ScaleUp Radio

Sep 13, 2023

Hello, and welcome to another people inspiring episode of ScaleUp Radio. I’m Granger Forson - or find me on LinkedIn.


Today we are delving into the fascinating world of HR consultancy with Kelly Tucker, the vibrant owner of HR Star. Providing support to businesses in the UK Kelly's knack for strategy and people engagement has made her a formidable force in the industry.


If you’ve ever wondered about the true power of HR in a business, this episode is for you. We dive into what it means to truly engage employees, the importance of aligning company values, and the crucial role of HR in facilitating this alignment. We explore the necessary practices to attract and retain talent in an entrepreneurial setting, including the significance of onboarding, recognition, and promoting employee wellbeing.


Kelly is not just an HR expert, but also an entrepreneurial mastermind, having navigated the tricky waters of setting up her own business. She gets real about her journey, the challenges she's faced - like managing young children while starting a business and learning how to say no - and how she has thrived through it all. She also talks about the importance of having the right team and the value of turning to experts to handle tasks outside her realm, something any business owner can relate to.


As a woman who believes in creating an ideal work environment for her team, prioritizing self-care, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance, Kelly's insights extend far beyond business strategies. Today's episode is not only about how to grow a successful business but also about how to cultivate a fulfilling life.


So, let's jump right in and learn from the trailblazing journey of Kelly Tucker - where people are not just a resource but the heart of the business.
