Plumbers Queensland

Plumbers Queensland has engaged Michalle's services for the last three years. The direction and structure she has established with staffing roles, internal
policies and procedures has seen our company expand significantly and run more efficiently in that time. Maintaining the highest level of professionalism and conduct is important to Plumbers Queensland and Michalle succeeds with this in her own business. Her role is an important part of our company, now and in the future.

Archers Body Corporate Management

Our business has experienced a high growth rate over the past few years and with this came the necessity to find more staff.  Recognising the stressful and time consuming process of recruiting, we contacted Michalle Faulkner of Essentials 4 Business Pty Ltd.  Michalle sourced candidates perfectly matched to our expectations.  Essentials 4 Business has recruited 5 staff for our Maroochydore office over the past 2 years with great success.
Archers has now appointed Essentials 4 Business as our exclusive recruitment agency.  They understand the kind of people we want and deliver to a consistently high standard.  We are more than happy to recommend Michalle’s services.

Neuendorf Interiors

Over the past twelve months we have worked with Michalle Faulkner, Essentials4Business, in her capacity of Human Resources Consultant.

During that time, Michalle established and implemented a performance review structure specifically to suit the nature of our business and the role requirements of our team members.

Michalle handled the process tactfully but firmly assisting both staff and management to understand and appreciate the need for and value of these new systems.

For us the outcome has been two fold, better systems, but also enhanced communication of expectations both of management and staff members.

Coastal Business Insurance

I had met Michalle through the Sunshine Coast Business Women’s network and was impressed by her professionalism but it was not until I asked Michalle to advise us on staffing structures, and the development of staff job descriptions that I really began to appreciate her immense knowledge of Human Resource Practices.

Michalle has conducted performance management reviews with all of our staff and this has proven to be an excellent way to obtain feedback from the team in relation to business and personal development.   I have been thoroughly impressed with Michalle’s professionalism and diplomacy when interacting with my team.  Thank you Michalle for your exceptional work.

Smart Advice

Human Resource Management is an area where you need someone who has listening skills, an ability to negotiate fairly, an intimate knowledge of the law and above all someone who can pull it together.  Michalle has all of these qualities.  Michalle is a person I personally recommend to my clients to have on their team.

And I am especially honoured that Michalle won the 2008 SCBWN Micro/Small Business Owner a category that I sponsor.

Michelle Hamer
Director - Smart Advice


As a Business Development Specialist I spend much of my time talking to business owners about the need to keep in their “Unique Talent Zone”…

For business owners, letting go and giving responsibility to someone else can be a big “Leap of Faith”, but the harsh reality is if they don’t they will be limited by their own “Glass Ceiling”.

Another thing I often see is business owners taking on the recruiting themselves which usually leads to more frustrations, wasted time and no guarantee of the result they were looking for.

I unreservedly recommend Michalle and her team to my clients and the results speak for themselves… I have also used Michalle to recruit for me in other businesses I have owned and her professionalism and thoroughness I believe are unmatched.

Ellerfield Financial Planning We engaged the services of Michalle last October. Our practice required direction and structure with regard to staff positions and internal policies and procedures. Michalle has assisted us immensely by providing a professional, efficient service which has enabled us to work through issues within the office that needed to be addressed. Michalle has provided reports which we have been able to implement internally to ensure our office functions efficiently and all staff now have a defined role within our office structure.
We have found Michalle to be very helpful, polite and diplomatic. She has provided us with direction and guidance which we have found to be invaluable. I would not hesitate to recommend Michalle to any business wishing to achieve their goals by implementing a sound business practice plan.
