Experienced, Tested, Real-World HR Policies for Small Business
To give you a bit more background to this pack - my name is Ingrid Cliff and before I was a copywriter, I was a Human Resource Manager for 25 years in a range of different public and private sector companies, ranging from just a handful of workers to 7000 employees. I have an Industrial Relations & Psychology degree and have worked in central government agencies including the Qld Industrial Relations Commission.
One my areas of expertise in HR was policies and procedures. My first task in every business was to review existing policies for legislative compliance, and then design and implement missing core policies. When I left pure HR, my clients asked me for a copy of my manual, which is why this pack was created.
You see, nothing was available on the market that had been specifically written for small business. It was either too complex or left too much out. And anything that was as comprehensive as this pack cost and arm and a leg, which put it out of reach of the people who need it. Other policy packs were filled with jargon and were complex to read and implement. Which is why this pack is written in plain English and is easy to understand and follow.
The policies and procedures in this kit are regularly updated and they are vetted by our lawyers to ensure compliance with the latest requirements.
What others say
"Heart Harmony's Instant HR Policies & Procedures is invaluable for small businesses - it is professional, extensive, and immediately accessible. One "find & replace" action was all that was required to create a working draft for our company, and then it was extremely easy to edit to fit our particular situation. It turns a nightmare of documentation requirements into a dream. Thanks Ingrid!"
Dianna Blake, Wimmer Water Solutions
"Thank you again for the wonderful HR package we purchased from you. Immediately this morning I spent hrs reading and going through the whole Manual and the extra bonuses...
It is everything we wanted to implement or put in place for our Company; it fits all our Company’s HR policies purposes and needs perfect. We have been using current Labour Law of Samoa – very basic but do not have the details like this package that we have always wanted.
We also appreciate the level of detail and attention and effort you have put into developing it.
It’s a blessing to have found your HR package on the Net."
Shorley Mariner, OSM Consult, Samoa
"... you have covered everything and it was very easy to adapt to our Company culture - also having an Australian focus was very useful as most of the other online versions available are US law based, although ironically I actually bought it for our US office and adapted it but have since used it for our Australian office as well."
"Has been really helpful and definitely saved me time. Have written some P&P of my own but this covers many other things I hadn’t thought of and which would have taken me a lot of time to write myself. It is up to date with latest fair work regulations. A good reminder of all the things I need to be doing as an employer."

Why so inexpensive?
We regularly get calls from people wanting to check that documents and all the bonuses only cost $197 + GST. They want to know why we don't charge hundreds more.
The reason is that we are a small Australian business and want to support other small businesses like us. We know small businesses don't have the cash to splash around - they simply want good solutions delivered fast. Which is why we pruned out everything that adds to the cost of packages like ours. There is no fancy additional software, no discs, no packaging, no printing. There are no big offices and no expensive marketing. And we don't do daily updates - just once a year major reviews. We pruned out of all our costs which means we can make it affordable and easy to access by most businesses.
That's why we can keep our costs low .. and have kept them low for the 8 years this kit has been on the market.
