”Elcons have provided our business with an HR solution that we didn’t think would be possible’’ 

‘’Elcons do exactly what it says on the tin and have the knowledge and experience to cover every area that’s required’’ 

‘’They are a fantastic company to work with and have provided great support in an area we have always struggled with in the past!!”

James Harper, Director 

“I recently had the need to utilise your services regarding some employee issues, the representative who assisted me was Terrie. Her approach was professional, warm, empathic and efficient and she made the whole process so much easier. Well done on employing such conscientious and capable good staff!

We are as a nation quick to complain but I believe praise is equally as important. Thank you.”

Janine Hulme, Bongospares

Here’s what our clients have to say on “The Disciplinary Process” training course,


“This course gives me more confidence in investigation/disciplinary process and ensuring we don’t’ make mistakes”


“Excellent trainer, good overview but with further detail where/when required”


“Absolutely fantastic”


“Jo was fantastic as always”



“To sum up my experience of Elcons in one word so far it would be Amazing!

Our company have been using Elcons for just over 2 months now and I genuinely cannot speak highly enough of them. I have not been in my current role for long I came from a team of 12 HR professionals to just me as a HR department. Elcons have given me the confidence, guidance and support needed to deal with any challenges I have faced while being in my new role – which to date has been a lot which hasn’t seemed to phase them one bit!

Although you are assigned once main advisor, if they are unavailable another advisor is more than happy to step in and deal with the query.

Elcons also provide training sessions included within the advice service. The training has been invaluable and has given us a better understanding of employment law and what you can and can’t say!

The best advice would be to give Elcons a try, we used the service on a real life case before we signed up and the advice and support we were given was excellent from start to finish.

I am one very happy customer!“.

“We have used Elcons for a number of years and their consultancy is second to none. They take you through every step of any HR process and provide bespoke letters and advice to help you get the correct outcomes for any HR issue you may have. Their ability to second guess and react is what makes them so good.

We were recently represented at an Employment Tribunal and because of their advice the claimant’s complaint was dismissed”.

Reece Safety

“I thought I would write a short note to thank you for your hospitality today at the training course. We have sent six managers on the various employment courses which they have all found beneficial. It has certainly improved the management of our staff and the business. Your service in supporting us with answering questions and queries is excellent and has proved a cost effective way to manage our employment issues. We have recently subscribed to the Health & Safety option which again has proved extremely beneficial to our managers. I have referred two other companies to yourself, both personal friends, and they have also been delighted with the service”.

David Jones, Grant and Bowman Limited

“We have used Elcons for a few years now. We particularly like Elcons flexibility and
adaptability to our individual needs. What we get with Elcons is straight advice. Within Elcons we have a dedicated employment advisor who knows our organisation inside out. We never have to explain our problems numerous times to different advisors. Our queries are dealt with in a very timely manner. All our policies and documents are taken care of. Elcons have helped us move from a very turbulent time in our acquisition and merger. We are now a stable and organised practice as a result. We are so happy with Elcons that we asked for a 5 year renewal instead of the usual three years”.

Managing Partner, H.T.Practice

“We have been receiving advice from Elcons for the last three years, All staff have provided us with a first class HR consultancy service. We always receive a high level of support delivered in a very friendly but informative way – with their extensive knowledge they provide great comfort and reassurance to the Senior  Management Team. Elcons have provided us with key advice and guidance when handling disciplinary issues, everything from letters of concern, through to verbal or written warnings, to final written warnings and dismissal for gross misconduct – their support and advice has been invaluable. Everything is handled in a timely manner including follow up letters and documentation. I would strongly recommend their professional services to anyone, whatever the size of Company”.

Transac Solutions Limited

“Many thanks again for a brilliant and motivating training session at your offices this morning. Fairhome Property Group hugely value the support and guidance that Elcons deliver to our ever expanding organisation. Today we took the decision to bring out 4 senior directors (which included 2 MD’s of our Group subsidiaries, FPDL and FPML) and the feedback on the journey back to Manchester was absolutely first class on the session both in the quality of delivery and content. Elcons desire to get ‘under the surface’ of the organisations you support and provide free training as part of the package sets you aside from your competitors ‘arm’s length approach’. We have set the objective to complete all staff appraisals / filed with SMART objectives across the group by the end of January 2016. How’s that for instant impact!”

Colin Gore, Group Operations Director, Fairhome Property Group 

“Thank you for all of your support today and over the past few weeks. Having one port of call to deal with any issues is amazing (rather than the lucky dip that is XXXXX). The speed in which you respond to any raised issue is truly staggering and always professional. Joining Elcons has been the best decision Care Counts has made (and we are only a few months in!) wow! Knowing that the yourself and the Elcons team is at the end of a telephone line or an email gives me the breathing space as a manager to perform all of my duties without the tedium of HR and what it can entail, thank you!!”

Jay Williamson, General Manager, Care Counts Limited

“A few times last year we have had to use your services, Debra has been the main contact and what a help she has been.

