Cheryl-Anne Laird Managing Director - Providence HR

Cheryl-Anne Laird, HR Consulting

I celebrate success with my clients, but more importantly, I’m with them in the trenches if things get tough. 

I head up the team of highly skilled and experienced consultants for Mazar’s HR division, Providence HR . I have worked in senior human resources and industrial relations roles and have consulted to clients in both the private and public sectors across the full spectrum of human resources and industrial relations. I base my success on developing long-term partnerships with my clients. I am not a ‘fair weather’ consultant – rest assured that I will be with you if you need me.

I thrive on challenges and excel at identifying unique, yet practical solutions to solve the most challenging people issues at both the strategic and operational levels. As a cross-discipline consultant, I am as happy to give you strategic advice about people management issues today as represent you in tribunals to defend your position, if necessary tomorrow.

My interesting mix of tertiary qualifications including Law, Business and Psychology has allowed me to develop a specialist expertise in assisting my clients navigate the myriad of challenges arising from the combination of employment and mental health issues – including strategies for managing the vagaries of the various workers compensation systems for psychological injury claims.

I am a recognised expert in Workplace Investigations and have over the past 15 years trained and mentored some of the most highly respected workplace investigators in Queensland.

When I’m not helping my clients, I enjoy travel and interacting with my social circles.
