Introduction to HReSource
by the Founder David Laud
HReSource originated as a simple monthly update for business owners and HR professionals, distributed via email. Research had identified two critical factors that were hindering business growth and causing owners sleepless nights.
- Employment legislation was complicated and prevented SME’s from taking necessary risks in hiring all important talent to develop their business.
- Hiring an in-house employment law specialist was pretty much bottom of all business owners lists of those they intended to recruit.
Given the above points it was clear there existed a real need for clear, non-legalese, topical and accurate information. And so HReSource was born.
The approach of the business at launch was shaped by a conversation with Jeff Bezos during a marketing forum. A fascinating story I’m sure the founder David Laud would be happy to share with you when you join our community.
After many years developing the brand and managing a six figure subscription mailing list, which made the update the most popular in Europe, it was time to look at ways in which a community might evolve and greater engagement and collaboration be possible.
Originally we looked at the usual social media suspects, settling on the creation of a Group that was housed within the LinkedIn platform.
Over the years this Group became less active, an experience shared by many others running such initiatives on Linkedin. Something needed to change and we started to search for a new home and focus for HReSource.
A number of ideas were trialled but in March 2020 David decided to re-purpose HReSource and focus specifically on helping business owners and executives, better manage their commercial and personal matters in light of Covid-19.
An online community has been established that migrated from that original group that “rested” (carefully chosen word) on the LinkedIn platform. We are now partnering with Mighty Networks who offer an ad free, private, secure but entirely flexible structure within which we can welcome members and offer them a rich experience of advice, information, signposting and participation.
We’re evolving the concept and features within our community to match the needs of business owners and executives at this very difficult time. It’s not perfect but we’re making every effort to offer great value, a spirit of collaboration and true support and connectivity. These are the key principles that we believe will see us through and beyond the pandemic.
Take a look, join for free and drop us a line with what you’re looking to achieve from HResource and let’s see if we can make that happen.
