Armidale-based HR firm high performer in local government arena

July 31, 2018

Locally-based Pinnacle People Solutions has achieved NSW-wide Local Government Approved Contractor status for the provision of HR services. Key selection criteria included the ability to understand the current environment and challenges facing local authorities in NSW as well as a depth and breadth of knowledge of rules and regulations within which Councils must operate.
Pinnacle People Solutions has also been selected, by tender, as a preferred HR, Safety and Training supplier to Armidale Regional Council. Kim Bryan, Service Leader – People, Safety and Communications, Armidale Regional Council said, “We chose Pinnacle People Solutions because they have a proven track record in collaborating with multi-location regional business and have the depth and breadth of HR experience in local government we were looking for. Being regionally-headquartered was a bonus. We are looking forward to a productive working partnership together.”
Multi-award-winning HR Consultancy, Pinnacle People Solutions specialises in supporting regionally-based organisations and not-for-profits by providing HR services and helping them build internal capacity. Their scope of services includes HR health audits and framework builds, investigations, performance management, Industrial Relations, specialised recruitment, and executive coaching.
Due to demand Pinnacle People Solutions has recently added HR training to its offering having become the HR trainers for the Hunter New England and Central Coast Primary Health Network and having previously done training for the RMA network across NSW.
Bronwyn Pearson, Chief Executive Officer says, “Building regional capacity was a foundation principle behind the formation of Pinnacle People Solutions. It’s exciting to see that vision coming to life where we can provide highly tailored solutions that meet the unique needs of regionally-based local government and the communities they serve. And being regionally based ourselves we have a unique understanding of the challenges regionally-based government and small business face in attracting and retaining staff to their regional communities, and in their day-to-day operations, “Bronwyn went on to say.
Key to Pinnacle People Solutions success has not just been its comprehensive understanding of Human Resources and Industrial Relations but its breadth and depth of experience successfully operating in a rural and regional environment.
Anthony Fox, President Armidale Business Chamber said, “Pinnacle People Solutions is to be congratulated on its achievement in HR services. It’s exciting to see Armidale businesses grow, building regional capacity and succeeding outside their local area. It’s even better when they buck the trend that sees the appointment of city-based firms to regional contracts.”
