At Harrisons, we take pride in our ability to deliver exceptional services to our clients, helping them build strong, efficient, and thriving organisations. Our partnership with the Mackay Regional Council exemplifies our commitment to providing value and achieving outstanding results. In this case study, we will showcase our expertise in three key areas: recruitment for new Human Resources professional employees, the design and management of its first Graduate Recruitment and Development Program, and the provision of workplace relations expertise.
Mackay Regional Council, a prominent local government authority, sought to enhance its human resources capacity and capabilities. The Council recognised the need to attract skilled HR professionals, establish a structured graduate program, and handle workplace relations matters efficiently.
- Recruitment for New HR Professional Employees: Mackay Regional Council faced difficulties in recruiting qualified and experienced HR professionals tailored to their specific needs. The process was time-consuming, and they struggled to attract top talent to the regional area.
- Design and Management of a Graduate Recruitment and Development Program: The Council sought to establish a comprehensive graduate program to identify, nurture, and retain promising young professionals. However, they lacked the expertise to design and manage such a program effectively.
- Provision of Workplace Relations Expertise: Handling workplace investigations, unfair dismissal claims, and disciplinary processes can be complex and legally sensitive. The Council required expert guidance to ensure fair and compliant procedures.
