“Like many businesses in the SME sector, the impact of COVID-19 was felt early on, well before JobKeeper and other government support schemes were announced. With information changing constantly, we came to rely on our new partnership with Norgay HR to steer us through that difficult period when it came to looking after our team.”
“The understanding, supportive and professional help I have received from Clare has been amazing. To be able to talk through options for the small business I work in has been very helpful in these unprecedented times especially in our travel industry. Thank you Clare Long”
“I know that Norgay HR support a number of clients, however, their quick responses, their calmness and practical advice to deal with COVID-19 made me feel like my business was a priority and I would recommend them to any business owner looking for HR advice in calm waters or in crisis”
“If you are a business faced with the decisions that I was faced with as a result of COVID-19, I would strongly recommend Norgay HR to you as a knowledgeable, pragmatic, calm and empathetic partner to your business at this difficult time.”
“First impressions count. From the minute we engaged Norgay I knew we had made the right decision and that Clare and her team were the right people to make sure we were looking after our team and our business. They understood our concerns but also set out a framework that we feel is realistic and workable. I feel comfortable that Norgay has our back but will also keep us out in front”
“Our working partnership means that we can call on the Norgay HR team when we need direction or advice on any aspect of HR management within the business. I don’t worry about a thing now, it’s all taken care of”
“I had a very difficult member of staff who was having a very negative impact on myself and my team. I was referred to Norgay HR by another business owner and after just one conversation, they had recommended an approach that presented no financial risk to the business.”
NorgayHR have been our external human resources partner for over 12 months. They have been an excellent partner for Agentbox. With Clare’s guidance, coaching and deep understanding of human resources we have been able to fast-track resolution of HR related matters that once consumed a great deal of my time and that of my management team. Clare is pragmatic in her approach and her significant experience is evident in the advice and support she provides to me and to my management team.
NorgayHR have been the ideal human resources partner for our growing team. Clare’s combination of expertise, and practical experience is enhanced by her own personal values – values that align to our business. This makes her a valuable asset and an ongoing partner of Brickfields.
Clare is a cultural thought leader. Her personal style is open, encouraging and supportive, empathetic to the commercial pressures associated with significant change while also focused and driven to ensure capabilities and culture move forward. Clare’s coaching, counsel and support was invaluable to allowing me to put in place the accountability, skilling, recognition and process foundations required to create a high performance environment.
I was introduced to Clare Long of Norgay HR Consulting by my Accountant after seeking his counsel on a sensitive HR matter. From the first moment I spoke to Clare, she put me at ease. I needed assistance to manage a staffing issue that I had not come up against before, and Clare’s professional and pragmatic approach mitigated potential business risk as a result of a tricky staffing situation. It is very reassuring to know that I can receive this level of HR expertise when I need it and I would recommend Clare Long of Norgay HR Consulting to any company looking for an outsourced HR offering”.
Clare began working with me as a Coach when I was promoted to my current role.

Working alongside Clare has been (and still is) a rewarding experience. We hired Clare to help drive our internal communication around Human Resources at Boldinc. Aside from realigning our HR systems to better reflect our company values and be compliant with today’s industry standards, Clare’s patience and interpersonal skills have proven an ongoing asset to the leadership team and the wider company. Clare has become a trusted advisor to management and employees across the studio both on business aspects and the softer skills of people management and communication, balancing HR advice with common sense and problem solving as required. Clare has successfully managed to find her place on the team amid strong personalities, and proactively engage with the team offering suggestions and tools to help streamline our processes and improve our communication, allowing our key players to focus on growing the business.
Clare is well versed on both the theoretical and practical aspects of her chosen profession and is always willing to share her knowledge and help guide and shape those around her. A seasoned and successful change manager, Clare successfully led highly visible, critical transformation programs. She was able to craft effective strategies to ensure maximum engagement from teams and has been the author of many well designed programs, encompassing all aspects of performance leadership. I am pleased to say that I took my career to a new strategic level under Clare’s guidance. I would recommend Clare to any business looking to produce outstanding results from its most important resources.
Working with Clare has been invaluable for me. Her professionalism and friendly approach made it easy for us to explore different and at times challenging thoughts during our sessions. I cannot express the value that I have gotten out of our coaching sessions and cannot thank her enough. I would recommend her for all levels of professional coaching within your organisation.
