Where would we be without academia, research and high-tech?  I’d probably be dead, or at least have no teeth.  Let’s recognise academics’, researchers’ and knowledge transferers’ value and make their HR efficient so they can focus on their core work.

Tweedie Consulting specialises in Human Resources improvement and leadership in higher education, knowledge-intensive and not-for-profit organisations.  We ensure that clients’ HR operations and systems are a strategic asset which continuously improve.

We understand diverse, international workplaces brimming with ‘knowledge workers’ and our knowledge of trends in legal compliance, data analysis, budgeting, governance, HR systems and our international HR network keeps our work relevant and impactful.
