Engagement and Retention

“If you really want to do something you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse” – Jim Rohn

Here’s the bottom line on Reward and Recognition … Incentives help engage your workforce, and an engaged workforce enhances your bottom line! Companies with higher than average workforce engagement have higher than normal profits, sales, staff and customer loyalty and above average productivity and performance. We can help you to tick all the boxes when it comes to engaging your workforce effectively. From tailor made recognition, reward and incentive programs, we will devise the right total rewards package for your company, aligning with your goals, strategies and of course, budget!

Staff Development

“Nourish the mind like you would your body. The mind cannot survive on junk food” – Jim Rohn

Training is often the first thing that gets put on hold when we get busy. However, investing in your people by upskilling them is key for future proofing your business. An established development plan creates an engaged workforce who feel confident, valued, recognised and motivated to perform and excel. We can help you create training and development plans, skills matrices, and succession plans so that your staff can clearly see their worth to the business and how they can progress.

Staff Performance

“High achievement always takes place in a framework of high expectation” – Jack Kinder

We all need to know what is expected of us and whether we’re meeting those expectations. Regular feedback and the measurement of performance can be truly motivational, and can also nip any potential issues in the bud. We can help you set up clear processes to ensure your staff regularly know what you expect from them, and how they are performing.

Health and Safety

Don’t get caught out! We can help with all your basic health and safety needs, including creating a health and safety policy, comprehensive hazard register, forms and processes for hazard and accident reporting and investigation, health and safety training plans, a health and safety manual (including basic processes and procedures) and staff induction packs.

Contact Us for more information.

Welcoming and On-Boarding

Most businesses use a recruitment agency for recruitment, but that’s where their level of ‘investment’ stops. We believe that positive staff engagement happens from the get-go. It is essential that your new staff feel welcome and valued from day one. We can help with checklists, induction processes and plans which will remove the stress for your Managers and your new recruits so that they can focus on the things that really matter – like getting productive!

Employment Agreements

Be confident that both you and your staff members have the same understanding in this working relationship. Personalised templates for permanent, fixed term and casual employment agreements which will make sure you have all key aspects covered.

Contact Us for more information.

Policies and Procedures

Are you and your staff all on the same page when it comes to the fabulous ‘perks’ that your business provides for its staff? On the flip side, in the unfortunate event that a staff member lets you down, can you show that you have clearly communicated your expectations to your staff? Transparency is key. We can review your current policies and procedures and ensure you have something in place to cover all the common management decisions that you may face.

Strategy / Organisational Development

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” ― Benjamin Franklin

Businesses perform better if there’s a plan in place which has been clearly communicated to staff, and which is regularly reviewed. But how are you supposed to find time to create a Business Plan when most small to medium business owners are too busy working IN the business to spend time ON the business? We have access to the perfect, easy to use, online planning tool; or alternatively, we can facilitate sessions to help you firstly establish your vision, then develop your plan and finally communicate and implement these strategies.

Contact Us for more information.

Who better to work with you than a team who have already taken the time to learn and enhance your company culture and who can continue this journey with experienced and professional end to end event management. Whether it be your team building events, incentive travel, reward and recognition events, domestic or international conferences or conventions; we specialise in all aspects of event management.

Psychometric Testing Using Extended DISC

Do you know how to best manage the different personality types within your team?  We are Extended DISC Accredited Practitioners, and use the Extended DISC system in a number of ways to help with personal growth, team building and leadership, as well as to assist with recruitment.  There are a number of different reports available:

  • Grow and Develop – a self awareness report which provides individuals with an in depth understanding of their strengths and development areas, as well as hints and tips on how best to communicate with other DISC styles
  • Team and Build – a team report which provides insight into your team dynamics, helping you identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to your team, as well as some great communication insights
  • Lead and Manage – this report identifies an individual’s leadership style, and provides insight into how other DISC styles perceive their leadership, as well as hints and tips on how best to communicate
  • Recruit and Select – a candidate assessment which allows you to see your candidates behavioural style, and assess their fit for the role and team

These behavioural assessments can be used to effectively improve self awareness, communication and teamwork.  Here at Spice HR, we prefer to get to know you and your team before making recommendations on what report or combination of reports would work best.  Contact Us for more information.

Enhance your business with a touch of spice.  After all … we don’t do bland!
