About Us

Who we are

We, Sarah (Stevens) and Sally (White) started SYLO | Beyond HR. in 2010, with the focused aim to provide clear and trusted HR advice and support to businesses in the local area, such as recruitment and performance management support, to name a few. Our proactive approach of working in partnership with our Clients has seen the business grow from just us, to over 20 Associates, working not just in SME and Not for Profit organisations, but also National and International businesses, across a multitude of sectors.

We believe passionately in providing an integrated working solution to any issue you may have, large or small. With feedback from our Clients, SYLO | Beyond HR. has increased its remit beyond HR to a full range of services including: People Support including Coaching, Recruitment, Performance Management, Business Strategy, Learning & Development, plus Health & Safety. We know your people are your most important asset so, our focus will always be on ensuring they are working, happily, to their maximum capacity, whilst delivering your Business aims and objectives.

What we focus on

At SYLO | Beyond HR., we take our Values very seriously, as we look to incorporate them in all our working practices, whether it’s with our Employees, Suppliers, or Clients. Our focus is on helping you, your people, and your business work better together. We have a Calm, Clear, Collaborative approach, which concentrates on really understanding all your issues before proposing a tailored response. Our Business Model focuses on developing Strategic Partnerships built on Trust with a Proactive, personal approach. We also strongly believe in supporting the area where we work and live: supporting local schools on careers advice, charities with fundraising and free events, and promoting the benefits of CSR with local businesses.

How we work

Whatever the size of your challenge, we can help. Whether it’s HR documentation and polices that need updating, a full HR Audit, a disciplinary or grievance issue, a complete people reorganisation, a review of your business plans, training, specific coaching, recruitment and performance management, we will tailor our proposal to deliver your requirements.

You may require different members of our Team to focus on particular areas, such as People Support, Business Strategy, Learning and Development or Health & Safety, in addition to HR Essentials. Then through our bespoke Systems and Processes, we ensure all of the team are fully aware of all the work we are doing with you, so we can add real value to all aspects of your business through a fully integrated approach.

All our Clients are assigned to one of our Account Directors, who will oversee all the work you place with us. Then, depending on your requirements, we will assign one, or more, of our specialist Teams, to be your day-to-day contacts.

We operate in two ways, via our monthly Retainer Service or Pay-As-You-Go.  Our four Retainer tiers give you the flexibility to choose a level that matches your needs. They are perfect for businesses that need HR guidance but are not ready to employ a full-time HR person, or maybe have an HR person who needs more resources and support on ad hoc issues. They offer you peace of mind in that whatever HR or legal issue that arises, you have instant access to expert support and advice.
