HR Compliance

HR compliance isn’t just a bit of admin that comes around every year. It is vital to keeping your company running and every individual safe. It’s really not an area of expertise you should skimp on. Bring in an experienced professional when it’s most important. Work with HumanX HR compliance teams to shine a light on what you weren’t aware of and protect what’s most important.

HR Compliance Checks by Employee Relations & HR Experts

Any organisation with employees, customers or clients in Australia has a duty of care to those people. It is the responsibility of the business to keep employees safe at work, but it’s also great if you can keep them happy, too. 

Meeting compliance obligations and fulfilling legal requirements is the first step to building a workplace of trust and confidence. Employees, prospective talent and clients will all know that you’re a dependable organisation when you tick all the required boxes. The alternative - failing to maintain HR compliance and standards - can put the business at risk, open to litigation and extremely costly fines. Not to mention, the reputational damage in the worst case scenario. 

Often, maintaining policies and procedures, updating contracts, health and safety standards and regulation changes falls to operations or finance managers, without the proper knowledge of the Australian employment landscape and what the requirements are. It can be pushed around the office from desk to desk, missing deadlines and benchmarked standards. 

Don’t take that risk - by outsourcing your HR compliance to HumanX you can know that we’re going to keep you covered, your workplace safe, and mitigate any risks. We are Employee Relations experts and HR consultants that you can trust and work alongside for a long time, without the additional commitment if your business isn’t ready for it.

Meet Your Obligations, Whatever Your Industry

It can be a minefield just to work out which regulations, award and requirements are applicable to your industry, your operation, your people.  We can assist you in developing an enterprise bargaining agreement if required. 

Working with our team of expert humans, we can help you wade through this confusion, translating highly complex language into policies, procedures and documentation that is helpful to everyone in the organisation. 

Meeting HR compliance standards isn’t just about fulfilling a legal obligation. HumanX’s approach is also to help your business prepare for the future, fostering quality employee relations in a stable, supporting and strong working environment. It’s something we believe that requires a human touch, rather than relying totally on a piece of HR software.

What the HumanX HR Compliance Service Looks Like


Let’s Talk

Whether you are aware of the major employment law changes and you just need someone to take it off your plate, or you’re looking for a full HR compliance audit and health check, the journey starts when you get in touch with one of our experts. 

From our first conversation, we’ll get to know your business and what you’re looking to achieve by working together. Remember, we are HR consultants and provide outsourced services, so we are pretty flexible to however you want to work. Of course, we can advise on what we think will best benefit your business.


Time to roll up our sleeves

HumanX’s HR compliance service will always start with one of our experts interrogating your current documentation, processes and established protocols. We will then make a list of all the obligations and laws that you are required to comply with. From here, we can go about writing new policies, evolving and moving on the current documentation so it is fit for purpose and suits your company. 

As part of this process, we will always be looking to understand your current and emerging risks. As HR & Employee Relations experts, we will advise you on how to mitigate those risks.


Regular updates & care

Depending on the arrangement agreed in stage one of the process, we can be on hand to help your business maintain HR regulatory compliance requirements, so you can get on with what you do best.  To do this, we proactively prompt you of any changes and updates to HR regulatory requirements and make the necessary changes to keep you compliant. 

It’s never a bad idea to have an expert at the end of the phone who you can consult with, if you ever need it.

What the HumanX HR Compliance Service Looks Like

Australian employment laws are complex and always changing. The onus on employers is continually increasing and penalties can be quite serious. Depending on the situation, organisations must be compliant with the Fair Work Act, National Employment Standards, applicable industrial instruments or awards. This requires specific expertise and an understanding of contemporary HR practices. Partner with an Outsourced HR firm such as HumanX who has all these capabilities under the one roof. 

A HR compliance audit is a smart decision at any stage of operation. HumanX HR’s experts can give you peace of mind that you are conducting business fairly and safely. We can conduct a full HR audit to ensure you’re building on solid foundations.

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.
