A year in people #96 – Jen

Every workplace has a Jen. That person who makes sure the place runs smoothly. Organises stuff, knows where everything is, deals with visitors and parcels and stationery and snacks. They know how everything works and what needs to be done when. They look after everyone. They deal with the things that most people working there... Continue Reading →

A year in people #93 – Tanya

When I was little, Christmas dinner was always at our house. My Mum, who's not really a lover of cooking, always ended up catering for the masses because we had the biggest house. I'm pretty sure she counted down the years when one day, it might be her turn to go somewhere else. My brother... Continue Reading →

A year in people #91 – Rich C

Me and Rich used to work together in Lincoln, although not that closely.

I’m sure he finds me mildly annoying. Every new starter is given a tongue-in-cheek-but-is-it-really Nate... Continue Reading →

A year in people #71 – Sue Scott

Sue started her role as Human Resources Director at Lincolnshire Police in 2005 with a massive bang. The Personnel Department she inherited was tired, outdated and not really fit for purpose, and so Sue invoked a total transformation - implementing the Ulrich model to turn Personnel into Human Resources (for non-HR peeps, the Ulrich model is...

A year in people #56 – Lily

Back in 2009, I had a message telling me I should go to see Lily in Lincoln hospital asap, like, that day, as there was a chance she might not make it. She was very poorly. This week I sent a Happy Birthday message to my friend and old boss. We're still in touch, 10... Continue Reading →
