Big client wins for Aberdeen employee support firm

Business Gateway's expertise and advice helped P3 Business Care deliver their service to the corporate market.

20th November 2019

About the business

Launched in 2018 by Jim Grimmer, P3 Business Care takes a subversive approach to the traditional Employee Assistance Programme. On a weekly basis, Jim and his team proactively visit corporate businesses in order to identify and address potential issues prior to staff absence or staff turnover.

Additionally, P3 offers support to immediate family members, making it the only business within the UK addressing the needs of corporate businesses in this way.

Business Gateway’s advisers are experts in their respective fields and provided extremely valuable insight and discussion.

How Business Gateway has helped

Since seeking Business Gateway’s advice, P3 has enjoyed an impressive spike in business, piloting its first three-month scheme with an organisation of 60 staff across Aberdeen and Dundee in January this year. After the initial support period resulted in significant engagement with employees and immediate family, the company made the decision to continue with the support. Following this, P3 won contracts with a Glenrothes-based firm with 90 employees in February, and with a Cardiff business of 160 staff in April.

Jim Grimmer, founder of P3 Business Care, commented: “The Chartered Institute of Personnel Development has highlighted the need to take care of employees in a more ‘holistic’ manner, realising that issues going on outwith the workplace impact the employee at work and ultimately the business. This is the driving force behind what we do and, when sharing this with Business Gateway, the team could see our long-term vision.

“Its advisers are experts in their respective fields and provided extremely valuable insight and discussion. Their impartial advice and fresh perspective, along with access to a Scottish Enterprise By Design grant - which helped to develop our new web portal - was the final piece of the jigsaw that has seen P3 deliver a high-quality service to the corporate market. Our business is in a far better position thanks to this support.”
