Prior to setting up KeystoneHR Jo was Head of HR for a Top 100 law firm where, for a number of years, she was part of the senior management team, responsible for developing and delivering the HR Strategy. Key projects included mergers & acquisitions, supporting a firm-wide rebrand (including values and culture change), introducing a partner performance appraisal system and leading entry in to the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For, which culminated in a top 60 ranking in the first year of entry.
