Mint HR: Outsourced Human Resources for Yorkshire
"Mint HR provide straight talking, easy to adopt advice and Tracy is always on hand - even when on holiday."
Neil Roberts - Managing Director
You set up a business because you're passionate about what you do. It's not just your passion, it's your skill set - and that's where your energy should be going. But as you've grown, all this other stuff has come into play: employing people. Managing them. Picking up the pieces when it doesn't go to plan.
All that takes your focus away from what you're really good at.
And this is where I come in. I work with business owners and people managers around Yorkshire to make sure that everything people related is run for the good of the business: to make you an employer of choice, to keep issues to a minimum. To make everything run smoothly.You may simply want to set up proper policies and procedures to ensure clarity and consistency or you might have a crisis brewing and have no idea how to handle it. Whatever your needs - help is just a phone call away.

It's probably a little contentious to go against the ingrained wisdom on this, but I thought I'd share my reasoning with you.

About Tracy Carpenter: HR Consultant
It might have been an odd dream, but even in my teenage years I knew I wanted to work in human resources. Having spent a decade working for big companies and dealing with the ponderous nature of the work there - every decision needing buy-in from dozens of people and sometimes taking years to reach resolution - I jumped ship to work in external HR consultancy.
During this time I came to love the variety of the challenges faced by small businesses, and see how much it was possible to help people thrive by helping them to solve their HR problems. Along the way I've met many colourful characters - and some of them have become long-term clients, who value my honesty and can-do attitude.
I'd be delighted to hear from you about any problem or opportunity you face. Give me a ring now on 07957 285 995, and let's get together for a chat about how I can help you.
