Why it’s a Fantastic Time to Grow Your Team!

At Harrison McMillan we’re believers in practicing what we preach when it comes to everything from workplace culture to recruiting staff for our own team.

That’s why we’re thrilled to have recently hired three new team members: Vanessa Giles, Sarah Crickmar and Christina Aucone.

Not only is it a fantastic time to hire as a recruitment agency, but across the board for businesses, thanks to the SA job accelerator grant.

Announced in July last year, there are a few months left to take advantage of the $10,000 incentive to hire new talent into your business, before the end of the financial year.


Here’s how it works:

  • The $10,000 incentive is open to employers that are liable for payroll tax in SA, and who also have a taxable wage bill between $600,000 and $5 million in the financial year immediately preceding the year in which they wish to claim the grant;
  • To qualify you need to register the new employee with Revenue SA within 90 days of the new employee commencing work;
  • The $10,000 incentive is for full-time employees, so the grant will be paid on a pro-rata basis for part-time employees;
  • If your wage bill is under the $600,000, you can qualify for a $4000 incentive.


The fine print:

The grant is paid in two instalments over a period of two years, with the first instalment payable on the employee’s first work anniversary, and the second instalment on their second anniversary.

While it’s a catch of sorts, this ensures businesses are rewarded for not only hiring, but also retaining talent.

It’s also a good incentive to hire the right people the first time around.

Whether you go through a recruitment agency, or organise your hiring in-house, there are costs involved in hiring staff. Hiring the wrong person can lead to performance management and high staff turnover, and see you back in the interview room before too long, so it’s definitely more cost effective to hire right the first time!
