The HR world is evolving and so are we. Humankind creates tailormade solutions for your organisation and – more importantly – the people who bring it to life. HR with a personal touch. We’re passionate about the future of work, and want to help New Zealand build the best workplaces in the world.
Managing people is a complex task for business leaders. Due to the growing diversity of business ventures, our seasoned consultants have developed adaptable HR strategies – relevant to a variety of sizes and situations. In four years, we’ve experienced intense growth – we’re now working with businesses across New Zealand to build market-leading employee value propositions and optimise leadership potential.
We believe in working with – rather than for – businesses. Our size allows us to form close working relationships and immerse ourselves in the culture of your workplace. We are a combination of generalist and highly-specialised HR experts, and our fresh perspectives are highly valued by our varied client base.
What makes us different to every other living being on earth is that we crave purpose. An order to life and a meaning to our existence. We are Humankind. We are the difference between going to work, and loving it. The difference between saying something, and meaning it. The difference between settling for the status quo, and conquering more. Between living life, and living purposefully. We are not simply human beings, we are humankind.
We re-define, innovate, keep ahead. We seize collaborative technology and new trends. We lead by example as much as by ideas.
We welcome, support, engage. We display humility and focus on relationships. We are remembered for our positive experiences.
We are collaborative, holistic, all encompassing. We share our knowledge and embrace development. We are greater than the sum of our parts.
We trust, rely, support. We give each other the benefit of the doubt and don’t judge. We do what’s right even when no one is looking.
We aim high, crave more, drive business. We challenge constructively and add significant value to bottom lines. We are commercially savvy.
We believe that you’re only as good as the people around you – working with us means working with all of us. We are confident that the depth and diversity of our experience provides the innovative solutions you need to thrive. Imagine what you could accomplish with the whole of Humankind on your side?Meet The Team
Mental Health Awareness week is 23-29 September this year. With so much of our lives affected by what happens at work, we’re excited to share our thoughts about supporting wellbeing in the workplace. In this post we describe how we recently refreshed our own Wellbeing Philosophy using Employee Centred Design.
For decades, employers have screened prospective employees with personality tests, aptitude tests and logic skills, trying to find that perfect fit for their team. And we’ve been debating the effectiveness of all these tests for just as long.
Having a human voice within your organisation is critical for strong culture but also for attracting top talent. This means being clear about your values and communicating them with intention so that your team can behave in ways that contribute to your success, without you having to remind them.
This is the first article in a series of 3 to be published over coming weeks, sharing my thoughts on how we can make the concept of ‘Employee Experience’ something that has meaning and value. If you’ve been thinking that it seems like it’s just a new wrapper on the same old ‘employee engagement chocolate bar,’ these are the articles for you!
There is increasing awareness amongst employers of the importance of employee experience (EX); seeing their organisation through the eyes of the employee. In this guide, we explore how inappropriate behaviours such as bullying and harassment affect employee experience.
“Humankind were independent and their process was really rigorous and robust, which really resonated with us. The feedback from the EX Awards programme was also great in identifying areas we could work on. I would recommend it to everyone.”
“Everyone in the team is mission-driven. Our users are part of the journey we go on, so when we win awards like this, they feel like they’ve played their part both internally and externally.”
