Personal Business Support in Cumbria

Insight, Feedback & Solutions 

Established by Samantha Gargett, Elton Business support offers, insights, mystery shopping and business support to small, medium and large businesses across the UK.

There are two main strands to our business – our mystery shopper and audit service where we can help organisations to identify their strengths and weaknesses; and our consultancy and training services, where we work with businesses to improve their procedures and staff competencies – the two go hand in hand. Our business model is based on providing insight, feedback and practical solutions, working alongside our clients in a nurturing role in order to get the best results. We give an unbiased look into a business and provide clear and jargon free feedback that can be used to help a company improve. 

We offer mystery shopping to give insight from a customer perspective, but we can also work from inside the business with employees, gaining vital insight from them too. Who knows more about the day to day running of your business than those that run it day to day on your behalf? Team members will often open up more honestly to an independent consultant and we can give a more effective insight than a generic staff survey. Once we’ve collected the data we can then continue to work with a business to help implement policies and procedures or work with their teams to help get the best out of them.
