Expansion plans for HR Savvy

Hot on the heels of a recent rebrand, Preston based business advisors HR Savvy, formerly known as Sarah Booth HR, is going from strength to strength.

HR Savvy has recently added to its team with the appointment of 24-year-old Charlotte Winder from Clitheroe, who joined the company as trainee HR advisor.  Charlotte was brought in to develop clients within the Ribble Valley and East Lancashire areas, and is the start of an expansion plan which will see the company grow organically throughout 2017, as well as recruit an additional member of staff.

An English Language and Sociolinguistics graduate, Charlotte had previously worked in customer service focused roles and had always wanted to work in HR. When the position at HR Savvy became available, Charlotte jumped at the chance to utilise both her writing and communication skills.

“HR combines my interest in people psychology, along with my enthusiasm for systems and data, so it’s the ideal career choice for me,” says Charlotte. “When businesses take on a HR advisor, they want someone who is approachable, straight talking and able to give practical advice on the options available to them. As part of my role I’m developing a new HR system to enable our clients to manage HR admin more effectively. Working as a HR generalist allows means I get involved with a range of services from HR software implementations to interviewing employees and witnesses in sensitive cases such as grievances or disciplinarys, so the job is very varied and very rewarding.”

HR Savvy provides a range of HR services for small to medium sized employers and includes handling bullying cases, carrying out investigations and dismissals, to employee contracts and sickness absence management. Its clients are predominately within the social enterprise, charity or private sectors and the company acts as a HR function for businesses that don’t have an in-house HR facility, or works closely with HR departments, assisting on specific projects.

In addition to her day work, Charlotte is also studying towards her CIPD Level 5 Diploma in Human Resources at Blackburn College.

Owner of HR Savvy, Tracey Murphy added: “This is an exciting time for the business. We have had some brilliant feedback on our new name and now we are very much looking forward to building on our success in Preston and expanding the business into new avenues.”
