You know what we do to support your business, but who are we? What does over 75 years of experience look like….we are not that old, honestly!
There are not many situations this team has not experienced. We have worked in many industries, with all sectors of HR work. The cases we have worked on could be written into a best selling book. However, we are the trusted team behind you and your continued success.
We offer our services to work along side your internal departments either meeting on site or away from your premises if required or appropriate.
We ensure you have a hands on approach to coach and guide you through our work to ensure all are developed for the future.
Go back to the 70’s and 80’s, my parents ran education centers for people with learning disabilities Their focus was to ensure that each individual were given the opportunity to shine. They ensured no one was labelled, and were treated with dignity – quite revolutionary in the 1970’s. Their approach inspired me with my career in Human Resources. I have focused my work within the legal framework but with compassion, understanding and equity. I have a passion for coaching all involved in our work with being the best version of themselves and shining in their own way. Although there can be times when I need to be a formidable opposition on a case, but always finding a way of engaging with people to deliver the best outcomes.
Outside of work, I am found in the garden or in my craft den, enjoying time with my partner, our children and grandchildren. We love our time away in our campervan, which really makes me smile.
