Our Story

Kerrie Canning
Co-Founder and Director

Hello, I’m Kerrie Canning and I co-founded HR Advice Online in 2011. We started HR Advice Online because we saw small business owners were often on their own, struggling to keep pace with changing employment laws and having to make employment decisions without a sounding board. Often, these small businesses didn’t have the right HR systems in place and weren’t adequately protected from difficult employees. We knew we could help.

Our first client is still a client to this day.   Since then, we’ve grown rapidly with a national client base of small businesses, membership organisations, franchise groups, and professional services firms across Australia.

Sally Garner - Director

In 2020, I was delighted to be joined by my business partner and co-owner, Sally Garner. Like me, Sally has an extensive background in HR and recruitment, with a special interest in health care. I have known Sally both personally and professionally for a long time and together, we make a knockout team!

HR Advice Online

We are supported by our consulting team who are the friendly HR experts who look after our members. What we love about them is the care and interest they show in you, our clients, getting to know your businesses, employees, and thinking about your business, as if it were our own.

Over the years, we’ve had the pleasure to help thousands of business owners throughout Australia protect their businesses and build productive, happy workplace cultures.

Whether you are hiring your first employee, growing your team and managing the day to day people requirements or restructuring and realigning your people to the business needs, HR Advice Online helps you every step of the way.  

For some it’s the foundation to establish the people processes and practices, for others it’s best practice HR to be an employer of choice.
