Viridian HR

The unique aspect of Viridian HR is the expertise and knowledge in both UK and France Human Resources.

With over 20 years of experience, the director Karine Lipinski operates in the mindset of a true HR Business Partner in the objective to support medium to large organisations and businesses with French operations.

Karine and her team are regularly reminded that their Anglo-French experience is hard to find. Clients often initially reach out because of the differences in culture and HR processes between the two countries, and the gaps this can cause in day-to-day team management. They are often asked about French law, which is rather complicated and has changed immensely over the last few years. 

Working in fast-paced industries from manufacturing to retail and hospitality, Viridian HR services focus mainly on employee relations, compliance work, HR audits (including for mergers and acquisitions), people strategy, complex change projects, and HR outsourcing.  

Every month, Viridian HR offers a free HR Consultancy that can be booked through the Buckinghamshire Business First website. You can also follow them on Linkedin or sign up to their newsletter to receive the latest HR developments and updates.
