What you need to change now to be a great leader
The best leaders are not technical experts. They don’t have to have the answers...
The HR world is evolving and so are we. Humankind (formerly HR Shop) 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
Our emotions rule every single one of us, however, I’m continuously surprised at how often emotions are ignored in the workplace. It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that the emotional state of your employees is likely to be one of, if not the biggest, contributor to productivity.
