Together-HR is an HR consultancy business, co-owned by Heather McVicar and Sarah Ramsden.
Together-HR is co-owned by Heather McVicar (PgDip FCIPD) and Sarah Ramsden (BA (Hons) PgDip FCIPD), who first met working at Rolls-Royce plc in 1996.
After two decades spent working in some of the UK's leading STEM companies - including Rolls-Royce, ALSTOM, RS Components, Electrocomponents and Travis Perkins - they decided in 2018 to launch their own HR consultancy business.
Heather and Sarah see the big opportunities STEM companies should focus on to realise their people benefits and thrive as a result. Drawing on their extensive HR experience and a joint passion for the area of diversity and inclusion, they help clients realise the business performance benefits gained from creating dynamic, inclusive workplace environments.
Their determination to change the nature of STEM employment stems from a growing skills shortage, exacerbated by a continuing lack of diversity, not just gender equality and ethnic diversity. Addressing these issues can have a positive long-term effect on a company's financial performance and working environment, ensuring businesses are better equipped to meet long-term performance challenges.
