Businessman Peter Lawrence has swapped the Qatar sun for the cooler climes of West Norfolk to set up a new consultancy to help local companies.
Peter, pictured, is heading up a small specialist team of experts named the Human Capital Department, based in Lynn, offering practical bespoke solutions to local businesses.
He helps companies adapt and grow by using their most valuable resource, their staff, as effectively as possible.
He said: “Human Capital Department isn’t just the new name for what we used to call personnel management or human resource management. It’s about the people, but with greater emphasis on accurate and timely data to drive decisions around individuals. I chose to call us a ‘department’ because we want clients to think of us as a business partner and additional part of their own company, rather than just external consultants.
“My aim is to help businesses maximise the potential within their workforce.”
The Human Capital Department are providing a retained service to small and medium enterprises who are too small to have their own personnel or HR department. Such businesses still need to ensure legal compliance and will want to adopt best HR practice to get the maximum contribution from their workforce, because people make the difference. For larger companies, Peter provides HR project support in a cost effective and efficient way.
“I have family in the Lynn area so know West Norfolk well, and being close to the East Coast energy industry is helpful.”
