Get to Know Us
We are a tight knit team of 2 complementing schools of thought. Marcel Schwendeler (MBA/HR Masters) and Christina Moscovis (MClinPsych) have combined their strengths to deliver the service that is Functional HR. Drawing from a strong organisational and technical background, Marcel has a unique talent in foresight and strategy. Christina’s neuroscientific approach with human behaviour and performance coaching accelerates individual outcomes and organisational wellbeing. After many long discussions, they arrived at the need to deliver a service to those who needed it the most... the small to medium players. Marcel and Christina are intimately connected with the wider business community in Newcastle NSW and draw upon this community to deliver perspective, experience and a cultural understanding of business in the Hunter Region.
THIS IS ABOUT
Why we do what we do
OUR MISSION is to make business owners feel excited about running their business again. We want to guide you on all HR related projects, set functional HR strategies that are tied to your business goals and objectives. Functional HR wants to take the stress out of business management to give back that competitive edge.
We've learned that the main challenge SME owners face is managing the desired outcomes from their employees. Ironically, it's our own human nature that creates much of the stress in running a business, and owners are usually unaware of the broader functions of human behaviour.
