Talent management is crucial for the success of your business.
So how can you apply the best talent management processes to your company - and make the most of your high-performing talent? The international SAP Success Factors HR Software Group recommends implementing a strategic talent management plan that enables organisations to become ‘proactive’ rather than ‘reactive’.
As part of the plan, leaders are encouraged to identify the most important skills for their employees: concentrating mainly on key developmental areas.
Annual Performance Reviews have long been an integral part of Human Resource operations. However, many of today’s organisations are now ditching the Annual Performance Reviews in favour of Continuous Performance Management (CPM). This is because CPM is regarded as more effective by many organisations as it allows them to assess employee performance on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis.
At a time when the bottom line is becoming top priority - the importance of both attracting and retaining top talent cannot be overstated. And research has shown one of the best ways to do this is to ensure your organisation’s leaders are performing at their peak, and with optimum efficiency.
Dealing with excessive heat is a fact of life for many workers – especially in Western Australia where hot workplaces are commonplace. And with summer approaching, it is even more important workers are aware of the pitfalls of working in hot conditions.
Working at heights poses numerous dangers, and is responsible for many serious and fatal injuries every year. In WA, many workers are exposed to heights every day, whether working from ladders, scaffolds and platforms, on roofs, over tanks and pits, or on vehicles or trailers.
Good Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) procedures are a vital component of any workplace. If carried out incorrectly, this practice can be fraught with danger and possible hazards. Many workers are injured and killed each year while working in confined spaces with incredibly, an estimated 60 per cent of these fatalities occurring among the would-be rescuers!
A confined space can be more hazardous than regular work spaces for many reasons.
Labour hire agencies provide invaluable support for short or long-term vacancies in your operations or management team - from site administration through to the Senior Site Executive. Indeed, not many people realise the range of personnel that are available to fill all positions.

Employing the right workers is the key to a successful business.
And the best and most cost-effective way to do this is to use the services of a proven and respected labour hire company.
An efficient, competent labour hire company can create a ‘win-win’ situation for your business by solving all of your long and short-term labour needs - and generating both project success and client satisfaction.
