Staff Hire Services

Your greatest asset is staff

But they are also your most time consuming, risky & expensive overhead, that consume unrelenting amounts of management time.

Did you know? Human Resource Management, staff overheads & other costs up to an additional 50% on top of the staff wages and superannuation. Therefore if your payroll is $1,000,000 your HR outgoings could be costing your business an additional $500,000.

In good times or slow periods administrative overheads increase (or decrease) as demands for your business change.

freespirit will grow with your business and remove the burden of HR responsibilities by allowing you time to concentrate on the development and growth of your business, while we manage your administrative overheads.

How it Works

Once you appoint freespirit, you provide a list of your existing staff and their details. The staff are then employed by freespirit under our ABN with new employment contracts that freespirit will provide. The transfer of the staff's employment is a electronic simplistic one signature approach.

Q&A’S

Q You say that it costs up to 50% in overhead to maintain staff. Would you please explain?

A Please just add up the costs of people & their time involved in administering people in your business. Include costs of accountants, bookkeepers - who do the: payroll; salary packaging; FBT administration; expense claim administration; candidate advertising & sourcing, vetting of resumes and interviewing; and then lawyers involving disputes. Then you add the management time in dealing with staff issues and administrative matters. Then on top you add the overhead & time of that support staff and you should arrive at a similar substantial number.

Q How can you do it so cost effectively?

A This is our business, this is what freespirit specialises in. Plus we have a proven streamlined paperless system and a professional team 100% dedicated to getting the job done.

Q Won't I Lose Control of My Business?

A We say quite the reverse. By freeing up management’s time from the day to day administrative tasks it gives them more time to work on the business, rather than just in the business. It allows more resources to be devoted to the core of the business that produces the value and the income. By being able to hit the accelerator to the business it provides more power to the management engine.

Q Won't I Lose Control of My Staff?

A No. freespirit acts on your instructions. freespirit employ the staff under our ABN but you are responsible for the ultimate decision on all hiring and firings! freespirit just do the paperwork. This gives you more time to interact personally and to performance manage the staff. This added management contact is perceived as showing interest and again helps reduce staff turnover.
