Once you have the right people on your team, you should aim to keep them. Good people management that complies with current legislation is the key.

To assist small to medium businesses with managing employee performance, leave entitlements and requests for workplace flexibility, the People Essentials website provides the following essential information and related templates and links:  
  • Managing Performance - employee probationary/qualifying periods, performance appraisal, management of unsatisfactory performance and specific guidelines relating to small businesses and non-small businesses
  • Managing Leave - annual leave, personal/carer's leave, compassionate leave, community service leave, unpaid parental leave, paid parental leave and long service leave
  • Requests for Flexible Working Arrangements - guidelines for employers to comply with the National Employment Standards and Fair Work Act 2009

Your allocated support hours can be used towards assistance with developing management policies and procedures, training and development, team-building, behaviour or performance issues, OH&S or the development of a fully customised Human Resource Management System.
