Hi, I am Sam. I look after the HR side of the business. I have had 25 fun years of experience in Human Resources and business. I am a senior HR professional who has worked at HR Director level with extensive international experience and I have enjoyed every moment of it, working in different countries and emersing myself in the different cultures.
I have a proven track record of leading and developing HR teams and ensuring they are aligned with strategic organisation needs to deliver tangible benefits. I ‘get’ the fundamentals of HR and how it joins up with the rest of the organisation, HR never stands alone when I am involved!
I get told I am a respected leader and collaborator, with a flair for quickly identifying, clarifying and articulating organisation requirements. The reality is, I just really understand what the business is trying to achieve through an in-depth knowledge of the business and work out what needs to be done from a people perspective to make it happen. I fully understand the fundamentals of hr and I enjoy putting hr at the heart of the organisations business strategy. I am certainly not afraid to question.
The areas of hr which I have a particular strength are board level hr (UK and internationally), major international hr development and transformation, mergers and acquisitions, tupe, mediation, compensation & benefits, recruitment and team development.
I set up call hr because I could see that organisations that did not have an hr department, for whatever reason, were getting a standard, off the shelf hr service. I believe that every company is different, and the support they receive for their business and their people should be aligned to what they are trying to achieve. That is what we do at call hr.
We are different, we take our time to get to know your business, and the team and to really understand the history of your company and your aims and ambitions. This enables us to always deliver a service you need and one that makes a difference.
Outside of work, I am a keen runner, and can regularly be found running 10km, half marathon or marathons. When I am not running, I will be taking walks with my husband and not forgetting my golden retriever ‘Frodo’, or catching up on all the wonderful books I keep buying! When I can find time, I enjoy a trip to the theatre to enjoy musicals or a play.
