Q. Why do businesses outsource their employment requirements & partner with Workplace Central?

Q. What if I already have someone that processes payroll?
A. That is ok as he/she can still be an integral part of your business and potentially we can free up this resource’s time to focus on the business or other tasks. There’s much more to workforce management than just payroll, so you’d also need to consider your need for access to an HR manager and WHS manager, for example.
Q. Can I just get you to check my employee agreements?
A. We can certainly review these agreements for a client who utilises our packages. Our business model supports continuous engagement with our clients, so we don’t ‘just’ do one-off services. If this is definitely all you need, we have partners we recommend for these services.

A. We set you up with our easy to use, cloud based software developed for businesses just like yours.

Q. How do you engage with my workplace?
A. We engage with you and your team in a way that you are comfortable with, however we do have to conduct regular appraisals and like to visit to invest and understand your business and how we can complement you and your team best. An ongoing partnership is beneficial rather than a once off tick.
