HR & Wellbeing Officer UK

What do you do at W.Howard?  I help and assist our UK employees and managers with any issues or concerns they may have. I also support the delivery of HR and related strategies, which includes recruitment, retention, learning and development and health and wellbeing.


When did you join W.Howard? November 2014


What do you most enjoy about working at W.Howard? Working for a company that is progressive and caring, makes everyday rewarding. The people, all of the teams at each site gives me a purpose. If I’ve been able to improve the life of just one person with the support of the company, then we have achieved something positive. Plus every day is different for me, so my day is always interesting.


What is your Favourite Product? Our real wood veneers, especially the Single V-Groove as it is so modern


What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything.  Also smile and the world will smile with you.


What most recently made you smile?  Seeing both of my children succeed and become people that I am extremely proud of, knowing that me and Kevin have done everything we can to help them. Plus cuddles with my dogs, you can’t beat a staffy cuddle!


Favourite Place:  Anywhere with family and friends, making memories to last a lifetime!


What was your first job?  It was a Saturday job selling school uniform and menswear, in Boardman’s in Leigh town centre. Mr Boardman was part of my first experience of work, and he made sure I knew what a good employer was!
