What Our Clients Say...

Kate and her team have been the perfect addition to our business that we desperately needed to handle sensitive HR matters. Always responsive, punctual, to the point and gives us the no nonsense advice that we need, having Kate on board means I no longer worry about making the wrong decisions that could have large implications for the business. We have peace of mind that all issues we face are handled properly.

I would recommend Russell HR to anyone looking to add a HR arm to their business, without having the expense of employing someone full time.
