If we successfully find a suitable match for you, your business will be charged a "one off" placement fee after the employee has remained with your business for 28 days.

We can provide the Venue, Facilitator, Resources, Presentation Equipment and even the Catering to form a cost-effective "peace of mind" package.

If you are looking for a more "Activity Based" team building experience we can organise this for you too!! The options are endless, so just talk to us about what you want to achieve and we will put something exciting together to suit your needs and your budget.

These activities are so much fun, your staff will be talking about it for weeks!

Human Resource Management

If you employ staff then it is very important to have sound Human Resource systems in place to protect your business and your staff.

With regular changes to the laws that relate to employing staff, it is equally important that your systems comply with these changes.

Whether your business or organisation is large or small, commercial or non-profit we can assist you to put together a Human Resource System that suits you! Working with you, we can help to develop Systems, Processes and Manuals that ensure that you meet your "good employer" obligations and comply with the relevant employment - related legislation. Once this is completed we are also able to assist with staff training if required.

Services for Staff Effected by Redundancy

With the state of the world economy at present, we are already starting to see an impact on businesses in New Zealand in terms of increased unemployment and redundancy. As business Owners and Employers, some of us are faced with the unfortunate reality of having to make staff redundant during this hard time.

Among this "doom and gloom" however, there is the opportunity to salvage something for your departing staff to assist them to find a new job or embark on a new career.

Why not call on our skilled Consultants to help out! We are experts in providing advice and guidance in all aspects of the Employment industry.

We can provide "one on one" personalised sessions to assist with things such as CV preparation, Career Guidance or Employment Coaching or deliver group workshops in Job Searching Techniques and Job Interview Skills. All services can be delivered from our office or your workplace as deemed suitable. In terms of cost, we guarantee value for money, however how do you put a price on "caring about your staff's future".
