Why you need Temporary Staff?

With Financial Year End looming, now could be the right time to hire a temp. If you’re a business owner and haven’t used one in the past you simply are missing the great benefits of having temporary staff to get your through high volume seasons, EOFY just being just one of them. Having an extra set of hands during busy periods allows your business to stay productive ahead of your competitors and more importantly helps small business owners remain calm during what can be a stressful time if you don’t have the right people in your team. If you need help in achieving your short-term goals, few options surpass engaging temporary workers. In fact, due to the amount of time and money that can be saved, temp staff have been at the heart of great business for decades. Engaging temporary workers through an expert recruitment partner can provide huge benefits for your business. Here’s just a few important ones. Enhance Your Business’s Flexibility Having adaptable resources is paramount for business and office support divisions. Whether you urgently need an Event Coordinator to organise a crucial conference you’re hosting in a few weeks, or a Receptionist to cover a key employee’s parental leave, engaging temporary staff can provide unparalleled flexibility when you need it most. In addition, if a mission-critical employee suddenly moves on from [...]

Christmas is almost here…

I write this with less than one week until Christmas 2017! The big day is super close now, which means offices are slowing down for the year as they tie up any loose ends before the break. To help you out, I’ve compiled a quick checklist that your office should do before walking out the door for the festive holiday season. 1. Out of Office Message Ensure you’ve got an out of office message on your phone/email  so anyone who emails you knows when you will be back in the office and who they can get in contact with should they require immediate assistance. 2. Do the paperwork Don’t start 2018 with paperwork still on your desk. Sort it out, file it, scan it – whatever you need to do to complete it. 3. The ‘fridge Yes, it’s a bit of a mundane task but sort out the office fridge before you go so you and your colleagues aren’t coming back to a smelly kitchen. Throw out any unwanted and unused food. 4. Handover If someone is watching your desk, ensure you’ve got a great hand over prepared, so they know exactly what needs to be done. 5. Desk clean up It’s probably a good idea to do a quick desk (and under desk) clean up before you finish 2017. Take home jackets and [...]

What Jobs will disappear first and who will it Impact Most?

A recent article by “INDEED” discussed “Which Generation is Most at Risk of Losing Work through Job Automation? Broadly speaking - management, professional and service occupations fall into the non-routine category while - sales, administrative, construction, transportation, production and repair occupations are considered routine. So which generation shows the most interest in jobs which are more susceptible to automation? Millennials and Generation Xers are significantly more interested than boomers in cognitive occupations.  The younger job seekers tend to be more interested in jobs that involve a lower degree of routine tasks, a characteristic that often makes them harder to automate. The majority of job seekers in all three groups under consideration – Millennials, Generation X and Boomers – show interest in some routine occupations. However, the two end generations (boomers and millennials) show significant differences in taste Boomers tend to be 49% more likely than millennials to show interest in a wider range of routine manual occupations that include installation, construction, maintenance and repair, transportation and materials moving, as well as personal care occupations. With the exception of Personal Care, these occupations fall into the group of jobs most associated with a high likelihood of automation in the future. Millennials have an above average level of interest in jobs in office administration and food preparation (routine) as well as arts, education and the life, physical and social sciences (cognitive).

Strong Economy & Continued Growth: (We’re Still Growing !)

A recent report (Daily FX) stated that the record trade surplus accompanied by the pick up in business sentiment may generate another “better-than-expected” employment result.  This positive development may spark a bullish reaction in the $A as it boosts the outlook for growth and inflation. Australia added another 13.5K jobs in December following 38.3K jobs expansion in the month prior. These rises were made up of 9.3K full time roles and 4.2K part time positions As December/January are our lowest employment months, we can expect continued growth as we move into the year ahead. The jobless rate is still at 5.8% and when you consider that over 3% are unemployable, we are still up there on the World scale. And where are these jobs?  What sectors are expanding? Which ones are contracting? A Senior Manager in the Recruitment Sector recently reported on the overall positive growth across all Sectors: Specifically: Up 19% Child Care; Aged Care: Disability Care (these are obvious sectors) Communications; Up 14% Hospitality/Waiting Staff/Baristas; Professionals such as : nurses, Accountants, Teachers, IT Providers & Software Programmers Up 9.3% Sales, Real Estate, Cashiers, Pharmacy workers However the sectors expected to see job losses aside from mining, manufacturing and agribusiness include: Down from 18% in 1990 – 14% in 2015 (of total workforce) Clerical, General Accounts and book keeping, Credit Control, Data Entry/Management and Reception.

Tips to choosing the right Candidate for your Team

There’s no doubt that meeting a candidate face-to-face is the best way to gauge their suitability for a role. But is there more to look for than simply a rundown of experience and ticking the boxes with general questions? As with most aspects of life, the way in which people interact and tackle challenges says much about how they are likely to succeed. Consider these tips to help you select your next candidate with confidence. Relax. Set a relaxed tone for the interview. Even meetings for high profile roles can benefit from a relaxed atmosphere. The candidate (and the interviewer) is more likely to show the positive attributes of their personality when they don’t have to concentrate on acting formally. Also, allow the candidate to respond fully to your questions without filling pauses with lots of chatter. Keep it real. Speaking only of the perks of the job can set an unrealistic expectation that the role is all fun and games with no challenges. Conversely, only asking questions about tackling problems may give the impression that the role is a miserable drag. Taking a balanced approach is a key to ensuring great candidates keep their interest in the job on offer. Be honest. If you’re concerned about an aspect of their application, bring it up at the interview stage. You may be surprised at [...]
