Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, Happy HR is easy and intuitive, and you do not have to be an IT wizard to take advantage of what it has to offer. Our HR process enables clients to seamlessly run their organisations – not get in the way. We will ensure that we provide support, training, and webinars so you and your staff understand how to successfully use the Happy HR platform.

Happy HR is easy to set up! You have two choices: A self-guided plan and a pro plan.
The self-guided is a plan for people who are confident with HR.
The self-guided plan comes with lots of training guides that are easy to follow so set up is a breeze. 
The pro plan is for organisations that have more complex HR set ups or for people who are not as confident with HR.
The bachelor qualified HR team is here to help you every step of the way.
Our team of qualified HR consultants will collaborate with you to set up the system, ensure your HR policies are in line with your values and write your position descriptions to ensure that the activities in each position description are truly aligned to your strategic and operational goals.
We collaborate with you to become a master user and provide training to managers and employees
as well.
The software is easy to use and will reduce 90% of your HR administration. Also, if you need support, our dedicated Client Relationship Team is here to help you with all enquiries.

In general, clients are up and running in about 3-5 hours. You simply choose a plan, then fill out a simple questionnaire, which will populate ready to use legally compliant HR policies that are tailored to your company. From there you create your position descriptions, organisational chart, and you are ready to go.

Happy HR will save you a significant amount of time and money. Having all your documentation in one place in an easy to find format means everything is at your fingertips.

Yes, it is. Happy HR takes data protection very seriously. Happy HR has policies and procedures to store personal information securely. We respect the privacy of our client’s personal information and our commitment to them is demonstrated by using the same principles required by Australia’s privacy legislation for dealing with customer information. This information is strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose for which it was collected and no other purpose without your written authority. Furthermore, we only provide access to those who are required to perform the administration activities. We undertake that the information we receive will be kept confidential and will not be passed on to another party without your express permission or unless we are required to by law.

Happy HR is suitable for all businesses. You have a legal obligation to have HR policies to govern your business or you risk being like the other cases that ended up at Fair Work Australia last year because they did not have a legally compliant HR process and or HRIS system.

You will have access to 15 minutes of phone-based support per month. We also provide Zoom support, and virtual screen sharing so we can demonstrate features to you on the spot. We want to ensure that you and your staff know how to successfully use the Happy HR platform. If you have a HR question, an anxiety, a question about performance management or how to handle a difficult situation, or need to talk to a HR professional about any situation in your workplace as your HR partner we are here to help by emailing help@happyhr.com

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.
