Our Testimonials

Appletree Designs – Interior Design, Home Styling & Bespoke Timber Kitchens
My business was starting to grow and employing someone was on my mind.  The easy thing to do would have been to hire one of the many friends that kept offering their services.  Then I met Melanie from OurHR.  She opened my eyes to the legal issues and implications around hiring and the importance of protecting myself and my business first and foremost.

Melanie helped throughout the entire recruitment process, she assessed my staffing needs, helped interview and drew up an employment agreement for me.  I am extremely happy with the outcome.

“OurHR is a big part of my business team, contributing to my success.”

Melanie is extremely professional in her approach and has continued to provide follow up and ongoing services.  I would highly recommend OurHR for any of the people parts of your business

PartyPerfect – Catering and Event Planning 
As a small business, OurHR has empowered us by helping to ensure that the processes we use are legal and current.   OurHR made an effort to learn about our business so that our policies, procedures and contracts are customised to our needs.  It’s almost like having our own HR department!

“OurHR helps us to focus on what we do best rather than having to attempt to do the HR part of the business.”

OurHR is quick, effective and very affordable.

Island Bay Childcare/Johnsonville Childcare
As the owner of two Early Childhood Centres in Wellington I can be faced with staff issues that need sensitive handling.  Melanie understands this and brings with it her years of HR knowledge and experience which results in positive and suitable outcomes for our business.

“I can be faced with staff issues that need sensitive handling.  Melanie understands this”

She has a wonderful ability to see through the issues and find solutions, while supporting and educating my Team Leaders so that they can then deal with general HR issues themselves.  I would thoroughly recommend Melanie.

Her ability to find solutions to my people issues, which can be complex, means she is a vital asset to my business. She is my ‘go to’ person for all my staff matters.

She treats my business as if it is her own – she is always mindful of its reputation, professional conduct and market presence.
