WHAT WE DO

QHR is a unique Australian consulting firm that specialises in applying the concepts of Quantitative
Human Resources – Where the disciplines of finance, strategy and HR intersect.

QHR adopts a business consulting approach to understand the drivers of your business and provide solutions that realise clear outcomes.  These solutions leverage our core strengths in HR analytics, strategic workforce planning and remuneration design.

 

Each director has a depth of expertise and proven ability to deliver tangible business results.  We have built QHR on the principles of creativity and innovation.  We listen to clients and provide leading edge outcomes.

 

Effective workforce utilisation is a strong competitive advantage for QHR clients – we provide these companies with a deeper understanding of their current organisation and its future opportunities.  Together, our goal is to optimise the HR programs that enable people to achieve business success over the short and long term.  QHR uses analytics as a tool rather than an end to highlight the facts needed for the best decision making.

Alicia successfully combined business consulting with complex data analyses and sophisticated financial modelling to make strategic recommendations to business leaders.

 

Alicia spent some time in consulting before joining NBN Co, which as a start-up organisation of size and to-be scale provided her with a challenging opportunity! Alicia defined and implemented, from scratch, a HR Business Intelligence, Reporting and Workforce Planning Strategy and Roadmap to align with company objectives and drive the efficient delivery of NBN Co’s internal workforce. From development of analytical assets to enable strategic decision making, to organisational analysis and review to assess structural issues, to projects around deep insights for actionable intelligence, Alicia has developed a proven ability to create real solutions that deliver tangible value not just for HR, but for the entire business.

 

Alicia is passionate about building the understanding of, and the intrinsic need for the value that data can give in enabling organisations to understand and maximise their human capital, and in turn their business delivery.

CHRIS HARE in

Director

 

Chris Hare is a leading remuneration expert with 15 years of experience gained in corporate and consulting roles.  After attaining a Finance degree, Chris worked in the specialised field of executive remuneration consulting in the United States, applying value driver analysis to the design of Short Term Incentive (STI) and Long Term Incentive (LTI) plans.  Serendipitously taking the opportunity to transfer to Sydney, Chris spent almost three years providing further executive remuneration advice to Australian companies, primarily within the ASX 100.
Expand
Believing that corporate experience was necessary to increase his value as a consultant, Chris spent over seven years in corporate roles at Mirvac and NBN Co. At Mirvac, Chris established the remuneration function, introduced its first formal STI program, and overhauled the LTI program.  With his role broadened to include divisional HR responsibility, Chris introduced HR coordination across previously decentralised regions and created a single performance management system.  Chris spent the last six months at Mirvac as the Acting Group General Manager HR before moving on to NBN Co.

 

At NBN Co, Chris again established the remuneration function, designed the remuneration structure, and created the STI and recognition programs that remain in place.  In addition, Chris managed the payroll function and was responsible for developing and implementing the performance management system.  For the last two years, his role expanded and Chris took direct management of the Recruitment and Workforce Planning functions where he introduced candidate assessments, the roadmap to evolve from volume-based to value-added recruitment, and the creation of a Sourcing function.
