CHANGE TO THE EASTER

Weekend Holidays

From this year onwards, we have a new public holiday. In December, the Queensland Industrial Relations Bill was passed, which means that from 2017 Easter Sunday in Queensland will now be a public holiday.

Where we previously had only Easter Friday, Saturday and Monday as public holidays, Queensland now classes the most religiously significant day of the weekend as a public holiday too. Businesses that operate across the Easter weekend, whether it’s in the hospitality or retail sector, need to be aware that the penalty rate loadings for this day will change. If you’re unsure of how this change will impact your business, or if you need help in updating your payroll systems to accommodate the new pay rates, talk to the team at Workplace Central about the best ways to be compliant in your operations. For customers of Workplace Central’s Workforce Management service, there’s nothing you need to do or change in your work practice because we’ve done it for you. Workforce Management is a complete solution taking care of recruitment, occupational compliance, payroll, human resources, health, safety and workers’ compensation, as well as reporting. Essentially, you’ve got everything covered and you’re future-proofed for any changes to legislation or workplace requirements. You can let the employment experts manage your workforce and get back to managing your core business.

THE FOUNDATION OF ALL GREAT REAL ESTATE

professionals

In an industry faced with constant change, some fundamental real estate truths remain. Honesty, integrity and hard work are the foundation of all great real estate professionals and these characteristics are at the heart of Linda Feltman’s success. A huge range of digital platforms continue to change the method and pace of real estate transactions; and, with buyers and sellers more informed and better prepared than ever before, the best agents are harnessing innovation to improve their marketing power and service style. Specialised apps, price predictors, social media, free market research, and cheap, independent online property reports have all worked to benefit the consumer. There has never been more interest in residential real estate than there is today, and better educated consumers almost certainly lead to more efficient transactions. Linda has focused on changing the way real estate is sold in Pelican Waters and the results speak for themselves, with properties on the market for less time and premium prices being achieved. She has also received endorsements by her clients on ratemyagent.com.au as the most recommended agent in Pelican Waters. So, while it’s true that facets of the industry will continue to change at an incomprehensible pace, it’s comforting to know that the fundamental truths remain.
