So many articles have been written about the best ways to engage a team we thought that we would turn it on its head to highlight just what it takes to get a team to engage. When the points are written from a negative perspective it can really show just how not to do things as an employer! 1. Know nothing about your team Sounds straightforward, and it is! Don’t spend any time with your employees, know nothing about their personal life, background, personal goals or anything that enables you to develop a good work relationship with them. This is an easy way to make your employee feel like their... Read More

The terms coaching and mentoring are often used interchangeably and frequently get confused. In our article we explore the differences between the two and the ways both can help organisations achieve goals, allowing employees to increase their confidence and make their own decisions. It is very important to be clear about the individual’s learning objective to be able to choose the right approach. The use of either approach does however require ground rules such as confidentiality and a clear plan of how success will be measured.

When I decided to set-up as an independent consultant in the early spring of 2009, I had no idea that my vision would become the successful, thriving business that it is today. By the Summer of 2010 the consultancy was registered as a Limited company and I wrote my first 5 year business plan – setting out a vision of what I wanted to achieve.

Interesting in hearing more about working for You HR? Here is a snapshot into the working life of one of our part-time employees, Matt: I have been working at You HR for nearly a year now and it has made me feel more confident workwise, and in talking to people. My day begins at 10.00 at You HR on Wednesdays and Thursday. Once I have looked at the jobs list I like to crack on with it. When I need a break I have a drink and have a look at what treats are available. I like the treats there are often Haribos or chocolate. I then get back to... Read More

My first day of work experience was a very nerve racking one as I really didn’t know what to expect as it was my first time doing anything like this. As I walked up the road to the main office I felt more confident as I thought how bad can it really be. Pushing open the door a rush of excitement came over me as it all seemed real at last. The staff made me feel welcome keeping me occupied by asking me all sorts of questions and giving me a brief of the next two weeks, I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders when the other work experience...

Starting work in the big city at the young age of 15, by the time Jonna was 22, she was recognised nationally as the youngest corporate manager in Royal Mail, a very male dominated industry. Employed as a project consultant at the time, Jonna was given a new career opportunity to become a Human Resources (HR) professional when others realised her passion and potential to create commercial people solutions.

My Black History Month Hero is Barack Obama due to my admiration of his leadership during his presidency. I truly believe that everybody has a responsibility to lead by example and understand that it’s not about one single person being accountable for all change but it is about one person inspiring and leading to achieve. We need to internalise this idea of excellence. Not many folks spend a lot of time trying to be excellent. On November 4, 2008, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois was elected president of the United States over Senator John McCain of Arizona. Obama became the 44th president, and the first African American to be elected to that... Read More
