We really like people, we love the complexity of employment law and we are fabulous at finding solutions.
We believe positive, pro-active HR results in:
Less energy wasted on conflict and conflict resolution
A better customer image – if your employees are smiling, so are your customers!
Keeping your business away from costly, time-consuming tribunals and protecting your reputation
Less time wasted by employees and management
Attracting the best people and supporting collaborative improvement
Easier recruitment and improved employee retention
Between us, there’s probably not much we haven’t come across in the world of HR, from the simple to the complex, to the absolutely outrageous – there’s no challenge too big (or too small) and we pride ourselves on giving you practical advice and solutions that work with the challenges of your business.
We have an APPETITE for HR. This is our ethos and what we believe HR should be:
Active Practical Personal Equal Transparent Integral Truthful Engaged
So, who are we…
Hi there, I’m Lisa, proud to be at the helm of CUBE and our unique offering. I’ve worked in HR for over 15 years and I really enjoy what I do. The only thing I love more than HR is my family. I’m a mum to a 5-year old daughter and a 7-year-old furry 4-legged woofer. I like to have fun at work and outside of work and that’s another reason our clients love us. No boring HR service here.
I love employment law but make it easy for our clients to understand what I’m talking about, I’m a typical straight-talking northern lass. I’ve worked in many business sectors and I bet there is nothing you can throw at me that I haven’t dealt with before.
I’m a Chartered Member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and have a Masters in Human Resource Management. I’ve also gone back to uni and I’m currently studying an MBA.
We take great pride in working with our clients to ensure they are not only compliant with employment legislation, but to also make them best in class. That’s why lots of our clients are award winning businesses.
Hi, I’m Claire, Lisa’s right hand lady. I’ve been part of the CUBE family since May 2019 and I honestly can’t think of anything else I’d rather be doing! Aside from my passion for HR, my world revolves around my family, friends and my Staffie, Phil. I play netball twice a week (mainly for the laugh, rather than the exercise!) and have loved everything horse related since I was a kid.
I live my life by the value that kindness costs nothing, life can be challenging so why make it harder by being mean to others. My burning desire is to buy old buildings and renovate them to provide accommodation for homeless people.
I love people – understanding what makes them tick and how to effectively communicate, so much so that I started a degree in Forensic Psychology. I have a very active brain that loves solving even the most seemingly complex problems – and believe me CUBE have seen some very strange and complex problems! I’m also currently studying for my CIPD Level 5.
I’ve also been told by my clients that I’m the nicest HR person they’ve ever met – a dubious accolade but one I’ll take none-the-less!
Hi, I’m Howard and I believe that business success is dependent on the quality of the people it employs. That’s why HR is the most critical factor for achieving that success and why I love it so much!
Sure, there are lots of laws to understand, and techniques and processes in managing people but after 30 years in HR I consider that to be my job, not the clients. I give clients advice that they can understand because I know that HR is not their sole concern.
I was born, educated and became fully qualified in the north, so I guess you could call me a northerner – in my case that means plain speaking but entirely approachable. However, due to circumstances my family and I moved south. This has been a significant transition for me but after nearly a decade I have nearly got used to a round in the pub costing the same as my first house!
A famous child psychologist once said that a child’s personality doesn’t typically change much after the age of 7 and so my interests then of music and football still hold good for today. Recently I have started working with a local charity in getting the long-term unemployed back into work and that has been brilliant.
