After hiring Samantha as a Business Consultant more than once in 2011 I can honestly say she was expert, I got great results and good value too! Samantha has worked for me on two projects, both involved employment law, she is very knowledgeable and delivers excellent service with high integrity and excellent value for money. I would highly recommend Samantha for all business affairs.

I first heard about Acorn Resource Services Limited through their recommendation to me by colleague. I did not consider using any other ‘people solution’ firms because the recommendation was very good. I chose Acorn Resource Services because I was told their services were excellent and I have to say, their services really are – excellent! Recommending Acorn Services to others will be a pleasure because I was very satisfied with their excellent service. In my opinion they are affordable,,excellent and offer a very professional service; they have good time keeping and excellent customer service!

We at Kingsborough Centre have known Samantha Atanda for the last 5yrs and have engaged with her as regards to our HR requirements after her selfless commitment to the provision of HR consultancy on a voluntary basis as part of her commitment to the charity the Board of Trustees of Kingsborough Centre was greatly impressed with quality of service and unanimously agreed to fully engage the services of Acorn Resources Services on a retainer ship basis to provide all their HR needs. Over the years we have found the services of Sam and Acorn Resource Services to be very valuable in all areas of our business, we have benefited from their great expertise in number of ways including effectively supporting our recruitment process to appoint very competent staff, providing coaching and one to one leadership training for our management team to enable them to effectively manage staff, address poor performance, develop staff and smoothly resolve conflicts between staff and the organisation without resulting to legal dispute.. On the odd occasions when staff had left they have done so without any ill feeling towards management or the organisation based on the quality of advice we continuously receive from Acorn Resource Services. We would recommend Acorn Resource Service to any organisation based on the consistent quality, excellent and tailor made services. You would find their prices competitive and value for money.
