Start My HR Happiness


Kate Russell has helped us with training on Workplace Investigations and Return to Work Interviews. Kate was diligent in checking our needs before the training was delivered, and in checking our needs had been met after. The training itself was an engaging mix of expert knowledge and practical exercises, with plenty of group discussion. Kate was enthusiastic about the subject matter, and her extensive knowledge and experience was both interesting and hugely useful to the group. Feedback from our managers is that they have been able to apply the training directly in the workplace and it has greatly increased their confidence and skill in dealing with unplanned absence. Excellent training, and the in-house deliver made it very cost-effective.

HR for Accountants

We have provided HR support for a number of accounting firms since 2002.

  We took on Kate’s services several years ago, and since then Kate and her team at Russell HR Consulting have been invaluable in helping the business with our HR. Kate and her team are very good at providing ad-hoc advice to ensure that we are fully covered, and that we do not put our foot in it! There is always something extra Kate brings when considering HR that we had not considered, and we appreciate her matter of fact approach.

Having worked with accountants for so long, we understand your environment and the problems you face. It means the HR advice we give is tailored to your profession. From advising on employees who make the trainees cry, to dealing with trainees who make the Practice Manager tear his or her hair, accountants who have falsified client signatures, and simple poor work performance, we've seen and advised on it all!

If any of your team are not meeting your reasonable workplace standards nearly all the time, you’re losing money.

Our retained HR service gives our clients a fixed fee plan which means you get HR support from people who know how to get their teeth in your business, and give proactive and robust advice. The contents of each retained service are tailored to meet the individual organisation’s needs.
