About us


Founder and Director Anna set up her business HR- Puzzle, when she was made redundant when pregnant with her little girl, and after she finished maternity leave, really struggled to find a role that was flexible or part time. After having over 10 years HR experience in a number of large organisations and having a BA Hons and MA in HR Management and working as a HR business partner this came a shock.

HR Puzzle is an independent HR consultancy based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.  Anna specialises in all things flexible working from supporting businesses and individuals to work in a modern flexible way. From creating policies, and training  for businesses to operating a flexible working helpline for individuals on how to make flexible working applications to how to appeal if these have been rejected. 

HR Puzzle also supports SME’s with all things HR from employment contracts, employee handbooks, disciplinary and grievances to redundancy.

What sets us apart?

✔  Wanting to provide a bespoke, personalised, friendly, consistent HR service with no technical jargon at a reasonable price

✔  We operate a pay per minute phone service, giving basic HR advice when you just want to chat something over but don’t know where to start

✔  We specialise in supporting mothers/ women in business who have SME’s. Not only does Anna have over 10 years HR experience, but is also a mother, woman and has set up her own business. Where better to find support from someone who has the same experiences

✔  We promote flexible working! One of the key factors that created HR Puzzle is a lack of flexible roles available. For larger organisations who use or would like to use HR in house we work with an independent HR recruitment team, who specialise in recruiting HR professionals on flexible contracts. We will visit you to discuss how we can help you on this new topic that this becoming an issue businesses will need to consider before legal changes may occur
