Australia Sets the Standard
New National Standard Introduced for Human Resources
In a world first, People Smartz, as part of the HR Coach Network, is pleased to announce the release of the first national human resource standard, Human Resource Framework NS HRF-101: 2010.
"This is an exciting development for business in Australia" said Tony Perkins, Director of People Smartz Pty Ltd, "for the first time ever we have a national standard for the management of people in any size organisation."
The first national human resource standard was developed by representatives of industry across Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific to provide the consistency and security in human resource practices that organisations now need. Based on four years of research by the HR Coach Research Institute, the standard is designed to suit the full array of organisations – profit, not-for-profit, government, private, large and small. Importantly, the standard is there to provide guidance to organisations. It is a voluntary standard to help organisations meet their obligations as well as to develop their employees to optimise their goals.
For organisations without a structured internal human resource function, the Human Resource Framework provides a simple and consistent method of managing people on an annual basis. The framework provides a guide to good human resource disciplines within the organisation, much the same as an accounting process.
"Having a National Standard is also a world first, with Australia leading the way in establishing a framework for the management of people. At People Smartz, we are really looking forward to working with our clients to develop programs based on the standard."
