Sue Bailey Consulting is delighted to announce the formation of an alliance with HR People Support Ltd, Cheltenham’s trusted outsourced HR consultancy firm. 
Sue set up Sue Bailey Consulting in 2015 as a result of working as a senior HR professional in various companies. With the ambition to help small businesses implement best practice in HR, Sue has provided HR services to many happy clients and seen her small business clients grow as a result of putting people at the heart of their strategy. 
As a result of her successful 30-year career in HR, and as she looks ahead to taking a step back, Sue has formed an alliance with HR People Support to enable a smooth continuation of HR provision to her clients. 
Similarly, Sarah Cook, Managing Director and Founder of HR People Support set up the business in 2019 with a passion to support small and medium sized businesses with the best HR possible. 
From that pivotal moment of just her and one client, Sarah has grown HR People Support to now providing HR services to over 200 clients in Gloucestershire and beyond, and is ready to form an alliance to support the future growth of her own business and that of her client partners. 
Sue Bailey says of the alliance “I have chosen to work with and trust HR People Support as they are a well reputed, professional HR provider in the area, that holds values aligned with my own and has the very best people and resources to support local businesses to the most professional standard. Client partner happiness is of paramount importance to me, and this was significant in my decision making of who to partner with for the future. I have nurtured the relationships with my clients and ensuring their future success from an HR perspective when I step away is crucial”. 
Sarah Cook added “I am delighted to form this new alliance with Sue and become her trusted associate. This opportunity allows us to combine our expertise, to further enhance the performance of small and medium sized businesses in the area and nationally – something which my team and I pride ourselves on. I am looking forward to collaborating with Sue, meeting and building relationships with her client partners and to providing guidance and expert support from the start. I am very excited about the future of the business.” 
HR People Support will continue to be based in Festival House, Cheltenham, with a team of 8 staff. With aims to build on its 200 strong client base and growing reputation, Sarah and the team at HR People Support will work together with Sue as she embarks on the next chapter of her life. 
Sue Bailey Consulting Ltd will continue to trade, offering specialist consultancy services to the transport and logistics industry.

I am very honoured to have this new addition to the Alan R. Jones fleet named after me...! 
Among other routes, this impressive vehicle will be trunking to and from the Palletline network hub in Birmingham. 

Charity Dinner 

I was delighted to attend a charity dinner in aid of the Velindre Cancer Centre at the end of March, where Alan R. Jones & Sons Ltd presented a £3,000 cheque to support this worthy cause... 
As Head of HR for a regional building society and local Housing Association, I devised and implemented strategic people plans working collaboratively with other senior leaders. I have also managed interim project assignments in reward, recruitment, diversity and inclusion. 
I'm a big sports fan so, in addition to running my own business, I also carry out a voluntary role as President of the Gloucestershire County Netball Association. 
Incidentally, if you've lost your job and need some professional Outplacement Support, I am very happy to recommend Gilly Salter, director of GS Consultancy.
