People Matters HR Crowned HR Consultancy of the Year

"Its an absolute honour to be on a continual winning streak and to be named The Corporate LiveWire HR Global Consultancy of the year really is the icing on the cake."
Niel Cope, MD People Matters HR

Leading Bury HR Consultancy People Matters HR are ending the year on a high after being crowned the Corporate LiveWire HR Consultancy of the Year in the Corporate LiveWire Global awards.


The prestigious award comes hot on the heels of scooping a clutch of top accolades over recent months.

The company, which manages the outsourced HR for some of the North West’s leading businesses, has won three top national business awards, including:


·         HR Consultants of the Year award for central England 2020/21 in the England Prestige Awards,

·         Most Outstanding HR Services Provider in the UK 2020 in the Global Excellence Awards

·         Most Trusted HR provider in the North West 2020 in the UK Enterprise awards



All three accolades celebrate small and medium-sized enterprises that have thrived and have proven their success over the past 12 months. Winners are selected via a two step process, beginning with a nomination and are then judged on a range of criteria including marketing and branding, business growth methods, online and offline exposure, customer experience and approach to new ideas.


Managing Director Niel Cope said:


“It’s an absolute honour to be on a continual winning streak and to be named The Corporate LiveWire HR Global Consultancy of the year really is the icing on the cake. We know we do a great job for our clients, and to be recognised and rewarded on a national level confirm this to the wider business community.”


In addition, earlier in the year People Matters were awarded the Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday award, where the company was selected by the Dragon’s Den star from thousands of applicants to join an exclusive #sbs club, opening up a wealth of networking and publicity opportunities.
