AdviceFirst has welcomed POD Consulting, a highly regarded HR consultancy, into its business.

POD is an established NZ HR Consultancy, that works alongside business owners and managers providing expertise in business strategy and specialist HR advice with a focus on building positive cultures, tracking business performance and managing employment relations.

Combining POD and AdviceFirst services means our collective clients will have access to a wider range of valuable advice, specific to their business and personal lives.

In addition to financial planning advice we now also offer:

  • business planning advice
  • HR services and systems covering everything from inductions to managing disciplinary matters
  • employee engagement through to leadership development
  • recruitment solutions
  • coaching and career development
  • succession planning and support with business exits

AdviceFirst and POD have been working together for several months on a shared vision to develop an opportunity that would see us partnering more closely with our respective clients and their teams.

Being a trusted strategic partner to business owners and managers has enabled the clients of both organisations to get on with achieving their business goals in the knowledge that they have us as their partner for quality advice and as a sounding board.
