Gemma Murphy, the founder of Ringwood based View HR, has been appointed by Stewarts Garden Centres to consult and support the business as it prepares to expand in Southern England. View HR has now reviewed employment contracts, the company’s employer’s handbook, and ensured that policies and procedures satisfy recent changes to legislation.
Terry Head, Retail and Marketing Director at Stewarts, said that the review is part of the company’s policy of fairness to their 230 employees.
“Our teams at our Broomhill and Christchurch garden centres, and those in our Nursery and Landscaping businesses, are key to our success and we are proud to receive very positive feedback from our customers regarding the level of service provided on a day to day basis. This family run business has a great history of fairness to its employees and we want to keep our good employment relationship in place as we look to grow.”
Gemma Murphy, a leading HR and Employment Law Consultant and former specialist solicitor, launched her consultancy in 2015 said that Stewarts is the first major retailing client in the region to benefit from her extensive employment law experience: “It’s a pleasure to work with a business that is so committed to fostering such a positive culture for its employees.”
