A productive workplace is one where people are safe, healthy, and treated fairly. Creating this sort of environment helps organisations recruit and retain skilled staff, minimise employment relationship problems, and avoid tragic and costly accidents.
The Big Six is a series of six brochures that provide checklists and tasks that draw attention to legal responsibilities and good employment practices. The brochures cover the key areas on which small and medium sized businesses commonly seek information. Links are provided to the Department of Labour’s online tools and to further information on: health and safety; hiring new employees; pay; holidays and leave; managing performance; and ending employment relationships.
The brochures also list other organisations that can help with starting and running a business.
