A Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Fellow (FCIPD) who has worked with companies to develop their HR professionals, design HR apprenticeship schemes and start-up HR functions.

My proactive, positive and innovative approach and my commercial focus means I translate visions and strategies into business solutions and cost savings for your people management, adding value.
Building strong, trusted and collaborative business relationships with all my clients, providing a friendly, professional and pro-active approach to our partnerships. Working with all my clients to be a valued member of their business management team.
Identifying their issues at the earliest point to prevent escalation to provide positive solutions and mitigating risk.
We provide HR Consultancy solutions for all small to medium sized companies. With specialist advice and services to help businesses maximise the efficiency of their HR operations and implement appropriate new policies and procedures in the best way possible.
Our HR Consultancy is valued by companies for our ability to bring an outsider’s objective viewpoint. We are often brought into address a particular problem or deficit and are tasked with assessment, auditing, proposal and implementation of a policy designed to address the deficit and drive business change.

Kim Taylor (FCIPD)
When I'm relaxing I enjoy reading, gardening, cooking and looking after my Kio carp pond. Living on the South Coast I spend time walking with my husband and dog (Scrumpy).
My family are very important to me and seeing their achievements makes me very proud.
We’ve all heard the saying “from little acorns mighty oaks grow”. Here at Acorn HR Services, we want to bring this saying to life in our support to your businesses. We are looking at working collaboratively with you to identify how we can guide you to secure future organic growth by nurturing your business using our expertise to enable you to become an employer of choice.
My approach is based on the need to be adaptable, proactive and responsive where possible, to see things from both sides along with providing pragmatic solutions, which will be different for each business and help Companies to improve efficiency, effectiveness, productivity and performance.
