As a social enterprise we help businesses create the very best experience for employees, alongside profitability and performance growth for business owners.
The Condor Collective are a quirky blend of people person…(s) and data geeks. Through our background in recruitment, we have become experts in understanding the complexities of the workplace ecosystem and want to create change.
I found Paula’s style very easy to relate to – giving me some real food for thought but not just telling me what to do. You quickly grasped where I was coming from and were able to make pragmatic suggestions that showed me a way forward (and helped boost my confidence) but also asked insightful questions which made me reflect on the assumptions I was making or take a new perspective. Your experience clearly informs your mentoring approach but you don’t assume a one size fits all approach which I really valued.
We originally engaged the Condor Collective to conduct ‘the Happiness Survey’, which was our first ever companywide engagement survey carried out by an external party. We were thinking of using 100 Companies as they are well known, have benchmarks and lots of experience across many sectors, however we preferred the questions, the approach and the outcomes presented by the Condor Collective. The impact on the business has been very positive, they have challenged us in a difficult time and we have grown to be better thanks to their management training and engagement survey feedback.
Both Paula and Holly have a Construction background and this really helps them understand us and help us to grow in the right way to be better. We will be continuing the survey works every year and already have an objective to improve our score. Paula and Holly are always there to bounce ideas off and make it a pleasurable relationship where both parties are benefiting.
Paula and Holly have been fantastic in introducing us to this fantastic concept as well as delivering a clear and concise presentation on the results of our survey. We were unsure on how this could benefit us at first but it has helped us to understand the strengths and weaknesses we face as a workforce. It has provided us with insight into our employees day to day challenges which has helped us design a roadmap for the business. This will ultimately set us up for hiring and growth strategies we hope to engage in very soon and most importantly, maintain that happy team!
Working with The Condor Collective is brilliant. Paula provided sound and practical advice that really made us sit up and think seriously about our strategy and how we move the business forward. We have already made some crucial decisions we should have made some time ago, thanks to your advice. We hope to continue working with The Condor Collective for years to come.

I was part of a senior manager team that undertook emotional intelligence training with The Condor Collective. To be perfectly honest, I was more than a little skeptical at first however, this was quickly dismissed within the first session with Paula and the team. A combination of thought provoking discussion, real world examples and tangible techniques really allowed for frank and open debate and a genuine sea change in our collective understanding & appreciation of the importance of emotional intelligence in every interaction, business or otherwise!

Having been skeptical as to what information we would glean from The Happiness Survey, I was pleasantly surprised at how inspiring the process was. The Happiness Survey was a great business tool for identifying our business strengths and areas of work, with real life examples and quotes from the Phoenix ME team.
The Condor Collective deliver the information in an informative & actionable manner. We as the business leaders, were able to easily identify what work we need to do to ensure our team are as engaged as possible and celebrate the strengths we have identified by completing The Happiness Survey.
I look forward to continuing our working partnership with The Condor Collective.
The Condor Collective have been immensely helpful and knowledgeable in delivering The Happiness Survey Project. We have gained invaluable insights from the process – many of which we didn’t know were our strengths and highlighted key objectives we need to work on. We were very impressed at how the whole project is approached and just how much buy in we got from the team because of how inclusive your process is. We look forward to working with you across the next year to achieve our objectives!
