Organisational Development and Design
In the current environment of budgetary and ASL restrictions, we are all facing the challenge of doing more with less. Fewer resources and increased workloads can lead to reduced staff retention, absenteeism, presenteeism and an ongoing risk of failure to deliver on strategic objectives. Organisational design and development can help improve work flows, procedures, structures and systems leading to improved delivery and employees who are empowered, engaged and committed to the business.
With many years of contemporary Human Resource experience in both the public and private sector, HRSA possesses unique insight into the corporate and governance structures of a diverse range of organisations. The team at HRSA have a track record of developing innovative and agile organisations using established and blended organisational design models. Whilst a tailored approach is taken to each client, our better-practice approach focusses on sustainable work-practices that improve efficiency, are cost-effective and attract the best and brightest of the labour market to your organisation – and keeps them there.
Is your workforce planning truly effective, as many organisations can differ in their levels of maturity in this area. Some organisations are perhaps at the beginning of their workforce planning journey and are looking for assistance, while others are well progressed and are looking to push the envelope in improving their workforce planning strategies.
The development of an effective workforce plan which is linked to business objectives and drives organisational outcomes assists organisations from reacting to workforce challenges and starts preparation for them before they occur. Succession planning, anticipating vacancies, workforce management, critical role identification, and job design are all aspects the team at HRSA can assist you with.

Complex Case Management
At times, time poor managers have things that may fall into their too hard basket as HR casework can take many forms and involve many complex aspects of managing people. Dealing with the ever increasing complexities of the HR environment including multi generational teams and workforces, social media, and increased public sector scrutiny and constraints are all issues at the forefront of todays management challenges. Things at times unfortunately gain momentum and suddenly a minor issue escalates into multiple issues and in turn leads to a combative employment relationship. The HRSA approach is for early intervention before escalation or providing an avenue for resolution between parties on an issue which could have been handled better.
The team at HRSA take a wholistic approach when developing strategies to deal with these challenges, ensuring each issue is dealt with under the appropriate framework whether it be rehabilitation and return to work, performance management or behavioural issues within the workplace. The ability to provide tactical and practical advice for managers in dealing with challenging staff will assist managers in communicating difficult messages and managing sensitive situations.
Governance and Risk Management
Managing risk and ensuring you have appropriate levels of governance in place at an organisational level are common features of the modern day organisation and HR should be no different. Risk appetite is always greater up until the point where something goes wrong and risk mitigation is always better than management after the event. The team at HRSA can assist you in successfully navigating the complexities of managing risk when dealing in a people context. The approach needs to be considered and thoughtful as the cost of getting this wrong for organisations can be significant.
HR Frameworks, Policies and Procedures Development
Not only do contemporary HR practitioners have to contend with extensive legislative controls, but increasingly challenging enterprise bargaining and performance management frameworks have meant that organisations are now more dependent on robust policy and procedures. HRSA has extensive experience in developing and implementing strong and effective HR governance frameworks, policies and procedures that seek to enhance the maturity and capability of all workforce functions.
