Ask Yourself...

We’re flexible and experienced enough to offer something for all sized businesses: small, medium and large.

Small business without a dedicated HR professional: you’d know there is employment legislation specific to businesses with fewer than 15 employees. We can show you the employment documents, structures and strategies that best match your small business needs, why you need these and how to get you started. You might be surprised at just how easy getting your HR system up to professional standard really is!

Medium sized business with a single HR professional or small HR team: this person may require occasional assistance or mentoring to develop their confidence and capability. Who better than someone who’s worked at HR Manager level across a variety of industries and sectors:  been there, done that and done it successfully? You’ll recoup your original investment over and over.

Large business with a dedicated HR team requiring skilled assistance in times of peak workload: human resources, employee relations, industrial relations policy review, volume recruitment, leave coverage, organisational restructures, employee satisfaction surveys, special projects, downsizing…we can work within your existing processes as well as offering experienced suggestions on how to tackle your HR project.

Not 100% aware of how a HR expert can improve your business? Contact us today to enquire.

More business through better performing and motivated employees. Peace of mind knowing your HR function is up to date and will operate seamlessly behind the scenes while you grow your business.

We can help you develop a HR structure that improves employee productivity, minimises risk, prevents costly mistakes from happening and, on the odd occasion one does, help navigate you through this. And it’s probably less drama and at a lower cost than you think.

You wouldn’t trust your business finances to an Accountant without relevant experience and qualifications…why would you not do similar checks and balances on someone coming into your business to work with your most valuable asset? Ask your HR Consultant these questions:

  • Have you actually worked as a Human Resources Manager?
  • How long ago was this?
  • In what industries have you worked?
  • Do you have tertiary qualifications in Human Resources?

Greg Bowmer is an experienced Human Resources Manager with tertiary qualifications in HR Management and Industrial Relations. Greg’s human resources experience spans 20 years across corporate, blue collar and fly-in fly-out workplaces, taking his first HR Manager role in 2004 and following with senior experience across industries as diverse as Hospitality, IT, Healthcare Sales, Oil and Gas, Mining, Construction and Manufacturing. If you’re seeking a Consultant with genuine HR management level experience who knows how to implement systems to add value to your business, Bare Bones Consulting is the logical choice.
