Emma del Torto’s 10-Year Entrepreneurial Journey With Effective HRM

I was delighted to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Emma Del Torto, Managing Director of the very successful HR consultancy based in Wales in the UK, Effective HRM.

Emma del Torto on the A Better HR Business Podcast

Originally from London, Emma moved to Wales to attend law school at Cardiff University in 1993 before qualifying as a solicitor in 1998, specialising in employment law. She also holds a Master’s degree in employment law.

With over 20 years’ experience in employment law and HR, Emma established Effective HRM in 2011 with a mission of becoming the UK’s most cost-effective, personable and valuable HR service. 10 years on, she still feels passionately about her vision of creating a nation full of positive, proactive and empowered employers.

Straight talking, pragmatic and a great team player, Emma focusses on delivering expert legal advice, combined with the preventative good practice of HR management and commercial realism. She’s particularly talented at getting to grips with complex issues quickly and resolving problems with a collaborative and solution focussed approach.

In a wide-ranging discussion, Emma and I talked about:

  • [00:01:38] – Emma’s background.
  • [00:02:26] – Why did Emma start Effective HRM all those (10) years ago?

  • [00:25:21] – The importance of retainer clients.
  • [00:26:29] – With this, you don’t have a business to sell.
  • [00:27:30] – Want to sell your HR consultancy? (NOTE: Emma is looking for more HR businesses to buy).
  • [00:27:39] – Structuring retainers and agreements (including a possible difference between men and women).
