To be honest it started with a bunch of frustrations. Like many other people, we found ourselves constantly moaning about HR and its lack of impact, so we thought it only fair that we get off our bums and do something about it.
We are excited about the difference HR could make, but when you are working flat out in a busy HR role, you often don’t have the time or the energy to disrupt the old ways of doing things. We genuinely believe we have something new to offer HRDs and CEOs, not because we think we know more than they do, but because together we can achieve amazing things.
Finally, we like each other a lot and we laugh (a lot) – who wouldn’t want to start a business with someone you really enjoy being around?
