.

We've been working with the team for a number of years and it's been a great experience. They have not only helped with all the HR nitty gritty but also supported me in instilling Cunning Plans values into the team, helping with reviews, recruitment and even ideas around new business. I would have no hesitation recommending working with them.
