You have a bit of repetition (Krystyna, me, and inform) which makes the sentence wordy.  She informed you that she could not inform you.  There are several pieces of information here. 

 

  • She called you on Friday.
  • She didn't have the information you wanted.
  • There is an HR person responsible for making the decision.
  • The HR person could not be reached.

 

That's a lot of information for one sentence.

 

Krystyna called me on Friday, but didn't have the information.  She was unable to reach the HR employee who is responsible for the decision.
