HR Consulting

Expert HR advice for small business employers

We bridge the gap between a HR consultant and an on-site HR manager. Many small businesses don't need a dedicated HR manager, and at Urban HR, we're on hand to give you the advice you need when you need it, rather than being a fixed overhead cost.

We provide HR advice and consulting, mentoring and coaching for you and your managers and can help with HR projects too.

Urban HR is available on-demand and where required to provide peace of mind and expert advice when it comes to your tricky people problems.

We're certified Investigation Agents and can assist you with independent investigations into workplace bullying and harassment, misconduct investigations and Code of Conduct breaches.

Our consulting services include:
  • Advice on Employment Conditions
  • Guidance on Modern Awards
  • Wages, salaries and pay rates
  • Compliance with Fair Work Act
  • Performance management
  • Non work related medical conditions

  • HR Policies and Procedures

    We all want to know our business is compliant and our documents are up-to-date with the most recent developments and best practice human resources in Australia.

    Urban HR can develop tailored human resources policies and procedures that cover the full suite from recruitment policies to performance management and disciplinary procedures.

    Our Policy and Procedure Packages are:
  • Business Basics
  • Business Booster
  • Business Best Practice

  • The packages come with forms, checklists and letter templates to help you be HR compliant!

    Whether you require once off, project advice or ongoing advice we keep our fees reasonable so you can afford to get HR specialist advice without the expense of a full time HR manager.

    HR Misconduct Investigations

    We're investigation agents and can run an independent investigation into:
  • Misconduct
  • Theft and fraud
  • Code of Conduct breaches
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Disrespectful behaviour

    HR Audits

    Our HR audits can be done onsite, offsite or a combination of both.

    We have prepared a tailored small business HR audit that covers the basics. You'll know whether you're compliant with the Fair Work Act and if your documentation is up to scratch, protecting you from expensive legal costs. Once the audit is completed we'll provide you with a list of key recommendations, take the time to discuss them with you and help implement them too!

    The HR audit covers:
  • Wages and salaries
  • Employment terms and conditions
  • Employment practices
  • HR policies and procedures
  • WHS compliance
  • Culture, engagement and more

    Hire and Onboard

    Recruitment and Induction

    It’s important to get the right person in the right position. Easier said than done.

    Hiring the right staff is much more than simply putting an advert on Seek or taking the first CV that comes through the door.

    Connect with us to get the best match for your team possible.

    Our 10 Step Recruitment EBook describes the best practice process we take to get your next hire on board.

    Develop and Retain

    Performance Review Systems and Succession Planning

    Training starts from when a new employee joins your organisation and ensures your employees are equipped with the skills, knowledge and competencies to perform their role effectively and efficiently.

    Whether you need an induction guide setting up or an ongoing training plan for your employees or help with succession planning, we’ll help you get it right.

    Proper training and development plans increase tenure of staff and natural succession plans fall into place.
    We can also help you develop KPIs for your employees.

    Linking your training and development plans to performance assessment outcomes will also strengthen your HR function.

    Training & Development

    Team Building

    By drawing on your team’s current strengths and areas for development we’ll tailor your team building programs to meet your business needs.

    Using experiential learning as a basis for program development, our programs go beyond boardroom discussions and integrate practical exercises that get to the fundamental behaviours and roles present in your team.

    Our clients say our team building workshops are like nothing they've ever seen!

    Emotional Intelligence, Resilience and Wellbeing Workshops

    We also love helping staff, new leaders and business owners learn skills that will build their EI, resilience and wellbeing.

    Our workshops are inspired by Andrea Duckworth's GRIT model and Carol Dweck's work and will equip your team to better manage the day to day both in your business and at home.
