Zoe Wilson

Hi, I’m Zoe and I founded ReThink HR in 2017. I became an HR professional back in 2003 and have extensive experience of working both in-house and delivering HR consultancy services. I have a passion for people and technology which is reflected in the services that we provide. I have a combination of HR and system expertise, and my experience of running a small business helps to ensure that our clients receive business focused solutions with an understanding of the commercial pressures that we all face.

I could have chosen to specialise in either HR systems (HRIS) or employee relations, however remaining a generalist seems to give me the best of both worlds. To me, this can also be an advantage to you, as I have a working knowledge of the latest HR trends, practices and employment law to bring to your HRIS projects, and I have knowledge of the latest technology to inform how to deliver HR practices efficiently.

My weeks are usually a mix of projects, strategic advice and hands-on HR support as well as running the business. I thrive on building relationships and solving problems. I’m lucky to work with a wide range of sectors, from Creative and Media; Professional Services and Engineering; to the Arts, Not for Profit and Charities. I enjoy using my experience and knowledge to help companies to get the best from their people and to help gain competitive advantage through their people strategy.

I work onsite and remotely, depending on the services that you need. Whilst I’m based in Essex, I’ve delivered projects as far as Yorkshire and East Sussex and enjoy the travel.

Our team is amazing and I’m very proud of the level of trust and respect we’ve built with our clients.  Whether you need a one-off piece of advice, an ongoing retainer or a specific project delivered, we value every client and the relationships we build with them.

Outside of work, I am a huge live music fan; I don’t need an excuse to put my dancing shoes on; I am also a regular scuba diver with a huge passion for travel, food and wine. 

Philippa

Hi, I’m Philippa.  I’ve been working with Zoe on and off (alongside two periods of maternity leave) since 2013 and was really pleased to be able to join Rethink HR in April 2018 as a Director and Zoe’s business partner. Like Zoe, my working week is varied and I love the wide-ranging remit of the work we do with our clients – one day I’m planning an HR systems project and the next I’m helping to tackle a tricky employee and making the client company run more smoothly.

The best bit about my job is having the opportunity to apply my knowledge, experience and creativity to give my clients great solutions.  I’m proud of the fact that my focus is always getting the right balance between commerciality and ensuring a positive experience for all involved.  We can’t always make the situation better, for example in the case of redundancy, but by having clear process and high standards of communication we can help it to go smoothly and make it as least stressful as possible.

During my career I’ve been fortunate to work in a range of industries from financial services to engineering via food production and independent education.  I’m fascinated with getting to know more about a business, whether we’ve worked together for years or it’s the first time I’m helping them, and my clients benefit from my holistic approach to understanding their priorities.

I pride myself on having very high standards and exacting attention to detail – there’s a reason why I am the one who does the proof-reading for the team!  My clients benefit from my diligence and continuous desire to be learning and improving.

When I’m working on projects, I establish great communication with the key stakeholders from the off and keep the focus on the end results, navigating and resolving any issues which arise along the way.  I am outcome-driven and like nothing more than getting a job done well and allowing everyone to move on to the next challenge in their busy working lives.  I find that, although the approach may vary, all businesses are looking for clear guidance about how to navigate the world and am pleased when I get feedback to confirm they have got that from me.

We are building a great team and know that we all work with similar goals to provide the best support and experience for our clients – our testimonials speak for themselves. 

If you would like to get a fresh view on an issue or chat about how we would approach your next HR tech project, please don’t hesitate to get in touch – we are HR geeks (and proud of it) and would be thrilled to see if we can help.

Outside of work my top 3 priorities in life are family, food, exercise – in that order!  

Abbey

Hi, I’m Abbey and I joined the ReThink HR team in 2019, having gained over 12 years’ experience as a consultant specialising in project management and systems implementation. 

 I have been fortunate to fall into a line of work that matches my love for a varied working style, chance to manage multiple projects on the gowork with teams from various areas of the business plus the opportunitto do this within various sectors.

Having previously worked in training, I developed a key skill for solving technical issues and finding great solutions that works well for all parties involved very quickly. This helps in a project environment with so many moving parts.  

My daily tasks as a project manager involves bringing different teams together, keeping plans ontrack, driving momentum and being the intermediary between the technical team, HR team, operations, external vendors etc. 

I am usually really hands-on in every project and have a track record of staying calm whilst under pressure with an infectious can do attitude (not the annoying type). I work onsite and remotely on most of my projects which gives great flexibility for both parties. I proud myself in having a breadth and depth of experience needed to quickly understand business requirements and enjoy helping craft the most suitable solutions that will help a business move forward to achieve their goals. 

Our team is an amazing one and with our varied experience are a small but mighty addition to any project. We lean on each other for ideas, innovation and support on all our projects. 

One of my other key projects outside of work is being the project manager for Lagos Fashion Week which I have been involved with for the last 10years. It gives me a chance to indulge in my love for fashion. 

I also love cooking, spending time with family to unwind.
