Our History

Welcome to Meraki HR. Emma Browning MA, FCIPD, founded Meraki HR at the end of 2014, after over 30 years of working in the corporate world. Having started her career in recruitment and sales, Emma moved into the world of HR in 2000, for a small, well regarded local company; Oxford Instruments. Emma started as an HR Business Partner at Oxford Instruments, where she studied to become a qualified HR professional at Oxford Brookes. Emma went on to work in a number of well known companies in management and leadership roles such as Porsche Cars Great Britain Ltd, where she completed her Masters in the Management of Innovation and Change and finally for Harley-Davidson where she became a qualified MBTI and Gallup Strengths Coach.

Having been an employee, an HR Director and having managed her own teams for the last 20 years, Emma knows how important it is to have great employees. It’s not luck, its hard work, experience and great people processes which have ensured Emma’s had great people in her own teams and the businesses she’s worked in! You will often hear Emma saying ” you don’t have a great business without great people.”
