About

At Global People Solutions, we are passionate about helping you to make a positive difference to your business.

Today’s people spend a lot of time at work so it’s important that the workplace is enjoyable and supports them to achieve high performance levels.

The workplace is continually evolving, becoming diverse, multinational and multigenerational, which means you need to be flexible and able to respond quickly and effectively to the changing needs of your customers or clients.

In these times of fierce competition, there are so many pressures on us to reduce costs.

Set up by Elaine Codona, Director, Global People Solutions have been supporting clients who care about their people and who want to make positive changes to their business since 2014.

Any great business strategy has to include your people development and training needs. Rather than settling for off-the-shelf products, let us help you by designing and delivering solutions which meet your specific needs.

Time means money – if you choose to work with us, our direct approach and practical advice means that there is no time-wasted.

 

Testimonials

 

“I was introduced to Elaine at a CIPD event and was immediately impressed with her professionalism and HR experience. Elaine initially worked with Zurich to deliver one to one coaching to employees, providing an impartial view and working with those employees who needed some extra time and energy to focus on themselves.   I then asked Elaine if she had capacity to provide support on a large change program where we needed additional HR technical experience and a professional who could ‘hit the ground running’.  Elaine certainly did this and was able to provide strong technical advice and support to our business.  Nothing was any trouble for Elaine and I particularly liked her proactive approach and flexibility.  During the course of the program, Elaine displayed great teamwork and fitted in with the wider HR team, took accountability and ownership of finding and implementing solutions, and focused on the right outcomes for both our employees and Zurich.  I had excellent feedback from the business and particularly the Executive Team who very much valued her guidance and contribution.” – Dee Copley, Head of HR, Zurich
“I contacted Global People Solutions for support with getting the best from my team’s performance. Elaine’s help has been of great personal value as well as a benefit to the staff and ultimately the business.” – Ron Berry, Managing Director at Three.fm

 

Our Clients

 

Elaine Codona, Owner

Highly skilled at helping businesses to manage people through change by creating, defining and supporting them with the implementation of people strategies, I support businesses in many different sectors (private, public or third). This is done by creating bespoke solutions that enable them to get the best from their people. This may be related to recruiting the right people, identifying and managing talent, ensuring line managers have the skills to manage and get the best performance from their teams or ensuring that businesses are keeping on the right side of the law by understanding the latest developments in the employment arena.

As a senior executive, I have significant experience in operating on a global scale, having successfully supported businesses such as Coca-Cola Enterprises, Barclays Bank and Zurich Insurance Group through change programmes (e.g. acquisitions, mergers, TUPE transfers), creating talent development programmes and managing complex employee relations issues in line with cross-jurisdictional employment legislation. I am a high achiever with a track record of maximising opportunities and growth within the most challenging and competitive environments.

I am a Member of the Institute of Directors, a Chartered Member of the CIPD, a Member of the International Coach Federation and an Employer Representative to the Isle of Man Employment Tribunal.
