What we do

We prefer to commence by doing a HR Audit to determine how well your HR strategy supports your business objectives.

Throughout the process, we listen and learn to find out how we can assist, identify gaps, and provide meaningful feedback and advice based on our extensive experience and knowledge.

Job evaluation and classification services are a way for an organisation to determine the worth or value of a job in relation to other positions in the organisation.

We can also help you have greater certainty to support remuneration decisions.

Your needs

Developing your job evaluation process

What we do

Many organisations need an independent review of their workforce and want to create an unbiased reward system based solely on job content.

The Futures Group develops targeted job evaluation processes to match your industry award, EBA or provides job evaluation and classification services for many government and private sector organisations. We provide stand-alone systems to be used internally by HR departments or once we have established a system, we can manage it and provide independent advice, classification reviews and reports for all job levels.

Tools

  • JOES© job classification program

The JOES© classification tool

What we do

JOES© is an on-line program that allows easy migration of older schemes and ensures compliance with relevant awards and pay legislation. System scoring was derived through analysis of the most widely used evaluation schemes available globally (Hay, Towers, Mercers) and adopting the weightings used by these schemes into JOES© using the geometric progression principle. The JOES© system has been extensively run in parallel with all of the most widely used schemes to ensure parity of scoring with them.

Tools

  • JOES© job classification program

Customised Job Evaluation services for private and public sectors

What we do

We can customise the JOES© system to meet your individual company requirements and can undertake the work to amalgamate different award conditions and pay levels to cover all roles in one system.

For WA government agencies, The Futures Group has adapted the BI/PERS classification system to JOES© to remove the paper-based process with a software program that:

  • Stores all the relevant information
  • Calculates the factor scoring
  • Allows work to be tracked and salary modelling and job descriptions to be developed
  • Provides a repository for future reference.

The system can be managed by HR departments and allows further customisation to meet an individual organisation’s needs.

Tools

  • JOES© BI/PERS program

Benefits

Your job evaluation and classification systems efficiently and accurately determine the worth or value of a job in relation to other positions in the organisation to provide certainty for staff and to support remuneration decisions.

Almost every organisation will have to investigate a complaint, alleged employee misconduct, or a potentially undesirable situation in the workplace at some point.

We support organisations through the process of workplace investigations in Perth and regionally with a structured and professional approach.

Workplace Investigation

What we do

The Futures Group provides independent and impartial investigation services for situations ranging from dealing with informal complaints to significant and complex formal investigations. Our consultants are highly qualified and recognised in this field.

We systematically gather the facts, sort out all the details, analyse the information and reach a conclusion that leads to action within the workplace; or a comprehensive response to an external complainant or agency such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The internal or external perception of how thoroughly and objectively that investigation has been conducted is critical.

Benefits

Through our workplace investigation leaders will have defined and measureable results that they hold themselves and others accountable to deliver.

You should be aware of your responsibilities under Fair Work Act 2009 and in particular the Workplace Gender Equality discrimination laws – but if you’re not, it could be an issue.

The Futures Group helps organisations ensure compliance by undertaking the necessary data collection and analysis and focusing on developing effective measures to address any gender inequality issues that are revealed and resolve any issues such as workplace bulling.

Your needs

Private sector organisations with a workforce of over 100 are required to provide a Gender Equality report and submit a workplace profile.

What we do

  • equal Pay
  • equal Support (for example, family)
  • Australia’s productivity and efficiency

  • Providing advice and developing relevant policies, strategies and improvement initiatives

  • Developing a communication strategy to ensure the relevant stakeholders are informed, have access to, and are provided with, the opportunity to comment on the report.
