SYDNEY - April 26, 2023 - PRLog -- As a HR agency (, it's great to know that HumanX are setting the best example for Australia's businesses, as they win a Smart50 Workplace Award 2023. The HR experts won in the Mental Health Support category for their impressive dedication to their people and tailoring their policies to the needs of their industry,

The Smart50 Workplace list was developed alongside Employment Hero to recognise organisations that are carving out new ways of working in Australia - and doing it successfully! Winners are recognised for their innovation and strategic approaches to hiring and retaining their teams, a struggle that has been well documented nationwide, as 70% of employers are more concerned about individuals leaving their organisation in 2023 than in 2022.

Leane Faulkner, a guest judge and mental health advocate in the workplace has said of HumanX "Can i work here please? Wow!!"

After a 6 month trial, HumanX have successfully rolled out a 9-day working fortnight at FULL pay.

HumanX are leading outsourced HR specialists, consulting and partnering with major companies across Australia. The scope of their work varies greatly, from developing HR policies and company culture as good as their own to supporting and strategising on major restructures or migrations.

The work for the HumanX team is different every day. Founders Hich Nasr, Tahnee McWhirter and Kirbie McWhirter recognise that the role of a HR can be emotionally demanding as well as constantly shifting gear. This was a key motivator for developing their own, bespoke guidelines and expectations around how their team could take breaks and care for their mental health. HumanX are major advocates for building a positive workplace experience. They believe the best way to do this always involves a unique approach. HR cannot be one-size-fits-all.

HumanX are another Australian success case for shortening working hours, as they approve a 9 day working fortnight for all full time employees. They are amongst the first private companies to offer this way of working. It is incredibly unique for SME organisations to offer such flexibility and rewards, especially at full pay.

One of the founders of HumanX HR, said of their policy "Our mental health policy exists to educate our team about the symptoms and signs of declining mental health in themselves and their colleagues"

"[The package] includes paid time off, alteration to workloads, counselling and support services across diverse suppliers from LGBTQI+-specific to pastoral care.
