Aberdeen-based HR consultancy, Involve HR is celebrating a decade in business with the launch of a programme of community initiatives which will run throughout its anniversary year.
The business, which was founded in 2009 by Emma Barker and Gillian Tierney, provides HR support to organisations across the energy, higher education and third sectors. Its clients include some of the North East’s most well-known charities, including Aberdeen Cyrenians and Aberdeen Sports Village, whose work inspired many of the activities the Involve HR team have planned over the next 12 months.
Partner, Emma Barker said, “Our tenth anniversary is an important milestone for our business and one which we knew we wanted to celebrate.
“Our goal was to do something meaningful and we decided a calendar of fundraising initiatives would be a great way of making every month of our tenth-year count.
“Working with some of our third sector clients, as well as other organisations we have built relationships with over our ten years in business, our programme includes an awareness campaign to keep Aberdeen coastline beautiful in partnership with The Highlander Café Bus, sanitary, clothing and toiletries appeals and a number of healthy living initiatives.”
Involve HR’s location in the centre of the city and, in particular, its long-established relationship with Aberdeen Cyrenians played a key role in the plans the team made to give back to the local community.
Co-founder, Gillian Tierney said, “We have been very fortunate to work with the fantastic team at Aberdeen Cyrenians since we launched our business in 2009.
“They were the first client to come on board with us and it has been a real privilege to have shared our journey with them over the last decade. We are so pleased that we are able to give something back for their loyalty to us.”
Chief Executive at Aberdeen Cyrenians, Mike Burns said, “Involve HR has provided Aberdeen Cyrenians with an exceptional service over the last 10 years and we were delighted when the team discussed their plans with us.
“We are thrilled that they will be working with us on an appeal for toiletries for victims of domestic abuse, many of whom leave their homes with nothing, and we really hope the local community will get involved to support this.”
