We are proactive, rather than reactive
Our methodology uses a proactive, rather than reactive approach, so we identify risks before they become major issues. Our solutions are always tailored to the client’s commercial objectives. Our systems ensure that businesses run smoothly, both now and into the future.
We use a multidisciplinary approach to analyse businesses
We analyse a client’s business from both a holistic and an interdisciplinary perspective. This involves conducting an exhaustive analysis of the potential risks facing a business. We look at issues such as:
- Communication methodologies
- Engagement strategies and workplace policies
- Processes and structures
- Workplace culture.
All of our solutions are designed to accommodate our client’s commercial objectives and operating environments. This involves:
- Creating solutions that are sustainable and cost-effective
- Taking into account the workplace culture
- Managing the impact of changes to the workplace
- Preparing employees for any major changes
- Managing employees’ expectations
- Minimising the chance of adverse reactions
- Evaluating whether there is a need for ongoing education and training.
Finally, we devise long-term solutions that are able to evolve and keep pace with the growth of any business.
We are not interested in cookie-cutter solutions
At FCB HR, we know there is no one workplace solution that can be applied to every Australian business, which is why we aren’t interested in cookie-cutter solutions. Instead, finding the right solution involves a balancing exercise, where we look at issues such as:
- Financial capacity
- Risk considerations
- Operational needs
- Organisational capacity.
We also consider the relevant legal obligations, as set out in Australia’s workplace relations framework.
Telephone Advisory Service
For businesses that need ongoing support and advice, we also offer access to a Telephone Advisory Service, which provides immediate assistance on any human resources management or workplace relations issue. Due to the quality of advice we provide and our responsiveness, our Telephone Advisory Service is one of the most highly regarded in Australia.
How we collaborate with FCB Workplace Law
FCB HR collaborates closely with FCB Group’s law firm, FCB Workplace Law, when appropriate. This ensures that any system we implement is sound from a legal perspective and will reduce the chances of workplace relations problems emerging in the future.
