I’m Katherine Connolly and I’m on a HR mission. I simply don’t believe that HR has to be complicated, scary and full of jargon that every small business owner struggles to understand. Together with Jason, we set up Keeping HR Simple which is both our company name and our mission statement.
All too often we see employers who believe that employment law is weighted in favour of their employees. Funnily enough, the employees think the opposite! So, who’s right? If the correct approach to HR and employment law is taken, the answer is neither of them. It’s entirely down the middle. We are passionate about helping businesses to get policies and procedures in place which protect them and their employees.
I'm an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development (CIPD) and my particular area of interest and experience is in recruitment – I love helping businesses to get the very best person for the job! I also think that businesses should put time and effort into describing the job properly so everyone knows what is expected of them. Check out my blog or come and tweet with me on Twitter!
We are as passionate and enthusiastic about moving your business forward as we are about moving our own. We are dedicated to providing you with HR knowledge and expertise tailored to your business, helping you move it from a position of vulnerability to a position of security in the litigious world we now live in. Having over 22 years experience working for myself, for other companies, being a manager and being managed, working in both domestic and international markets, as a team or on my own I have witnessed and experienced many management styles and theories. And in my humble opinion the simplest worked the best! So not only is Keeping HR Simple our name but it is our business philosophy as well.
We will provide with clear and concise thinking about HR to empower your business. Whether you are concerned about recruitment, making redundancies or you want to get the best performance from your staff, we will work with you as if your business was ours and support you and your business.
