Here at Apex HR, we believe having a clear vision in life is important.
Ours is to reinvent HR and to humanise workplaces. We believe we can build better workplaces by putting people and culture first. We should place the safety and respect of people at the heart of the business. It should be wired in as standard. This should not be a privilege, but a basic human right. Sadly, in our experience for too many people this is not the case.
Working with others, we commit to do something about this. We have a vision where authentic people-centred leaders lead their businesses and this becomes a force for good in the world. We can create ethical work environments which improve the lives of the people impacted by our activities. There are many benefits and superior financial returns or business, with no negatives. This is not a soft option.
Why would all businesses not want more human-centric approaches to HR ? Why would all businesses not want to humanise their workplaces ?
We have to admit, the vision, whilst exciting also does scare us a little bit.
To make our vision a reality means setting some big, audacious goals. It can feel overwhelming when there are so many organisations where there is a lack of care for the people working with them. It can be a challenge to overturn decades of HR dogma and rhetoric. Too many people have no choice but to work in toxic workplaces which damages their physical and mental health.
The safe option is to accept this cannot be changed. But it is changing, and gathering momentum all the time. Like-minded people all around the world are drawn to this message and are working to embed humanity into business. We have connected with so many inspiring people around the world. We are working together to makes a real difference, one conversation and one organisation at a time.
All journeys do have to start with a single step. What step will you take today to put people first, and build more human-centred workplace ?
