HR associate works with some amazing NZ businesses in various industries and locations to deliver on their people and HR needs, and here are a few of those businesses.


"I met Karyn McDonald at a Learning Wave seminar on Diversity and Inclusion and we discussed the need for Cure Kids to leverage an independent HR resource with whom colleagues could reach out to for objective support. The support Karyn provides has been a real asset to our culture in providing a safe environment for advice and support, for colleagues and managers. In addition HR associate has supported us with exit interviews and senior management coaching. As a charity, while we would not be able to afford a full time HR resource, having the flexibility to dip in and out of HR associate’s services as we need them is an enormous benefit to our organisation" - Frances Benge, CEO

what our clients are saying about HR associate

“Recruitment… a dispute in the workplace… inappropriate behaviour… or positive stuff like team building or developing a culture – HR associate is just a call away.  Prompt and supportive with opinions that provide the bedrock of our HR programme.  With a consistent smile, you always know the right thing to say. Thank you Karyn and the team at HR associate”. - Directors, Kpac

“Having used HR associate’s services, I found Karyn to be very professional, caring and supportive. Karyn is very knowledgeable in her field and works with extreme integrity; I would highly recommend her”. - Practice Manager, North Shore
