External Event

Bookings essential.

Behind every business success story is a great team making it all happen.  Find out how to identify the right people for your business and how to motivate them to stay. Investing in your people is your best investment in the future of your business. This three and a half-hour workshop is packed with practical advice, tips and templates to show you how.

Great staff care about the quality of their work as much as you care about your business success. It’s as simple as that. If you don’t put time and focus into finding – and then looking after – the right team for your business, you’re letting opportunity walk out your door.

Be guided, step by step, through every stage of the recruitment process, from application to interview, offer to induction and how best to keep staff motivated and engaged to stay on board.

Get help to identify your staffing needs and practical effective ways to source and select the right people to match your business culture and objectives.

Get across your legal obligations as an employer, including contracts, wages and conditions, employee policies and procedures. Then learn how to manage and support your best people to stay, including salary packaging, workplace flexibility, taking care of staff wellbeing and building a staff culture that keeps great teams together.

Whether you need one person or ten, the knowledge you build at this workshop will help you to not only bring good people into your business but provide vital guidance when relationships end, including dispute negotiation, termination, redundancy and dismissal.

An essential addition to any business toolkit, this practical interactive Small Business Victoria workshop is one of many that have helped businesses in Victoria get started for over 10 years.

Learn how to:

  • Identify your staffing needs
  • Attract the right people
  • Conduct interviews and assess candidates
  • Choose between contract and salary
  • Understand legal compliance
  • Build a great culture around your staff
  • Negotiate and resolve disputes
