About Kate Underwood HR & Training, Hampshire

I have always been passionate about helping small businesses become a success. So I decided to combine my 20 years experience in retail, hospitality, commercial travel and healthcare with my entrepreneurial spirit.

In 2015, I started Kate Underwood HR & Training, Hampshire and in the intervening years, we’ve grown from strength to strength.

With substantial experience in HR enhanced through a BA in Business Studies & HRM, coupled with my emphasis on proactive, practical assistance, I help alleviate the concerns that small business owners worry most about; i.e. that they are not keeping pace with HR compliance.

How We Work

We believe in transparency and keeping things simple. Maybe you are a business just starting up or looking to grow; either way, we can help you develop your values so that a strong partnership is formed between employer and employee. Remember your team is your greatest asset. As a small business, you need to work well with your employees and turn your staff into ambassadors for your company.

Who we Work With

We love to work with independent businesses, from fledgeling IT/Tech Startups to experienced enterprises within the hospitality industry. I’m at my best working closely with clients to understand their business and what they are trying to achieve. Then I take the necessary steps to turn their ideas a reality.

Please feel free to take a look at my LinkedIn profile for a more detailed summary of my career to date.

Meet the Team

Since May 2018, we have have been lucky to work from a lovely office space within Rownhams House in Southampton, Hampshire.
