With a background that combines a Masters in Organisational Psychology with nearly 20 years’ experience in HR and Training, Sam has a wealth of HR skills and knowledge to share and has been working with clients in a multitude of industry sectors and ranging in size from Start Ups to Blue Chip brands. Her pragmatic approach to dealing with employee matters has helped clients deal with everything from redundancy, disciplinary and grievance situations to equality audits and customer service protocol creation. Sam’s work has saved a number of businesses in excess of £10,000 by enabling them to avoid costly tribunal claims.
With an interest in supporting organisations committed to developing a culture of fair treatment, inclusion and respect for individuals, Sam offers a ‘joined up’ best practice strategic approach to helping clients manage their people. She gets excited about providing complete HR solutions that can be deployed in ‘real life’ – practically and simply. To this end she has developed the vivoHR People Plan
Sam says: Whatever I do in a company, my clients tell me that they feel like I am on their side, that my passion and energy are infectious and my determination to get the right outcome gives business owners the confidence to be a great employer!
