“Prior to starting my CIPD studies in 2003, I worked for more than 15 years in hospitality, including 10 years of experience running my own catering business, so I learned first-hand about people management (the hard way) as well as the challenges of running a small business. Since then I have clocked up 15+ years of HR experience so there is nothing you can surprise me with!
Having worked in HR roles in small, medium and very large organisations as well as leading a small team in my own business way before I studied people management; I can tell you that the challenges you will face as a business owner, director or manager are exactly the same regardless of the size of your organisation, the only difference is that larger organisations occasionally have more resources to rely upon.
When I worked in Hospitality, I learned the art of great customer service and how easily that can impact the bottom line, I also learned (as a manager) how important it was to understand your people, what motivates them as individuals? What do they enjoy about their job and how do they like to have fun? because when you know the answers to these questions, you are truly able to influence engagement; modern research shows us the clear link between employee engagement and business success.
EBHR Consulting Ltd was launched to allow me to continue working with small businesses, doing the work I love which is helping employers make the most of their greatest resource…their people”.
