What our members are saying:

"We recently transferred to Ai Group and were encouraged to take advantage of the HR Diagnostic tool. The tool was a short investment of time to obtain a comprehensive report, with the follow-up phone consultation with an HR expert providing a personalised action plan. Catherine is very knowledgeable, using her years of experience to provide practical examples and realistic solutions."

Emma Forbes, Omega Technical Engineering

"The HR Diagnostic Tool and free consultation provided insight and great conversation to discuss results. I could identify areas for improvement and how to go about achieving this. Catherine, the consultant, was very knowledgeable and able to articulate that knowledge well. I would highly recommend the HR Diagnostic Tool as it provided a great resource to identify some of the informal processes I have in place, and reinforce their importance. I found talking to a HR practitioner with practical experience added another layer to the consultation as they were speaking from a similar place and I could relate to what they were saying ."
