For a number of years the AFA has been searching for the right fit of Human Resource and Industrial Relations services fit for its Members. As you can imagine the diversity of our Membership means that your needs are all so different and that the highest level of professional expert solutions is required, so it was a great challenge to find something that suited the majority. Some of you need some telephone advice from time to time, others require an outsourced service that manages everything from payroll to industrial disputes, and then there are others who need a mix of services, so our work was cut out for us and in getting the right fit. We are excited to announce a unique support offering for our Platinum and Importer Members – HR Support Services provided by the team at AB Phillips.

AB Phillips HR Support services are operated by seasoned HR Practitioners.
