Amplify HR is for you if…

> Having a great workplace culture is important to you.

You understand the value of an AMAZING workplace culture, but also know that with a great, or terrible hire, it can change quickly and needs continual cultivation.

> Your business growth is reliant on finding & keeping great people.

Paradoxically, the more people you have, the more complex and time consuming your business becomes, actually reducing your ability to grow and thrive if you don’t get the right kind of help.

> You feel like there’s got to be a better way!

Perhaps you have tried consultants in the past, or you’ve tried to manage it all yourself but it is just getting a bit much. You know there are HR gaps but you don’t have the time or knowledge to get proactive.

What other business owners and leaders like you say….

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

We don’t like long lock-in contracts either!

Our plans have a minimum term of only 6 months.

We are confident you will see immediate value, but with our Alliance and Accelerate plans, if you’re not completely satisfied just let us know within 30 days and you can walk away with no break fees or hidden costs.

You can upgrade at any time, and to downgrade you just need to have had a minimum term of 6 months on your current plan.

The easiest way is to jump on a quick call with Karen who will ask you a few questions and within 15 minutes will be able to advise you of the best option to get the outcomes you need.

Partnering with our clients is important to us – we aren’t a transactional service provider.

This means we need to have the time to really get to know your business when you first start and we dive into your compliance and current HR practices,.

For this reason we limit the number of new clients we take each month, but if you have an urgent issue we can help you with some emergency HR advice to get you sorted in the meantime.

We have a list of masterclasses for the year which we provide in advance to our clients so you can pre-register.

Masterclasses are held on the last Tuesday of every month via Zoom, and we send reminders each month so you can always be sure to know what is coming up.

It really depends on the complexity of the issue, but as a guide most questions take 30 minutes or less meaning that on the Foundations plan you’d be able to make an average of 4 calls/emails per month.

    Examples of how other businesses use on-demand support with the Foundations plan:

  • Which Modern Award covers our new employee?
  • Should we be providing paid sick leave instead of annual leave if someone is sick while on holiday?
  • What process do we take to make a role redundant?
  • A job candidate has let me know she is pregnant. What should I do?
  • An employee has asked for a meal allowance. Do we need to pay it?
  • What happens if an employee refuses to work out their notice period?
  • I’ve received a bullying complaint and I’m not sure what to do next.
  • What are the right steps to take when performance managing an employee?
  • How do we set KPIs for roles to receive a bonus?

We provide flexibility with your monthly hours by tracking them quarterly so you can use a bit more this month, and a bit less next month. But if you need to, you can purchase additional hours.

Absolutely. We leave this up to each individual business, but we find that employees love it when they know they have a HR group supporting them. It makes them feel that the business cares about them as people and is looking to create a great place to work!

With the Accelerate plan you can use up to 7 hours (1 day) of your included HR support for on-site support each month.

If you require someone on site on the Foundations or Alliance plans (e.g. a performance management meeting) there will be an additional fee and travel costs.

Our office looks over Sydney from Level 49 at Parramatta Square, but we work flexibly so we aren’t there every day, and not all of us work from the office!

Although Sydney based, we also support businesses in Canberra, Melbourne and Brisbane.

This is our learning portal so you can go step-by-step through our Find Grow Keep methodology so you can build a great place to work.

Provided with our Alliance and Accelerate plans it includes over 4 hours of downloadable content – 19 videos across 4 modules, covering Foundations, Find, Grow and Keep.

Although we hold professional indemnity insurance, we do not provide you with legal insurance / protection against employee claims.

We work with clients that believe in creating a great place to work which means that claims are much less likely! We also think it is much better value for you to pay for legal advice in the unlikely circumstances where you need a lawyer, rather than paying higher fees to us for a long period to cover the insurance costs.

No, but we partner with employment lawyers to provide our employment contracts and documentation and can refer you to great lawyers in the unlikely event that you need to get specific legal advice.

No credit card required.

Once we have a service agreement signed you can opt for monthly direct debit or quarterly payment via invoice.

We partner with Employment Hero and your HR partner can be given access to be able to build any HR processes (e.g. performance reviews) into the system and run reports. We can also be given access to other platforms, but we may not be as familiar with them!

Once we kick off we will discuss with you your objectives and how you would like to work with us including a plan for the first 3 months.

Some clients like to have monthly meetings, others prefer to just contact us as needed. Whichever works for you, we will still be monitoring your usage and letting you know at set intervals how you have been using our services and options for getting the most out of your plan.
