The Learning Curve Podcast - THE
Podcast for Women Entrepreneurs in the Middle East.
Meet Claire Donnelly, a solid HR Consultant with over 30 years experience in the profession. In her words, there isn't a HR problem she hasn't seen. She is the Co-founder of MHC Consulting who's mission is to give business owner back their freedom and allow them to grow their team and business in a sustainable, manageable and more enjoyable way.
Claire is first and foremost a solution provider. MHC Consulting aim to go into a business, help discover the root causes of key problems the business owner maybe suffering and help solve them. They help business owners recognise when they are stuck and spending too much time working in the business as opposed to 'on' the business. A crucial difference.
Claire takes on the role of an outsourced HR Director for many business owners. On behalf on a client she will get involved in the HR operations of a business and help the business owner make the right decision so that all HR decisions are cost efficient to the business and have a positive effect on the health of the business. As she says in the episode HR does affect a company's Profit and Loss Accounts.
Hiring Millennials is also discussed and she gives us some insightful advise on what they are looking for and what a businesses approach and style should be to help employ and retain millennials employees.
Claire was very open and insightful into the world of HR and how professionals like her do need be part of the corporate decision making because at the end of the day people run your business and the right people will help you grow and build your business.
In this episode Claire shares how she got started in HR and what her career has taught her. She shares how she can help and support SME's and large corporations today. She offers up some great tips and ideas too that we should all be thinking about when it comes to managing your team as well as your business.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Claire's journey and discovering the nuggets of knowledge she has in her head. She's a smart and talented women and would be a great asset to company looking to get advise and direction on their business and HR strategy.
