How Your Business Does Onboarding Is How It Does Everything

Posted by Mathew French on 12 December 2017

It's that time of year, when everyone is thinking about new beginnings. The impending new year offers an opportunity to hit reset, course correct or take a completely new direction. Starting a new job is a significant new beginning and for new starters, how your business does Onboarding is a reflection of how you do everything. Research indicates that approximately 22 percent of employee turnover takes place during the first 45 days of employment at an average cost of replacement between 16 and 20% of that employee’s salary. That is a significant productivity and dollar cost in and of itself, not to mention the disruption it causes to the rest of your employees and the drain it places on your HR team. So can your organisation onboard new employees in a manner that inspires them to stay with you long-term and become productive, cohesive, integral members of the team as soon as possible?

Top 5 Behaviours of Successful HR Managers

Posted by Mathew French on 7 November 2017

If your business strives to be a great place for your employees to work, it is essential that you have a leadership team that Employees trust implicitly and are willing to follow. In some ways, the HR representative on your leadership team needs to walk the talk and role model behaviours, not just for your Employees, but also for the others on your leadership team. It would be fair to say that HR Managers are responsible not only for providing a model for the leadership team to emulate, but also for ensuring that the leadership team follows that lead and provides a cohesive example, in words and action, for the entire business. Historically, the top behaviours that HR Managers need to succeed looked very different to the way they look today. In a world where trust is at an all time low, and technology disruption at an all time high, which behaviours are the ones HR Managers most need to model?

Roadmap For HR Managers in an Organisational Restructure

Posted by Mathew French on 31 August 2017

We're currently doing 2017 edits of some of our most popular Blog posts.

Key Metrics You Need in Your HR Reports - 2017 Edition

Posted by Mathew French on 22 August 2017

We recently discovered a fantastic article on LinkedIn that outlined 70 HR metrics you should be measuring in your business. One of our most popular blog posts ever is a 2013 post 'Key Metrics You Need in Your HR Reports,' so after stumbling upon this great article, we thought we'd do a 2017 edit. What was also interesting in this article is that the author has offered for free, a breathtaking array of excel spreadsheets related to all manner of calculating, tracking and reporting HR metrics. Very generous, very useful AND in 2017, a total waste of time AND money (money that you would pay an employee to input and update the information to provide results for all the metrics). You might think that is a pretty mean thing to say, but having said this before, I’m going to say it again. If you’re still using excel spreadsheets to calculate your HR metrics or manage your HR processes, you’re living in the dark ages AND wasting precious time AND money. Today’s HR platforms give users the capacity to access these types of metrics at the click of your mouse – no updating of spreadsheets required. There. I’ve said it, now let’s take a look at the categories of key metrics you need in your HR reports – 2017 edit.

HR Software: Better Human Contact Through Values Alignment

Posted by Mathew French on 8 August 2017

Whether your business is in Local Government, Aged-Care, Manufacturing, Retail, Hospitality, Not for profit or Financial Services, there are key areas that each of these industries will benefit from in terms of HR automation. Different industries require similar automation and there are generic HR tasks across all business types that can be automated in a standardised manner. If manual, repetitive tasks haven't been automated within your organisation, then you run the risk of your people spending all their energy on such tasks and not having the impetus left to work in a way that contributes to human contact, which is what builds engagement and enhances culture.
