I'm Helen Stocker, and I have made the move to Consultancy after over 20 years in Human Resources, working across a range of industries including retail, distribution and financial services. I have worked in organisations with as few as 100 employees to those with over 20,000.
My approach to HR is pragmatic and solutions focused. I am known for my ability to get things done, whilst also providing the support and challenge that business leaders need from their HR partner.
Personally, my time is mostly spent with my family, friends and of course my Boxer dog Desi! Having three children spanning a decade, you can imagine I am kept on my toes!
Our main loves are walking, food and holidays, and we try to get away as often as possible. Here are some pictures from a recent trip to New York.
My vision is simple …. to be the HR Partner of choice for SME organisations.
Delivering strong, pragmatic HR advice and solutions, balanced with creative ideas that enable SMEs to power through their people and organisation challenges, to succeed now and build for the future.
Through a simple set of values …..
Challenge – I am your Critical Friend, here to support you, but sometimes the best support is to challenge current practices and thinking.
Balance – I achieve the best solutions for you as the employer, but also with the employee’s interests at heart – that is how I help achieve win-win situations.
Honesty – This is just how I am, straightforward and open …. I find it works!
Passion – I love what I do, and have a genuine desire to make workplaces better!
