Renee Henville - Managing Director of Integrated Human Resourcing
Great Companies: Please tell me something about the business and how did you come up with such an idea?
Renee Henville: I had been part of in-house Human Resources teams for many years, and when on maternity leave a number of contract opportunities were presented to me. I jumped at the chance to contract to these companies and so Integrated Human Resources was created. That was 9 years ago, since then (and having 2 children) the business has grown to support over 90 businesses with a total of some 900+ employees. We are a team of 3 (+ a university intern), based in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast.
