How We Can Help You
One of the biggest factors in an employee’s happiness and effectiveness is their relationship with their immediate manager. Driving performance in a team is a difficult task to achieve without some training and guidance. We work with new and existing managers to train them in employing the best practices and avoid some of the common pitfalls encountered when moving to a management position.
The biggest step in being a manager is the mental transition from focusing on personal performance to focusing on the performance of a team, this requires a change in approach to many of the daily tasks.
We help ease the transition and help your employees by developing skills such as:
- Time management
- Strategic thinking
- Interpersonal communication
- Resolving conflicts within a team
Staff Appraisals: carrying out staff reviews
Many companies choose to do their staff reviews annually, even once a year it can be a dreaded time for both employee and employer. Appraisals can be an emotionally charged discussion when an employee’s performance and income are being discussed. It is important how these reviews are handled as they can have a large impact on your employee retention rate and workplace satisfaction.
Managing staff absences
There is a myriad of reasons why someone is unable to show up to work, sickness alone is a huge cause of absence in UK workplaces. As a business you need to be able to adapt if employees do not show up on any particular day, it is also necessary to monitor and act on any unauthorised absence, even knowing how to take action if someone is unreliable on a regular basis.
