Business, at its core, is human relationships
Better employees mean better business
Managing employees is also managing risk
3D HR Legal deals with a diverse range of businesses across Australia and regularly sees the effects of poorly managed employee performance and conduct in the workplace. Or the impact of an employee resigning and setting up in direct competition.
Employees are your number one asset.
They also have a lot of power and can do real damage to your business if not managed well
3D HR Legal deliver tailored solutions for YOUR business.
We don’t provide off-the-shelf documents
We provide individualised service by learning about your business, the quirks of your industry, how you operate, your employees and your values. We start from scratch and make sure that everything we do is tailored to suit your needs.
We work with both the employer and the employees so that all people in the business can work together to improve it.
We want to help you make your business the best it can be
I am 3D HR Legal’s Director, and I bring over 15 years of industry experience to your business. In addition to my law degree, I have completed a Commerce degree majoring in management and human resources and a Masters of Human Resources and Industrial Relations. I’ve come to understand that my varied education and work experience means I’m able to appreciate things from a different perspective.
Our approach is non-judgemental – we just want to see you move on and be able to make proactive changes for a better business.
Before specialising in employment law, I dabbled in other areas. In fact, at university, I believed I was going to be a high flying lawyer working on multi-million dollar deals all around the clock. Then I found employment law and realised that there was nothing more rewarding than working to improve a business by helping it develop and manage the best relationships possible with its key asset – its employees.
When I’m not practising law (my husband finds it hilarious that doctors and lawyers “practice”) I can be found podcasting on “The Juggle“, reading (lots of fantasy and crime novels), attending as many business related workshops and webinars as I can handle, dreaming about the travel I did pre-children, looking after my family and helping my husband as he builds our own “grand design”, one brick at a time.
