Based in Doncaster, OneSite Laser is a leading supplier of cut and formed parts. The team has over 60 years’ worth of knowledge on the supply and cut of high-grade materials to the engineering and construction industries. We spoke to MD, Shaun, to find out how Howarths supports the business.
Hi Shaun. How long has OneSite Laser been working with Howarths?
Shaun: We’ve been a client since the very beginning. We were introduced to Howarths back in 2005 when the founder, Andy Howarth, had recently started the business. Howarths helped us create an employment contract for our first-ever employee.
How does working with Howarths help support your business?
Shaun: Howarths has supported us with advice, guidance, and training around employment law issues since the beginning of OneSite Laser. Back then, Andy took me under his wing as he realised I didn’t understand the fundamentals of employment law, but I needed to! He did a very good job with me and should be proud of the team he’s built.
Tell us about a time when working with Howarths has helped you achieve a positive business outcome for OneSite Laser.
Shaun: From the creation of our staff handbook, to implementing new policies and creating a safe, compliant and well-trained team, every time we use Howarths it is positive. Every single one of our HR contracts, policies and procedures has been created by Howarth’s, and every team member, from the front of house team to the advisory staff, provides exemplary service.
How has Howarths supported you as your business has grown?
Shaun: Working with Howarths is like having a tough older sibling looking out for you if you get into a scrap. Giving legal guidance to people who don’t necessarily understand the subject area is very difficult, but the way the Howarths team explains what we need to know is exemplary. Their guidance is always clear, concise, consistent and focused.
How would you describe the way Howarths approaches problem solving and working with you?
Shaun: Words cannot describe how head of employment law and business immigration, Charlotte Geesin, can handle my interpretations of life and events. There should be medals given out by the Queen for Charlotte! All the Howarths team works to a standard not seen at other companies, and Charlotte takes it to another level.
Why would you recommend Howarths to others?
Shaun: Everyone should be using Howarth’s, end of!
