Paulette was such a great help in getting me started in hiring my first employee. She created all the required documents I needed and also researched all the required information, especially for paying the correct award wage in my industry. I would recommend Fresh HR Insights to anyone. October 2020
I cannot recommend Paulette from Fresh HR Insights enough. I found Fresh HR Insights through recommendation when I found myself seeking guidance and advice with a, particularly complex Employee situation. Paulette jumped straight on board not only to offer guidance but to represent my Company during the proceedings. The stress she alleviated from me personally was immensely appreciated. Since then we now have our own HR Specialist in her, onboard as needed but not on the proverbial weekly payroll. Her guidance has helped me reform and provides a brilliant structure for every aspect of our HR Relations. Her knowledge is second to none, her business model and values up there with the best and tasks are completed on budget and on time. July 2020
Marine Farm Management Limited are a small New Zealand company that required redundancy advise during the Covid19 national emergency. Paulette provided support and information at a time when there was great uncertainty and stress for a small business. Paulette was efficient and easy to do business with. We really appreciated her support at this time.
It was the right choice for Motzky to engage with Fresh HR Insights Pty Ltd. Paulette drafted a new employee contract for us and supplied the contract with associated documentation to be make sure:
- we recruit in accordance with the law,
- the person being employed can actually read and understand the contract,
- it protects Motzky from a risk of an employee wrongdoing,
- it enhaces the professional image of Motzky.
We recommend Fresh HR Insights Pty Ltd and we are sure to get back for more when the time will come… March 2020

Paulette McCormack from Fresh HR Insights Pty Ltd worked with us to create a contract of employment and an employee handbook.

Willing to go above and beyond normal practice to ensure we were compliant, Paulette’s timely advice and availability to assist whenever needed has made us grateful to have had the assistance of Paulette and Fresh HR Insights in this matter.

“Paulette has been working as a Human Resource Consultant at Zacpac (Australasia) Pty Ltd from June 2013 under a 12 month contract. She was brought into the business to underpin the Human Resource department to ensure compliance with legislation whilst also providing support to our HR person whilst she gained her Cert IV in Human Resource Management. Over these 12 months I have found Paulette to have an extensive array of knowledge in Human Resources and although she had not worked in the manufacturing sector or within a family owned business before she adapted to the environment. When requested to create documents, return a call or help with processes she always did so in a timely manner. Paulette brought a realistic approach to her advice ‚ ¨ although she is highly trained and academic she successfully balances theory, best practice and legislation to the best fit for the business. I worked with Paulette on a couple of sensitive workplace issues that needed precise execution to achieve the desired outcome for the business and Paulette achieved this with professionalism, expertise and maintained a high level of confidentially. Her manner in meetings is fair, consistent and firm whilst also having an uncanny way of getting people to open up and trust in her. Paulette never let us down in her weekly journey from the Gold Coast to our Ingleburn factory. I can say without doubt that her dedication commitment to her contract never failed. Please contact me on 0417 686 584 should you wish to discuss this further.”
“I have worked closely with Paulette McCormack of Fresh HR Insights, for the past few months as a provider of an online training system. Paulette has been working with Zacpac (Australasia) to bring all their HR Policies and Procedures and Workplace Health and Safety training from their current face to face power point delivery to our online platform, OTrain. Her knowledge in WHS and HR has helped Paulette produce some fantastic online training units that are comprehensive and contextualize the information into the reality. Paulette has managed to create logical questioning in the quizzes to ensure understanding while maintaining the safety obligations. Paulette, prior to our agreement as preferred supplier of the online platform, had not worked with our system. I have been impressed with her ability to quickly pick up the system whilst also fulfilling Zacpac’s needs and creating some super online training programs.”
“Paulette is a highly professional Human Resources Manager who, with a keen eye to the bottom line, is one of those rare individuals who is able to produce win-win‚ π positions for her own company, partners and employees alike. Highly recommended”
“Paulette is dedicated to her job. She is an efficient partner and she always develops a HR concrete/practical approach. She is really committed and a highly valued executive in the UK team. She has enough experience to run a HR team in an ambitious firm. Paulette is a reliable and trustworthy person. I recommend her.”
“Paulette is highly passionate about Human Resource Management and providing HR solutions for her clients. She is also very knowledgeable in this area and has been able to assist us with our clients. Working with Paulette has been very easy and we are pleased to state that her business, Fresh HR Insights has partnered with NEW Point Recruitment to be our service provider for HR and payroll services.”
“I have worked closely with Paulette McCormack of Fresh HR Insights, over a period of 12 months, since she came to work at Zacpac (Australasia), at Ingleburn NSW, as HR Contractor. I contract with this company, focusing on work health and safety, as well as training. Our roles cross over on a regular basis. It was quickly apparent to me that Paulette has substantial knowledge and ability within her field. Her interpersonal skills have been used to much success by Zacpac (Australasia) Pty Ltd. Paulette has also been training one of the staff to eventually fulfil the role of HR and WHS Manager. My discussions with that person have reinforced my opinion that Paulette is very competent over a wide range of skill sets.”
“Burdened by a wide range of issues in starting and running a business, FHRI helped ensure our compliance with workplace laws. There’s nothing better than the feeling that you’re starting off on the right track and that we can concentrate on our core business: keeping our patients healthy.”
“Paulette supplied to our office the contracts for our new employee which took all of the stress away from us ensuring we had everything in order. She explains everything in a way that Business owners understand, not in her own industry jargon. She is an expert in her field and I would not hesitate to recommend Paulette to anybody considering using her services.”

I had the pleasure of working with Paulette from Fresh HR Insights in recruiting
“Paulette has been working for me as a Human Resource Consultant at Zacpac Australasia Pty Ltd for the past 12 months. Paulette was brought into the business to underpin the Human Resource department to ensure compliance with legislation and the Workplace Health and safety whilst also providing support to Kylie whilst she gains her Cert IV in Human Resource Management. Over the past 12 months I have noticed an increase in the confidence and knowledge that Kylie has in her role and have seen first-hand that Paulette’s realistic approach to her teaching certainly benefit her and the business. She is pragmatic about applying theory to real life situations and always uses her work experience to explain her teaching to Kylie. I have found Paulette to have an extensive array of knowledge in both HR and WHS and although she had not worked in the Manufacturing sector or within a family owned business before she adjusted to the environment. Paulette made a journey from the Gold Coast to Sydney one day every week. She never let us down and I can say without doubt that her dedication commitment to her contract never failed.”
Amazing service and very knowledgable. I recommend Fresh HR Insights to every small business and not only! November 2016
Our company employs 10+ staff and we had been in desperate need of help in regards to all of our employment records, procedures and WHS policies. Paulette and her team were able to get into action quickly. The immediate peace of mind knowing that we had up to date and relevant employment contracts and policies took a lot of stress off me. I could sleep soundly at night again.
The most important part for me is the ability to contact the companies that you sub contract work out to. Paulette is always available to help out and if you leave a message it is replied to in a timely fashion. You know that you get the same person and not a call centre or someone who knows nothing about you, meaning you need to go through the whole situation time and time again – and you find that you get different answers to the same issue.
I would recommend Fresh HR Insights Pty Ltd’s services to any size business in any field as their services can be customised to your business need. Fresh HR Insights do not produce generic downloadable policies/procedures like some other companies are offering. They take the time to know your business, understand your needs and become part of the team. Everything is customised to our business to what we need. If you don’t need it they won’t try and sell it to you. For me that’s a HUGE point of difference.
