A Co Down human resources consultancy is launching a training division as part of its new investment plan.

HeadsTogether, based in Holywood, said it has acquired additional premises to launch its new standalone centre to support its growing training provision.

The firm, which provides a range of private, public and third sector organisations with human resources advice, including employment-related issues, also plans to grow its team of 10 staff.

HeadsTogether director Lynsey Stewart said: "Training new and existing staff can be an organisation's biggest challenge, especially in a rapidly changing business environment where productivity, leadership and staff well-being have never been so important.

"Agility is key in transforming how organisations hire, develop and manage skills and talent and as a business which promotes development, innovation and fresh thinking, we're excited about the positive impact which our investment and our new dedicated focus in workplace training will bring."

Director Joanne Kane said: "We've built our success delivering effective and accessible human resources support, as well as specialised consultancy, to enable organisations of every size to benefit from actively managing their workforce and we're delighted to be expanding our services with an additional focus on training.

"Clear and honest pragmatic advice and cutting-edge expertise is critical in what can sometimes be a complex and challenging field. By further investing in our own business, we're proud to be sharing more of our experience with others who need help with theirs."
