How we work
Hood People Solutions is happy to work on a project by project basis or be retained as ongoing partner in your HR delivery. We know smaller organizations have limited budgets for HR and people management. We are happy to work flexibly with SMEs, either on a retained basis to provide an outsourced HR service or on a project by project basis. Either way, we will bring our strategic and capabilities-based approach, ensuring that your people management capabilities are strengthened.
Hood People Solutions is an HR and people management consultancy founded by Mike Hood who has over 20 years’ experience as an HR Director in the UK and internationally. All work will be carried out by Mike or by trusted colleagues with equivalent experience who Mike has previously worked with.
Mike Hood has helped organizations build and implement people strategies that engage and inspire people and improve business performance across multiple sectors in the UK and internationally. Mike’s passion is helping organizations to unlock the potential of their people to build better businesses.
Mike’s experience is that, irrespective of organizational size and sector, the fundamentals of great people management are the same for any organization. It starts with ensuring that people management priorities and practices are aligned with and enable the organization’s business strategy. The second differentiator is ensuring that people management practices complement one another in offering an engaging employee experience that will attract and retain the people that the organization needs to implement its strategy. Finally, it’s critical that people managers are equipped to and held accountable for delivering the people management practices to bring to life that employee experience for every colleague, every day.
Mike also has deep experience in managing employee relations in both unionised and non-union workplaces, helping organizations recognise and mitigate employee relations risks and both stay connected with their people and build effective relationships with recognised trade unions at local and national level.
