Managing Under Performance

Performance issues in the workplace, whether capability or conduct, will have an impact in the workplace in terms of: the team morale, productivity, disruption, poor customer service, which in turn is a cost to the business.

After a very distressing time in my employment caused by bullying and discrimination I finally found Castle Associates. I was very impressed by the speed and service provided by Castle Associates. I would strongly recommend this company and know from my own experience they are genuine.

From the moment I met Laura from Castle Associates I felt at ease and confident that she would ensure that I would be well represented. Until that point the whole situation felt very one sided, with me feeling as if I would never get the chance to properly present my side of the argument.

After working for the same company for many years my Daughter was made redundant. Before we looked into any legal aspect of the way the selection process was managed we felt that the whole process had been unfair and discriminatory.

After twenty five years working for a business I was suspended without warning and threatened with disciplinary action. I received very valuable support and professional help at a very difficult time.

I have used the services of Castle Associates on two occasions. In both cases I have found them to be professional, caring and thorough. They helped me through the minefield of employment laws and in both cases the conclusion was extremely satisfactory.

As I had a disappointing experience with my own union, I was apprehensive to instruct Castle Associates to act on my behalf, however after speaking to Mark Ferron (MD) he instantly gained my complete trust and confidence.

I was involved in being beaten up at work by a colleague who committed GBH on me resulting in a bleeding mouth, bruising and two fractured ribs. There were no witnesses and my employer seemingly attempted to get us both sacked regardless.

I recently had to use Castle Associates to help me with a grievance process I had taken out against my employer. They guided and advised me through a very stressful process and I truly believe the outcome (which was good) was down to the representation I had.
