Case Study – Barr Group

– Our outsourced HR support specifically focusses on employee engagement.


The Barr Group is an award winning construction company we’ve worked with for nearly six years, providing a range of HR interventions to the business.

We have taken an innovative approach to outsourced HR Support and consultancy with the Barr Group, which has resulted in an improved service in terms of employee engagement. The traditional approach to this type of HR support, especially within the construction industry, would be to simply provide a transactional service on HR matters, reacting to issues as they arise. Our outsourced HR support specifically focusses on employee engagement including annual business planning, facilitating employee input into this plan and leadership development training. This has ensured the Barr Group has an effective Workforce Development plan with a leadership team equipped with the skills to ensure effective employee engagement as the business grows.

The Leadership at the Barr Group are now empowered to take decisions, with the wider teams able to contribute to the business objectives and the Managing Director being able to more effectively delegate and focus on driving his business forward.

Our HR consultancy support is a contributing factor for the Company’s culture of employee engagement and business growth.

Managing Director Stuart Barr has confirmed as part of this award application that, “We’ve worked with SYLO Associates for a number of years now, they’ve taken us from a small business to a multi-million pound company with their incredible support and advice! We have carried out all types of training with them, employee engagement programmes, one to one coaching and they’re always there for any HR matters. Everything is in plain English and tailored to suit our company’s needs”.
