What our clients are saying

Our organisation RMHC VicTas has been well supported and greatly benefited from the assistance and work of Jan Marsden and the Standard Candle HR team for over 6 years. Standard Candle HR has provided invaluable support and guidance in HR generalist support to us including employee relations, performance management, leadership & management training and recruitment advice.

Jan and the Standard Candle team have been the best HR consultancy my organisation has ever worked with. They're dependable and always there to support and guide us in the right and fair direction whenever we need their services. They always provide us with efficient, reliable, informed, and cost effective HR services. Their communications are clear and straight forwarded and the team is really nice to talk to and work with, nothing is really an issue when it comes to dealing and working with these guys, highly recommended.

Rafel Adham, Solo Services Group

Jan and the team at Standard Candle HR support your business so seamlessly that if your staff aren't told they're a consultancy they would view them as an integral part of the team. They work hard to be part of the culture and their level of professionalism and discretionary efforts are invaluable. For either project work or long term support, Jan and her team take away the worry and replace it with confident, timely and meaningful answers. I would highly recommend Standard Candle HR to any sized business in Australia.

We were very impressed by the quality of the work Jan and Standard team has done for us; the documents, their communication with members of our organisation and the manner in which they conduct your business. We would not hesitate to recommend Standard Candle, if the opportunity presented itself, as Fred Schenck recommended Standard Candle to Four Wheel Drive Victoria.
