Akyra has been efficient and proactive in working with us to review our senior position descriptions and benchmarking those roles against the marketplace.

Embrace Life

We have been working with Margaret Goody from Akyra for almost 2 years now and I find the relationship invaluable. As a small business that has grown into a medium size business, we have faced many challenges getting our HR strategies, policies and procedures right. We have the Akyra services on monthly retainer and have utilised their policy and procedure manuals to ensure we meet industry and fair work standards. Margaret has worked closely with our practice manager and knowing we have her to gleam information from whenever we need it is really reassuring. Not sure what we would do without her now!

MS Queensland

Thank you Akyra for your assistance with our Workforce Planning project. As a result of collaborating with Akyra, we have developed a Workforce Plan that will support our Strategic Plan and ensure we have a flexible and capable workforce that can meet our future service requirements. Specific outcomes of the project included forecasting future workforce requirements for the next 3 years, identifying critical workforce barriers and gaps, and developing a plan to address priority workforce needs. In fact, all recommendations proposed by Akyra were endorsed by our Executive Leadership Team and incorporated into the implementation plan.

Lastly, I’d like to acknowledge the support that Margaret gave me throughout the project. Margaret was very professional and consultative. Her approach was structured and planned and everything I requested was followed up and delivered. I truly valued Margaret’s wealth of knowledge and experience.
