More Information To Get Started
What training can I get for myself and employees?
Happy HR is here to provide ongoing HR training, provide HR support, webinars to ensure that you maximise the use of the software. We want to ensure you get the benefits of the software but also the benefit of having us as your HR partner. As qualified HR professionals we are truly here to help.
How do I maintain my polices to ensure that they are up to date and legally compliant?
Our documents are approved by legal professionals. To ensure that you remain legally compliant, we recommend that clients use our easy-to-use copyrighted self-population questionnaire that pre-populates current HR polices that are legally compliant. This way when there is an update to a policy because of a change to HR legislation clients can remain HR compliant with our simple acceptance system. If you update your information by using the edit company tab in the Happy HR Admin document dashboard, they will also remain legally compliant. Our policies are compliant to Australian Commonwealth standards. You may make alterations to the documents, but these will no longer carry the assurance of Happy HR PTY LTD. Happy HR can organise for a legal professional to review your amendments. There is a small but reasonable fee to review your altered policies to give you peace of mind. Remember it is your obligation to run your company according to the policies should you accept them.
How do I induct new employees?
Staff induction is now done in a flash! Happy HR has an online induction process that you use via the organisational chart. All you do is simply fill in the new recruit’s email address, salary, offer expiry date and our platform allows new recruits to review and accept their letter of offer, position description and company HR policies all before their first day at work!
How do I create position descriptions?
You can create position descriptions that clearly outline the performance indicators, core competencies, experience and education required for each role. Simply go to the position description creator and choose a position description from an industry or use the creator to create a position. Remember a position description must have performance indicators. The process is easy to do, however if you are having trouble, you can call us to ask for help!
Can I modify my HR policies?
Yes, clients can modify their HR policies, but this may affect their legal compliance. Happy HR can organise for a legal professional to review your amendments. There is a small but reasonable fee to review your altered policies to give you peace of mind.
What is the performance improvement plans, why do they drive performance?
Our performance improvement plans are based on S.M.A.R.T Goals. S.M.A.R.T is an acronym for: Specific, Measurable, Action-orientated, Realistic and Time bound. The performance improvement plans are used to train a person who is not meeting the performance indicators as stipulated in the employee’s Position Description. A manager will place an employee onto a performance improvement when they are not meeting performance requirements. The manager and the employee mutually agree on the performance improvement plan, so both are aware of what obligations are required from each party to ensure the performance improvement plan is achieved.
