Alison Benney made some tough choices and took some brave decisions to enable herself to follow her chosen HR career. At the age of 30 she went back to University and spent 9 months in halls of residence to successfully complete a Post Graduate degree. This opened doors to jobs at a higher managerial level and ultimately her goal to run her own HR support business.
Alison had a strategic and planned approach to finding the right job using a bunch of criteria and shares with us the risks and benefits of being an entrepreneur. It needs a very different mindset and has a steep learning curve.
We look at the modern challenges for HR, the increased stress and pressure and Alison’s thoughts around the recent rise in awareness of mental health.
People become empowered when they realise that they have choice and control over everything that they do. Alison is certainly an example of that in action – she has made some amazing decisions and achieved some brilliant things.
