At Stress Free HR, we are a team of dedicated professionals who provide a bespoke service. We don’t lecture you about what you should and shouldn’t be doing at you company, and we don’t tell you what you want to hear. Instead, our aim is to provide you with commercially focused HR solutions, so that you can make informed decisions about what is best for your company. Furthermore, we always aim to be honest, and that includes informing you about any costs that may be incurred.
As part of our bespoke service, we discuss the needs of your business as well as what your business ambitions are, and what your culture and values are. Then, once we have established what your aims are, and what is important to you, we adapt our service, advice and recommendations around the information you have provided us. It’s a personal service with bespoke commercial solutions, you can expect honesty and transparency with each conversation!
Providing you a convenient service is of paramount importance to us, and to achieve this, we listen to your request. When you want us to be involved, we’ll be there to help, but when you want us to take a step back and assist from afar, that is fine too. Remember, a one size fits all approach is not our style!
Here’s a short statement from our director, Anabela Yourell:
“My HR journey started in 2001 when I quit my computer science degree at King College, London. It really wasn't the subject for me... From there I started on a one year maternity cover as an HR administrator in an insurance brokers not really knowing what HR was all about. I then moved to do contracting work so I could get to grips with what HR meant for different organisations. For the following four years, I worked at the British Transport Police™, a stockbroker’s, a school, and a London Council. Within each one, HR was very different with varying levels of support, budget and appreciation for the department. In 2003, I started a part-time Postgraduate Diploma in Human Resource Management qualifying in 2005. In 2006, I started working as an HR Manager for Club La Costa, a 25-year-old timeshare company who had no HR department and relied on an outsourced HR Company to manage its HR practices. In 2010, I joined Just Eat™ in its infancy, an online takeaway company who at the time were only 50 employees strong and not very well known. By the time I left in 2015, I had helped them grow to 1500 employees internationally, supported it through its IPO in 2014 and its HR department had gone from a one-woman band, to a team of 10! I then had a break to have two beautiful children and relocated to the Midlands to escape childcare fees in London. I decided to set up Stress Free HR Ltd to facilitate my work life balance, and in doing so, I hope to help SME's in the UK make commercial and informed decisions about their HR requirements and ultimately help them stop wasting money on preventable mistakes so they can spend it benefiting their business instead!”
