HR Leader reveals some of the latest products and services on the market for HR professionals

01 Work and Life Wellbeing – Wellbeing Coaching

What?

Work and Life Wellbeing takes a step by step approach to teaching managers and employees how to increase their wellbeing so they can be more effective and productive at work, while also enjoying a better home life.

Why?

We all know that skilled, motivated and engaged employees are your competitive advantage. They contribute significantly to performance, productivity and bottom line results. But work-life balance often gets in the way of good performance. People are struggling to manage work and home – and the consequences for organisations are huge. Employers must therefore be on top of the situation and it falls upon HR to lead the way.

Unique Selling Point?

These programs include face-to-face seminars, workshops, and coaching, and innovative online resources to help people better manage their work and home life. The work is based on best practice and innovative application of the latest research findings. But most importantly, it is practical and hands-on.

02 Money 101 – Financial Educator

What?

Money 101 has developed education packages for employers to use when coaching staff in matters of money and personal finance. The packages contain a number of training modules designed to give businesses the tools needed to train staff successfully.

Why?

It’s the ‘early bird who catches the worm’ that determines who wins or loses in the cutthroat world of corporate business, and that makes offering financial education to staff so important.

Happy, stress-free employees make for a more productive workforce, and when personal issues relating to finances impact on a worker’s ability to work to capacity, HR managers should be on hand to help make the lives of their employees better.

Unique Selling Point?

The product offers different levels of complexity ranging from Platinum to Bronze. Each package brings differing degree of outcomes based on an employer’s investment on the package purchased. For example, a Platinum Package has a greater number of training modules compared to a Bronze Package.

03 Expect A Star – The Corporate Family Program

What?

This product, which provides online information and support for employees on a full range of issues related to caring for a young child or an elderly loved one, is suitable for every type of employer. It can be accessed from the office, on the road or at home and can also be accessed by the family of the employee.

Why?

Many employees care for either a younger or elderly person and as such the program provides them with the necessary information to make informed choices and generally supports them throughout this period.

The program ties in to a company’s intranet and contains company branding and colours.

Unique Selling Point?

This product is one of a kind, there is nothing quite like it that exists in the market today. From an implementation perspective the program is powered completely by Expect A Star, therefore taking up minimal time of already time-poor HR executives.

05 Synergy Success Strategies – Optimism Profiling

What?

Synergy Success Strategies is introducing Optimism Profiling into the Australian market. Based on 30 years of research by Dr. Martin Seligman who proved that management's best predictor of success is the employee's level of optimism, it’s an innovative way to screen and select candidates based on their level of optimism.

Why?

If you have ever wondered why you cannot find the right people, maybe the answer is to test their optimism level. To create a successful sales team you need the right characters on board and that cannot always be determined by a resume and interview alone.

Optimism Profiling results prove that key people must have high optimism scores and high auditory digital (high attention to detail). It suggests that high scorers will follow through, complete tasks and have an innate ability to follow steps, systems and processes.

Unique Selling Point?

It can also be used to help up-skill current employees to realise their full potential by highlighting areas or individuals that need to be addressed.

06 Remesys – R.Review

What?

R.Review is a web-based solution for managing the remuneration review process and offers an easier, more efficient and more effective alternative to spreadsheet-based salary and bonus reviews.

The review process is streamlined by providing HR managers with access to a single source of data. Access to R.Review is via a secure login, and managers can only access employees they have been granted permission to view.

Why?

Many organisations are embracing software solutions as a means of streamlining traditionally manual processes such as payroll, recruitment, learning and development, performance reviews and salary packaging, but many are still relying on spreadsheets to manage their remuneration review processes.

R.Review provides managers with access to all the information they require, including budget allocations, superannuation and allowances, market/job family data, performance ratings and historical data to make informed decisions about their employees fixed and variable pay.

USP?

There are a number of benefits including, reduced errors; decreased administrative effort and time; secure access anywhere, anytime; automated real- time reporting; automated salary letters; automated tracking of spend to budget and effective compliance monitoring.
