Over more than 30 years in business I have worked with a lot of HR practitioners - in both the corporate and SME markets. During this time I have found it to largely be a 90:10 split between those practitioners who have a strong grasp of HR principles and those who have a strong grasp of the principles AND understand the commerciality of how/when to apply them. In business - you need a HR practitioner who understands that there is a wider business agenda to be considered ALONG WITH the needs of the individual. Suzanne Diprose of Performance Advantage strikes the balance beautifully by leveraging her depth of experience in business, so if you are looking for strong HR support WITH commerciality - you can find no better.
On The Money Bookkeeping
I have worked together with Suzanne for a significant mutual client. Suzanne provides an excellent service to help businesses with all manner of human resource issues, both proactively and also reactively when necessary. Many businesses have staff-related challenges. Suzanne has excellent tools and provides great advice to mitigate business risk. She can also help businesses attract and retain the right mix of staff to help them achieve their goals. Many business owners would be well-placed seeking out the services of a qualified human resource professional such as Suzanne.
We’ve been working closely with Performance Advantage for many years. Suzanne’s knowledge and experience gives us the confidence to move forward with business decisions, efficiently and with excellent guidance. Performance Advantage has ensured that as a business we provide sufficient focus to the management of our most important asset, our staff.
I recently had the privilege of engaging the services of Performance Advantage and must add that Suzanne Diprose is an exemplary consultant, must be one of the best in the industry.
Lily Daff, Director
Our office engaged the services of Suzanne to recruit a vital position for our growing team. The outsourcing of the recruitment enabled our business to continue it's day to day operation whilst Suzanne looked after all aspects of the process. By outsourcing, the process was conducted more professionally and more timely than if we had attempted to fill this role ourselves. Very happy with the outcome and we will be engaging Suzanne's expertise for any future vacancies that may arise.

Deborah Gange - Director
I have known Suzanne for over one year now and have watched and taken note about Suzanne's professionalism and enthusiasm for helping small businesses succeed and be the best they can - whilst also dealing with workplace relations, staff employment and recruitment in a professional manner. Suzanne is currently a mentor to several business owners and has been such a positive influence on them.
I am currently working with Suzanne to help my business progress forward in a professional manner, and find her to be ideas driven, positive and in tune with where I currently am and where I am looking to go.
I highly recommend Suzanne, especially if you are a small to Medium sized business, looking for a plug-in HR consultant.
