Sue’s clients appreciate her ability to adapt quickly to constantly changing business situations and priorities and her practical, commercial approach to HR.

Sue is a consummate professional. She is a great problem solver. She is always enthusiastic and empathetic and has a friendly fun demeanour. She always offered expert, useful advice to her non-HR colleagues in ways that make her thinking seem immediately obvious and sensible. I have enjoyed working with Sue in both RACQ and Suncorp where she demonstrated excellence and was duly rewarded with promotions and accompanying responsibilities. There are some people you come across at work who inspire confidence. That would be Sue.
Sue provided services for Ether Solutions concerning an HR matter. Sue was flexible in terms of making arrangements and having conversations outside of core work hours. She delivered a personal service in a very competent manner and was able to explain the HR aspects in the context of Ether Solutions
Working with Sue Pardy at face2faceHR has been one of my more enjoyable tasks. Her approach is both friendly and professional and she always gives me more to think about. Like many small employers, I do not have a great deal of HR skill, so I needed guidance to produce correct employment documents for our staff. I know that I can always call on Sue for really good clear advice and would happily recommend her services.
Contacted Sue to resolve issues with staff member on probation. I received supportive, professional advice which enabled me to sort the issue. Thoroughly recommend.
Thank you face2faceHR Milton Keynes. As a growing business we have to constantly work in keeping up with staff contracts and policies.
face2faceHR and Sue in particular has helped us so much with the provision of 1st class information of which business owners require to keep their company on the straight and narrow.

She is clear, easy to work with and incredibly positive when dealing with complex HR issues. I would highly recommend Sue Pardy and face2faceHR for anybody looking for HR advice, support and/or consultancy.
It was clear from the first time I met Sue that she was a very thorough and professional person to work with, and this combined with her exceptional people skills meant I knew we would work well together – this was essential when dealing with over 130 direct reports.
Sue’s attention to detail and risk-conscious nature enabled me to pursue all matters from inception to conclusion with confidence. Never once did I doubt Sue’s judgement, and all results reflected this.
Sue assisted with my issue in a knowledgeable and professional manner, giving me options to consider. On a personal level, she was also empathetic and kind during a stressful time for me. Thank you Sue.
Sue is great to work with – she is fast to respond, hugely knowledgeable and has a pragmatic approach. She really understands the pressures of an SME and her calm, real-world perspective is exactly what’s required. It is great having access to an expert in the field of HR who understands our business. I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Sue has been a huge help at a difficult time for us, helping us to successfully navigate a potentially tricky situation with the right balance of sensitivity and formality. She is now our go-to HR consultant. Highly recommended.
As a small business owner I really welcomed the way in which Sue worked, I know we’ll work with her again and again. Sue offers exactly what her business is called … “face2faceHR”.
After our initial emails we sat down at a table, I took my necessary paperwork and said help! I was given ample time to talk through my business and Sue quickly identified the HR issues requiring my attention. Plus, what was even better … she spoke my language, making sure I was aware of what HR technical jargon meant to me and my business. I commissioned Sue to produce a Contract for Services which we now use as the backbone of our relationship with the self-employed entities we work with.
Sue’s involvement has given me confidence that we operate in a legally sound way, she’s added great value to the business and it is comforting to know she’s right there if we need her going forward. Thanks Sue, we wouldn’t be where we are without you.
Sue is a results driven, compassionate HR professional who works hard to build robust relationships with her clients, whilst always challenging them to ensure that the right decisions are made. The experience that Sue can bring to a wide range of businesses will always ensure HR excellence. I would recommend Sue without reservation and enjoyed working with her at Aviva.
Excellent service and very knowledgeable on all things HR. A valuable resource for any small business.
Sue at face2faceHR has been a complete diamond helping us sort out contracts for new staff, how to calculate part-time staff holidays, a staff handbook and guide us through the hiring and firing process! Sue is friendly, easy to talk to and very professional, her advice and knowledge has put my mind at ease with the dreaded HR and made it a lot less dreaded. Working with Sue has saved me a lot of time so I can focus on the business.
Thank you Sue for all your help with my staff contracts and information. I can recommend Sue from personal experience; if you need help with your HR then go and have a chat. She is an amazing lady and very reasonable, you also know that you’re getting it done the right way.
