“I believe that key to successful employment relations is to use someone from Paul Diver Associates who is up to date with the current legislation and is available for professional and independent advice when the going gets sticky.”

Thomas Müller
Managing Director


Caspex Corporation Ltd

“In an ever changing environment of legislation, case law, compliance, good faith bargaining and unchartered waters,  it is reassuring to work with a party that knows their stuff, can provide creditable insight and advice on key decisions, strategies and assist with road mapping the way forward. Paul Diver Associates are such a team. A consultancy who know our business, understand our people, our culture and our objectives. Who tell us what we need to know, not necessarily what we want to hear.”

“The new Health & Safety legislation has been a huge challenge for our organisation.  With the guidance from Paul Diver Associates we have been able to successfully implement positive changes in health and safety from our Head Office through to our clubs.   They have provided us with easy to understand presentations, user-friendly forms and simple processes to follow.  I highly value the tailor-made approach Paul Diver Associates took in assisting us through this process, and recommend their professional services without hesitation.”

Kerry Clark

Compass Group NZ Ltd

“My association with Paul Diver Associates goes back some 15 years.  We engage Paul and his team for a variety of assignments, mainly around the Industrial Relations and Employment Relations area, as specialist advisors and for management training.  On the Industrial Relations side, Paul provides expertise as our strategic advisor and as bargaining Advocate.  Paul’s wealth of knowledge in the IR area, together with his credibility with many union officials, assists us in the development of our bargaining strategy approach, and in managing some complex bargaining situations, often leading to faster results.

 In the Employment Relations area, we appreciate the expert advice and support from Paul and the team in supporting us to manage and reach appropriate and prompt resolution to ER issues when required, including complex disciplinary matters and mediations.

The other area where the team provide a valued contribution is in the development and delivery of ER and IR training for the business leadership and management team.  They have recently facilitated ER Workshops for all of our Senior and Middle Management across the business, which has received excellent feedback from participants both on the content and delivery, and we are seeing a definite return on investment with our Managers utilising the tools, skills and confidence gained via this programme.”
