Our Team

rebecca simpson – director and principal consultant

Rebecca Simpson founded Simpson Consulting in 2016 with a mission to provide reliable, strategic, practical and personalised service to businesses struggling to find their feet in the world of workplace relations and human resources.

Since 2003, Rebecca’s experience in industrial and workplace relations demonstrates an impressive balance between:

  • Employee and Employer Associations – including a role with Australia’s largest employer association;
  • Federal Government (Workplace Compliance and Investigations);
  • Internal workplace relations positions in various white and blue collar industries – including aviation, construction, manufacturing, finance and retail.

Rebecca is also an engaging and dynamic speaker and trainer, able to deliver content usually deemed “dry” causing people to drift off mid-session (we’ve all been in one of those sessions!). With expertise in the subjects she delivers, Rebecca is able to ensure that legal compliance is met but with interactive methods and character.

With this experience across industries and frameworks, Rebecca brings to her clients a wealth of experience in:

  • Strategic industrial relations and human resources planning
  • Interpretation of Awards and industrial relations material
  • Policy and procedure development (including “Employee Handbook” for small/medium businesses)
  • Design, implementation and ongoing supervision of performance appraisal/management systems
  • Workplace Training – Executive, Management/Supervisor and Employee
  • Complex Case Management including Investigations
  • Review or draft employment contracts
  • Dispute resolution and mediation
  • Conciliation and conflict intervention
  • Unfair and unlawful dismissal negotiations and representation
  • Redundancies
  • Management/Owner training and mentoring

It is this broad and balanced approach to business and workplace relations that Rebecca brings to the table when working with your business to achieve the best for you and your people.