I have, in the past, found myself in hot water with regard to HR issues and have also been rather worried about how to deal with certain individuals. Debra has been fantastic and not once have I had to deal with an issue without the confidence that Debra has instructed me and that I know what I am doing is not only morally correct but legally compliant also.

She is an absolute credit to your business and I would recommend your services and Debra especially to any organisation.”

Will Shaw, Director, LIS Claims

Professional, friendly and supportive!

From the first call we had with the Elcons team, we were amazed at their friendly and professional approach.

Elcons have offered us expert advice and direction for all our employment needs, from contracts to advice relating to employment issues and court proceedings. The guidance and support they have given us has been invaluable, nothing phases them! The team has certainly made my life easier and I know I have expert advice at the end of the phone whenever I need it which is invaluable to me and our organisation.  The training course they are offer are informative and interesting with great learning outcomes.  I highly recommended Elcons the whole team is fantastic.

Sharon Archibald, Operations Lead, Our TLC Ltd

We have found utilising Elcons services to be a very cost effective way of ensuring we are doing everything correctly without the cost of employing our own HR manager, this being especially important when you  are growing quickly. It also ensures we don’t have to worry about staying up to date on employment legislation as Elcons will always advise us of any changes we need to be aware of.

Bruce Davie, Managing Director , Zen Office

I was on the Teams training yesterday and wanted to email you personally to say thank you so much. I have just been promoted to office manager overseeing the recruitment, admin and reception teams here and this is the first such training with Elcons I have attended, and I was blown away.

It was crammed full of interesting and useful tips and guidance that we can definitely use in our setting together with lots of laughs  – so much so that my team thought I was watching a comedy film!

I will be recommending that some of our other managers attend Elcons training in the future as there is certainly lots to be gained to help us leading our teams successfully.

I look forward to more of the same.

We have been using the services of Elcons since December 2015 and have just renewed our contract for a further three years.

We use their services on a day to day basis for employment law advice, finding their advisors to be of the highest standard. Nothing is too much trouble and we are always greeted in an extremely pleasant manner whenever we make contact.

The advice given is accurate, fair and always fully explained. Elcons provide all documentation and drafts of correspondence to send out in every case.

Johanna ensured that our contracts of employment were accurate and up to date and worked well for our business. She has a remarkable hands on approach that gets the job done timely and efficiently.

We have taken advantage of the free training courses provided. These have been informative and enjoyable and have given me increased confidence in dealing with different situations within the business.

The Health and Safety advice is also to a very high standard. We have found this invaluable when applying for accreditations within our industry.

We have the greatest of confidence in Elcons and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to any business.

Director, Vanguard Security Services Ltd

In March 2018, I made a relatively senior hire into my business. Sadly, it emerged very quickly that the new employee had made exaggerated claims about his skills and experience to secure the role. After assessing his suitability for the role on the job and trying to provide appropriate training, we concluded that he was unable to successfully perform even the basic tasks in his job specification, which led to a mutual decision to terminate his employment.

A month later, the individual brought a claim against me for disability discrimination, alleging that he had been dismissed after revealing he had dyslexia. This claim was for nearly £16,000 for a mere 12 days of employment.

I employed the services of two separate law firms to handle the matter for me, costing thousands of pounds in legal fees, only to be advised that making an out-of-court settlement would be preferable to attending a tribunal. This did not sit well with me, since I felt that doing so would imply liability, when my conscience was clear that I had acted fairly and without discrimination. The run-up to the trial was one of the most stressful experiences of my life to date, causing many a sleepless night.

Two weeks prior to the Tribunal, I received a call from Elcons to ask if I wanted any assistance with the matter. I was, admittedly, quite closed off, given my outlay in legal fees and the lack of sound advice thus far. However, I agreed to have a conversation with John Peel that evening. John is the Managing Director of Elcons and took the time to listen to the ins and outs of the case and he came across as extremely knowledgeable about employment law, finding holes in the claim against me in just that first conversation. He reassured me that given the right support, I should be successful at the tribunal.


In the run-up to the Tribunal, the Elcons team were incredibly efficient in helping prepare thoroughly for the hearing, whilst removing the stress of having to deal with the responses to Tribunal and the claimant’s representative.

When John represented me, I was so impressed at how he handled the case, from liaising with the judge and his panel, to cross-examining the claimant with questions that were so well thought out that the unjustified grounds of the claim unravelled in front of the whole room.

The end result was that the judge and his two laymen ruled unanimously in my favour. My initial response was to burst into tears that an ordeal spanning 12 months had finally been drawn to a justified close.

I am beyond delighted at my decision to work with John and his Team. I could not have asked for a better result, nor sounder advice in the run-up to the hearing. Needless to say, I am now working with Elcons for all my HR needs on an ongoing basis, which gives me complete peace of mind that my HR function and business, is now in a very safe hands.
