Deborah was introduced to me by a colleague at a networking event. At the time I didn't have a HR person in the business and I had no reason to change.
Deborah really opened my eyes as to how having an HR person in the business would not only mitigate some risk but would make it a happier more efficient business. Four months in and I am a convert. Her no nonsense and pragmatic approach to HR has made a great difference.
It's amazing what she's able to achieve in her two half days a week as our HR Consultant Partner. Her presence has definitely affected the level of engagement positively, and she's been of great support to me.

We have been using the HR Staff Systems Software for 4 years now and we love it! It has really helped us streamline all of our HR administration.
We love that we can quickly and easily create a new employment contract or position description using the templates and wizards and the way it automatically sends us reminders of key dates is excellent.
The Staff Systems software has truly taken the headache out of HR administration and process for us. I highly recommend the system and the HR Stuff n' Stuff team.

Being a small growing company, it is sometimes hard to set-up, establish even keep on top of the ever-changing day to day running of a business, especially when it comes to Human Resources and Training.
HR Staff n' Stuff has provided our company with valuable HR support and information at our fingertips which has enabled the business to continue to grow knowing we are doing the right thing for our business and our staff.
From assisting us with the implementation of workplace policies and procedures to running valuable training sessions with our staff, we have found HR Staff n' stuff to be an essential part of our business and would highly recommend them.
Training sessions with our staff are always one to look forward to. Deborah has a natural ability to train in selling techniques, salesperson etiquette which always has a positive impact on our results and is met with rave reviews from our staff.

As a business owner I found the content of your HR course 'Hire, Fire, Manage', immediately useful. Your wealth of experience and ability to focus on clear and reasonable communication enabled me to take a fresh look at how I manage my staff.
I have improved my working relationships within my business, and have set clear expectations with employees which has improved our bottom line. Key personnel who also attended have seen positive outcomes.
I like the fact that quite different personalities and thinkers get the message that HR relates directly to performance, and needs to be managed fairly and clearly.
I gained great benefit from a relatively short investment of time that has giving me great value.

Deb is a standout. She is passionate, engaging, smart, driven, dedicated and delivers. She is also a magnificent person, with strong values, ethics and a need to make a difference in what she does. Deb gets results.
Thank goodness for Deb Peppard! She's a fountain of knowledge of all things HR. We discovered Deb at a time when our business needed some professional direction from an experienced HR coach.
Deb’s expertise guaranteed that we avoided any nasty surprises that come with managing a difficult employee. She also helped us create and write our policies and procedures, something that we would never have accomplished on our own.
We continue to call on Deb to assist us with our business as she fills the gap in our HR expertise.
Dina and Deb have been a terrific help in the expansion of our business into Sydney. We needed incremental sales staff to be employed along with an admin team. Dina phone screened all appropriate candidates and narrowed down a shortlist for formal interviews. These interviews were done in a professional and timely manner to work in sync with our grand openings. I would like to thank HR Adviser Dina, for her time and would recommend HR Staff n’ Stuff's HR services to other retail businesses looking to employ new staff or restructure their business for the future.
Deborah Peppard has run workshops for us since 2008. Her speciality and experience in HR consulting and advice, have made her workshops very valuable to the local businesses who have attended the workshops.
Her fantastic presentation skills have also come in handy for our Women's Business Network events, where Deborah has presented on two separate occasions on Time Management and networking.

I’ve worked with Deb Peppard on many projects and have never failed to be impressed by her energy, skills and passion at empowering people to achieve great results. Her commitment and integrity are absolute.
I first met Deb though my attendance of an industry-sponsored seminar. Deb was one of a number of keynote speakers at one of the sessions, but resonated most with me. She delivered her address in such a knowledgeable, engaging and enthusiastic manner, I felt compelled to call her afterwards.
Deb conducted a systematic process of analyzing our existing HR systems and OH&S protocols, highlighting our obligations, responsibilities and deficiencies across our specific business operations.
Having now completed this process, I am further convinced of my decision to commission Deb to assist us. Not only are we a much improved organisation, but are now prepared for any contingency. The improvements we've made is testimony to Deb's unique ability to engage and encourage everyone she works with.
It's been a pleasure to have her work within our environment over the past months. I unreservedly recommend her services to any organisation seeking to improve their business operations.

As a Business Administrator for a mid size company, meeting and work with Deb from HR Staff n' Stuff has been a great experience.
Her business acumen in so many areas, has been a fantastic asset and helped us in many varied situations. We do have a requirement of a HR Manager, but do not have the need for a full time position - HR Staff n' Stuff is the perfect solution. They're a HR consultancy with a difference.
I have no hesitation in recommending Deb and her HR team.

I cannot rate Deborah Peppard from HR Coach highly enough. I have found her HR services to be of the highest level and she has always exceeded my expectations every time. I have found her understanding of employee relations to be excellent and she is always passionate, friendly and professional.
Working with Deborah has made a big difference in our recruitment procedures and the way we now interview and relate with all of our staff has had a huge effect.
Deborah’s weekly email burst with useful information is another display of her commitment to excellence.
