People investment has three areas of focus - Talent and Organisation Development, HR Business Partnering and Services, Corporate Responsibility and Engagement enabling our people to connect, contribute, develop and progress.
I have 25 years’ experience in developing, aligning and implementing people strategy and delivering change and improvement within professional services businesses. In DWF our aim is for people strategy to go beyond words and to be visible in how we lead and operate as a business and serve our clients. This requires a drive and openness to excellence and new ideas outside our sector and a commitment to continuously improving our services. DWF’s people strategy is aligned to the firm's business strategy, championed by the People investment team but owned and driven by our Partners and our People.
I am an advocate and practitioner of the Business Partner Model, for organising and delivering HR and development services. DWF’s People Investment offering prioritises understanding our people’s strengths, creating opportunities to develop and succeed, and providing a great place to work. We aim to build strong working relationships, operating collaboratively to deliver success.
The team has attracted high quality professionals motivated to make a difference and who are passionate about harnessing the potential of our people. The team has been recognised this year with a range of national and regional Recruitment, Management Excellence, Learning and Development and Community Engagement awards.
