As part of our three-year plan, FTMA has invested in to a new FTMA HR Platform for members, which was launched on the 13 February.

We recognise we are not an industrial relations organisation, however, we have worked hard with Catie Paterson HR Consultancy to create a wide range of resources and contacts, that will ensure the FTMA HR Platform is a one stop shop for your HR needs.

Furthermore we are building a HR Services Directory to help members with everything from EBAs, to redundancies, safety audits, Employee Wellbeing Programs, Immigration lawyers and general lawyers, to name but a few. This network will continue to grow, so if there is any area members specifically need a contact for, let me know and we will chase it up.

The platform is 100% free for members and includes resources such as:

Checklists for everything you need to know when it comes to employing people. There are checklists, with corresponding videos to explain each topic in detail covering the following areas:

  • Team & Communications
  • Remuneration & Incentives
  • Recruitment & Selection
  • Policies & Procedures
  • Performance, Training & Development
  • Induction & Onboarding
  • Ending Employment & Exiting Employees
  • WHS

On top of these brilliant checklist, which can be downloaded or used as an online document, we have a wide range of other resources including:

  • Unions in the Workplace
  • Income Tax & Superannuation
  • National Employment Standards
  • Enterprise Agreements
  • Awards Across Australia
  • Employee vs Contractor
  • Equal Employment Opportunity
  • Paid Parental Leave
  • Workplace Surveillance
  • Long Service Leave
  • Mental Health & Wellbeing Policy
  • Domestic & Family Violence Policy
  • Employment Contracts
  • Working in the Heat & Cold Policy
  • Drugs & Alcohol in the Workplace Policy
  • Wage Guides for relevant Awards
  • Everything you need to comply with NHVR
  • Credit Application Form

These are but a few of the resources currently available, and you can be assured, we will be continually growing the resource library and HR Directory.

The FTMA HR Platform will also include an Ask Catie section, where you can type in your enquiry and we will come back to you with the relevant information.

We wanted our members to know we have them covered with their HR needs and we believe our one-stop FTMA HR Platform will not only help, but save our members considerable money.

If an individual company was to go and create these important resources, including policies, it would cost in excess of $12k, but FTMA has forked out the funds to provide these resources to our members 100% FREE.

We look forward to continuing the great work with Catie Paterson, which will include some targeted Webinars in the coming months.
