Restructuring a business can be a challenge as the whole process needs to be coordinated to ensure compliance to the ever evolving HR space. Melony provided a coordinated and structured approach. I really liked that she was timely about the delivery of agreed outcomes whether it was documentation or scheduling follow up meetings. Good outcome. No PG's lodged either during or after the process.

Melony did my redundancy. She was to the point, and I liked that most. She gave me confidence and a better understanding. She gave me a 'birds eye view' of all the drivers, and she guided me through the process. It was a fair outcome.

Our HR case was difficult. For Melony it was all in a day's work. She brought structure to the investigation, and not only did she make sure the process was followed, she made sure we knew the laws. Her clear understanding made sure we got a good result.

Melony is a great help, someone that you can rely on when you really need her. Her time management skills means that although she has a lot on her plate she always has time to 'fit us in'. She took the bull by the horns on a recent HR issue we had. She did a lot of the background work for us and gathered the facts.
