The People & Culture Office – A different kind of HR Consultant
Lᴇᴛs ʙʀᴇᴀᴋ ɪᴛ ᴅᴏᴡɴ
Who am I & what do I do?
I want to start with my mission statement – “To build capacity of small – medium enterprises through people & culture initiatives. We aim to be the leading provider of human resource solutions in the local Kalgoorlie-Boulder area, and the wider Australian business community, helping to create more successful, productive and high performance organisations.”
So in other words, I want to build your knowledge, and improve your tools and the resources you have at hand, to help you achieve business success through quality employees and employment practices. And I will do this by embedding HR solutions into your business framework
Buying a set of cookie cutter policies from a HR provider that has whacked your logo on there to make it feel individualised is not a HR solution – that’s an insurance policy to lull you into a sense of security should Fair Work come knocking.
Having a set of policies in a folder means diddly if you don’t understand the content, don’t follow them or aren’t being provided the support from an experienced HR professional to use them effectively in your business – someone who’s willing to share their knowledge to help you develop your skills in managing employee relations issues.
Additionally, a solution by its very definition is a means of solving a problem or dealing with a difficult situation. Are your set of generic policies really a solution?
Having trouble attracting employees? Would having a Recruitment Policy in place solve that? No, because a policy doesn’t tell you how your going to get there, just what you’re going to do once you’ve arrived.
A recruitment strategy, on the other hand, will assist with attracting employees because it’s designed as a plan of action. A recruitment strategy can identify how & where you can source candidates and what initiatives you can put in place to build your employer profile to make you more attractive to employees.
This is a HR Solution, and this is the true value of HR in your business.
And this is why when you become my client I don’t lock you into a contract, because the value I can offer over my competitors speaks for itself, and that’s why I’m a different kind of HR Consultant
