Why I Love What I Do
I love helping people and seeing my expertise making a positive difference in a business.
I got into HR way back in 2001 because I wanted to help adults in the workplace do their roles to the best of their ability and have a great time at work. My career has led me to work in all areas of HR including Recruitment, Payroll, Pensions, Reporting, Change Management to dealing with difficult employees and resolving conflict.
I started my HR Consultancy when friends who had small businesses of their own needed my support when they wanted to sound me out on ideas for their business. During the pandemic I used the opportunity to grow my business, and continue to grow it based on the model of being a trusted Advisor to business owners who want what's best for their people.
I still have that desire today - to make workplaces better and for business owners to know that they are not only legally compliant, I've also saved them time, money and stress by helping them to make the changes that they need to in their business.
I take a commercial, pragmatic but also a human approach to dealing with people so you can get the best you can out of them, even in difficult situations.
A member of my HR Team said to me "you always do the right thing". And that's something I still benchmark myself against today. Whilst I will make sure that everything stays legal, I am also not one for red tape, so I will make sure things move for you as efficiently as possible.
