Your most important assets are your people

But it can be difficult balancing the needs of the business and its people because:

  • There’s no in-house HR team (or person)
  • It’s a struggle to keep a business owner mindset
  • Motivating people is a challenge
  • Recruitment is time-consuming and doesn’t get the result you want
  • They’re not a development or training expert
  • Interpreting Modern Awards is confusing
  • It’s hard to keep up with all the legal changes
  • There’s significant risk if a bad decision is made
  • culture shift is needed but you don’t know where to start
  • You need specialist advice
