about me

I’m Kathy Chillistone and my home is the Isle of Wight. After a long stint in commerce with long hours and sporadic commutes, I made a healthy change to improve my work/life integration.

I’m a qualified and insured Independent HR Consultant.  I help small businesses and SMEs across England, covering the full HR arena, albeit my passion is engagement, and driving social change in mental health. With experience across many sectors I’m able to respond to my Client’s environment with ease.

HR is not corrective measures or knowing employment laws or the employee handbook by heart. HR is not organising staff BBQ’s and writing thank you cards. HR is not paperwork or payroll.

HR strengthens the impact every decision has on people. Coaching and empowering leaders to put people at the centre. 

Providing the best tools and programs, to engage employees from hire, to retirement. HR facilitates development opportunities, so people become the BEST version of themselves. HR help companies create an environment in which employees can thrive and be safe, physically and mentally. 

HR puts engagement as a priority and leads on culture. HR is a trusted Business Partner and fuels the best commercial results.
