What makes People Pillar different to the rest?

I started People Pillar because I wanted to work with MDs who are looking to create a place that people want to work and that will enable people to perform at their best. In order to do this, I want to throw away the rule book and create an employee experience that is different to traditional HR practices, most of which are out of date in today's fast changing world.

I'm not going to come in and tell you how to run your business.  You know your people challenges but sometimes might need a little bit of help.

I will help you make tough decisions, not make you jump through lots of hoops and I will hold your hand throughout the process.

Saying ‘No you can’t do that’ is not how I like to work. I will work with you to find the best options for your business and I will get you where you want to be - the right way.
