Human Resources Consulting

Employees are the strength of your organisation.  SBS can help you manage that strength from the hiring process through to resignation and during those times when changes are required.  We work with you to implement HR policies that are practical, easy to understand and designed to protect your business and your most valuable asset, your employees.

Employee Relations

Sometimes the employee relationship can break down and the parties involved need support to understand their relationship responsibilities.  SBS HR professionals have extensive experience working with companies and individuals mitigating employee relationship problems.  Some of the areas we can assist include:

  • Bullying, harassment and discrimination
  • Disputes
  • Workplace investigations
  • Performance management
  • Employee misconduct
  • Personal grievances
  • Drug and Alcohol breaches

Employment Agreements

"Every employee must have an employment agreement." (Employment New Zealand)  What is included in that agreement is the difference between good employee relations and the potential for long term costly problems.  SBS can review your employment agreements against the most current legislation, update or write new agreements and help you implement changes with your employees.  We will also provide you with regular updates on legislation changes that may affect you in the future.

HR Policies

Setting clear and consistent expectations for employees helps to prevent misunderstandings, and employees having to guess what is expected from them.  Our HR professionals are experts at writing practical, easy to understand policies that cover a variety of areas including but not limited to:

  • Disciplinary Processes
  • Bullying, Discrimination and Harassment
  • Leave
  • Drugs & Alcohol
  • Confidentiality & Privacy
  • Computer & Information Usage (email and internet)
  • Vehicle Usage
  • Expenses
  • Overtime
  • Stress and Fatigue

Leadership and Team Development

Leadership happens at all levels of an organisation.  At SBS we can help you recognise where leadership is happening in your company and work with you to develop your true team leaders.  Through one-on-one coaching, seminars, workshops and individual training SBS can design a tailored development program for you and your team.

Outplacement and Restructuring

Sometimes employee change has to happen creating an emotional time for employees and for you, the employer.  SBS can help you proactively manage this change and support your people through the transition process.  Our outplacement program is designed to help people move to the next stage of their career through training, skills transfer and career coaching, giving you piece of mind that you offered them the best opportunity to move forward.
