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.

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.

Sarah Sheridan, Deputy CEO | Co-Founder – Clothing The Gaps

“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.

“When we first engaged with Now Actually our business had a number of Contractors working within it.

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.

“As a NDIS provider in NSW there have been significant changes to our industry throughout the COVID pandemic. Having to navigate these changes whilst running a business is tricky. Since engaging with Now Actually I have been able to focus my attention on where it needs to be in business knowing that the HR strategy is taken care of. Just when we thought we could see the light, new changes to the Modern Award that we pay under were introduced. The change to the SCHADS award are complex, but I’m grateful that I’ve had Now Actually supporting me through this. I would highly recommend their services.
