Will Allan
Founder and Director
Will is a qualified HR Practitioner with over 15 years of HR and Recruitment experience. Will has had the privilege to work with some of New Zealand’s largest organisations as an HR professional. Will has worked in telecommunications, technology, FMCG, Insurance, Not For Profit, and this experience gave Will the desire to create an HR company that helps businesses transform themselves, and their people, to be the best possible version of themselves. When businesses realise that people are an important part of their operation, this is where we do our best work. Will loves working with businesses that want Hello Monday to be a part of their team and to help them shape and structure their HR function, people systems, processes, and strategy to be successful. When Will’s not taking himself too seriously running Hello Monday, he’s doing something active and fun with his young family and when he finds me time…he’s playing golf—without that he’d go insane!
