Paula has been working with SME’s for over 20 years. She brings a commercial approach to HR, recognising that HR is an integral part of running a business. Her view is that HR should ensure that an organisation has flexibility and protection and should help (not hinder) an organisation in helping them achieve their business objectives and move their business forward. Paula is also a published author and her book ‘HR for SME’s – a practical guide’, is a culmination of her many years working for SME’s; providing practical and commercial HR support.
