How to use checklists

Checklists can be a very useful tool aiding employers to achieve business objectives. Checklists make planning, monitoring and guiding operations an easier and a far more efficient process.

Checklists are also useful in ensuring that workplace processes are applied in a way that is consistent across the business. They also act as a memory aid and reminder to the user of the range of employment related factors that need to be considered by employers.

Checklists are provided to assist with various employment-related processes, for example, recruitment, induction, performance assessment, termination, etc. Checklists are also provided as 'prompts' for actions to take in relation to awards, agreements and contracts.

The HR Advance checklists are more than a simple task list, they can serve as strategic business tools for planning and effective human resource management.

All checklists should be supported by sound business practices and a set of sound workplace policies. For example, the HR Advance Termination Checklist is most effective if used in conjunction with the HR Advance Termination of Employment Policy.
