HR Practitioners offer Human Resources and Industrial Relations Services

HR Practitioners was started by Vivienne Bowden in 2003, after many years of HR experience.

Viv’s passion is to empower companies to be more profitable through swift and effective staff management, and to minimise job losses through education and proper communication.

Our unique positioning also allows us to draw alongside an existing HR Manager and support them on a daily basis, with proper qualified legal advice in all spheres of Labour Law.


HR Practitioners History

In 1996 Vivienne Bowden was approached by a UKZN Law Graduate to grow his legal business. She accepted, and as their partnership grew, she was tutored by him in the various nuances and rules of Labour Law.

Viv studied the applicable Acts, and found that she was needed as his full time back up in the office, dispensing legal advice to their rapidly growing client base.

In 2001 Viv moved to Bergville, KwaZulu-Natal, where she started her own business consulting to farmers and businesses in the small town. To this day she still retains two of her original Bergville clients, and visits them whenever needed.

In 2003 Viv relocated back to Hillcrest, and worked seriously on growing her own Company. This is when HR Practitioners was born.

Viv enjoys building lasting and mutually beneficial relationships with her clients, and strives to add value to each one on a daily basis.
