Drake Actualizer

Actualizer integrates the goals of the individual with the goals of the organisation.

How can organisations harness the individual’s primary motivation for self-actualization which, when unleashed will create untold performance and productivity?

Many organisations make some effort to create a working environment which addresses the desires for belonging and recognition. But most fall short of concentrating on the need for self-actualization, the need for the individual to feel that they are constantly growing and progressing with their career.

Actualizer can support any organisation seeking to gain more value from their existing human capital. For individuals with HR management elements in their roles, this technology assists to effectively identify talent in a diverse organisation using combinations of up to date data. The information collected is used to develop and advance talent; to engage employees through their own career advancement plan; and to improve recruitment practices - both internally and externally.

Through having engaged and well-developed human resources in the right roles, an organisation will experience greater productivity, higher staff retention and a lower overall total cost of their human capital.

Absence Management

What is the Cost of Absenteeism?

When your staff are engaged with the business and motivated to perform, the productivity of your workforce will grow exponentially. Frequent absenteeism is an issue encountered by most organisations, and one that can stifle the productivity and profitability of your business.

Did you know that the total cost of absenteeism can be up to three times the cost of an absent employee? It is estimated that 92 million days were lost in 2008, at a cost of $26.6 billion to the Australian economy.

In those organisations with high levels of workplace absences, up to half may have been avoidable.

How can you effectively manage absenteeism?

To increase the performance of your business, you must decrease the rates of avoidable absenteeism, therefore creating a more engaged and productive workforce.

While you are building your employee engagement through a positive, supportive atmosphere and staff development programs, there are other instruments you can use to help manage your absenteeism in advance.

The Drake Absence Management program is a consultative tool which gives you and your organisation greater visibility over the nature and causes of absenteeism, as well as providing solutions on how to improve this.

At Drake, we care about your employees’ health and well-being, as well as the performance of your business. This is why we have introduced Drake Absence Management, a central point to receive professional advice and absence reports for your organisation.
