All the basic things you need before you hire someone.
- Job Descriptions
A job description is a powerful tool used for a number of things including communicating job expectations, focusing recruitment efforts and managing employee performance.
We can assist and help analyse your positions and then create simple, yet effective job descriptions for your organisation.
At MacPac HR we believe that when it comes to recruitment our integrity and reputation is based on finding someone better than you would find yourself.
The cost of recruitment for any business is high, so leave it to us, the experts, who will find the right fit both technically and culturally.
- Policy / Industrial Framework
Creating a simple, yet effective handbook is a great way to protect an organisation from litigation as well as put staff members at ease by spelling out in positive terms the company’s policies and practices.
It provides the framework for how you will manage your team and can aid in setting the cultural tone by setting our the expected behaviours as well.
We can also help with Award interpretation or any other employee relations questions you may have.
Give workers a proper introduction to their team and duties.
So you have a new team member – now what? Don’t throw them in the deep end. Help orientate and socialise your new staff with a structured Induction program that suits your business.
It is the start of their development with you and will really say a lot about how you treat your staff.
- Workplace Health & Safety (WHS)
Make health and safety a real priority in your business. Whether you are working in a high risk environment (like a warehouse) or a low risk environment (like an office) you and your staff are still going to require some kind of workplace safety management plan.
- Performance Management
Essential in retaining and engaging your team is the manner in which you approach performance management. In giving and receiving feedback, and having everyone being open to the process you will have happier, more engaged and satisfied team members.
Whether you need help in reviewing your processes and practices, or require some coaching to help you get even better at performing this very important role more effectively, we can help.
Invest in your staff and watch the business results that follow.
- Training Needs Analysis (TNA)
In today’s economy with its rapidly changing environment, any business that isn’t investing in development for their team will fall behind. But just where do you spend your money.
The easy answer is spend the money where you need to and in order to make that decisions, you need to identify where your training gaps are. Contact us for more information.
- Leadership & Development
Your staff are your best asset and providing high quality learning and development programs will increase morale which in turn will lead to less absenteeism and staff turnover, resulting in a healthier bottom line.
Create a challenging environment in which your people continue to learn and grow, and watch the impact this has across your business.
If you are committed to providing an environment in which employees are adequately equipped to achieve their career and professional development needs then you may also look at supporting external studies through an Education Assistance Policy.
Generally upon receipt of an application, approval is generally on a discretionary basis. Let us help you put together the right framework for your business.
Energy is well spent retaining quality staff members.
Every company needs a strategic reward system for employees – and it isn’t always monetary.
A winning system should recognise and reward two types of employee activity – performance and behavior.
Contact us for assistance in building your program.
In order to develop an effective recognition program, the business must be sure to separate the program from the system of rewarding employees. This ensures a focus on recognising the efforts of employees.
Recognition has a timing element. It must occur so that the performance or behaviour being recognised is still fresh in the mind.
Recognition can take a variety of forms so call us now to help get your program in place.
Knowing how much to pay your people is essential if you are going to retain them.
Do you have a remuneration strategy? Are you just going to pay the minimum award wage? Maybe you can structure packages that are more attractive so that those looking for work see you as a viable option.
Are your staff and customers having a good experience?
- Climate Surveys
Are your staff happy – engaged? How do you know? Maybe you should test the waters?
Climate or engagement surveys when implemented effectively are a great way to understand how your team feel about their work, and the organisation.
But – be prepared to work to improve once you have the results otherwise why ask for feedback in the first place.
- Succession Plans
Who are your next leaders? Where do they come from? What are you doing to develop them?
Developing the next level of leaders from within your organisation is critical and will give you a real advantage over your competition. Not only will you retain all that experience and knowledge, you will ensure they remain motivated and challenged and it won’t cost you significant money to replace someone at that level.
So how effective is your current leadership group? People don’t leave organisations – they leave their Managers.
360 Feedback is an effective way of monitoring the performance of your leaders and enables you to create the right development programs to ensure they can continue to develop and improve in their roles.
This sensitive process requires thoughtful management.
- Exit Interviews
If you don’t know why you are losing people then you are missing out on valuable information to help you drive performance and productivity.
An effective exit interview will provide you with both qualitative and quantitative information that can help you with identifying problem areas in your business.
These are sensitive discussions and should be handled confidentially and skilfully in order to obtain constructive feedback and relevant information.
There are times in any organisations life cycle that they need to review their operations and this may lead to a decision to reduce headcount.
Handling this process so it meets legislative requirements as well as effectively managing the personal side to ensure that individuals are treated with empathy and respect will create a better outcome in what is always a very difficult situation.
- Exiting Staff
The life cycle of any employee ends with either them or the company deciding it is time to part company.
This can be a difficult process, and it is important that all parties maintain a high level of professionalism. Being open and honest and following all documented procedures will ensure all parties are treated fairly and can make decisions for themselves along the way.
