HR Advice For NZ Employers
HR Advice on
Whatever the size or shape of your employment-related problems, our team of consultants can help with customized solutions that work.
While most of our clients come to us with an acute employee problem, which we are happy to help with, the main goal of introducing HR processes in your business is to create a productive working environment with Gold Standards for performance, and solid business processes – where employees enjoy contributing positively to business growth within the framework supplied by you.
Our job is to put you firmly in charge of your business growth, removing hurdles & roadblocks, enabling you to shine a clear and bright light on the business growth plan.
On this page, you will find a list of the employment issues commonly raised when employers engage us to help them with their HR concerns, but we are able to help with all facets of HR – and even to take care of your HR for you as an external partner if you would like us to.
You will be surprised at how quickly and easily things start to change for the better. Let’s chat.
Correct, compliant HR policies & processes are key to employer risk management. Whether it is having compliant, up to date employment agreements, succession planning for key skills or handling a performance related matter – employer risk management is the top priority.
We recommend that you have a discussion with one of our consultants about your immediate situation from a risk point of view and that we move forward from there. If you do not already have policies & procedures in place within every facet of your business – and you have employees, your level of risk is higher than it should be.
Correct processes need to be followed at every step of the employment journey. Often employers are simply not aware of current requirements (and the requirements shift). Staying on top of all employment requirements is something that you should really consider outsourcing – this is a cost effective and practical solution from every point of view.
When you start outsourcing any element of your business, you start to see business growth – simply because you are employing expertise in key areas of your business.
HR is no exception. In fact, it is one of the most important aspects of the business to get right – effective HR is the basis of business productivity and growth.
From having correct, compliant processes (automatically updated as the world of employment legislation changes continually around us), to high-level advice around the skills you will need for growth, risk monitoring for all aspects of a business – including succession gaps, training gaps, identifying future business requirements before they are required.
Every aspect of HR can be progressively outsourced when and as you are ready. We recommend employers start with our online HR Software EMS Hub, which automates all your HR processes in one place (and is kept 100% up to date for compliance).
EMS Hub is a cost-effective way of bringing HR policies & procedures in line with where they need to be and removing a large amount of time-consuming admin from your desk, significant worry from your head, and moving forward with business planning & growth.
When you start thinking about your team as a business resource – with valuable insight and experience in your business, you will start considering ways of retaining and developing team members.
One of the best things employers can do it listen to what employees are saying, investing in how they are feeling and communicating with them regularly about their development within your business.
The positive impact on team engagement will surprise you – just a little time invested each day in seeing things from the team’s point of view and responding to how they are feeling is a huge investment in the future of your business.
