You HR’s refreshingly vibrant approach to HR, the personalities in the team and the energetic leadership of founder and CEO, Jonna Mundy, were all key factors in B4’s original appointment, as B4’s CEO, Richard Rosser, explains, “We’ve known You HR for some time and they have always been a pleasure to deal with. A few years ago, Jonna and I had a conversation about the importance of having professional HR support in an increasingly complex world. We wanted to do everything right by our team and they deserved the support of someone independent to the B4 directors…You HR provide that and have proven themselves an invaluable extension of our B4 team. We wanted to recognise the important role You HR play for B4 and felt acknowledging them publicly as our Official HR Partner was entirely appropriate. As a team we have all benefited from You HR’s expertise and we can’t recommend Jonna and her excellent team highly enough.”
It’s a sentiment shared by members of B4’s team, with B4’s Designer, Photographer & Videographer, Rob Scotcher, adding, “You HR Consultancy have been working with us for many years now. The team are always professional, supportive, patient and understanding.” Senior Designer, Keith Simpson also values the support of You HR, “The You HR team always have a genuine interest in our wellbeing and are always available to answer any queries or give valuable advice.” Lorna Waterfield, as B4’s Production Manager and designated HR contact for You HR, has experienced their care and attention first hand more than anyone in the B4 team and said, “You HR have always taken the time to get to know our individual needs, interests and preferences and provide advice in such a friendly and supportive manner. Over the years they have become part of the team – we miss them if we don’t see them for a while!”
Another beneficiary of the You HR ‘gold dust’ are Sobell House who are supported by You HR through B4’s NEXUS programme which gives Sobell complimentary benefits of B4 membership. Tim Wraith, Sobell’s Corporate Partnerships Manager, commented “I am delighted that Sobell House has formed a partnership with You HR through the B4 Nexus Programme. Jonna, Ian and all the team there have become such great friends to both me and the hospice. In these difficult times we have already had two initiatives promoting both the partnership and the brilliant HR support they offer and we have other plans in the pipeline! ‘Its all about the people’ sums You HR up perfectly!”.
You HR have worked with B4 for several years now and have fostered one of the best aligned mutually benefiting business connections. This relationship has definitely built bridges in so many directions… B4 stands for ‘Building Bridges Between Businesses’ and that perfectly sums up the partnership.
The progressive benefits that B4 have offered to You HR in being a trusted member of the B4 community has led to so many opportunities, being the official HR partner is just one of those benefits. The You HR team have evolved with B4, and collaboratively gained a greater understanding of their aspirations as organisations with a shared purpose, to ensure the right actions are taken to achieve the right results and make a positive difference to the business community in Oxfordshire, not to mention their shared passion to support charitable organisations at every opportunity!
Emma Crossley, You HR’s Client Delivery Manager, has worked closely with B4 and said “B4 really are one of our model clients to work with, they get our ethos that when it comes to great business #itsallaboutthepeople! They positively embrace our philosophy of achieving business growth through applying great people management practice and it’s been an absolute joy to work with them and watch their business and people flourish over the years”. Ian Mundy, You HR Director of Strategy explains “I have been working with Richard and the B4 team through the many events and membership offerings available. I have the benefit in my role to relish in supporting B4 as an organisation and to join them on their journey to support SME businesses across Oxfordshire. Everyone at You HR is delighted that B4 have recognised our unique invaluable support as their official HR Partner, and we are also excited by the prospects that B4’s new approach, Nexus and so much more will bring for You HR and for B4.” Jonna Mundy, CEO of You HR summed up this solid business relationship by saying “Whilst we all face, for one reason or another, difficult times ahead as a result of the pandemic, B4’s resilience, like ours, is unshakable, and their continued determination gives hope to us all. Thank you Richard and Team, each and every one of you are amazing in your individual ways, from Lorna’s diligence, Keith’s creativity, Rob’s photographic brilliance and Richard’s sense of humour, you really are a splendid bunch to work with”.
