What is a STAR Workplace and why should I have this in my business?
STAR Workplace is a unique tool that measures both employer and staff satisfaction, as well as how your staff’s everyday activities link back to your business strategy. STAR Workplace allows you to benchmark your business against other small and medium enterprises, providing you a snapshot of where your business is today and identifying areas of action.
Through this program and the Staff Satisfaction Survey, you can measure and highlight issues within your business. And, more importantly, it also collates employee and employer data to produce a report that can serve as a starting point for business improvement and change.

STAR Workplace Background
Using research-based on implementation of internationally accepted models, the STAR Workplace Program was developed as a self-assessment tool to enable organisations to understand and learn how their own strategy is implemented and identify areas for improvement. This is a perpetual process – not a “one-off” change program. As a result, the STAR Workplace Program creates a benchmark for ongoing business improvement and employee engagement.
The measurement system is the underlying method of data analysis. For any workplace, the STAR benchmark goal is 75% or
above. Throughout the report bar graphs will also assist you with your planning priorities, using the internationally recognised Risk Management System:
- Green – Priorities for SustainabilityThis represents results that achieve a rating of 75% or more. These are factors which show strength in your result.
- Gold – Priorities for ManagementThis represents results that achieve a rating of 67% – 74%. These are factors which require management attention.
- Red – Priorities for RiskThis represents results that are less than 67%. These are factors that are high risk in your business.
The Workplace Program is best used in conjunction with a workplace improvement program and assists in developing a 12 month HR Plan.
The STAR Workplace Program also includes a set of reports to assist you in project managing improvements in your business:
- 12 Month Action Plan
- Team Report
- Human Resources Framework Self-Assessment Dashboard
- Detailed STAR Workplace Report
