Startups & Scale-ups
Startups walk the tightrope of balancing growth and profitability.
Business owners and founders do a lot of the heavy lifting when running the business.
There is a tipping point between the strategy for growth and spending time
worrying about infrastructure and administration.
The value of working with Relate HR is that we are a cost-effective solution to broad HR issues without the commitment of additional headcount.
We create the right infrastructure, policies, and
processes to allow the business to grow and set up
practices for a future HR function.
All aspects of recruitment directly influence onboarding and performance on the job. Recruitment is not rocket science;
it is a process. The key to any effective process is understanding
your control points, simplifying access to the tools required,
and standardising procedures.
Our best practice recruitment design and co-sourcing can
see you realise less reliance on recruitment agencies,
higher performance, access to future talent, minimised risk,
lower turnover and a diverse team.
WE WILL HELP YOU SET A FRAMEWORK THAT YOU CAN SUCCESSFULLY RUN INDEPENDENTLY IN THE FUTURE.
HR on demand
In the beginning, many startups don’t have the financial resources to invest in an HR team. Engaging an expert saves money and time. It gives peace of mind that vital regulatory requirements and obligations will be met.
It also means that some fundamental pieces can be set up from the beginning and provide a foundation for continued growth.
Our support can include recruitment assistance, developing onboarding processes, key HR policies and processes, job descriptions, performance reviews, or understanding legislative employment requirements.
IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN EXTRA SET OF HANDS TO HELP WITH YOUR HR, WE ARE HERE.
Many startup failures are due to poor management and leadership inexperience. As you grow, one of the most important things you can do is invest in the leadership capability of your organisation.
An excellent leadership program doesn’t have to be costly, but it should be unique to your organisation and include key leadership elements that are critical to success.
Dedicate some time to think through what this looks like for your business, and consider incorporating fundamentals like connecting to purpose, setting expectations, coaching, feedback, and reward and recognition.

LEADERSHIP PROGRAM, WE ARE HERE.
Understand your obligations
Employing staff comes with a multitude of essential obligations. Knowing the correct award for your team, including minimum pay, penalty and overtime rates, ensures you avoid severe penalties. You also have a legal and ethical responsibility
to meet equal opportunity standards, provide a safe
workplace, have sound injury management practices,
accurate record-keeping systems and meet your tax
and superannuation obligations.
Additionally, top employers are increasingly going beyond their minimum legal obligations to allow all employees access to flexible working arrangements.
IF YOU HAVE SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT MEETING YOUR OBLIGATIONS, WE CAN HELP.
Culture is driven through proactive actions. In the beginning, what seems to happen effortlessly can stall growth and reduce productivity if not deliberately managed. Unhealthy cultures left unchecked can become toxic, driving high performers and knowledge out of your business.
If you have experienced a drop in productivity and employee engagement or an increase in staff complaints or exits, these could be signs that your culture needs a tune-up.
Nurture your culture through excellent communication, setting expectations, hiring great people, and making a conscious effort to keep culture at the heart of the business.
