HR business partners and secondments
Our consultants can support your success by undertaking a seconded placement in your organisation, saving your business time and money. Under this arrangement, an expert from the Victorian Chamber becomes your internal resource for an agreed period. We can work at your business for a short-term placement or for long-term secondment arrangements.
With access to the Victorian Chamber's resources, on-site consultants have the specific knowledge and skills to support your HR needs at that moment – whether that is managing your HR function during busy periods, covering extended leave or acting as key advisers on a project basis. An HR business partner offers a strategic and operational solution for your business.
HR and company policies should be flexible, up-to-date, compliant with legislation and adapted to suit your business. They exist to establish clear expectations and processes across a range of key HR areas. Ensuring staff are aware of these policies is essential for their adoption throughout an organisation.
Our consultants are experts at reviewing policies and developing standard operating procedures that support their success.
