Tracey Murphy

Here is the lowdown on Tracey, Managing Director and Founder of HR Savvy.

  • What inspired you to join the HR profession?

The HR seed was first planted with me after experiencing first-hand some pretty bad behaviours and practices in an organisation that really should have known better.  Then about a year later, in 1998, I was working with a very experienced and talented HR Director who was very skilled in handling relationships with trade unions - and he encouraged me to consider a future in HR.  I was on a mission to be a role model for my daughter so I signed up to start my CIPD studies straight away and 4 years later I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Personnel Management.  Within 12 months of graduating I was in a senior HR role in a global insurance company where I then remained until 2012.

  • Describe yourself in 4 words?

Driven.  Fast.  Consistent.  Composed.

  • Who inspires you?

My dad.  J.K. Rowling.  My late grandmother.  Michelle Obama.

  • What are your interests outside of business?

Yoga.  Walking the countryside.  Non-fiction books.  Rollercoasters.  Motorsport.  Travel.  Cake.

  • If you could give one piece of advice to business owners, what would it be?

Read this book - Traction by Gino Wickman.  Then call me to arrange a chat about the next steps.

  • What are your main skills?

Dealing with really big messy problems that involve fixing relationships and processes.  Building bridges between people.  Visionary.  Coaching and developing people.  Making change happen.

  • Describe a typical day in the life of Tracey?

Apart from the fact that I am usually up around 5am, at a yoga class or the gym most evenings and in bed for 10pm, the rest of my day is never typical.  In a typical week I will have held our regular meeting with my team; attended at least one networking meeting, met with, delivered proposals or had telephone calls with business owners who are considering our services and spoken with our suppliers or partners about future strategy delivery.
