STAR Workplace Program
Our Gold level of products, one your business won't be able to live without!
The STAR Workplace Program understands that measuring satisfaction of employees is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to people performance; in fact research from MIT Sloan Business School indicates that it is only 25% of what really counts.
The STAR Workplace Program measures more than just satisfaction, it also covers:
Benchmarking these key drivers against the Strategic Action Model and Industry standards allows businesses to see the full picture of people performance and alignment within their business - not just the tip of the iceberg!
The STAR Workplace Program has been used since 2008 to survey thousands of workers across all industries and organisation sizes.
During our research, HR Coach found that there was a gap in the market for businesses in the small to medium sized sector, to effectively create great workplaces and gain the recognition they deserved for their efforts. Terminology like 'Employer of Choice' may have implications for the corporate market, but lacks a tangible result for SME's.
The STAR Workplace Program was designed to address this gap and identify organisations that are committed to creating an engaged and productive workplace. This means organisations where both the Employer and Employees have high levels of satisfaction with the workplace, and there is a clear focus on making strategy happen.
Any organisation, regardless of size, can be a STAR Workplace!
Fusion Culture Program
We've been researching the SME market since 2008. Over that time, one thing became clear: Culture drives Performance. Building on our research, we have built a tool that helps businesses understand their culture and work towards where they want to be.
When people talk about the culture of a business, they are usually basing that perception on one interaction or one employee. We want Australasian businesses to understand their 10 key culture drivers and work towards unlocking their true value.
Our process is custom built for the demands of the SME market in Australasia. Participants can access their survey from anywhere they can access emails. Business can build plans with real people that are results focused.
HR Staff Manager
Managing a business is no easy task - but managing your employees can be! This is a key point of difference from high performing businesses to businesses that struggle.
HR Staff Manager is a simple, affordable and effective web-based employee management system, loaded with customisable templates, policies and HR processes specifically designed for Australasian small to medium businesses.
HR Staff Manager can help your business standardise your HR systems and minimise your risk. Key employee information and documentation is always at your fingertips, including up to date information on salary and wages, performance management, learning and development and important dates.

Effective employee development and retention is a key issue for most organisations. Through careful evaluation and research, the HR Coach Research Institute has developed the Career Monitor management process to proactively manage retention, focusing on the factors of 'what is needed' and 'what works'.
The Retention Interview using the Career Monitor is a tried and tested model for both feedback and management data.
How Does It Work?
The Career Monitor is an ongoing employee development and retention initiative that uses research based quantitative interviews, to provide risk and opportunity analysis for an individual employees circumstance. A multifaceted view of their job, their peers and culture and the organisation provides a clear and concise evaluation of whether the employment relationship is at risk as well as identifying future areas of mutual opportunity.
Employers are armed with information to gain a clear perspective on the business including why people join and why they stay. Due to the quantitative analysis, employers will also know how to prioritise each aspect within 3, 6 and 12 month time frames.
The Career Monitor program can be used in conjunction with:
Individual Talent Management Programs
Performance Management Interventions
Key Employee Retention Programs
Annual Survey as part of a HR Plan
Capacity Risk Mapping as part of a Strategic Review
New Employee Survey in line with the STAR Workplace Business Improvement Program
