Who is Quantum?

Quantum Human Resources (Quantum HR) was envisaged in 2019 when Elisia Coetzee and Rob Sheppard combined their two successful HR consultancies in a merger that capitalised on their experience and reputation for trusted HR support in Australia.

Our extensive hands-on experience managing HR for growing businesses, global projects and the internal HR function for large management teams, means Quantum HR can translate best practice HR into any size organisation.

Our approach

Quite simply, we work as a member of your team to provide a reliable and professional outsourced HR partner for when you have ‘people problems’.

Our model of ‘human centred HR’ then recognises that people are at the centre of everything we do in business.

Compliance (e.g. meeting employer laws) are the first elements to ensure are met so you have solid foundations of employment to build upon. Otherwise you’ll always be looking over your shoulder! For example, minimum wages, ensuring flat rates are better off overall and ways to manage record keeping requirements.

Protection is the framework of tools and resources (and vision) you provide to support your people to work and grow. ‘Company Rules’ such as how to behave or clear processes to undertake work help protect you and your employees.

Performance is the culture you develop to coach, align and develop your people – knowing this is aligned to the company vision and mission.

This could simply be creating robust contracts through to strategic HR planning that supports your business plan. Either way, Quantum HR have the knowledge and experience to help you.

We received an extremely rapid response at short notice for a quick resolution to a difficult and sensitive HR issue that we wouldn't have been able to resolve without Quantum's professional assistance.
