It is a mantra that she says has held her in very good stead throughout her career because, when an organisation is facing challenges and difficult decisions have to be made, it helps leaders to know they have an HR counterpart that shares their vision and has a good grasp of the issues at play so that they can advise them properly with both the interests of the business and the employees in mind.
