Start (-up)
...as you mean to go on

Does your company need HR?

Yes.
Starting your business with the right HR in place can put you on the right track and help avoid expensive problems - you may be finding that too much of your time is being spent worrying about HR issues.


But you probably don’t need a full time HR manager. Instead…
You can pick up the phone and get professional support from me when you need it.

Why?
Because having an HR expert on-call helps you: recruit the right team, coach your staff, provide expert advice (for instance advising on contracts) and resolve tricky problems.

It reduces your stress levels, improves productivity, wellbeing and motivation and ultimately has a positive impact on getting your product to market.

And it’s not just for start-ups… if your business is already up and running, I can help you too.

I hired Cathryn to help me build a high performance team, iterating until we got the team that the company needed to scale. Cathryn is an independent thinker, she offered invaluable perspectives and constant reliable support through the transition of the new hires into team members

Cathryn understands enterprising people because she is one herself. I’ve valued her contribution, in particular her integrity in balancing the interests of the employee and the company…

Cathryn quickly assesses where she can add value to a business and helps the people in it grow. From coaching the CEO and senior team to delivering workshops, her experience, energy and enthusiasm for people and business is infectious.

Cathryn helped us understand why some situations are stressful and how best to approach them. It was a pleasure to work with her.
