The People Behind MyPeopleClub
Krystyna Petersen is an experienced, highly-skilled, and compassionate HR professional, coach and business owner, as well as being a Fellow of the CIPD.
With more than 20 years of experience in the industry, Krystyna has made it her mission to find ways to help the UK workforce become happier, more collaborative, and more productive than ever. By relying on her deep understanding of psychology, NLP, and human behaviour, Krystyna is paving the way towards a stronger HR community for all HR professionals and People Managers.
Like many who have come before me, my life has by no means been easy! Growing up in a single-parent family, it was pretty tough at times and I grew up learning the value of honesty, integrity, working hard, continually learning and developing, and striving for success. I didn’t have many people to help me along the way so it was a case of ‘if you want something, work hard and go and get it!’
I started in the world of work at 13 years old when I got a local job delivering papers. From that time on, I have always worked hard and it was that strong work ethic, resilience and sheer will in many cases, that propelled me to climb the corporate career ladder. I started in HR in my early 20’s while being an Hotel Manager and worked my way up, becoming the only female HR Director in the UK for a large global organisation with some 40,000 staff worldwide.
My time as a HRD was rewarding, yet challenging. However, after spending several years working exhausting hours, feeling stressed, isolated, with constant fire-fighting, along with trying to navigate the often complex world of HR, I became totally burnt out and decided to reassess my working life and priorities!
At that point, I made the decision to do things my own way, and launched my own HR and Coaching Consultancy. A year or so later, the idea for MyPeopleClub was born – a platform and community that will help HR professionals and People Managers access the support and resources that I didn’t have access to, while I was developing in the world of HR. MyPeopleClub is designed to save you time, money, effort and stress by providing everything you need for your day to day role. It’s also a place for downtime, fun, socialising and networking with likeminded people.
I really understand the value and importance of a strong, tight knit community and it’s my mission to create the most vibrant and engaged HR community in the UK!
Our mission is to build a strong community of HR professionals and People Managers, a huge support network and a reliable and trusted resource centre.
MPC is a place where as a member, you will not only have access to template documents, policies, coaching/training modules, (and much, much more), but you will also have access to experts and businesses across a wide variety of fields, in order to help and support you with all the things you need to achieve!
It’s our mission to help HR Professionals and People Managers to: Connect – Develop – Achieve!
As HR professionals and People Managers, community is an integral part of what we do every single day – whether it be helping businesses create better, more people-centric environments, or strengthening the connections between the people who work in them. However, we don’t just care about professional communities – we care about all communities, including the ones we live and move in every single day.
That’s why giving back to our community is one of our biggest goals. We want to do our part to help those who need us, and we’re doing it by using our platform as a way to raise funds for worthwhile causes. (Check out our charity page for more info).
Service is one of our biggest values. We want to serve our MPC members, provide content and tools that you want, and support you in the best ways possible.
Integrity is at the very heart of everything we do here at MyPeopleClub and is the cornerstone on which our business is built.
Professionalism – We work in a professional industry – The way we are and the content we produce is always professional. However, we also do have fun where appropriate!
Quality – All our documentation, tools, Masterclasses and other resources are produced to an extremely high standard & quality. The platform will continue to expand and grow along with our HR community, and every care is taken to ensure we are giving you the very best we can.
More about Team MPC…
Although Krystyna is the founder and Director of MPC, the scope, knowledge, insights and experience that can be found on the platform goes so much wider than just her 20+ years in the industry. Team MPC is made up of dedicated individuals who are passionate and committed to helping HR Professionals and People Managers achieve, along with external partners and experts from across the industry (and beyond!), who all want to see you succeed!
However, it’s not just all about us!
As part of this ever growing community, members support, encourage and help each other. A collaborative and community approach is so much more helpful and fulfilling than everyone working alone or in silo’s and we’re very driven to grow the most supportive network in our industry. We want to take away as much stress, anxiety, frustration and isolation as we can. We know how hard this industry can be at times – we’ve been there and lived in those shoes!
