Chief People Officer / Managing Director, DOHR Limited
Donna Obstfeld has had a career in HR and Management for over 25 years. Having graduated with a degree in Business and Psychology, Donna discovered HR and started her career travelling round the country recruiting school leavers and graduates for Dixons Stores Group.
Very much an HR Generalist, Donna’s employed career spanned retail, transport, education, prisons and management consultancy before setting up a one stop shop HR Practice, DOHR in 2007.
Today DOHR supports over 500 SME clients across the UK. The Company’s mission is to ‘make the workplace a better place to be’ and that is not only for the business owner and managers, but for the employees as well. Donna believes that people spend too much of their time at work not to enjoy what they are doing.
She regularly takes local students for work experience, prepares students for interviews and has been a Young Enterprise Business Advisor for her daughter’s school for the last 6 years.
Donna is a proud member of BNI, a qualified mediator and a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
Her favourite colour is purple, and to many, she is the purple HR lady!
