Next up on our minutes with series is Becki Wilkinson, the newest member of our team, our HR Advisor. She's settled in so fast we don't remember when she joined, and she's definitely made for HR because she's SO approachable (poor her)!
What is your favourite thing about being an HR Advisor, especially agency side?
I love working with people and supporting them. Working within an agency (this one in particular) is great because everyone is very talented and motivated and no two days are ever the same…..
What has been the best project you've worked on so far in your HR life?
I worked on our ‘Employee Journey’ in my last role. We mapped out every touch point in an employee’s life with us (from potential applicant through to leaver) and identified where we would make an impression as an organisation. We then worked on all our literature and processes, ensuring everything reflected who we were and our brand/values. It was very interesting!
What would be a ‘what not to do’ as an HR Advisor?
Don’t judge or make decisions too quickly. You must be completely neutral and always look to understand both sides of a story.
Give me your top three tips on being the brilliant HR Advisor that you are
1) Be friendly and approachable
2) Look at how you can keep your team engaged and what makes them happy :)
3) Make sure your company reflects best practice and changes to legislation – keep up to date!
