It’s February, which means it’s love month here at Workplace Central. Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples to look lovingly into each other’s eyes over a candlelight dinner anymore. It’s also a great time to remind your team why they’re important to you and your business. We’re six weeks in from the New Year, which means most people have forgotten their resolutions and are back into the daily grind. To get your team going again, here’s our top tips to celebrate the people in your business this Valentine’s Day:
It’s been a time of change for the Workplace Central team over the past year. We’ve had a long and proud history of providing employment solutions for local, small businesses, which we’re excited to transform in 2018.
You may have heard us mention previously that Queensland is introducing labour hire licensing, which we can now confirm, will commence on 16 April 2018. From this date, labour hire providers (like us) will have 60 days to lodge an application for a license.
We’ve recently been sharing the responses to some of the most common questions we get asked by our clients. We’ve put them together in an easy to manage collection, in case you’ve missed them so far! These responses are, of course all general advice, so if you’ve got a similar situation you need help with, give our team a call!
This is not your usual, look-at-this-great-design, list. We wanted to instead bring you ideas that don’t come with an exorbitant shop-fitting bill!
Do you set New Year’s resolutions? Most of us have in mind at least one New Year’s resolution, even if we don’t admit it to everyone. We know most of us will also fail to achieve success in any of these goals. By February, that commitment we made to ourselves, while surrounded by friends and fireworks, has largely disappeared.
The summer holidays are the perfect time for you to catch up on the books you thought you’d read through the year and never did. There are so many business and leadership books out there, we thought we’d do you a favour and share with you 5 books we think are worth more than just a flick through this summer.
It’s summer, your business is busy, and you could do with an extra set of hands or two. You decide to hire a junior employee to help out, as a casual employee and they enthusiastically start work. Because you’re a responsible employer, you realise there’s probably some additional steps you should take to manage your new junior employee, but where do you start?
As we approach the end of 2017, we’re excited about what the New Year will bring. This year has been a year of change for us at Workplace Central, and we know that we can bring our A-game for our clients and employees, to bring them great value, super-useful employment solutions, in the coming year. We’re sharing with you some of our ideas to kick-start 2018, we hope you’ll use them and see amazing success for the year ahead.
