We are Curious
“Sometimes, I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”– Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
We believe that we learn best when we have the room to play and be curious and we carry that idea with us as we continue to grow our offering and Cactus HR.
We have a growth mindset and love learning (about you and your business!)
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” – Charles Darwin
We work with clients of all sizes and from lots of different sectors, that means we don’t apply a one-size fits all approach! We will use our experts and deep subject knowledge to guide you, we are flexible and pretty nimble too!
We are Courageous
“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default” – J K Rowling
Courage not to be confused with bravery – is having the balls to do something even when you are bricking it (not the official Oxford Dictionary definition). HR is sometimes referred to as “fluffy”, whilst we are quite partial to a bit of cashmere, we provide our clients with courageous and practical solutions.
“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel” – Maya Angelou
Our business isn’t ‘HR’, it is People and we pride ourselves on creating human connection. We believe that kindness and respect in business is not just a nice-to-have, but essential.
We are Unique
“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” Dr Seuss
From our Clients to our Associates, we embrace our differences. We know that it is our uniqueness that makes us who we are – which means we have the power to innovate and try new things. Our solutions and carefully selected Partners share our passion to do things a little different.
“Don’t gobblefunk around with words” – The BFG, Roald Dahl
We don’t like over-complicating things for our clients – we say what we mean and mean what we say! It’s a simple mantra but we like it that way. We spare you the bullsh*t and avoid HR jargon.
