This is a question that all business owners and leaders should ask themselves at some point and never more than now in such turbulent times. In an ever changing and complex world, the risks and challenges in our operating environment are constantly shifting. If you are confused, worried or just want some reassurance about a situation or risk in your workplace, you’ve come to the right place.

Whilst working with some lawyers and advisors law firms can sometimes be overly formal, difficult and make things more complicated, here at Workplace Wizards we pride ourselves on our award-winning service.

At Workplace Wizards, you’ll get law-firm quality advice without the unnecessary fills plus the added benefits of practical and strategic solutions drawn from our real-life, on-the-ground experience helping hundreds of Australian businesses just likes yours. If you really do need a lawyer, don’t worry, we’ve got plenty on hand. Most of our consultants practice as lawyers as well giving you the same strategic advice with the added benefits of legal advice and legal professional insurance should you required it.

Here are are some of the common issues that our clients have engaged one of our workplace lawyers and advisors to help with:

  • your business is facing a major labour relations crisis or burn out
  • you have overlapping programs with other business units or departments and want to increase collaboration
  • you are onboarding staff, and writing up contracts, policies and procedures for employees
  • you have underperforming or misbehaving staff
  • an employee has made a complaint or filed an unfair dismissal claim
  • you are involved in anything related to the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth)

If you are experiencing any of these issues, you’re not alone.

Our workplaces are facing some of the greatest challenges of our time – high turnover rates (thanks Great Resignation), high levels of burn out and stress, and increasing pressures on our industry. Not to mention a looming recession here in Australia and a new Federal Government who has swept in committed to make some pretty significant changes to our operating environment.

It’s time to get ahead of things and stop playing defence. Take control of your staffing issues, take control of your risk and set your organisation up to THRIVE.

But you can’t do this alone. You have an exciting opportunity to stabilise your turnover rates, improve the wellbeing and resilience of staff and maximise productivity. Work with our workplace lawyers and advisors to get the most up to date advice, thinking and experience on combating the challenges you are facing and get ahead of the game.
