HR Think – HR consultancy and Talent Development

HR Consultancy

At HR Think, we are passionate about helping businesses make their companies better places to work. This not only leads to increased employee engagement, but also increased performance which makes sound business sense.

Specifically targeted at small and rapidly growing businesses who often feel they don’t have the time to ensure their HR procedures are robust, we advise clients of all sectors on a huge range of people challenges.

With broad, real-world knowledge, we bring an unrivalled versatility of knowledge to find the right long-term solution for any organisational challenge. 

  • Do you operate without your own dedicated HR resource?
  • Are you a start up business with ambitious plans to grow and develop?
  • Are you a business owner, leader, or HR professional who could benefit from some sage HR advice?

Let us think about your Human Resources either on an ad hoc, interim or retained basis. Because let’s be realistic, whilst you know your people are important, we know there are often other more pressing, urgent matters.  Like your budget presentation. Your sales pipeline.  Your next acquisition.  The client project you’re delivering.  The HR strategy you are delivering to the business.

We won’t put you in a spin with text book HR ‘best practice’; nor bamboozle you with Employment Law or an unrealistic HR Strategy. Whilst developing HR policies and procedures and observing Employment Legislation is of course important, we believe being able to work creatively to find solutions is of even greater and longer lasting value to the success of your business.

We’ll simply work with you to identify where your business is going and what you want to achieve.   We’ll help you figure out your vision for your people and how to achieve it.   We’ll give you straight forward, commercial, practical HR advice that adds value to your business and improves employee engagement and well being – all of which has potential to impact on your bottom line.

Talent Development

At HR Think, we believe that everyone has the potential to be the very best they can be if they find their true purpose at work and in their career.  We create the space and opportunity for Executives and Leaders to think about their purpose and goals; how to achieve their goals faster, and develop their performance.  

  • If you are a leader, could you and your team benefit from coaching to help you achieve your business goals and develop personally and professionally?
  • Do you have someone in your team who could benefit from a personalised coaching programme?
  • Are you an individual looking to develop your career or perhaps you’ve come to a career cross roads?

In today’s turbulent and complex world, we are looking for leaders we can trust.  Making sense of who we are, and our purpose, is ever more important if we want to be authentic business leaders.  That’s why at HR Think, we are passionate about working with Executives, Managers, Teams and Individuals in a pragmatic way to help them identify and achieve their business and personal goals, and to help them unlock potential both at an individual and organisational level.

As part of our coaching methodology we work Lumina Spark, Lumina Learning’s flagship trait based psychometric tool, to produce individual and team ‘portraits’.  These portraits help individuals and teams unlock multiple business benefits and discover how to enhance their performance, well being and working relationships with others.
