Anderson – Associate Consultant
Karen’s generalist HR experience has been
gained in several industries such as logistics, finance, food and
beverage and retail. It was during interim HR management roles that
Karen really found her specialist area of Employee Relations, in
particular the need for HR to provide more commercially focused
and pragmatic solutions to their people issues. In addition to working
as an associate consultant for Diversity Dynamics, Karen runs her
own successful consultancy providing a simple, straight-forward
HR service to small and medium size client organisations who may
not have either the need or resources to have a dedicated internal
HR department. Karen’s specialist yet pragmatic support enables
organisations to avoid potential pitfalls in people management,
to proactively resolve employee relations issues and to find the
most positive outcome for both employee and employer.
Karen’s formal CIPD qualifications were gained
at Thames Valley University in West London. Originally from Northern
Ireland, she has experience of both living and working in Brussels,
London and is now based in Central Scotland. With a young family
she has successfully combined her business with her family life,
and has many personal pursuits which include being a keen golfer
and gardener. She is also a fully qualified Classical Reflexologist.

Quote from participant, 2005
