They work to promote the best and most Fair Working conditions for all people, monitoring all organisations big or small in ensuring they abide by Australian Wide workplace regulations.

Compliance is Crucial

Most businesses in Australia are covered by Australian Employment Laws like the Fair Work act and Fair Work regulation’s. If you are a businesses who chooses not to comply with these laws, regulations and employment standards you are at risk of huge fines, and legal fees.

Fair Work inspectors can enter your business at any time during working hours if there is reason to believe you are not remaining complaint or up to date with minimum employee standards or regulations.

What Have We Done In The Past?

We partnered with an engineering firm a little under 12 months ago. At the point we partnered with them they had just gone through a company transition leaving the Director unsure of how to proceed.

The first thing we did was create an anonymous Engagement Survey to gain the staff’s view on everything from communication, management, remuneration and company improvements. From these results we highlighted some key areas of need, these were clearer communication, clearer training and development and team culture. Since then, we have been able to implement: weekly team meetings with all staff so that everyone is across all company projects and open up the communication channels, additionally each team member has a monthly performance check in with the Director to help keep things on track and provide a formal opportunity to seek support and set goals. We have then conducted a skills training analysis where we were able to benchmark the minimum requirements of each position in the company and compare individuals to their role. This highlighted not only individual training needs but also companywide training needs. We put together individual training plans to help the team grow.

As part of this process new position descriptions were devised to give each person clear guidance on where their position sat within the organisation and what the expectations were of them.

We have just completed the first ever annual reviews for the company where each team member had a really positive experience and were confident in their role and their progression within the organisation.

The processes we have been able to put in place have helped the organisation grow from an uncertain future to a very strategically planned future where we have been able to plan to expand the business offerings and capacity in line with individual growth

Summary
