Private sector business faces new people challenges every day. In recent years, they have had to contend with the introduction of Auto enrolment pensions and the National Living Wage as well as rafts of new employment legislation and in the immediate short term, Brexit will bring its own set of challenges.

Against this backdrop, the wheels of the day to day operations must stay on track, customer service must exceed expectations and the bean counters are holding everyone to account with greater financial analysis. Only those businesses who re-invent themselves, embrace technology and focus on their core offering will survive and HR must work with the senior leadership team to develop a strategy and solutions to meet the needs of the business.

Adrian’s extensive private sector experience means that he can offer HR support either by providing strategic input to the senior team or simply supporting the line management structure with pragmatic, commercially focused advice.
