Petaurum Solutions wins the Business and Industry Today Magazine Employment & HR Specialist of the Year

We are pleased to announce that we have won the Business and Industry Today Magazines prestigious award as their

Employment & HR Specialist of the Year. Below is the article published in this months edition.
Here at Business and Industry Today we are delighted to present Petaurum Solutions as our highly regarded Employment & HR Specialist of the Year. Founders and Company Directors, Adam Davey and Mark Dyer, set up the business in 2013, after realising there was a significant shortage of consultancies available that were dedicated solely to the provision of employment-based solutions. They found that the services accessible to them tended to incorporate a lot of jargon, and so the budding entrepreneurs decided to establish their own enterprise that would effectively resolve employee related issues using less complicated approaches. Situated in London, Lincoln and Ipswich, Petaurum Solutions provide UK wide support to their customers. Building on their experiences across a wide range of sectors, Adam and Mark have successfully developed a practical based one stop solution for employers wishing to develop or refine their HR provision. Petaurum design and implement a wide range of solutions, offering everything from benefit schemes, pension auto-enrolments, employment packages, HR management systems and payroll to project management and specific HR services. These solutions focus on and address the root cause of issues to help increase staff productivity and morale; which therefore helps increase both performance levels of employees and company profitability.
“Over the last year we have noticed that businesses are more prepared to invest in their people,” Adam told us. “After reducing workforces and implementing pay freezes during the recession, business owners are seeing the green shoots of recovery and so want to pay back employees for the sacrifices they have made. However, in some cases, simply increasing pay is not a viable option, so business owners are looking at ways to reward staff through employee benefits and performance-related pay etc.
“Whilst many HR providers are experts in managing the compliance processes associated with change, our expertise truly lies in working with businesses to understand their needs and develop a meaningful people strategy underpinned by clarity of purpose and accountability, that focuses on driving improved performance. Our proposition and approach positions us well to work with companies recognising the green shoots of recovery and wanting to push on. We continue to be passionate about what we do, Which is always a good sign of success!”

Petaurum Solutions is consistently striving to provide innovative solutions for their clients and the team are actively involved in further developing their existing products where possible. Recently they have invested a lot of time in listening to their clients and meeting their on-going needs – as a result they have developed a range of tailored products and services for different client groups. For example, they have developed a line of customisable Pensions Auto Enrolment packages specifically suited to trade and professional bodies in a move that will ease processing activity for these groups, who can now benefit from employing these appropriately tailored packages. The Pensions Auto Enrolment solution has proven very popular particularly because it provides both practical support, coupled with simple to use technology allowing businesses to easily undertake all of the statutory assessment and communication activity required under Pensions Auto Enrolment. Other innovations to note include Benefits Lite, which is an affordable Employee Benefits Scheme specifically developed for SMEs that provides the ability to provide employees with the opportunity to access discounts and offers normally reserved for employees of large companies.

When discussing recent changes and plans for the future, Adam said,
“The last 12 months have been a period of consolidation, as we have built on our existing products whilst branching into more partnership arrangements with organisations with as the Confederation of Roofing Contractors (CORC), Engineering Industries Association (EIA) and Henry Schein (a worldwide distributor of dental supplies, vaccines and pharmaceuticals). We have continued to grow our consultancy business through repeat business and referrals and have worked with a range of high profile companies to deliver their change agenda.
“After a year of moderate growth, our plan for next year is to grow in both our product and service-led markets. This will involve us opening another office, with the size of our team growing to ensure we continue to support our customers. All in all we are both delighted and honoured to be selected for this award as it acknowledges the hard work and effort we have put in to establish and grow our business to where it is today. In a crowded market where people can set up a HR consultancy with very little overheads and experience, this recognition provides us with a competitive edge to help us stand out from the crowd.”
The Petaurum Solutions team hold trade show attendance in high regard and subsequently appear at many industry- specific events throughout the course of the year in order to evoke interest from potential customers. This includes frequent participation at the Anglia Business Exhibition, the LEP Business Live in Lincoln and a presence at local Chamber of Commerce events.
