We work across many employment sectors, public and private and we aim to provide a professional, cost-effective approach to human resources management whatever size of business you operate. We ensure that your HR issues are handled sensibly and not in a bureaucratic way, with experienced HR Consultants to provide expert advice.

Our services are at the heart of delivering the transformation and achieving the excellence and efficiency required by the downward pressure on finances and requirement for service improvements. Each member of the team has a track record as a qualified and senior HR professional.

We bring together experience from a range of sectors including housing, education, health, local government and private sector providing us with an in-depth understanding of your needs and requirements combined with a breadth of professional knowledge and experience. The breadth of our HR, Learning & Development and Governance Services is extensive and covers recruitment, developing pay and reward and improving performance and organisational efficiency.

As standalone services or as a complete and joined up programme of advice and interventions, we work with our clients to help them achieve the most effective and engaged workforce for their organisation.

EMA offers experience, insider knowledge and market-leading good practice, coupled with a level of flexibility and personal service that some larger consultancies only pay lip service to.We take time to understand your needs and your business objectives and work hard to deliver the results you want. That’s why over 90% of our clients keep coming back to us and why we continue to grow.
