Company info.

A Human Agency (A-HA) is an agile, end to end HR dream team filled to the brim with a breadth and depth of HR capability.

The team can quickly mobilise, design solutions and partner with businesses large and small to implement, and make it stick. Everything you ever dreamed of from HR but thought you couldn’t find in one spot or afford.

A-HA believes HR is more than payroll and leave management. It is critical for agility, disruption, and growth. It’s vision and purpose is to intentionally design great places to work where people and profits both thrive.

Helping businesses create human friendly workplaces is at the core of all A-HA does. While this is known as HR, A-HA does it bit differently, focusing on five core areas: workplace culture, diversity + inclusion, development, capability + capacity; and providing businesses who need hands on help with a HR partner.

Katriina Tahka Bio.

Katriina is an expert in people, culture and creating great places to work for everyone.

For over 15 years, as an employment lawyer, she’s worked in diversity and inclusion in financial services, infrastructure and the legal profession; leading national talent, diversity and leadership portfolios. A ‘people person’ with a serious commercial spine, Katriina understands what it takes to make real, sustainable change happen. Her pivot into HR came when she decided to turn up the volume on diversity and inclusion, as a critical area she wanted to shine the light on. As the CEO and Founder of A-HA, A Human Agency, Katriina works with many businesses and their teams, touching the lives of many employees with her human-first approach to policies, structures, and business growth strategies.

Katriina’s goal is to build inclusive workplaces, helping them help them build workplaces where people and profits thrived side by side. Knowing that the success of a business truly hinges on the heath and wellbeing of its team, Katriina leads the way in her industry believing HR can and should be done differently.

She heads a number of industry-leading efforts, including a round table for members of the construction industry in Australia. This initiative invites CEOs and entrepreneurs in this field to come together and find ways of improving productivity while combating the work-related burnout epidemic that we are currently seeing in this sphere. Through open discussions, challenges are highlighted, shared, and as the professional with the authoritative knowledge o the subjects, Katriina equips these bsuinessowners with practical ways in which they can improve the mental and physical well-being of their teams without decreasing their bottom line.

Katriina also spearheads many of the female empowerment initiatives we see in Australia, running impactful campaigns around equality in the workplace and in society.
Passionate about women’s rights, diversity and inclusion, Katriina is always open to hearing new viewpoints, sharing her insights, and engaging in meaningful discussions.
