Workplace Investigations. Situations arise in all workplace where employers either become aware that something is amiss, or more commonly, there is a complaint or tip off from an employee. This requires investigations to be undertaken to determine what has taken place or is taking place, in order that the company can respond appropriately. We offer an independent investigation service into all types of Workplace issues and incidents. These include accident or incident, bullying or harassment or any other type of grievance or complaint.

Dispute Management/Mediation. In any workplace there will be occasions when employees may be in dispute. This can be extremely disruptive to the business and cause distress for the direct parties or those around them. We offer and independent mediation service which can help parties to work through issues and take ownership of solutions.

DiSC Profiling/Training. Companies can have fantastic business planning processes and sound values in place but all businesses are dependent on the delivery of these by their Managers and Leaders. We offer a service whereby we can assess the strengths and development opportunities of your Leaders and assist them to understand themselves better and also those around them. This leads to much better team work and workplace harmony.

Practical Leadership Development. Further to the DiSC profiling and Coaching we can provide practical training programs for your Managers and Leaders to help them better understand and deliver on their leadership responsibilities in the context of their specific job roles and the broader business objectives. These programs are tailored and practical.

Workplace Audits. It is imperative that all businesses understand their inherent risks and take all practical steps to manage them, while still delivering on their commercial objectives. We can provide insight into your risk profile by conducting a workplace safety audit. This can also include the management of any workplace incidents or injuries.

Safety Planning. After establishing your risk profile we can work with you to implement a practical Safety Management System which addresses these risks and provides demonstrable evidence of your exercise of your Due Diligence obligations. This is extremely important given that both companies and individuals share legislative responsibility for safety.

Safety Management Training. Part of your system must be to provide adequate training to employees and Managers around their Safety responsibilities. We offer a range of tailored programs to meet this legislative obligation. In any safety prosecution that occurs a lack of safety training is always included as part of the breach.

Critical Incident Management. From time to time businesses face critical incidents which they have not predicted or planned for. The manner in which your business responds to these incidents can have a significant bearing on the long-term outcome. We can help you to manage any critical incident including such issues as securing appropriate legal advice and protection, dealing appropriately with the media, managing distressed employees, notification to relevant authorities and managing that ongoing communication and potential claims management.
