We joined up with Aventi in December 2008 and it is one of the best decisions we have ever made. At that point HR problems were taking up a huge amount of our time and it felt like we were constantly fire fighting. What is more we felt that our existing HR advice provider was consistently letting us down. The support we received from them was highly technical, risk averse and we were unable to build up any kind of relationship with them, never able to speak to the same adviser twice. Further, we felt that they had little interest in and no understanding of the third sector or the particular pressures facing charitable and not for profit organisations. Justine and Aventi were completely different. We quickly built up a strong relationship and over the years Aventi has developed the skills and confidence of my managers who are now able to deal with routine HR issues effectively, nipping many potential problems in the bud. Fire fighting days are over! If we do have a problem that needs professional advice we find that the advice we get from Aventi is timely, understandable and ultimately helps us solve whatever problem we are facing. Justine approaches all problems no matter how bizarre with expertise, calm and pragmatism. Aventi has excellent experience of working with diverse organisations including charities and social enterprises and has a thorough understanding of the third sector. I would have no hesitation in recommending Justine and Aventi to any organisation looking for tailored, good value HR support and advice.
