Client testimonials

We have been providing HR services to clients for over 25 years and have many long standing relationships that we have built up over the years. As well as new clients that also love the work we do for them. See below for just a few reflections on the benefits they see from working with us.


 “We have worked with Positive People for more than fifteen years and during that time, Positive People have been an invaluable resource for our company. They have helped ETEL to shape our Vision and Values, and they have worked with our own internal teams to bring a collaborative, cross functional, performance based approach to our business. Positive People continually support our people and culture within our business and there have been many initiatives and improvements instigated by them; all tailored specifically to our business. We really do believe in them and treat Positive People as an important part of the ETEL family.”

CEO – SPM Assets

“Being able to have an experienced HR professional to be embedded as one of our team, has made a significant difference to our business over the past year. For Positive People to attract such high calibre HR people to offer in this flexible way, is the perfect business model that really works for us.”

Manager – ASCO Asphalt

“Positive People continue to provide a professional, responsive and accurate service to our company that enables us to achieve our objectives.”

Manager – Ardmore Nurseries

“Positive People provided us with excellent value in fine tuning our Performance Planning process. Our Consultant was very down to earth and relatable for our staff, and was very conscious of not taking up too much of their time. More than ever before our staff are clear on their goals for the month and year, and are motivated through an incentive program that is better aligned to these goals. It was certainly time and money well spent for us.”

Human Resources Manager – Competenz

Great session with Positive People today! Three people in our team needed an update/refresher on Organisational Design before we head into a period of change and our HR Consultant delivered just what was needed. She was thoughtful, practical and considerate of the different amounts of experience in the room. Her information and approach was on-point and we came away feeling much more confident about the work ahead of us. Thanks Positive People!

Managing Director – MoaTrek

MoaTrek started working with Positive People in mid 2020 in the height of the pandemic. During the time we have worked together Positive People has provided many tools to effectively recruit, train, develop and keep our team members motivated through a very challenging time. Key to this was the development of an HR Plan that clearly and simply mapped out MoaTrek’s people and culture priorities and steps to execute these priorities. MoaTrek is now over 2 years into this project and is reaping the rewards in terms of having what I personally believe is the best team in the New Zealand tourism industry.
