A well planned and considered Human Resources strategy lays the necessary framework to bridge your businesses strategic vision to your operational capability.

Many organisations don’t consider a Human Resources strategy in their business plan. They may have an organisation chart or an understanding of the qualifications required to operate. Yet, it is the human outputs of your team that define the capability of your business critical to your business plan.

It’s not always market conditions that may be frustrating your business objectives. The disconnect may be the misalignment between the objectives of the business plan and the skills of the personnel: their capability and their capacity.

Implementing a Human Resources strategy highlights the accountabilities to the required roles and enables targeted expectations.

The downsides of not having a plan are significant. Many business owners tell us of their frustration when having to deal with issues managing staff. They report feeling as though they are working backwards having to investigate, clarify and review which simply takes the focus away from todays goals and tomorrows milestones. Navigating those issues poorly can exacerbate the problem and even lead to matters in front of the court.

How do we do help you avoid that?

When we partner with your organisation, we review your business plan, structure and processes to assist with the development of your Human Resources strategy. Included is a capability audit to ensure your business goals aren’t beyond the capacity of your team, or out of step with your business plan and timeframes.

Importantly, we lay the foundations for your Human Resources Structure and work towards aligning your people and their skills toward the growth goals and market objectives of the business.

Industrial Relations

FWP Consulting specialises in EBA and Award interpretation and advice. We tailor our services to meet the needs of your organisation and can provide advice on employment contracts, performance management issues, the process of employee retrenchment and termination, and union negotiation practices.

Our team will clarify what your rights and obligations are as an employer, and introduce processes that will deliver fair, equitable, and productive workplaces.

Performance Management

Remember when you recruited that staff member? How impressive they were at interview and how excited you were to be gaining that level of skill into your team. And you used to be able to count on them for results right?

How did things get so wrong?

Performance management is a process that not all leaders are comfortable facilitating. FWP Consulting’s experienced Human Resources team can assist by offering conflict resolution services, performance appraisal programs, mediation services, industry-specific training, and mentoring services.

Whatever the problem, we can provide the necessary tools and support to achieve the performance levels you desire within your organisation.

Recruitment Services

It all starts here.

Finding that person with the mix you’re looking for. What skills and experience do they bring to the business? How will those skills grow the team and benefit the business? Does this person bring that “X factor” attitude we’re looking for? Do they fit our culture?

Hiring people can be time consuming and frustrating. And if the person or the recruitment process fails and you have to go back to market the disruption to your business can be significant.

Whether your business is in the market for a senior professional or recruiting at the ground level, Fair Workplace Consulting is experienced in helping you find that person. We take the time to understand your business and how the role fits into your agenda. The right person brings all the elements together and we make it our mission to find that “right” person.

We offer a fixed price for our services and can assist from start-to-finish or during a specific stage of the recruitment process depending on the needs of your organisation.

Succession Planning

A good succession plan will help your organisation transition smoothly into a new phase of its life cycle. By identifying risk in your human resources strategy, we can help your business plan for the future.

“Australian companies report on average 15% of their staff are currently leaving. Two-thirds (67%) of employers have seen an increase in staff turnover in the last three years”. (*Business Insider 2018)

FWP Consulting can help with the process of identifying and developing internal people with the potential to fill key business leadership positions in your organisation. We will work with your organisation to identify and increase the availability of experienced and capable employees that are prepared to assume these roles as they become available.

Change Management

Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, has been quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.”

Has the market dynamic in your industry changed? Has technology or consumer behaviour impacted your business? What is your business doing to flourish amidst all this ambiguity?

To meet the challenges of constant changes in market conditions, technology and customer management, businesses need to adapt and be more agile than ever.

The change process can often be a long and uncertain one, filled with constant struggles and resistance. FWP Consulting are adept in helping your business and your team to embrace the evolution of change. From preparation to implementation and beyond, we act as facilitators of that change.
