Every business is its own “People House”. It’s often said that ‘our people are our biggest asset’ and it’s about getting the right people in the right jobs, engaging and retaining them, and resolving any issues along the way.
The concept of the People House is that you provide the roof over your employees head – the roof is your business strategy and direction – what you are doing so that the right roles can be identified to meet your business needs and we work with you to support that vision.
Every house needs good foundations and this is the policies and processes that you have in place for your employees. Yes, there is a mound of employment legislation to comply with but we see this as making policies effective and appropriate to the size and type of your business – setting the expectations for your employees as to the “way we work around here” so that if you do have issues in the future, then they can be resolved quickly and effectively.
The front door leads your new employees via recruitment into the rooms of the house which enable you to manage each aspect of an employees time with the business from recruitment right through to exit, whether it be:
- engaging and recognizing employees
- managing performance (or underperformance)
- ’family friendly’ issues
- disciplinary and grievance issues
- exit (either by resignation or dismissal)
We can help and advise on the practical and pragmatic interpretation of policies and procedures, and help you to manage your employees so that you can achieve your business strategy through your people.
