Online HR Content Library

We offer Retained HR at three different levels; Essentials, Elite & Excellence.

Each package provides you with exclusive access to the HR content library!

Generally used by our micro-sized clients (whether recruiting for the first time, or realising as their workforce grows that they need to have the core basics of HR in place). Essential clients tend to range between 1 – 10 employees. This service does not provide any advice or support, beyond simply accessing the monthly downloads from the online Content Library of this Academy. When needed, Essentials clients may buy time from our Pay As You Go service (PAYG) whenever additional support is required.
Clients can be sized anywhere between 8 – 25 employees. Some clients that are paying for HR support for the first time want the benefit of key content from the Content Library of our Academy and knowing that our virtual HR Advice and support is there for them, day-to-day, when they need it. Our Elite clients can see the value of our annual work plan we tailor make for them and they purchase additional Elite or Excellence PAYG when they need it.
Clients utilising this level of service tend to have 15+ employees and want to advance their HR or simply benefit from an onsite presence. We focus on enhancing employee communication, engagement and involvement. We can attend/facilitate management meetings/development sessions, coach and guide managers.
