Kerry-Anne & Co was highly recommended to me by a local small business owner and I was not at all disappointed. Kerry-Anne is very approachable and a pleasure to work with. I felt confident in her professional knowledge, comfortable speaking with her about sensitive issues and was more than happy with the high quality of work delivered to set up our HR needs. Even though we now have our systems finalised, Kerry-Anne continues to be there for us to help out with any questions or concerns that have been raised since and made it very clear she is available for any back up support we require in the future. I will have no hesitation in recommending Kerry- Anne & Co to other organizations for their HR requirements. Thanks again for all your efforts Kerry-Anne.

I have recently worked with Kerry-Anne from Kerry-Anne & Co as a consultant for the HR needs in my business, Southside Clinic. Kerry-Anne was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish, offering a highly skilled, professional and knowledgeable experience. Kerry-Anne worked with me to update all my staff’s contracts, as well as developing 5 policies and procedures for my business: Enhancing Performance, Employee Leave, Dispute Resolution, Valuing our Differences and Health and Safety at Work. She also reviewed all my clinic handbooks and made sure they were in alignment with our policies and procedures. Kerry-Anne also worked with me on a checklist that I’ll be using for staff evaluations in the future, and again made sure this was in alignment with the rest of my HR documents. Kerry-Anne was encouraging of all my ideas and suggestions, and she made sure everything we wrote was correct for the current legislation for my industry. I have already recommended Kerry-Anne to numerous business colleagues as I was so impressed not only with her work, but also with her no-fuss, happy and professional approach. I will continue to recommend Kerry-Anne to anyone who requires HR assistance in the future.

Kerry-Anne has been supporting the Improvement Foundation for a number of years with our HR requirements. During this time, she has built solid relationships with individual staff and provided HR direction and advice to our management team. Kerry-Anne provides us with ongoing HR support, advice and consultancy from the basic HR requirements all the way through to dealing with more complex issues including organisational re-structuring and employee relation matters. Kerry-Anne is very approachable and consistently provides high quality work, advice and support. Working with Kerry-Anne & Co ensures we have someone to assist with ongoing HR requirements and when issues arise, we can get support either over the phone or face to face. I would highly recommend Kerry-Anne’s services to any organisation who needs HR support as she gets to know the organisation and its staff so she can provide a customised service to suit the organisation.
Sarah Powell - General Manager, The Improvement Foundation
In July last year I purchased a well-established Financial Planning business. With being a new business owner comes many trials and tribulations. Knowing my clients and providing professional quality advice comes natural to me, however learning to manage staff, do the HR, understand industrial relations was something completely foreign to me. Something I simply did not want to get wrong and nor did I have the time to spend hours reading through the legislation without it affecting other areas of my business. Our systems, procedures, reviews, employee handbook etc all needed a major overhaul, to come out of the dark ages and become the Plansure way.
Having received misinformation on a few matters from another source I was at a point where I needed to find someone who could understand my business and who I could trust implicitly. I thank my lucky stars that a very good girlfriend of mine referred Kerry-Anne to me. Kerry-Anne’s professionalism and knowledge is second to none. The intention of bringing Kerry-Anne into my business was not only to set the new foundations for us, however for this to become a long term relationship so that she gets to know and understand my team and so that my team get to know, rely and trust her. Kerry-Anne has sat with my staff, has presented to my staff and my view is for Kerry-Anne to take on the responsibility and conduct the bi-annual staff reviews. A week doesn’t go by now where I don’t email Kerry-Anne with something else to help with. I feel that my staff and I will gain a better outcome from this. Businesses can’t afford to not have a Kerry-Anne.
