Case Studies

At Croner, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional customer service. No matter what service you require, we’ll deliver it quickly, confidently, and to your standards.

On this page, you’ll find a number of business, health & safety, pay & reward, and HR case studies from a range of clients. In these testimonials, you’ll see a unique approach to a variety of problems. From conduct to bullying, plant equipment to company drivers, salary benchmarking to gender pay reports.

“The key is to set realistic customer expectations, and then not to just meet them, but to exceed them – preferably in unexpected and helpful ways.” – Sir Richard Branson

 

Where to start

As an employer, you’re probably looking for a specific type of testimonial. So here’s where to begin, if you’re looking for:

  • An HR management case study, we recommend Cytoplan
  • A small business case study, we recommend Gilmour Quinn
  • An association case study, we recommend the CIPD or REC
  • Health & safety case study, we recommend BIF Services Ltd

And finally, if you’re looking for a pay and reward case study, we recommend the SBA

 

An experience worth sharing

If you’d like to discuss the service you’ve received from Croner, you can leave us a review through Feefo, or email our marketing team at marketing@croner.co.uk
