Welcome to the world of being a Small Business owner
The long hours, cash flow pressures, staffing issues and a sense of feeling overwhelmed – Welcome to the world of being a Small Business owner.
According to new research working long hours is putting business leaders at risk. Research has shown that those leading and managing small to medium businesses are likely to work very long hours and as a result are also at risk of suffering mental health problems. Another recent study suggests nearly half (45%) of Australian small business owners are feeling more stressed this year than in the 12 months prior. Does this sound like you?

Please see below for more information on what we can offer you as a Small Business owner on the Gold Coast – Small Business HR Audits and General Advice
Why do an HR Audit?
Human Resource audits accomplish a variety of objectives, such as ensuring legal compliance; helping maintain or improve a competitive advantage; establishing efficient documentation and technology practices; and identifying strengths and weaknesses in training, communications and other employment practices. HR auditing for small Business on the Gold Coast is something that many companies do annually, just as they audit their financial information. This gives them an accounting of their workforce and the efficiency with which the organisation as an entity deals with its people, from recruiting to Dismissal. HR auditing can be likened to a person going to the doctor for a general check-up to stay well. The process allows a company to get a general idea of where it stands so it can better correct any potential problems and plan for the future. When it comes to physical health, prevention of problems is far better than waiting until a problem arises and trying to cure it. The same holds true for human resources auditing. Preventing problems is much easier than trying to fix them after the fact. Good Human Resource planning and auditing can help prevent those problems, and save companies money and difficulties.
