HR Health-checks

Overview

With continuous changes in employment law and the increasing need to keep up to date with ‘HR Best Practice’, some businesses are finding their time is spent reacting to HR situations rather than dedicating time to put in place proactive business solutions.

A HR Health Check can assist your business in identifying those areas where you are at risk and areas where changes are recommended to ensure you not only comply with legislation but improve your efficiencies and the effectiveness of you HR practices.

What is a HR Health Check?

The HR Health Check is a practical process that incorporates a 30 minute survey session with a Brismark representative to help assess the current ‘HR Health Status’ of your business.

Why Should I do it?

Businesses can often experience difficulties with certain elements of their people practices.  By conducting the HR Health Check we can identify why and when this is occurring, other potential people related risks and offer some practical solutions to get you back on the ‘HR Track’.

Who conducts the survey interview?

The HR Health Check Survey Interview is conducted by Brismark’s experienced HR Practitioner, with over 20 years experience in various industries within the HR profession.  Through this industry experience and knowledge of the market businesses, Brismark are confident they can provide you with some practical advice and assistance in implementing the recommendations.

What is the Wage/Salary Survey?

In conjunction with the HR Health Check, Brismark can also conduct a Market Site Wage/Salary Survey.  There are many salary survey’s in the marketplace, however they are not reflective of how roles operate in the market.  This will provide all businesses with a guide on the average wages/salaries of the various key roles in the Brisbane Markets.
