From Emma C Browning Ltd to MERAKI HR – the story

Changes are afoot!

Emma C Browning Ltd (ECB Ltd) is a well established and highly regarded HR Consultancy that helps small but ambitious SME’s succeed through its most precious asset; its people. The success of ECB Ltd has largely been driven by the determination, expertise and passion of its founding Director, Emma Browning, who has delivered an exceptional level of service to its clients.

Emma started her career over 30 years ago and became an HR Director in 2012. Emma knew all too well the common failings of hiring external consultants who are not personally vested in, or as passionate about the success of your business as you are. Emma decided it was time to make a change and left the corporate world in 2015 to set up her own HR consultancy, as she wanted to help and support SME’s with her passion and expertise for everything people related.

Put simply, Emma puts her heart and soul into everything that she does for her clients – and that shines through in the successful outcomes of their shared projects. Emma loves what she does, and she does everything with a little bit of ‘meraki’.

Meraki – (MEH-RAH -KEE) is a word, often used by modern Greeks to describe doing something that you do with soul, creativity, or an absolute passion — when you put “something of yourself” into what you’re doing.” Meraki is who Emma is and what she believes in. And her clients agree:

It’s been a delight to work with Emma – she’s highly knowledgeable, she does what she says she’ll do and all in a professional, yet friendly and approachable manner Jane Smith Financial Planning, Nicola Watts, Director

Emma is very engaging, very hands-on – she challenges, but is always professional when she does so. Chris Brown MD Appleton woods

…she understands how to blend HR compliance with commercial understanding; a rare skill that both I & my business are hugely grateful for. Jenn Fenton, Director Othala Property

Emma maintains her professionalism whilst bringing a levity to difficult circumstances allowing us all to breathe a little. Dr Sonya Wallbank, Director, The Arden Centre

Since its launch in 2015, demand for Emma’s special brand of ‘meraki’ has surpassed expectations, and after a great deal of thought and debate, Emma took the decision last year to grow. Throughout 2018, Emma has been carefully selecting a small but perfectly formed team of highly qualified HR and support professionals to work alongside her, who share Emma’s “meraki” approach to HR as well as the values that matter so much to her and her clients.

Emma and her team provide a full range of bespoke HR and recruitment services to its clients; all delivered with the trademark meraki soul and passion. And to celebrate these new beginnings, Emma C Browning Ltd has decided to embrace its key values and name itself after what it does best.
