Supporting workplaces that put people first


Who We Are


Kia ora, I'm Steph. 

I have a dream of wanting people to live their best lives, and I want work to not be a barrier to that.

The reality is most people will have a job at some point in their lifetime and I want people to feel safe enough to bring their whole selves to work. I want people to have time back to spend it on the things that bring them joy. I want people to be guided in a way that allows them to thrive and I want people to be treated fairly and equally.

So I founded Stephanie Love Limited to support organisations in understanding opportunities to put people at the centre of everything they do and removing barriers to work getting in the way of people living their best lives. 

By way of our uniquely developed People First Index framework, we work with business leaders and HR professionals to measure the progressiveness of an organisations people policies and practices, and offer practical recommendations to put people first, leading to increases in employee wellbeing, engagement, retention, attraction, happiness, and reductions in attrition, burnout and absenteeism, ultimately leading to increases in innovation, creativity, productivity, sales, organisations achieving their business goals, and people living their best lives.

Get in touch today for a free 30-minute consultation to see how we can support your organisation on your journey to putting people first.

What we do


Business Consulting

How we can help

Our business is built on the belief that the best organisations to work for are the ones that put people at the centre of everything they do. 

To support your organisation to be the best, we work with you to assess your organisation's policies and practices against the People First Index, our uniquely developed framework that measures your organisation against progressive, researched criteria.

We provide this feedback to your organisation, so you can understand where and how you can make changes to your working practices and culture that would help make your people feel as though they are treated fairly, respectfully and as though they are as important as stakeholder value.

We aim to support organisations to be the best place to work for their people, so that they are able to:

  • Be themselves

  • Give within the bounds they are contracted to give

  • Be given meaningful work for a cause they believe in

  • Be treated with fairness and equality

This can lead to:

  • Increased sales and revenue due to consumers choosing your organisation over competitors

  • Being recognised as an employer of choice and attracting and retaining top talent

  • Enhanced innovation, creativity and problem-solving

  • A decrease in cost associated with absenteeism and employee burnout

  • Increase in attraction to future generations entering the workforce

  • Validated and reliable data on the position of people policies and practices that can inform strategy
