Knowledge for employment empowerment
FOR SUCCESSFUL GROWTH IT IS VITAL TO KNOW HOW TO BUILD THE RIGHT TEAM OF PEOPLE. IN BUSINESS, FINDING AND MANAGING YOUR EMPLOYEES CAN SOMETIMES BE A MINEFIELD OF LEGALITIES AND COMPLIANCE. EASTCOAST HR HAVE FLEXIBLE SOLUTIONS TO HELP YOU NAVIGATE EMPLOYMENT RELATIONS WITH SPECIALISED TRAINING OPTIONS RELEVANT TO YOUR BUSINESS.
At EastCoast HR Group we have a philosophy of People Investment. We believe that if you are informed you are empowered. We advocate that when clients and business owners have the relevant compliance information at hand, it ensures that they can then develop sound HR systems and platforms for business growth but also be compliant, minimising the risk of costly adverse action.
There are so many compliance obligations and responsibilities employers must adhere to – from industrial relations through to work health and safety legislation – it can be a minefield to navigate. The Sunshine Coast is also the home of small business with many of us required to wear multiple hats, so it’s easy to see how our systems and sometimes compliance can be neglected.
The only way to provide yourself with this information is to be educated and informed through ongoing professional development.
Don’t fear – help is here! We’ve listened to you, our clients and business owners of the Sunshine Coast. We know you want to be informed about employment relations in a way that is practical, easily applied but most importantly, relevant to your business operations. We also know that you don’t want to have to travel to Brisbane to find it.
The workplace, the methodology of work and the need for multi-skilled workers is rapidly defining the world of work in Australia and we have to be ready.”
In making your training investment wisely we also know, that it is essential to choose the most in-depth and value-added training available. It gives us great pleasure to announce our exciting new practical workshops around employment relations compliance – The Employment Relations Masterclass Series.
Our Employment Relations Masterclasses are facilitated by our senior consultants who are specialists in their areas of expertise and who can provide you with high value, relevant content, real business scenarios and case studies, and practical result focused outcomes.
Participants will enjoy a small intimate training environment with class numbers limited to six participants and each master class shall include a 15 minute networking opportunity to engage and interact with likeminded business owners and managers.
Whether you are a novice or have some experience in employee relations, we have the workshop content to suit.
Unfair dismissal claims and internal employee conflicts are very common and are an incredibly problematic issue for many businesses on the Sunshine Coast, says HR practitioner Michalle Faulkner and managing director for EastCoast Human Resource Group.
“At EastCoast we support many clients who find themselves at risk, often stressed and flustered in the aftermath of an employee termination to support them in preparing their employer response to Fair Work because of claims by those employees of an absence of procedural fairness being used in their dismissal,” Mrs. Faulkner said.
“When you have to deal with claims such as this, it eats up the limited and valuable resources you have – time, money and energy – which would otherwise have been better utilised in other areas of your business.”
The EastCoast consulting team have also identified a number of other issues such as providing support and information to employers in the areas of managing workplace mental health matters, recruitment and retention, workplace investigations as well as good employee relations management practices – as a must-know for employers.
‘The workplace, the methodology of work and the need for multi-skilled workers is rapidly defining the world of work in Australia and we have to be ready. Employers need to be aware of the industrial relations and practices that govern employment if they want their business to avoid costly legal action in the future,” Mrs Faulkner said.
“We want to share some of that knowledge and help other small businesses like ourselves, navigate the sometimes confusing workplace and industrial relations requirements so they at least have a heightened awareness by understanding the basic statutory requirements and their legal responsibility so they know the pitfalls to look out for.”
