HR Services


HR Meeting

At McDonaldHR we work with companies that are really good at what they do. They have often grown through the vision of a single business owner or a team of like-minded people who had the drive, skills and knowledge to succeed in business.

Sometimes however as businesses grow, such companies need employees, and managing the needs and issues that go with having a workforce is a skill set that most small business to medium business owners don’t have or simply don’t have time for. Add to that the ever-changing legislation, regulations, and compliance requirements as well as the changing expectations of employees and of course the low unemployment rate in New Zealand, many business soon realise they can’t do it all and need specialist HR support.

At McDonaldHR, we are here to work with you and for you by supporting you with the human resource needs of your business and your employees. We can be as involved as you wish from acting as a consultant when issues arise, to helping with recruitment, setting up robust systems and processes, or as most of our clients prefer, working with as an independent part of your team.

The services we offer are comprehensive; there is a list of key services below, however but if you have a specific need, issue or idea you want to explore, please call us.

Employment Services

The first key area of our work with clients is the development of effective systems and processes within businesses; this includes but is not limited to policies and forms, Employment Agreements and employee and payroll forms, sickness and performance management processes and guidelines.  These may seem simple and obvious things to have, but having a system and a good set of tools mitigates not only your risk but also provides you with resources you can use over and over again once they are set up streamlining your workload.  Other employment-related services include:

  • Recruitment and induction
  • Leadership development and coaching
  • Conflict resolution
  • Disciplinary investigations
  • Change management – restructuring processes
  • Managing bullying and harassment issues inlcuding facilitating employee and manager training
  • Managing  grievance processes
  • Managing performance improvement processes
  • Handling disciplinary and dismissal processes
  • Undertaking HBDI psychometric testing and workshops (individual and team development tool

If you would like to know more or have a specific employment issue you would like to discuss, please call or email us today. All enquires are handled discreetly and in the strictest confidence.

Health and Safety

A second key area in which we help our clients is the ever-growing complexity of Health and Safety legislation and implementation. It seems like a week doesn’t pass that a new act or regulation is enforced in the area of Health and Safety at work.

We work with clients to help them to comply with the needs and the implications of the Health and Safety legislation to ensure they are protected and that their employees are able to work effectively in a safe environment.

As with our employment services we can be as engaged as you wish, if you simply need help setting up a health and safety system we can help with that, or, if  you need a partner to work with to design, implement and manage your ongoing health and safety needs we can help with this too.

If you would like to know more about our health and safety services please call for an obligation free chat and we can discuss your needs and formulate how we can help you.

Client Base

We work with companies that range in size from one employee through to our largest current client with a 750-employees.  We work throughout New Zealand and are available at times to suit you. We have no problem with early morning, late night or weekend calls, after all, if a problem is keeping you up at night it is probably time to do something about it, we can help.
