Carol’s thorough and practical understanding of labour legislation has led to her compiling and producing operating policy and procedure manuals, as well as staff recruitment processes for major corporate clients. Carol has designed and set up numerous HR administrative systems, including record-keeping, contractual agreements and employee benefits management to comply with company policies and legal requirements. She has also introduced systems and consultative structures for the resolution of conflict in the workplace, and for the development of processes to improve the internal and external relationships at work. Her more recent work has included running workshops in organisational development and basic business skills.
