There can be some very controversial and frustrating issues for businesses and managers.

Despite what is seen on TV, businesses cannot dismiss an employee without following a fair process.

Perhaps you want to look at different options you have?

HRinvasion can offer advice, support and mediation on your behalf to guide you through the process.

I'm ok, they haven't worked here for a year!

Many employees believe that until an employee has worked for 52 weeks they can't take a company to an ET.

Any current employee, ex-employee or job applicant may submit a claim, outside the one year qualifying period.

To avoid what can lead to substantial claims at Employment Tribunal, it is in the best interests of the business to have a procedure in place to deal with them.

Have you been faced with a letter of complaint from a member of staff and not sure how to deal with it?

It may often appear to be none consequential and unnecessary or a waste of management time dealing with the issue.

Incentives

 Click here to request a fact sheet

Are your employees not reaching their true potential?
Do tough economic times mean that you need to increase your competiveness?
Will just paying more or making a financial incentive be enough?

 

Having the correct incentives in place to help motivate your employees is essential to ensuring your employees keep pushing themselves to achieve success. Most companies provide some form of incentive, but yet fail to provide an incentive scheme that drives not only the individual, but their team, the wider team and the overall business. Having the correct process in place will help bring all the different areas of your business together to work as one for long term success.

But I need to reduce costs not increase them?

An incentive scheme does not necessarily mean increasing your costs or providing a financial incentive scheme. Yes employees are financially driven, but this is not always the case, especially in these uncertain times providing none financial incentives that individual employees want will benefit both parties more.

A Job Description is a very helpful tool in ensuring that your employees know and the business knows what type of tasks are required of them. A Job Description is a basic HR requirement to ensure many other aspects of HR come together to provide the best platform for your employee to work from. It is important to update these regularly to ensure long term success.

All our job roles are similar so can't I just have one for all employees?

In certain environments several employees doing similar roles will have very similar Job Descriptions but they still should be different. In todays world with the increase in administration or computer operated environments many job roles will be very similar and its ok to have common tasks detailed in several Job Descriptions but if they have different job titles then there should be a different Job Description.

Key Performance Indicators

 Click here to request a fact sheet

How do I decide on an employees KPIs?
Can an employee have to many KPIs?
Do I need to set KPIs?

 

Key Performance Indicators or KPIs can be used in a lot of different situation to drive a business forward. Historically KPIs were used in sales type roles but now the benefits of setting individual key performance indicators mean they are being used within a wide variety of roles. KPIs ensure that along with maintaining their required job level the employee is also striving for success, an individuals KPI might be to do with being involved in a larger project rather than their "normal" day to day job role.

Can a KPI affect the whole team and not just an individual?

KPIs shouldn't just be set to drive success in an individual job role, the outcome of the employee achieving their KPI should have a positive impact on the team or department achieving their Key Result Area. A common mistake is to set to many KPIs for an employee, KPIs shouldn't just be a list of tasks but tailored objectives used to ensure an employee does meet the tasks within their Job Description.

Key Result Areas

 Click here to request a fact sheet

Isn't everything a Key Result Area?
Will it help my employees to become more productive?

 

Key Result Areas should be used across a business to highlight the key areas that need to be achieved either individually or collectively to ensure the business is successful. A Key Result Area may require several smaller job tasks to be completed successfully, the idea is that they bring together different elements and areas.

What's the difference between KPIs and Key Result Areas?

There is not much difference between KPIs and Key Result Areas. Key Result Area tend to be used to look at the overall areas that a team or department operate to ensure that they achieve their purpose during day to day tasks and with one off tasks. The KPI should be tailored to individual job roles to ensure the overall Key Result Areas are met.

Legislation

What legislation do I have to abide by?
How is it possible to keep up with legislation changes?
Can I not wait till someone tells me I'm going wrong?

 

Over the years there has been a significant increase in the amount of legislation that a business has to adhere to, we work with our clients to keep them informed of upcoming changes and recommendations so that you can concentrate on your business achieving great success. Even though certain areas of legislation might not be enforced the first time it is brought to your attention this is not a cert for all cases and all areas of legislation. The legislation required to be met by your business is to ensure a fair environment for all, meeting current legislation protects your employees but also your business from any personal wrong doings of an individual member of staff.

I think I don't need to do anything within my industry?

Legislation does change from sector to sector but the rules and regulations that protect employees from unfair treatment of employers is generally the same no matter what your business does.

Managing Performance

 Click here to request a fact sheet

Are employees letting your customers down?
Are staff letting you down?
Do you have an employee whose attitude at work is affecting your business?

 

There can be lots of reasons why employees do not behave as expected, it can be for personal reasons, something going on at home or may be something from their work environment like a lack of training or understanding of what's required. They may have personality clashes with other employees or supervisors. Some people sadly have no interest in doing the job or they may be ill. Whatever the reason HRinvasion can support you in all aspects of people management. There are two parties involved in a contract of employment and it has to work for both the employer and employees.

Are you going to lose custom if staff don't improve their performance and attitude?

This is probably one of the most immediate challenges affecting businesses and without doubt it can be extremely painful. There appears to be a myth that the law is only on the side of the employee . Employment law can be managed very effectively, it is all about knowing and understanding, 'how'? We at HRinvasion can help support with a performance management system. A process that measures performance will quickly identify poor performance and help to implement procedures for individuals to develop and improve.

We must not forget good performers. A good performance management system will rewards employees that are prepared to go that extra mile. Everyone likes to be appreciated and a little recognition goes a long way.

Mediation

 Click here to request a fact sheet

Do you need to hold a two meeting and not sure how to approach the situation?
Have you got to hold a difficult meeting?
Have you received a complain and not sure what route to take?

 

Providing a good mediation service to your employees will ensure that disputes and issues are dealt with in an efficient and timely manor. Most issues arise in the work place due to personality or cultural clashes and most of the time how the other person is being perceived is not how they intend to come across. Talking through issues and helping other employees see things from other perspectives often helps to ensure a speedy resolve to the issue.

Do you need to consult with employees and require some support?

Mediation is not only required during difficult meetings but it should be used during consultation with employees about any new changes, often when consulting about changes employers don't find it necessary to carryout detailed mediation to help communicate the idea and gain support. HRinvasion can help your business gain the most of mediation with your employees.

Having the correct motivation techniques in place to help drive your employees is essential to ensuring your employees keep pushing themselves to achieve success. Most companies provide some form of motivation, but yet fail to provide motivation techniques that drive not only the individual, but their team, the wider team and the overall business. Having the correct process in place will help bring all the different areas of your business together to work as one for long term success.

Having a job and being able to pay their bills should motivate employees?

New starters have said that they didn't get a good first impression about my business, why?
How long should a Probation period be for?

It provides a platform so both parties know what is expected.

The retention of knowledge and employees within a business is paramount to its success. Even if an employee wishes to leave your business should still be focusing on retaining the knowledge that person has of their job role and the business. Many business owners are scared of providing to much support and training opportunities as they know an employee may leave at anytime. HRinvasion works with companies to ensure that you can provide a retention strategy that adds value to your organisation and increases the percentage of employees staying with your business.

If I pay more then my employees will stay?
