Michalle Faulkner

Marketing Communication Executives



FOUNDER MICHALLE FAULKNER – a local to the Sunshine Coast identified a need for business owners to gain critical support in establishing and maintaining their human resource needs.  Essentials 4 Business Pty Ltd began its operations in July 2005 and many clients are benefiting from the company’s professional, practical and thorough approach to human resource strategies. A common trend is that whilst business owners and key personnel understand the importance and value of strong human resource systems and practices, other critical areas of their business and constant demands on their time will often take priority – enter Essentials 4 Business.

Understanding your people, their drivers, motivators, expectations of company culture and career objectives, can provide you with the human framework for building a successful business.  Essentials 4 Business aims to assist you to develop this framework through jointly developed strategies that help you to create and maintain a productive, rewarding and winning workplace. Whether your business size is small, medium or large, the role that human resource plays is evolving rapidly and has become a strategic and critical component of organisational success.  Essentials 4 Business works alongside your in-house HR Manager or directly with you, as your virtual team of HR specialists, to deliver the specialist guidance you require.

One of the keys to a successful employment relationship is identifying the necessary steps to achieve well structured human resource practices and then maintain consistency in implementing them.  Company policies, well planned recruitment and induction procedures, together with training and operating manuals, will help you to ensure that you recruit, induct and educate your Employees about your company and its goals. Our team has a genuine passion for this industry and are hand selected for their commitment to ensuring our clients gain the maximum benefits associated with the newly created organisation we provide their business.  The Essentials team is fast becoming recognized in the business sector as a “mobile human resources department you can rely on for professional service and practical advice to everyday staffing issues".
