Fusion have been providing HR Business Partner and HR Admin support to BDAT since the Trust was formed in 2012. A rigorous tender process was undertaken in early 2016 and FusionHR was awarded the Trust-wide contract to provide support to the central team and all academies. In all our dealings with Fusion we have found the advice and guidance to be timely, relevant and effective. Complex HR issues are dealt with in a compassionate, efficient manner and with the urgency required. Whichever HR Business Partner we talk to, we are always given options and recommendations from people who understand the ethos of the Trust and how the Trust works. Fusion are good at highlighting the risk of a particular course of action and then at mitigating the risk to the Trust. The approach is always calm, measured and personal. The HR Admin support is very efficient with contracts and documentation completed accurately and in good time. Support from the Business Partners to the recruitment process for key appointments is first class. Professional development courses put on by Fusion are apposite, informative and good value. We have developed a strong partnership with Fusion at many levels and look forward to continuing the partnership into the future.
