Who We Work With

"Succeed have a strong retail background and they are a perfect fit for Pret in respect of their entrepreneurial style and approach. They obviously have considerable PeopleSoft knowledge but are also creative – they look to understand our processes, then suggest improvements on these for the best solution. In terms of delivery, Succeed 'show and tell' all the way through. They do not go off on a tangent and deliver in large 'chunks' – they deliver like a jigsaw puzzle so we can see the solution building."

Jeremy Hinds, Project Manager, Pret a Manger
"Succeed were agile in aligning with BT methodologies and worked on the HR platform for BT over a period of significant change for the company, but throughout this maintained a culture of single-minded delivery focus and ethical consulting."
"Succeed were on a very tight deadline with the implementation of our system. We had limited time to resolve problems but Succeed were innovative in their thinking and creative in finding solutions. This demonstrated team spirit and a real desire to deliver. Succeed’s approach to managing the implementation project and also managing the ongoing support with Fortis/ABN was and continues to be a success, mostly down to their ability to effectively translate their project management and technical skills into something tangible and understandable to their clients. Succeed work with us in a true partnership and we work together towards delivering effective"

Louise Thomas, HR, ABN AMRO
"Succeed have been brilliant leading the project and we were delighted that it was successful and delivered on time. They guided me through the technical world to deliver Ourhub after months of frustration internally to get the idea on the map. It was done in a very considered way and risks and dependencies were highlighted which I would not have appreciated otherwise. At times I was unable to give the time which was required but Succeed kept going and prompted me in a very subtle and professional way so that the work was completed to a high standard. I would recommend Succeed to any future client."

Liz Phillips, Mitchells & Butlers
"Succeed are extremely flexible as a consultancy. They focus on delivery and always consider our needs, operating as a partner rather than a supplier."

BSkyB
"Succeed are a flexible, responsive and customer focused consultancy. Throughout their engagement with Unilever they have demonstrated a delivery focus and drawing on their internal network of expertise they consistently deliver against challenging timelines and show real customer focus. They have integrated quickly into the programme team and brought extensive knowledge of the PeopleSoft platform to the table. Succeed look to understand the bigger picture and always do what is needed to ensure the successful delivery of the programme as a whole."

Ian Campbell, Unilever

We’ve over a decade’s experience helping transform the workforces of blue-chip organisations, with a particular specialism in Retail, Finance and Professional Services. We work collaboratively as part of a client team, learning their processes, understanding the unique challenges of their business.

In the 12 years that Succeed has been running we have been privileged to help clients to transform their people systems and make life easier for their admin staff, managers and employees. Maybe that’s why we’ve enjoyed such enduring relationships with our clients.

Or maybe it’s because we’re human.

Human Solutions

As HR practice and technology evolves, remaining on the cutting edge means being both hi-tech and hi-touch. While we have built our reputation developing technological solutions, we believe the best answers lie in plugging the power of technology into human relationships.

Since I joined Succeed I have experienced my brain capacity being pushed to its limits time and time again and much like the rest of your body, it comes back stronger and more resilient. It’s just as well, because the learning curve doesn’t stop after the training.

The Succeed graduate training programme has been both challenging and rewarding and has exceeded all of my expectations. I am so glad I choose to work for a small company. I feel the support I get from all of the Succeeders and the opportunities to develop both professionally and personally would have been unparalleled in a large company.
