New HR tools to improve productivity
The biggest Australian player in the outsourced payroll industry, Aussiepay will
be rebranding as Employgroup this week, in a move to provide solutions to manage
the full spectrum of employee functions, and ultimately enhance the productivity
for Australian businesses.
Dean Morelli, the Managing Director of Employgroup says the evolution of the
company is in direct response to clients' requirements to comprehensively manage
"The spectrum of issues that arise in the course of managing employees is
increasing in complexity and challenging. Over the past two years, following
client requests, we have developed the capability to provide the full range of
services, not just payroll compliance. Employgroup will be the first company to
provide the complete spectrum of web based employee management solutions in the
Australian market from payroll through to human resource management and award
Employgroup is the new umbrella parent of a number of services including the
existing Aussiepay and ePayroll, together with the new offerings of EquipHR,
Synchronise and eCorporate.
Employgroup's new range of services is designed to enhance employee engagement
for businesses - a vital element in improving business productivity.
"Employee engagement can make or break a business and has a real impact on
performance. Staff who are actively and willingly engaged at work are far more
productive, enthusiastic and committed to the success of their company.
Employgroup's solutions will enable management to free up valuable time to
engage with employees face-to-face," said Dean.
A 2013 Gallup report (The State of the Global Workplace) found that an estimated
76 percent of Australian employees are either not engaged or actively disengaged
from their organisations. This can undermine business productivity and growth.
The report states that the dissatisfaction is costing the economy about $54.8
billion a year.
Dean says that engaged staff are the business equivalent of rowers rowing in the
same direction with a determination to win. Unified teams with a sense of
purpose, ownership and a determination to win, result in better outcomes, both
in sports teams and business.
"Our new suite of management products and services provide the systems,
structure, discipline and transparency that regularise interactions between
staff and leadership teams. This results in improved employee-employer
relationships and ultimately improved productivity through better communication,
time management and alignment," he said.
Employgroup will be officially launched at a function at the Museum of
Contemporary Art on August 20, where guest speaker journalist and author Narelle
Hooper will present her insight into the benefits of a workforce actively being
engaged with their organisation.
Narelle Hooper is one of Australia's most respected communicators, with a deep
understanding of what makes our leaders, companies and the economy tick. The
former editor of the Australian Financial Review's highly regarded BOSS
Magazine, Narelle is currently writing a book on employee engagement and its
effects on the Australian economy.
