HR Projects across the employment life cycle

Our talent specialists are HR professionals who love to help you find great employees. We are not a recruitment agency which means we don’t charge a placement fee based on the salary package. Instead we offer an “outsourced internal recruiter” service where you only pay for what you need, on an hourly rate basis. Be it advertising, shortlisting, phone screening, providing feedback to candidates, reference checks, organising and interpreting pre-employment testing, putting together the offer paperwork or all of the above!

Workplace investigations
We conduct fact-finding investigations following your policies if you have received a complaint in relation to inappropriate conduct, harassment, bullying or discrimination.

Whether you are looking for position descriptions with career paths, a succession planning process, targeted leadership coaching, a cost effective development program , a system to empower your managers to develop their teams, or a development framework to help engage and retain top performers, we can help.

Engagement surveys, focus groups, internal communication plans, contemporary policies, employee benefit programs, remuneration strategies, incentive programs and more. We will help design and implement what is going to best drive engagement and retain great employees in your business.

We can provide advice regarding the best ways to separate when performance standards are not being met, or if your business needs to restructure and make roles redundant we can help you through the process. We also have career transition specialists who can provide coaching and support to the exiting employees.

My Story

Karen Kirton

Karen Kirton

Founder & Managing Director

When I first entered the workforce I was 17 and just finished my HSC with no idea what I wanted to do. I became an administrator, a debt collector, a sales person, and even a web designer before I joined an organisation that had a new HRM. I was able to join his team as an “Office Manager” and for the first time I got to see behind the curtain. The difference that great HR practices can make and how empowered teams can impact on culture and the success of the business. I found my purpose and  completed a degree in Business, majoring in HR Management and later a post graduate degree in Psychology.

The challenge of course is that HR can often be seen as the policy police, or department of no… and in many ways this comes back to the fact that the HR Manager may have a degree, but they also have a mishmash of principles and philosophies and ideas. And as a HRM that is meant to advise and coach leaders, it is quite possible they have never led a team themselves before.

So over time I started to build a simple methodology that has enabled us to improve teams’ performance and culture so that organisations can reduce their staff turnover, get better productivity and keep and grow highly skilled employees.

I’ve been a Senior Leader. Managing a team of over 20 HR Professionals within a large Company  I experienced all the frustrations that can come with people management!

I’m a business owner. So I live everyday the challenges of running a business and being able to get the right people and the right outsourced partners.

I believe in creating workplaces that engage and inspire.

Having over 20 years of experience in HR and Degrees in Business and Psychology, I am driven to create great workplace cultures in simple and practical ways, especially for teams with under 100 employees.
