Everest Group extends HR services to Waipa and Otorohanga districts

One of the region’s fastest-growing human resource consultancies, Everest Group Ltd, is extending its HR services to the Waipa and Otorohanga districts.

And with the expansion of services comes new expertise, as Everest Group welcomes new human resource specialist Wanda Baldock to lead the expansion.

“Everest Group has recognised an opportunity in the Waipa and Otorohanga districts. There are lots of growing and established businesses in the region that are flourishing, and these businesses can benefit with some professional support in their people management space,” said Managing director and human resource specialist Senga Allen.

“We are excited to have Wanda on board to expertly lead the extension of our services. She and the Everest Group team look forward to helping Waipa and Otorohanga business owners to get the best out of their employees.”

Wanda brings to Everest Group a decade of experience in the human resource and people management fields.

Prior to her new role, Wanda worked in human resource and industrial relations positions for major New Zealand organisations including the Department of Labour and Fonterra. She spent the two years directly preceding her time at Everest Group as an HR consultant for local small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

Wanda’s areas of expertise include strategic and operational HR, employee relations, recruitment and leadership development.

Senga says she also has a natural and strong business acumen.

“In all work Everest Group does, we focus on a practical, relationship-focused approach to lift capability and add value to our clients’ businesses. It’s helpful that, given Wanda’s background in both the public and private sectors, she has a refined understanding of the way business works,” Senga said.

Wanda, who has a Bachelor of Social Sciences with a major in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations at the University of Waikato, says she is looking forward to working for such a well-established organisation.

“Everest Group partners with their clients in the delivery of HR, training and development, recruitment and health and safety.

“They are a trusted advisor, which is vital when you’re assisting managers and business owners to develop strategies that link with the business goals and can be executed into day to day operations,” she said.

Wanda’s new role is a continuation of the steady growth Everest Group has experienced over the past five years. Everest Group has expanded its staff from just two to nine people within that timeframe.
