KXBbwThe Australian Institute of Company Directors released its Director Sentiment Index for the second half of the year on 1 December 2016.  One of the headline findings is that, despite greater global uncertainty, 34% of directors expect their business to increase both levels of staffing and investment.  Business confidence among directors has increased by ten index points and is at its highest since 2013.

When a business increases its staffing levels, it also adjusts all manner of systems and processes. The risks to the business associated with its employees increase.  At Everingham Solomons, we hold a comprehensive database of employment documents that can be tailored to the needs of your business to assist you to manage risks around the employer/employee relationship.

For example, we can set your business up with template engagement letters for casual, part time, full time, Modern Award and non-Award staff. We have a comprehensive and robust employment contract for managerial and professional staff.  We can assist with agreements for your independent contractors as well.

You may be struggling for time to document your own policies and procedures for your business. We have over 50 template policy documents from which you can choose: Anti-Discrimination and EEO; Code of Conduct; First Aid; Internet Email and Computer Use; Personal Grievance; Work Health & Safety; Workplace Bullying, and so on.

When you need to write to your employees about various issues, you need to follow certain steps and use appropriate language. For example, in show cause or warning letters, letters for the recruitment process, letters regarding the taking of various forms of leave, and the like.  We can provide you with a set of correspondence documents covering these matters and others.

We invite you to make an appointment for January 2017 to see us about your employment document needs and start the year on the right track. Everingham Solomons can tailor a document package for the needs of your business because Helping You is Our Business.
