About Kath

I live in Leamington Spa, with my husband Mike, and twin 9-year-old girls Merryn & Issey.

I am a fully qualified Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development with over 25 years HR experience up to and including HR Director level.

The industries I have worked in include hospitality, retail, financial services, education (private & state), estate agency and chartered surveyors.  I have also held roles that were responsible across multiple countries and involved extensive travel.

I left the corporate world to start KClear HR to enable me to spend more time with and support my family with their own interests, whilst channelling my energy, skills and experience to help businesses support and develop their people to enable them to grow and thrive.

I strongly believe that every individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and the majority of individuals don’t come to work to do a poor job.  I try to find the route cause for why they are performing poorly or have become a square peg in a round hole, so they fully understand business decisions, and why they don’t fit with the business’ values.  There are always some individuals for which this doesn’t apply, however, I believe it should be the starting point for discussions.

I will ensure you have the right tools in place to ensure you have the right people in the right seats, and that your values are aligned.  I can provide you will employment contracts, employee handbooks and policies so that your employees know how you want your business to operate, and essentially what the ‘rules of the game’ are for your business.

I partner with an HR system provider especially aimed at the SME market which can significantly reduce the burden of HR and/or office management administration.  It can be used for requesting and logging holidays, recording sickness (enabling you to monitor trends and take prompt action), holding all your HR-related documentation (including your policies), claiming expenses, recruitment applicant tracking and holding all personal information.  The system is web-based so can be accessed whether you are in the office or away from your desk, and is super user friendly.

I have public liability and professional indemnity insurance.
