At Mastertek we love to share our experience.

We are a boutique consultancy focused on providing practical advice in relation to organisation design and employee engagement, performance and reward.  We believe that putting people first is critical to delivering sustainable business results – and we know how to create the employee engagement levels required to make it happen.

A desire to help build sustainable, high-performing organisations has been the common objective of our consulting team for over 20 years.  We continue to seek solutions to the big organisational challenges and to translate the complexity of human resourcing into practical, actionable strategies that our clients can implement.  Based on active research and collaboration between our consultants and global thought leaders we continue to uncover the shared traits of organisations that outperform their peers; what brings their people together and what enables them to succeed.

Our consultants have developed deep expertise across a range of related organisational practices that drive employee engagement and motivation from leadership development and performance management, reward strategy, job evaluation and salary system design through to employee engagement surveys and market benchmarking.

We’re the small firm that delivers big results.

Organisational Design and HR Strategy

Look inside any high-performing organisation and you will find a clear and present common purpose that unites its people, providing a source of inspiration and focus that endures short-term circumstances.  The purpose provides a foundation on which to foster a culture that breeds success and sets your organisation apart from its peers.  We develop programs that align with your strategic objectives and help to reinforce behaviour consistent with your organisation’s beliefs, culture & style.  We work with our clients to confirm and articulate the common purpose and values that inspire their people and differentiate them from their peers, and then develop practical HR strategies and HR action plans that bring the desired culture to life.

Organisation Structures

Organisation Structure Design Principles An effective organisation structure is one designed around the value chain of the organisation; ensuring resources are focused in the areas that they are needed most.  An effective organisation structure also supports the flow of information across the organisation and the workflows associated with your operational processes. For those working in local government, there are some clear obligations and responsibilities set out in the Local Government Act (the 'LGA').   The LGA requires the elected Council to; "determine an organisation structure, the senior staff positions within that structure and the resources to be allocated towards the employment of staff ". Importantly, Councils must review and re-determine the council’s organisation structure within 12 months of an ordinary election (and may well wish to further review the structure at other times, such as following a significant change to the CSP or broader operating context).  There are a number of things to think about when considering the most appropriate organisation structure for the council to adopt.  We've highlighted below some of the key inputs and approaches our team take when reviewing organisation structures - why not drop us a line to discuss how we can assist if your team is [...]
