Who are PeakHR?

Are you spending too much time dealing with staff issues rather than growing your business?
You've come to the right place.
Using over 20 years of experience, we work with you to ensure that staff issues are quickly and efficiently managed for the best outcome for the business.
We recognise that not all businesses have the need for a full time, in house HR team.  That's where the services of a consultant can really benefit you, fulfilling your HR requirements on an 'as needed' basis.
We will spend time getting to know your business, its culture and values, your staff and your business and human resource objectives.
