Morning Session –
   Simple ways to recruit competent employees and how to keep them

Services nationally are struggling with the two fold problem of finding adequately trained staff to cover their operational needs and retaining them after they have been appointed.

The competence and value of trained staff coming from RTO’s is not consistent and with very few exceptions, services have no choice but to unofficially retrain staff for them to be of any real value.

This seminar will not give you magic powers of attraction BUT will give you tools that have been used by many services over the years to attract quality educators or dig them out of a group of candidates, employ them, support them and enjoy their loyalty.

This seminar will cover:

  • Defining what you are looking for? - skills reviews and what we actually need not think we need and planning for tomorrow.
  • What to look for in an employee beyond a certificate - selection criteria
  • Who should be on a selection panel. Primal attraction
  • Questions to ask during interview that help you know what your really looking at
  • Advantages and legalities of “try before you buy” - test-driving a new staff member.
  • Induction and its relationship with ongoing performance monitoring - am I setting my staff up to fail 
  • What if you get it wrong - the dangers of ignoring mistakes?

Afternoon Session –
   Confidently Managing underperformers – What are your Rights?

Half the calls we receive are about what to do with staff who are not demonstrating the competence they showed at interview or are refusing to follow direction or adhere to policy or procedure.

More common over the last few years has been claims by staff that they are being bullied even when your talking to them about their performance or responsibility or making injury to mental health claims triggered by everything from Covid to being disrespected by a child or being asked to turn up to work on time.

Although some claims may well be true, the list of excuses that employees will conger to be paid for not working is depressingly endless

This workshop will give you the tools and knowledge to address the following:

  • Setting goals for underperformers…
  • What do employees have to do to remain employed?
  • What must you demonstrate you have done before disciplinary action?
  • What is “reasonable management practice”…The Bullying and Harassment myth, how to manage claims and allegations.
  • Managing Stress and Anxiety in staff both real and imagined.
  • Basic rules of workers compensation claims associated with performance or mental health
  • What to do when staff inappropriately interact with staff - inappropriate discipline to interaction both inside and outside the service.
  • Why we document!! document!! document!!

David takes a simple and interactive approach to presenting and often uses third party case studies of what other service providers have done or experienced do to illustrate solutions.   He has never understood why so many presenters make the solutions to very simple problems, more complex than they have to be.
