Whats hot in HR with HRBS
Hello

What’s hot right now is the topic of employee retention. Remember in the pre-GFC days the issue of employee retention was at the top of the boardroom agenda? Well it’s creeping back on there again. Our friends at U & U Recruitment Partners tell us that the job market has really picked up, meaning more jobs and less talent in some areas. What that means for us employers, is that we need to put some thought into identifying ‘who’ are our ‘keepers’ and ‘how’ do we retain them?

Here at HRBS headquarters we are pretty excited about our new HRBS Membership program which provides a ‘bolt on’ HR Department for our clients, and HR Hotline for discounted annual fee, with lots of free templates, and a complimentary HR Audit. Find out more under the events section of this newsletter or on our website.

Happy HR !
Tina

There's NO chance you aren't complying with the award requirements, I mean, you pay her at least $10k more than you have to? Right? Right? WRONG!

Read on to find out why paying above the award does not automatically mean that you are complying with the Award requirements...
