Everyone has a slacker on their team. You know the worker, who just doesn’t pull their weight. Gets pulled along by the team and slithers out of responsibility and work. The one that everyone secretly knows is slack and this annoys the rest of the team. The one who always is complaining about how much work they have on, but no one seems to know what they actually do! So what do you do about team slackers? Here is the only thing you have to do – and it is simple … Do Something! That’s right, by doing nothing, you are actually doing huge harm to your business and team. If you do nothing; the r ..read more

Short term or long term workers, with loads of flexibility – get ready now, for the summer holidays

Having flexibility with your staffing is one of the most important requirements for most organisations. Without a level of flexibility, how do you manage, when your permanent team members are on holidays, have unexpected absences or take parental leave? What about those peak seasons in your industry – how do you manage in those really busy times? If you take on extra staff, you may find you have a problem later, when the work demand decreases.  Australian legislative requirements also work against flexibility, with minimum hours, casuals requesting permanency and difficulties around dism ..read more

Want to shut down over Christmas? What to do with your workers?

Many organisations like to close down for a short or longer period over the Festive Season. Sometimes the amount of Public Holidays make the few days in between seem pointless for opening the business. At this time, many suppliers are also closed, so your supply chain may not be functioning as well as it should and your clients may also be away, so trying to organise meetings and progress jobs, at this time is fruitless. If you are thinking about having a shutdown over Christmas, there are a few things you need to consider. Start by planning the time around that period, how many public holida ..read more

Help! I’m in love with my colleague!

This is a really difficult one. In reality, many long term relationships start at work. Many people meet first in the workplace and go on to live lives, raise children and be together for many years. However, approaching someone at work with your feelings for them can be a mine field. Unwanted attention can be considered sexual harassment and innocent comments can be taken the wrong way. Even harder if that person is your team member, you their boss or supervisor. In this situation you have the added issue of power imbalance and you need to tread very carefully. What is power imbalance? It is ..read more

Got some doubts about an employee? No proof? What can you do?

You just have those niggling doubts; nothing you can put your finger on, but enough to make you worried. It could be about lack of work; honesty; ethics; attitude – whatever it is, you feel it, but you just are not certain. Here’s the thing… When you are managing employees you must always be bound by the concepts of harsh; unjust and unreasonable. It is these three concepts that form the basis of an unfair dismissal claim. To talk in detail about these three concepts is for another blog but we do need to focus on the term ‘unjust’. This simply means that the employee has been accused of, and ..read more

Recruitment is an expensive business, whether you are employing a recruiter or you are doing it yourself. Time is money and recruitment is an activity that takes a lot of your time. Firstly there is writing a job spec, then an advert; deciding where to advertise, and then dealing with the applicants. If you are doing it yourself and you do a bad job of communicating with every applicant, then you are running the risk of reputational damage for your business. People talk. Candidates get a feel for what type of organisation you are; just through your communication with them both if they get off ..read more

Will your job change with new AI technologies?

Part 1 In my previous blogs, it was discussed how Artificial Intelligence (AI) burst onto our consciousness in late 2022 and how we would need to use AI tools at work to keep up and optimise our time and productivity. As I started contemplating the coming changes AI will bring to jobs in different industries, I found that I needed to split up this blog because the impact is MASSIVE. AI will prove to be a strong disruptor across all jobs in every industry eventually, although some will be impacted sooner than later. So, in no particular order….. IT and Technology The obvious industries more ..read more

So many times I have been in conferences, networking events, business groups and mentoring groups, when the question is asked ‘What is your biggest pain’ and unanimously the answer is people; staff; workers; employees! So what’s the issue – people are wonderful; creative; talented; smart  – why do so many businesses find them the greatest headache? Because people are very complex! You see, I can take all my years of experience, all the knowledge from my degrees studied, use all the skill and psychometric testing available to me, talk to past employers, conduct an in-depth interview on a ..read more
