Outsourced HR teams in Sydney that challenge the way you think
Organisations are getting creative and often existential when naming their HR function, trying to re-brand or better define human resources. Progressive business leaders are re-thinking HR to move away from the humans-as-resources model, to a human-centric model.
We challenge that again: HR today is about curating the experience of work for humans, designing work to allow humans to live and grow and achieve in an organisational ecosystem that minimises tensions and optimises employee engagement.
HumanX will challenge the way organisations think about their teams and how they can be lead, supported and nurtured.
Our core values drive everything we do
It is essential that an outsourced HR team integrates into the culture, structure and workflow of your business. Just like finding and selecting the talent that suits your business, finding and selecting the right human resources partner is critical to success. Our team are experienced outsourced HR experts operating in Sydney, so we know that the best relationships have a shared understanding of the organisation, culture, values and leadership personality.
Shaping positive spaces
To get started, get in touch and have a chat with one of our experts. We can have an initial conversation around which areas we can support or what challenges your business is currently facing. Throughout this conversation it’s great to get to know your values; we’d love to tell you about ours, too.
HR audit or diagnostics
You may not actually know exactly which services you need support with, just that there’s a lack of HR presence in your business. Or you might be looking for guidance on a specific issue, that’s actually a symptom of a wider HR concern. This is actually quite common, particularly with small to medium sized businesses in Sydney. We can kick off with a HR audit. This can evaluate the maturity of the HR in your organisation, identify risk and provide key recommendations on making a positive impact.
Let’s work together
After some initial sessions, our partners will know what HumanX are capable of and the benefits and insights we can bring to your operation. Together, we will have determined if we are working together as an outsourced HR department, on a project, or on an ongoing consultancy basis to support your existing team. Naturally, these relationships all look a little different, but we will both know our roles and share a common goal - whether that’s modernising your approach to performance management, navigating a tricky time like an investigation or working together to manage an organisational restructure with a mission of consciously curating culture and improving engagement.
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.
