Human resource professionals, Amica HR, credit BG Futures with playing a key role in putting them on course for commercial success.

The business incubation complex on the Bishop Grosseteste University campus provided the former home-based consultancy B&G HR with the perfect premises and support to supercharge their success.

Following rapid growth B&G HR rebranded and expanded to become Amica HR (with a sister venture Amica Legal).  Now they have two offices in Lincoln, a third in London along with a newly opened fourth office in Humberside.

When B&G HR started out, Director David Grech brought more than 10 years’ experience of human resources, employment law and leadership experience of working with SMEs and management teams going through rapid change, to the table.

He was joined by fellow Director Suzanne Tricker, an accomplished and committed HR professional, added a further 20 years’ experience in delivering HR solutions to clients across the public and private sectors.

This encompassed transformational advice on change management, restructures, outsourcing, TUPE transfers and redundancy situations.

Both were passionate about building meaningful partnerships with companies by providing them with a wide spectrum service, irrespective of their business sector. They also knew that B&G HR needed a respected business address which made the BG Futures centre an ideal location, as David explained:

“BG Futures Business & Enterprise Centre is a brilliant complex for fledgling businesses. With its professional reception, on-site support and its mix of tenants, means it offers ambitious businesses a safe starting point.

“Initially, we rented a small office in keeping with the size of our client base, but we also had enough room to take on an intern. A year later, we realised we needed twice the room to service our clients, but we were easily able to switch to a bigger office within BG Futures.

“What was so fantastic about this aspect was that we could upgrade without suffering any downtime or disruption to our day-to-day operations.”

Suzanne was also full of praise for the opportunities offered by BG Futures:

“We are convinced that starting out with a professional office helped us to attract more business and grow faster than we would have done otherwise. Usefully, BG Futures units are also come furnished and they are cost-effective to rent.

“It was great to build relationships with other businesses and to have other commercial expertise on site. We were also able to assist BGU by writing the HR Module for the Undergraduate Business Degree course, which will be taught to this year’s students.”

David and Suzanne know first-hand how challenging it can be when you are just starting out in business. They said it is vital to start out with the right attitude, a clear plan for growth and the right premises:

“Our advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is – believe in yourselves, write a clear business plan, base your business in premises tailored to your needs and which, ideally offer on-site support services. After that you will be able to concentrate on building trust in your clients and those word-of-mouth referrals will follow!”

Nikki Smith, Careers, Employability and Enterprise Advisor at BG Futures, expressed congratulations to Amica HR on their well-deserved ongoing expansion and success and praised them for their work with the BGU community:

“Whilst running their very successful business they always had time to encourage any of our students who were interested in or wanted to find out more about the world of Human Resources. Since their relocation, they have continued to offer this support. We’re thrilled that Amica HR are still actively engaging with BGU.”

If you have got a vision for your own business but aren’t sure where to begin then the BG Futures team are the perfect place to start. With facilities and expert support available in their incubation centre, they’ll be able to get you on the road to success. Visit our website or contact them today to see how you can start your own adventure.
