You can’t escape from it no matter how hard you try, and it continues to apply throughout the employment lifecycle from recruitment to exit. You need to be legally compliant and we can help to ensure you are. Don’t be frightened of it ..just trust us to help you understand it.

Olyvetree HR was founded in 2014 by Yvonne Devereux who has over 25 years’ of experience in the People Profession.

“I know that managing people is not easy (I have done it). I know that interpreting employment law is also very challenging (I know, I studied it and now spend a great deal of my time helping clients interpret it and play fairly and legally). People are unpredictable and every single situation I have dealt with over the years has been different. This why I love what I do … no two days are ever the same”.
“Change is inevitable in everything that we do, our lives, our jobs, our relationships, our family … everything. Plans change too and we just have to learn to adapt, just like businesses do when markets change, circumstances change or something unforeseen happens …. Like a Virus!!”.
