Lisa Mackay – Managing Director


With 20 years experience across the UK and New Zealand, Lisa has a wealth of knowledge and skills in this sector. She is responsible for the launch of HRtoolkit and personally signs off every document in the DIY document library. Lisa’s approach to employment relations is one of practical common sense. She is continually striving to not only resolve the immediate issue, but also train the managers she is working with to ensure that they are able to do it themselves in the future. Lisa’s employment law knowledge is extensive, and it is through this knowledge that she is able to ensure any solution is not only legally compliant, but is also delivering the best possible solution for the company.

If you would like to discuss an employment issue with Lisa or need further guidance on using HRtoolkit, please contact her on 0800 HRtoolkit or Lisa@hrtoolkit.co.nz
