Progress HR, a forerunner in HR excellence led by Managing Director Claire Bond, has announced an exciting partnership with Open Road Learning, a global provider of people development solutions, to deliver highly interactive and effective HR training to organisations across the UK.

With over two decades of unparalleled HR expertise, Progress HR has consistently delivered renowned support to businesses across the UK. Under Claire Bond’s leadership, known for her robust employee relations and trade union experience, Progress HR specialises in offering fractional HR Director support to SMEs and discrete project-based assistance to businesses navigating HR challenges.

The collaboration between Progress HR and Open Road Learning marks the joining together of two industry experts who have shared a professional relationship for over two decades.
