MAJOR UPGRADE IS ALMOST HERE

Workforce Guardian is about to launch a major upgrade of our online HR systems to ensure that we continue to deliver Australia's leading HR and employment relations service for employers and maximum benefits and value for our subscribers. The upgrade includes many exciting new features and benefits that our subscribers have asked us for, and which will continue to help our subscribers achieve HR best practice and compliance with Australian employment law.

One of these excting new features will be our Workplace Health & Safety Centre that will set a new standard in affordable and easy to use WH&S solutions for Australian small businesses.

Workforce Guardian has grown strongly since launching the first affordable and easy to use online HR and employment relations system for employers.

Today, we remain the most trusted HR solution of choice for thousands of users including small to medium businesses, micro businesses, enterprises, associations and not for profits, accountants, bookkeepers and business advisors and franchises and national groups.

Every day, Workforce Guardian helps employers to hire, manage and exit employees with confidence. We make it easier to manage the complexities of Australian employment laws, including over 600 pages of legislation, 800 sections, 122 Modern Awards, 10 National Employment Standards, transitional provisions and legal jargon in the Fair Work system alone.

Stay tuned for more exciting news which will be released in our June newsletter.
