With a background in both recruitment and the education sector, Kelly is passionate about HR and the importance of implementing an effective HR strategy with the aim of achieving high morale in the workplace.

“Both employee wellbeing and staff morale have a huge impact on your bottom line. When staff morale is high, productivity improves, individuals perform better and there are fewer leave days.
