Recently our firm was faced with the difficult process of restructure. This meant we needed to make valued employees redundant. In order to ensure we offered them the most fair and equitable package for their departure, we engaged the services of Leonie Green. Leonie was not only extremely knowledgeable about the appropriate Acts and technical requirements but she was down to earth and provided practical solutions to our challenges. Throughout the process she was accessible at all time and very responsive. He manner was professional and respectful, and she was always punctual and kept the timelines she promised. With Leonie’s assistance the firm was able to meet with its employees armed with the correct legal and practical advice, which resulted in a positive outcome for all concerned. I would have no hesitation in using Leonie’s services again or recommend her to anyone requiring HR assistance.

We engaged Leonie Green from Conscious Workplace to assist us with a complicated and sensitive workplace issue just recently. We were impressed with Leonie’s knowledge of employment law and employee/industrial relations, her ability to dissect the issue and bring obvious industry experience to help us navigate through a tricky problem. What we appreciated most about working with Leonie was her responsiveness, professionalism and ultimately Leonie’s understanding of how best to deal with a complex HR issue.

As we have grown, one of our challenges has been Human Resource management and the continual changes in legislation. Both of which are a minefield for business like ours. We have grappled with the challenges in this arena for a number of years. Our recent decision to engage Conscious Workplace on a contract basis to consult on HR matters has been one of the best decisions we have made.
In particular we have been impressed with Leonie's no nonsense, straight forward and pragmatic view on HR issues. She has been able to identify the most expedient and equitable course of action on all of the matters that have been referred to her.
Managing challenging and often sensitive HR matters requires skill, compassion and a detailed knowledge of legislation. The advice Leonie provided for the matters referred to her, illustrates that she has an excellent knowledge of legal requirements tempered with a sense of fair play to ensure an equitable outcome for the parties involved.
The time Leonie took to understand the Ebix culture and history was also important to us as it ensured that her recommendations were in line with our corporate objectives.

I initially engaged Leonie to assist me with a single human resource matter and within weeks Leonie has become a valued resource consulting across our entire HR function.
Since partnering with Leonie I have seen a considerable reduction in legal fees and even the need for lawyers as now I feel completely supported through the HR minefield.
Leonie’s practical but creative approach combined with her legal and industrial relations background has been invaluable to our business in the development of our HR and people strategies.
