Hi! I'm Catherine, founder of HR Design Toolkit, HR manager since I left university and entrepreneur since 2016.

After quite some years in HR in the corporate world, I escaped ;-) to explore the exciting scene of startups and scale-ups. As Head of People of Showpad, a Belgian scale-up in hypergrowth, I built the HR strategy and processes from scratch. In one year time we grew from 47 to 138 employees. Crazy ride!

The entrepreneurial vibes were contagious and I started my own company: HR Design.

My dedicated HR experts support scale-ups in their growth journey, mostly for 2 to 3 days a week, for a period of 6 to 18 months.

This business is very close to my heart. But I had one frustration...

I received a lot of questions for HR support from scale-ups at an earlier stage of growth. But having a dedicated HR expert would explode their budget and would honestly be overshooting at that stage.

So I decided to put all my HR expertise into super practical HR scripts and templates, specifically designed for early stage scale-ups. This means you can build the right HR foundations and grow your team, even before you are ready to hire an HR Manager.

I hope they bring you a lot of value!
