Once upon a time there were two girls called Nic striving for the ideal workplace culture. Yes, confusingly they are both called Nic. They also both had a passion for valuing people and helping businesses succeed. So they decided to create a great little business called Spice HR.
This story does not have a happy ending. But that is only because it hasn’t ended yet. Instead, it is still being told every day across Auckland in many businesses just like yours.

The Spice Story
It has been an exciting few years for us. We began Spice HR because we saw a real need to support and educate business owners who did not have an internal HR department.
There is so much to consider in a business that HR often gets put in the too hard basket. But, without good HR practices you can end up with unhappy staff, poor systems, and not complying with NZ Employment Law.
With more combined years of HR experience than we would like to admit, we knew that we had the skills to help business owners just like you. So that is what we decided to do.
The Spice Gals?
It is no coincidence that we call ourselves the Spice Gals.
We are not your ordinary HR team. Let’s face it, HR is not the most exciting topic in the world. We like to ‘Spice it up’ with a bit of interest and flavour. It does not have to be all about regulations and form filling. In fact, that is our least favourite part of HR too. We are far more concerned with the ideal workplace culture.
Sometimes we have been called into a business because the owner thinks there is ‘Something kinda funny going on’. We have had to say to a few managers, ‘Stop right now’, ‘Who do you think you are’? If you ‘Wannabe’ a true leader you might want to adopt some strategies from the ‘Spice World’ and ‘Say you’ll be there’ for your team.
Eeek, the cat is out of the bag. Now you know our secret! We are not only flavoursome – we may have also been known to occasionally sing along to the odd Spice Girls tune. But we promise we won’t bombard you with any more Spice Girl puns.
All jokes aside, we really are passionate about helping businesses perform at their best. And a business’ biggest asset is its people. It would not be able to run without them. So, we really do want to help Managers lead a team of happy and productive staff members.
Get ready, Spice has a third hidden meaning. This one is far more ingrained in us than flavour and catchy 90s song tracks…
S – Service
P – People
I – Ideas
C – Culture
E – Engagement
This is what Spice HR is really about. We truly believe that the secret to business success is getting the most out of your staff. And we cannot give you advice on how best to handle your HR until we know how your business ticks. That is why we take the time to know who your business is and what you stand for before we provide you with a tailored HR package.
We don’t want HR to be a scary thing for you. So, our process is simple. Tell us what is going on, where you are having problems, where you would like to improve and leave the rest to us. We can help as much or as little as you need us to. We know that every business is different and a one-size-fits-all solution is not going to work. Which is why we personalise our services specifically for your needs.
Creating The Ideal Workplace Culture
Your people are at the forefront of your business. They are the ones doing the doing and having the good ideas. To really let your people shine, you need to cultivate the right culture and encourage engagement. That way, each and every one of your staff will want to come to work every day. And when they are there, they will be productive and give everything they have.
That kind of ideal workplace culture does not happen by accident. But we can help you create it if it doesn’t exist at your workplace. Get in touch with us and we can really help your staff feel valued and work towards your common goals as a team.
