As its founder, I think it is helpful to know that my HR career has spanned more than 20 years.
I have also had the pleasure of working for many industry sectors in a number of team or stand alone roles. I have partnered business leaders and other senior functional leaders.
Finally, I have delivered on many projects ,initiatives, workshops, training programmes and organisational change.
I set up my consultancy after taking a break to support and be closer to my family.
I chose the company name because I use the phrase all of the time - if you get that balance of business need, employee need and the structure that sits behind it all aligned - things work well.
Choosing the image of the delicate leaf and water drop hopefully sums up that perfect balance!
I really enjoy meeting new people and am very solution driven. There is always an answer out there, we just have to find it!
I like to work with people who understand the importance of how human resource services can help their business.
The relationship is key as I really want to get to know you and your business and help in the most effective way I can.
I am also a firm believer that most solutions can be delivered as positively as possible and that reviewing and supporting the strategic wellbeing of employees hugely helps output and engagement.
Here are a few quotes;

"Thanks to Katie for all her gentle, positive guidance to update and enhance all our small business HR documentation. She has swiftly become an essential part of our business.
We have become more productive, improved employee engagement and overall streamlining of processes. Always a work in progress.

I really enjoy helping businesses succeed. At the moment, things are really complex so, if I can help at all, I will.
Please do get in touch, there is no harm in an initial free conversation and we can then take it from there.
