Kelly Marsden

With a background in both recruitment and the education sector, Kelly is passionate about the positive impact an outsourced HR function can create within SME’s. Working closely with her clients to help them implement an effective HR Strategy; creating a coherent framework for employees to be hired, managed and developed to support an organisation’s long-term goals.

“Both employee wellbeing and staff morale have a huge impact on your bottom line. When staff feel supported by their employer, morale is higher, productivity improves, individuals perform better and there are fewer leave days. At The HR Team, we help create a workplace culture where your teams feel valued. We ensure the various aspects of people management work together seemlessly to drive the behaviour and climate needed to meet performance targets and achieve your overall business goals.”
