I need a great workplace culture
‘Culture’ has become somewhat of a buzz word and so it should! Made most famous by the likes of Netflix, Zappos and Timpson’s, culture is essentially the unwritten ways of doing things that make a business a great place to work.
Recently, the words ‘toxic workplace culture’ have been used more and more often. This is when a workplace becomes a fearful, negative place to work. It comes with the trend of ‘command and control’ management (aka micromanagement) and is run by creating a sense of fear amongst staff.
If you’re experiencing high levels of staff turnover, sickness absence and lateness and your workplace is a soulless place to be, chances are you’ve got a toxic culture. That’s the bad news … the good news is, it can be changed.
Our mission is to help small businesses create amazing workplace cultures where employees can thrive and the business can scale, profit and grow successfully.
The best workplace cultures embody collaboration and a flatter, more coaching focused style of management. They have a strong vision and values, creating a tribe of amazing people, all working to a collective vision. Their people are empowered to get the job done without constant micro-management.
If this feels like a dream and you’re thinking this can’t be achieved for your business, we know it can. We’ve been doing this work for more than 10 years and there’s not one business we’ve failed to transform where the business owner has been onboard, and had the desire to change.
Who is it for?
The Foundations of Success programme is for business owners who want to create a great workplace culture and reap the benefits of a more engaged and productive team.
For any business to create and sustain high performance, it is necessary to align and focus the mindset and behaviours of its people with the goals of the business leader, but it is equally important to create a workplace where connection, relationships and people are at its core.
“Your employees will be happy, fully engaged and out-perform in their roles when they find purpose, connection and meaning in their work. It is your responsibility as a leader to give them that.” Natalie, Dynamic HR Services

From the start, it was clear that Natalie has a clear, broad and in depth understanding of HR practices. She provided completely reliable and sound services in the standard areas. She demonstrated a real understanding of my business and the people within it, and how the combination of the two needed to work to meet the business needs….. I increasingly turn to her for use as a sounding board and general advice, and it is always delivered in a positive, down to earth manner that is extremely refreshing. Her judgement is exceptional and I have come to have a high degree of trust and respect for her.
Natalie is innovative, accurate and compassionate; having worked with Natalie on a couple of projects now I have been thankful of her professional approach which is not only reliable but highly effective. Her ability to discern the facts of the situation combined with her creative capacity provides solutions that are successful and in-keeping with her company name – Dynamic. On the human side Natalie shows good empathy which really allows her skills to be received with excellent communication skills that make an individual feel really valued.
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Natalie upon a number of key HR challenges we faced as a business, from effective contracts to employee management, disciplinary advice and more. I’ve always found her to be truthful, honest and spot on with her advice. Very friendly and welcoming character and only wants what is best for you. I’d have no hesitation in recommending Natalie or her HR Services to anyone needing top quality advice.
Natalie is an expert in her field and a pleasure to deal with. The Assessment Centre she designed and ran for one of our clients was World Class and I would highly recommend her to you if you need any HR projects completing.
Natalie has been extremely helpful in providing key HR support throughout the lifespan of our young but growing organisation. I can’t recommend her services enough.
Natalie Lewis assisted me with a complicated disciplinary issue which involved managing disciplinary, grievance, sickness absence and working with me to assist my client with the internal HR proceedings. Natalie built up a good rapport with the client and managed the situation well internally for them.
