WE ARE A FAMILY RUN BUSINESS AND AS A RESULT HAVE FAMILY VALUES

We place significance on traits such as respect, honesty and integrity. These core principles run right through our business and as a result, in all our dealings with clients. We are old fashioned and expect good timekeeping, smart dress and polite manners. As a Howarths client, you’ll benefit from these traits as standard, and as it should be.

We have been in business almost 15 years now and only employ people who are specialists in their field.

In respect of our HR service, that means employing people either with, or working towards, CIPD qualifications. On employment law, that means people who have the relevant legal qualifications and have experience specialising in employment law and working with employers. On health and safety, it means those who have at least Grad IOSH Membership and years of experience working in health and safety. As a result of that depth of expertise, our clients can be sure that they are taking advice from people genuinely qualified to do so, and who can add real and tangible value to their business.

In addition to the above, at Howarths, we are real people. We drink tea, go on holidays with our loved ones, like sport and keep pets. We encourage individuality and personality and we channel this into creating a standout experience for our clients.

We call it ‘Howarths Way’ and it encapsulates our way of doing business.

Whenever a client comes into contact with Howarths, whether it is visiting the office, on the telephone or over email, we set ourselves very high standards to ensure warmth, friendliness and understanding. We judge ourselves on how well we all contribute to this experience for the client, in addition of course to our capabilities as advisors.

We try and give a little more. There will be companies charging a little less than ourselves, as there will those charging more. What we strive for is offering value for money; for example, as standard in our ‘one fixed fee, unlimited service’ , all our clients receive ILM accredited training resulting in a national recognised certificate. We include HR Software to help our clients with HR administration. We offer more health and safety visits and midterm reviews to ensure clients are still getting a great service, and unlimited face to face meetings at our premises.

“Finally, we genuinely have a conscience. We are a Living Wage employer and over the last 15 years have supported many local charities and will always do so.”

If we sound like a business that you could work with, please do get in contact; we’d love to speak to you and understand more about you and your business.
