Lisa Esposito-Maffei

HR Consultant and Mental Health First Aid Instructor

Hi, I’m Lisa! I have over 10 years experience in HR Management and Training.

My Story

My Name is Lisa Esposito-Maffei and I live in Hadfield, Glossop. I am married to Phil and we have two beautiful children – Ava and Luca – and our Cavapoo Max completes the family.  The name ALM was derived from the names of my children and our little dog – Ava Luca Max.

Born and bred in a small village near Penrith, Cumbria, I am qualified to CIPD Level 7 advanced Postgraduate Diploma in HR management. I have spent my HR career working in various roles as Company Trainer, HR Advisor, Group Training Manager, and HR Manager – predominantly working in Manufacturing both Food and Heavy Engineering and more recently I have supported business in retail, marketing, restaurants, trades, hair and beauty.

I support business owners in all aspect of HR from taking on your first employee right through to ending the employee/employer relationship.

I specialise in absence management and employee wellbeing, which is supported through my accreditations of WRAW certified practitioner and an MHFA England Mental Health First Aid instructor.

In the past year 141.4 million working days were lost because of sickness or injury in the UK. This is equivalent to 4.4 days per worker. Not only does absenteeism lead to reduced productivity levels and increased labour costs, it can also lead to poor morale among colleagues who are having to fill in for absent staff without any retributions for their absence.

The top 3 reasons for absence are cited as mental ill health, musculoskeletal injuries and stress.

By working with me, I will utilise over 10 years worth of experience and knowledge to work with you to tackle the route course of the issue, leading to a happier, more engaged workforce which in turn will increase productivity levels and output.

My Values & Beliefs

Employee wellbeing is important

I believe that it is important for employees to be fit, healthy and happy. This is done through creating a work culture that promotes health through all aspects of their lives, both physically and mentally.

You need to get the basic people foundations right first

If you ensure you have the right people in the right jobs and they are:

  • rewarded fairly for the work they do;
  • correct policies and procedures are in place;
  • staff are treated with dignity and respect; and
  • levels of engagement and motivation are maintained

you will set great foundations for your business to progress.

Correct procedures & policies will empower staff

I strongly believe that if you have the correct procedures and policies in place which are easily understood and practical, along with training, trust and good communications, your staff will feel empowered and help you and your business achieve its goals.

When I’m not working, I enjoy running. You might see me pounding the pavements of Glossop or running along the Longdendale and around the reservoirs. Last year I completed 3 Marathons – Manchester, Ladybower and York. This year, I have entered the Conti Thunder Run where you basically run as many 6 mile laps as you can in 24 hours.
