Profitable People, a new Human Resources (HR) business has recently established in Jindabyne, servicing the Snowy Mountains Region.
Owner and HR Consultant, Kath Harris, understands that there is a need for these services in this area, considering recent, current and future population growth.
Over the last five years the region has grown exponentially with a compounding growth rate of 10.4%. With growth comes more business and Kath has specific services available for those in need of HR support during the high and low peak periods of our region.
Profitable People’s services are tailored to meet specific needs of our regional businesses and industry, and they are simple and easy to implement and follow.
For over two decades Kath has helped businesses to navigate workplace complexities, recruit staff, retain and manage high-calibre employees. Kath said; “Our goal is to help guide and free up employers from HR obligations so they can do what they do best – run a profitable local business supported by great people.”
Profitable People specialises in offering employers practical solutions. This includes designing recruitment strategies, remuneration and benefits advice, award interpretation, policy reviews, learning and development, performance management and termination support. Kath’s trusted and tailored approach puts progressive solutions into practice.
“When you get out of bed in the morning and get ready for your day, you want to be happy about where you work. That’s what I’m passionate about – in terms of helping staff and helping employers make the workplace a great experience for everyone.” said Kath.
From a HR perspective, Jindabyne is unique as it is primarily a tourist town. When winter arrives the population growth is extreme. A lot of people can be employed during these busy months but leave after the season is complete.
“A significant issue for small business owners in Jindabyne is to retain people within their business in a full-time, year-round position.” Said Kath. “I’m looking forward to helping employers and their staff work towards this.”
