With a former background in hospitality and leadership, Thoralf is used to leading large scale projects, with the employees at the heart; strategising in people-centred cultures is where Thoralf thrives. His management of investigations, disciplinaries and appeals specialise, naturally, in human resources, including bullying and harassment, defamation of character, theft, performance and conduct. With Thoralf at the helm of an investigation, organisational change and people-centred service is guaranteed.
Originally from Germany, Thoralf lived and worked 16 years in London before moving to the Lake District in 2019. His background is luxury hotel management, with his most recent position as Hotel Manager where he managed 110 employees in a top 50 TripAdvisor establishment in central London. During his time in hotels, he influenced organisational change in terms of culture, elevation of service levels and strategically planning long term initiatives to excel in a very competitive marketplace, with people being at the centre.
During his time in London, Thoralf carried out multiple workplace assessments of competitors to identify areas of high and low performance and implement strategies in his own workplace to accelerate organisational learning and development.
He has experience in carrying out thorough investigations and conducting both disciplinaries and appeals covering a wide spectrum of cases including harassment, defamation of character, theft as well as performance and conduct related matters.
Thoralf is an accredited Workplace Investigator and is currently studying for his CIPD Diploma.
In his spare time, he enjoys kayaking in the beautiful Lake District, building furniture and being a climbing frame to his 3-year-old daughter.
