Why work with me?

Quality

My aim is to build long term and meaningful relationships with my clients. I’m passionate about helping clients achieve their business goals through sound and timely HR advice and support.

Integrity

No two businesses are the same and by working in close partnership with clients, I can offer innovative and creative solutions that fit business needs and support your management team

Focus

Keeping a clear and independent focus allows me to manage workplace conflicts and training needs, so you have the freedom to run your business.

Cost Effectiveness

Outsourcing your HR advice and support to me will offer a cost effective way to increase the efficiency, skills and productivity of your workforce and management team.

Passionate

I believe in the power of positive, productive teams. I’m here to help you make the most of your people. People are a business’s biggest asset (and cost).  Managed well, your business will benefit from increased profits and more satisfied clients. I’ll help you recruit, retain and train the best people for your business.

At Hand in a Crisis

I understand the strain that difficult employees, sickness, lateness and poor performance and attitude can put on your business. I offer sympathetic, expert, commercial advice and if times get tough, I’ll support you through Disciplinary, Grievance, Redundancies or Tribunals.

Saving you Time & Stress

I’ll sort out your contracts and employee handbooks and, once you’re up to speed, I’ll help you manage holidays, sickness, training and more. Leaving you more time to concentrate on your business.

“Karen led a detailed review of one of our critical HR processes, and the subsequent implementation of her recommendations. She worked brilliantly across the stakeholders, carefully breaking down unnecessary barriers, resulting in a marked improvement in our delivery to the business.”

Izabel Carter – ex Human Resources Director, Cobham

“Karen is efficient, effective and an absolute pleasure to work with. Her vast amount of Employee Relations experience means she would be my ‘go to’ HR professional. When dealing with disciplinary and grievance hearings Karen always ensures a fair hearing for all whilst maintaining a good grasp of how to conduct difficult conversations. Redundancy consultations are handled efficiently, fairly and sensitively. Combining all this with a ninja like ability to recruit even the hardest to find candidates means I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.”

Jo White – ex Managing Director, Five by Five
