Who will benefit from this service?
This service is particularly useful either as an add on to our outsourced service or an integral part of the support offered. Those organisations who are going through a period of change, have a high volume of work or a specific project deadline, can use our resource to help them through. It’s intended as a short to medium term service to help you over those tricky periods.
Here’s some of the areas where this service would add value:
Strategy and Values
A clear plan which sets out direction, actions and deliverables is fundamental to achieving the results you need. Whatever stage your business is at I can help with developing and aligning HR strategy and plans to achieve the goals you’ve set. I align everything I do with your business mission, vision and values and if these are not yet in place, I can help you define them.
From a business vision, mission and values through to strategy and plans, I work alongside you to plan your future.
As your business changes and develops with people taking on increasing demands, the need for capable understudies to absorb additional responsibility and to replace people who leave becomes more important. Thorough succession planning can identify business critical gaps and key dependencies that could leave you exposed to skills deficits.
I can help you identify skills gaps, motivate, develop and retain your talented employees by producing organisational succession plans and identifying development needs for talented individuals.
When your people know what’s expected of them through clear objectives and structured job descriptions, they can engage with you and your business to achieve joint success. Good performance management keeps everyone on track, opens communication channels and increases engagement and productivity.
Linking job descriptions and objectives to your business plans and strategy means everyone is working towards the same goal. Meaningful appraisals keep the focus on what’s important and gives opportunities to agree on-going development or improvement plans.
Whether you are introducing a performance management programme, reviewing your current system or you simply need help writing meaningful objectives for your senior team which cascade through the business, I can help.
Fairness and consistency of treatment, particularly when things go wrong, can be the defining measure of a business. Matters of discipline and dealing with grievances can be emotive and difficult. Particularly taking into account personalities and the complexities of employment law.
My sensitive approach and knowledge of the legislation means I can advise you on potential outcomes and the consequences of any actions. I help you resolve issues to come to a mutually agreeable conclusion.
Acquisitions, Mergers and Organisational Change
Whether your business is the purchaser or the target company in a merger or acquisition, good HR support can help predict and manage any problems or challenges related to people as the merger or acquisition process unfolds. A thorough and dedicated process helps you understand the other company to highlight any additional cost or liability related to legal requirements, terms and conditions and benefits.
My support for your acquisition or change project includes a comprehensive due diligence process, and support with your integration plans.
Employee Engagement and Reward
Who doesn’t want employees who are truly supportive and enthusiastic about your business? Good employee engagement and reward strategies need not be expensive, but can keep employees motivated. I can help you to gain more commitment from your staff, make them feel appreciated and reduce staff turnover.
I’ll design cost effective engagement and/or reward strategies to bring out the best in your workforce.
Give me a call to discuss any of the above topics, or talk about your individual requirements.
