It’s always nice to receive any recognition and when this certificate landed on my desk, I felt very proud to have been involved with the CIPD for 20 years. It also made me reflect on my time in HR – from the time I took my first step into the world of HR at a major pharmaceutical company to today – running my own business. I would never have thought 20 years ago I would be a business owner – if you are passionate and dedicated enough – have the stamina and confidence and the backing of some great people its amazing what can be achieved so I would say to anyone – if you feel you can do it – take that step and go for it!
The business world has changed, and, like any profession, HR has gone through major transformation and we never stop or want to stop learning. We like to think at HR4B that we offer practical and professional input and support to our clients to ensure that all important balance between compliancy and best practice. Recognition from a professional body is great – but it means nothing without practical experience and an open-minded approach.
Thank you to the CIPD for the recognition but a big thank you also goes to the various clients that I work with every day here at HR4B.
