Workshop Details

There is a lot of training available on the technical, legislative parts of HR. But the more challenging part can be working in the grey areas and developing your ‘soft’ skills (although there’s nothing soft about it).

The HR Advisors Master Class covers the areas that you have to learn face to face and that aren’t regularly discussed and will give you the skills and knowledge to be an HR superstar!

As well as the content, you’ll learn from our fantastic facilitators, who all have a wealth of HR experience and were hand picked as people who will share practical tools and techniques with you and answer your questions with practical and real solutions.

Comments from the Auckland HR Master Class in April:


Angela was great and so awesome to be able to ask her questions and useful info to bring back to my organisation. Good to have another opinion on things that have differing answers. Jess was great and her 5 lessons were great to keep in mind as we progress through our career.


Nikki was very engaging and a great MC. Angela was clear with her explanations of the legal side of things and was very easy to ask questions to. Good to have another opinion on things that have differing answers. Jess was great and her 5 lessons were great to keep in mind as we progress through our career.

It was very valuable for career progression and bridging the gaps between a coordinator to an advisor level for those who are ready to make step up in their careers.


I really enjoyed it, there was a variety of content and some helpful tips and information

Loved it - loved the employment law piece, and personality profiling.



What people say about our training:


“For me the whole day was useful to embed my knowledge – it was an excellent course.”


“Learning about justifications re some of the case law – good to know why a decision was made, course was awesome thank you”


“A fantastic course overall. The fact that I came away with some essential knowledge relating to fixed terms contracts and trial periods (amongst everything else!) meant I could come into work and confidently make a few changes to our IEA's the next day.”


“The seminar was interactive and although professional, was still quite a relaxed environment. The Elephant team really know their stuff and are happy to answer every little niggling question I had during the breaks.”


“I enjoyed the real life examples of what could happen, the different ways people can react and strategies to work with that”.


“Great case studies. The presenters were willing to answer questions and give examples. They involved the group and kept everyone on course.”



“The workshop altogether was great! Nikki has been an absolute star of a facilitator and Angela and Jessica who came to speak were awesome as well. Altogether a very beneficial and good quality training day! Out of tons of workshops and trainings that I have attended in the past 10+ years, this was definitely one of the higher rated ones for me ”
