Katie is passionate for instilling the idea that ‘Human Resource’ departments are not left on the peripheral and are instead ‘People Service Centres’ which are profitable and add value, delivering a return on investment for an organisation’s biggest assets – their people! An advocate of a healthy work life balance, Katie promotes this throughout the Group as well as living by this ethos herself.
Outside of work Katie spends most of her time on nature expeditions directed by her 4-year-old splashing in streams and mucky puddles while looking for fallen leaves and creepy crawlies.
