HR Reminders

Let’s be honest… have you ever returned from a holiday and forgotten where you were up to on certain projects?  Don’t worry, it’s quite common!

With that in mind, we recommend writing some To Do Lists!

Step One – Set aside some time to think about what you need to do before the end of the year as well as what you need to do when you return next year.

Step Two – Write yourself an End of Year – To Do List

Step Three – Write yourself a New Year – To Do List

Trust me, your future self will thank you for taking the time to write yourself some reminders while they were fresh in your mind.

So… what sorts of things might you include on your To Do Lists?

– Ensure leave requests have been passed onto payroll for the Christmas & New Year break (if applicable)

– Schedule pay runs (and bonuses/rewards – if applicable)

– Consider tasks that need to be completed and wrapped up with 2020

– Consider tasks that need to be carried over to 2021

– Complete personnel file filing (i.e. leave requests, general filing, etc.)

– Close and archive personnel files for terminated employees

– Open personnel files for 2021 new starters

– Prepare for new starters (i.e. induction, desk arrangements, etc.)

– Remind employees to update personal information

– Audit personnel files

– HR planning

– HR workplace audit

– Run reports

– Review budgets for the new year

– Review and/or update company Policies and Procedures

– Conduct performance reviews, check in meetings, staff meetings, etc.

– Review employment contracts (maximum term, fixed term, contractor agreements, consultants, etc.) and action dates accordingly

– Ensure important information is backed up on servers/drives

– Set departmental goals

– And much more.

HR Business Assist

We understand that sometimes “you just don’t know what you don’t know”.  However, unfortunately, where Australian workplace laws are concerned, this type of excuse will not hold up.

Employers are expected to take reasonable steps to learn and understand their employer obligations concerning Australian workplace laws.  It has been found that some employers, managers and/or franchisors, may be held liable and face civil penalties if they have not taken reasonable steps to prevent breaches and contraventions of workplace laws from occurring (i.e. wage underpayments, industrial instrument non-compliance, etc.).

At HR Business Assist, we offer HR services through our three subscription tiers.  Our subscription tiers each include UNLIMITED generalist HR telephone and short email advice, to name a few of our inclusions.

One of the beneficial inclusions in our Premium and Partnered HR subscription tiers is an initial workplace audit.  Our workplace audit aims to assess your current HR practices and identify areas of risk.  Once these areas have been identified, it is our goal to work with you to minimise any associated risk.

View our website for the full inclusions or contact us on 1300 138 551 or for more information.

We’d be more than happy to hear from you and look forward to the opportunity to working with you throughout 2021.
