The barrier to start a business is at its lowest but the task to start, build and run one is as difficult as it has ever been. From Hire to Fire & Everything In Between reveals Natasha’s 9 Step Employee Lifecycle, the framework for all the factors involved and relevant templates to keep you on track and out of court and makes managing your employees career journey easy. Doing it right by your employees is good for them and for your business.
There are legal challenges to be faced within employment law; there’s the cost of hiring and managing employees, whilst trying to avoid and prevent discrimination, bullying and terminations – to name just a few. So where do entrepreneurs get it wrong with their employees? They typically:
- Have no structure or framework
- Have limited time, money and resources
- Figure that employees will just get on with it – they get paid a salary to do that right?
Natasha has developed an Employee Lifecycle – 9 Step Framework that reveals all the factors involved in your employees transition through their career journey with you. Making your employee relations easy and helping you grow your business more quickly without the employee headaches.
“There is no doubt that managing people is the hardest part of running a small business. It is complicated, challenging and changing. Natasha Hawker has written a book to demystify managing people, and delivered it in a way that makes sense, it is hugely practical and a must read for any business owner.”
Andrew Griffiths, Australia’s #1 Small Business & Entrepreneurial Author
“I was very fortunate to meet Natasha Hawker at a Conference and felt so inspired by her enthusiasm that I got hold of her book “From Hire to Fire”. I found it to be an excellent summation of events that occur every day in the workplace with ready tips in how to deal with these situations. Natasha’s goal in writing the book was for it to sit “doggy eared” on managers desk and being referred to as a guide when these situations arise unannounced. This objective has been achieved and I would recommend any small business owner who is unfamiliar with managing staff to get hold of the book as it is a great knowledge base to deal with these situations”.
Brian Doughty, The Outsourced CFO
“Natasha and her book have been such a career (and life) changing introduction for me. They have both provided such support and clarity and her book, ‘From Hire to Fire’ has been a well-used HR manual for us to use. It is such a well written book, that is very easy to read, for someone without specialist training in the area. Such an asset to our business!”
Michelle Hyde, Director – Spring Forward Family Centre
“Natasha Hawker’s book From Hire to Fire and Everything In Between has been enormously helpful to me and my role. This book is excellent – for me this is a very helpful how-to guide in the disorientating world of HR. There are so many business books out there and reading a bad one is a waste of my time: if only I had this when I was running a team of 16 staff back in 2007 or even more so when I had my first management job back in 1996 looking after 5 youngsters straight out of University, with none of them in the same city. A great read!”
