Part One – Sue Rathmell
Part Two – Maria Wilson
I started my HR career in food retail in 1999 as a HR Manager and worked in both the public and private sectors in various senior HR roles, more recently as a HR Director in the care industry. I believe that in order to be a good HR practitioner, it’s fundamental to understand the operational challenges of the business in order to advise and guide managers and leaders in the most appropriate and effective way when dealing with people’s issues.
I am a great believer in doing the right thing. In situations where difficult decisions have to be made within a business, delivering the message and managing the situation in the right way, makes a huge difference between employees feeling valued by their employer or not.
Throughout my career, its clear that highly motivated and engaged employees are more likely to result in high performing and more profitable companies. I support clients to understand the “why” around low employee engagement and work collaboratively with clients to identify the problem and provide the solutions.
