People are the power behind any business. We know that for a fact! And their needs are constantly changing - whether that’s overnight to adapt to work from home requirements or over time, to develop an attractive employee value proposition.
HumanX is asking you to rethink your HR function; not as paper pushers or to tick a box. Modern workplaces in Newcastle know that HR experts help fuel efficiency, carve out growth and shape teams.
Our HR consulting services advise businesses and guide them to create change and positive working experiences. We are strategic experts, working with leaders and other HR professionals who are seeking objectivity, confidentiality and expertise.

When do you need an HR consultant Newcastle?
When you’re thinking about growth
You’re in business for a reason, right? You’re likely always thinking about growth. HR consulting works side by side with existing leaders and HR professionals to turn innovative ideas into action. If you’re thinking about real growth - organisational development, introducing new departments, expansion and making a real splash - HumanX's HR consultants in Newcastle can provide strategic oversight and develop successful working environments for the humans that are going to do the real heavy lifting.
When you’re dealing with a specific problem
This is a common way that consultants are engaged. Recently, challenges facing businesses have turned to retention, employee engagement and benefits packages - all deeply rooted in human resources and company culture. We work to investigate and diagnose problems at their core - not just the symptoms that may be showing on the surface. We can then work with you as an outsourced HR department to roll out strategic, advantageous answers to those problems.
When your projects aren’t getting across the line
If you’re looking to test a new initiative for your team or manage a cross-department project but the needle isn’t moving, Our HR consultants in Newcastle act as an extension of your existing team. In house HR teams might be stretched too thin to deliver effectively or are simply looking for additional expert strategists to supplement and provide support, HumanX consulting services will bring confidence to your HR decision making, as well as many years of experience to accelerate progress to get projects completed.
Do you recognise your company in any of these scenarios?
Our HR is too Toby-from-the-office
Everyone has strengths, both as professionals and as people. There are many situations in which using an external HR consultant is a more effective option.
Ultimately, HR can be a tricky position to hold in an organisation; striking the balance between employee-support and communicating the company’s message; empathy versus becoming an agony aunt; being the champion of culture whilst also being the person managing risk.
Bringing in HumanX to support your team means that everyone can play to their strengths. Our experts can create space for critical conversations, feedback honestly, without agenda, and help leaders make decisions based on real information. We can support Toby with performance management plans and work to achieve company goals together.
Our HR department needs support
Modern HR leaders require skills in project management, business strategy, commercial awareness, coaching, talent management, compliance and workplace relations, remuneration, learning and development, and of course recruitment.
Outsourced HR experts can support the internal team without the distractions of politics, everyday requests and growing to do lists. Able to operate as an independent squad with a single focus or integrate into the team and fly alongside the existing HR managers to lead and deliver on projects, new initiatives or help cope with capacity.
Need to get more out of the experts you already have
For business leaders who are craving space – both time and brain-space - a great HR team will understand that it is their job to enable people to do their best work. Choosing the right talent (or inviting the right talent to choose your business), designing a best-in-class learning and development program, and ensuring that your remuneration strategy is on point will help.
The gamechanger: coaching your leaders. This is the space where humans will grow, engage, and find their superpowers. Coaching is a skill in itself, it’s not every leader’s natural state. Great HR professionals have been equipped with coaching skills and understand that coaching is an ego-less journey that is critical to developing exceptional leaders. Structured coaching programs are a brilliant extra, but coaching in the workflow, and in day-to-day interactions between HR and leaders is a valuable must-have.
My team tells me that communication needs improvement
If your team is feeding back to you that communication in the organisation needs improvement, they’re trying to tell you (without risking their jobs) that your communication needs improvement. Whether this is your communication directly, or as a leadership team, or simply internal systems and processes are not effective at allowing the flow of information, we can help.
Bringing external HR experts into a situation like this is efficient; we are able to zoom out and diagnose issues and challenges - from communication that may be causing frustration and high employee turnover to the root cause of disengagement. Better than that, we will also work with your organisation to develop the HR function to resolve any concerns, improve processes and mature the company’s approach to your people.

HumanX is a leading provider of independent, impartial and fair workplace investigation services to organisations dealing with allegations of inappropriate behaviour at work.

Outsourcing workplace investigations to an independent firm is a cost effective and practical method that will help you ensure compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks.
With our HR agency, boost your internal capability and see better results in less time. Engage a consultant or team to drive and lead HR initiatives that lead to incredible company-wide results.

Work with HumanX to develop functional processes, reliable boundaries and compliances that set your company up for future success and solid HR foundations.
