Industry Member

With a constantly changing employment landscape, keeping up to date with your obligations can be difficult. We work in partnership with you, bringing our wealth of experience in Human Resources across a diverse range of industries, getting to know you and what will work best in your environment,

We can set you up and leave you to it, or provide ongoing advice on retainer, letting you focus on running your business, it’s up to you. Human Resources has never been so easy, with Strawberry Seed Consulting.

Job Descriptions

We can develop formal Position Descriptions for roles in your organisation.  We work directly with you and your employees to capture the responsibilities for each unique role.  We can also partner with your management team to set KPI’s that reflect the strategic and financial goals of your business.

First HR Planning and Organisational Design

Organisations are living organisms that need to grow and adapt to their environment.  We can assist you to take a step back and assess if your organisational structure is meeting the immediate and long term needs of your business. From organisational restructure and job design through to resource and succession planning, we can work with your management team to strategically plan for the future.

 Award Benchmarking

If you are not sure which Modern Award your employees are covered by, how do you know that you are paying them correctly? We can review the roles of new or existing employees in your business to identify which award they are covered by and then provide an assessment of their current salary to ensure that their salary meets a BOOT (Better Off Overall Test). We will also point out the hidden traps that can trip you up in some Awards.

 Market Remuneration Benchmarking

You want to be competitive in the market to attract and retain the best employees but it is not always easy to know where you sit against competitors in your industry. We can benchmark the salaries of specific positions against a number of national and industry Salary Surveys and provide you with a detailed report on where you sit in comparison. We can also help you to set up a detailed Salary Structure for your business for all positions.

Policies and Procedures

Do your company policies reflect the use of Social Media? Are you aware of your responsibilities to your employees in the prevention of bullying? The employment landscape is constantly evolving with changes in legislation and case law making it difficult to stay on top of our obligations as employers.

We can work with you to audit your current policies and assess where you may be at risk. We can build beyond the basics and look at policies that reflect the complexities of your business. We provide you with comprehensive policies and procedures that are easy to understand and assist you in the roll out to your staff.

Employment Contracts

The introduction of the Fair Work Act (2010) and new Modern Awards have resulted in many businesses finding themselves with employment contracts that are referencing incorrect awards and redundant legislation that may be placing them at significant risk. We can tailor an employment contract to meet the specific needs of your business and ensure that you are fully compliant with all relevant employment laws.

Exit Interviews

When an employee leaves, it is the perfect opportunity to ask them for some honest feedback about their experience working for your organisation. Our online Exit Survey can be emailed directly to your exiting employee and completed on any smart phone, tablet or PC. You will receive a one page report  on their feedback.  We can even customise the survey with your branding and specific questions that are relevant for your business.
