We want every workplace in New Zealand to be safe and fair.

Our vision is to help every business access affordable, expert advice on Workplace Relations and Workplace health and safety. When we say every business, we mean it. We are focused on small to medium sized businesses, which are the backbone of the New Zealand economy.

In order to realise this vision, we have revolutionised the way business owners get help with their employees, wages and HSW.

We make Workplace Relations and HSW services accessible to
businesses of all sizes.

Here is what the traditional business model looked like:

Business owners are essentially on your own, left to wrestle with a complicated workplace relations system.

When issues arise, small businesses may be forced to seek advice, which is reactive and may not be affordable to businesses at the time.

Seeking advice reactively does not necessarily suit small businesses.

It may cause emotional stress and financial pain.

It gives you advice that is too limited, too expensive, and too late.

We wanted to help by giving the right advice, at the right time, at the right price for you.

Our story...

Peninsula is part of the award-winning Peninsula Group, which have delivered outsourced HR, Employment Relations and Work Health & Safety services to businesses for over 40 years. Our Peninsula service supports your business and assists with compliance of your responsibilities.

Our founder identified a gap between the fees that were being charged and the problems that were being solved when it comes to employment relations. The traditional model for getting legal support didn’t adequately meet the needs of SMES and was expensive and time consuming.

Peninsula’s service was set up in New Zealand to help solve that problem.

Who are we?

Jump forward to today, Peninsula is a team of more than 300 advisers and consultants across Australia and New Zealand.

We’re like hiring an HR team, a health & safety manager and an employment law solicitor all in one. Except we’re a fraction of the cost. We are the largest providers of Workplace Relations, and Health and Safety services in New Zealand and we provide unlimited support for our clients.

Our expert team is made up of different specialists from a variety of different backgrounds including unions, industrial associations and large corporations.

New Zealand has one of the most complicated industrial relations systems in the world. We know it inside out.

What do we do for you?

Peninsula helps businesses with Workplace Relations and HSW with expert advice.
We aim to provide a more comprehensive service that provides you with support across all stages of the employee lifecycle.

We are Your business partner

Peninsula is one of the fastest-growing professional services companies in New Zealand. But we are different from other professional services firms.

We are always here to help you.

We give advice 365 days of the year. When it comes to your employees or HSW, you will never be alone.

We are your sounding board.

Business is personal. We understand that. When something happens in your business, your first instinct is reactive. That is natural.

We not only deal with the complexity of legislation we also help to deal with some of the related complexities that may be due to human behaviour. Give Peninsula a call and check what you are meant to do. We give you the chance to press the 'pause' button.

The employer might experience less risk, and the employee might well be treated more fairly.

We help employers, but we help employees too

While Peninsula is focused on helping employers, this has a positive impact on employees.

To that effect, 500,000 employees now sit below Peninsula's client base.

That means that 500,000 workers are subject to Peninsula advice. Many of them are not unionized.

We like to think that there is a mutual benefit: the employer might experience less risk and the employee might well be treated more fairly.

We are part of the UK's Peninsula Group

Peninsula is a subsidiary of Peninsula Business Services Group Ltd, based in the United Kingdom, and comes under the banner of the Rainy City Investments Ltd, also based in the UK.
Peninsula has been providing professional services to small businesses across the UK since 1983.
