What We Do

Managing people across the employment lifecycle comes with different challenges depending on what’s happening in your business.

Wouldn’t it be a relief to have an HR partner for the long term to start out on the right foot and be there to call on when questions arise or something goes wrong?

Now Actually can become an extension of your team. How? We can help you embed HR processes and practices into business from day one. Give you general HR advice, for goals like building a better culture or how to develop your team’s skills and knowledge. Or even be there on the hard days to perform workplace investigations, advise on Fair Work claims, create performance management plans and more.

Build your HR knowledge with our Fact Sheets and articles

There’s so much you can learn about HR, but sifting through the legislation is time consuming and dense. It’s why we’ve created a series of Fact Sheets to loop you in on everything you need to know to stay compliant and keep doing right by your people.

  • I could not recommend Now Actually highly enough! As a small business, having a dedicated HR department is a huge expense, however, given this post-Covid environment and the ongoing changes, it’s absolutely critical to be across everything.  The team have been amazing in helping us navigate through the last two years, they’re always available and never complain about what must seem like my endless trivial questions.  I would definitely recommend their services to anyone who wants to implement HR best practice with the most up-to-date regulations.

  • With so much change happening within the hospitality industry, it was key for our restaurant group to engage human resources support. We struck gold finding Now Actually have not looked back. Highlights include, implementing structure into our business, simplifying our onboarding process, contract auditing to keep us up-to-date with hospitality ‘award rates’ and most importantly the on-hand support and advice in those challenging times, which do happen! Now Actually have positively changed our overall approach as leaders in the day-to-day management of our venues.

    Hayley Illing, General Manager – Carolina Group

  • Working with Now Actually to ensure our HR is not only appropriately managed but operating at a best practice level has given our business confidence to continue to grow. As a relatively young operation, investing in solid HR practices has been important to us from the very beginning. The incredible benefit of an outsourced HR model is that Now Actually have grown with us on the journey from a small team of three to now over 30 staff.

  • “Overall I am very happy and impressed with all that Now Actually offers. I genuinely feel they are part of the ASI family and I cannot see the difference had we hired someone internally. So, it’s a great outcome for ASI. Now Actually have been able to help us navigate the multiple changes in employment law over the last few years. Through the COVID period they were able to provide guidance and a framework to manage our COVID compliance. Now Actually were also involved in assisting us with our significant restructure. They were instrumental in providing the documentation to support that as well as strategic advice on how we go about it. One of the benefits of this was that in the restructure they were able get the Founder off the tools and into a role that enabled him to grow the business. And along the way they have been providing useful and meaningful updates that allow us to focus on the day to day running of the business!”

    Martin Camilleri, General Manager – ASI Electrics

  • “We worked with Now Actually to develop an employee contract. We are in a unique industry, meaning there was a significant amount of background work that was required on their behalf. The whole process was straight forward, and we got advice tailored to our business. We would recommend the Team at Now Actually. HR is one of those things that you know you need to do but put off doing. After biting the bullet, I engaged Now Actually HR to support our business. The team were professional helpful and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable knowing I had their support. Now Actually have been a great asset to our business supporting us with not only developing contracts, but also offering guidance and advice on other HR needs. Looking for a reputable HR firm, then look no further the Now Actually HR. They have helped us significantly in our business."

    Olivia Soha, Director – Uncovery Pty Ltd

  • “When we first engaged with Now Actually our business had a number of Contractors working within it. By working with Now Actually they were able to determine that our Contractors where in fact Casual Employees. Now Actually helped us transfer them across to new contracts and created the appropriate policies and procedures that we needed to support our growing business.“
