Catherine Stapleton: Principal HR Consultant

Catherine is focused on providing affordable, fit-for-purpose solutions to HR and employment problems.

If you have a payroll or HR process not going smoothly, a team that needs re-organising, an incident that needs investigating or pay review you need outside input on, Catherine’s eyes are likely to light up. She loves getting into a business with the goal of improving the team’s effectiveness and your bottom line. If you’re suffering from growing pains, have a team needing support or would like to step back from the business, Catherine’s the one to talk to.

You won’t find any cookie-cutter templates or manuals here, because they don’t have the human touch that’s needed to engage the other person. And it’s little things like that, like a tailored letter or a personalised note, which add value and enhance relationships.

And that’s really what being an HR consultant is about – growing a particular type of relationship. So all the solutions and recommendations Catherine provides are objective, but relationship-oriented.

Outside work, Catherine and her family are actively involved in Te Awamutu community sport.  Before HR found her, Catherine started her tertiary training in sport business and as a successful amateur athlete in rowing, netball and rugby, she’s well versed in what it takes to achieve success, challenge personal boundaries and teamwork.
