It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that when employees feel valued and supported at work, they perform better. Ensuring that happens in your business doesn't need to be expensive or extensive as it’s usually the little things that make all the difference. Things like: flexibility around working hours, ability to work from home, access to an Employee Assistance Programme, additional holiday, bringing your dog to work, or having fruit in the office once a week. Every workplace is unique, but small things always matter. Employee wellbeing is something I can help with.
Having employees that want to work and do their best for you is what all employers strive for. Checking in regularly with your teams, reviewing and implementing staff surveys, listening to your team leaders and taking on board ideas, all help an individual stay in their role and give 100%. It takes a small amount of consistently sustained effort to make the change and I’m happy to show you how.
Occasionally, getting involved in more complicated Employee Relations issues, such as disciplinary or grievance procedures, is unavoidable. The good news is, I have extensive experience in this area and can help with initial investigations, conducting meetings or advising and supporting you to find the best way forward for you and your employees.
Getting the best out of your employees is not only good for you as a business, it's also good for your employees. Managing performance correctly and quickly helps to keep your employees on track and motivated to deliver. And the best bit is, it doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming. Training your managers to manage their team allows them to know their people and how they are performing. When things aren't working, then quick and effective action can really help. This is something I can help you with.
Restructuring and reorganisation
Restructuring does not always have to be something your company dreads. It can be a very positive change for the company - one that helps you to meet your performance goals and effectively manage cost. Good planning, strong management of the process and consistent and constant clear communication helps to remove the uncertainty of the situation. And I can help you achieve this.
