Organizational and Job Analysis
We help you align your organization to become more adaptable to the business environment. The following services we can provide you:
Using a functionality analysis tool, we graphically display allocation of work duties and responsibilities within your team. We then work with you to identify areas of inefficiency, double-ups and gaps, as well as areas that are reliant on individuals.
This gives you a clear vision of how to streamline your operation and ensure succession planning for key functional areas.
The position description acts in two ways – it sets the expectation of what a person will do in their job and enhances your corporate image during the recruitment process.
We help you write position descriptions which clearly state areas of responsibility, duties, performance expectations and the skills, experience and attitudes required to succeed. To convey an effective message during recruitment, we also reflect your culture, values and objectives in the template.
We offer labor compliance programs to ensure that your organization is safe from any legal suit. These are all common ‘black holes’ for employers and, given the risk of hefty fines for non-compliance,compliance is an area that businesses must keep abreast of HR Audits.
Our HR Audit will complete a systematic and thorough investigation of your HR practices with two key questions in mind: are you compliant and do your systems show best practice for your business size?
We work logically through every stage of the employment life cycle, from recruitment to exiting. We take the time to read the relevant legislation and cross-check it with your documents, policies and procedures.
You will receive a written report and a face-to-face meeting to discuss the audit findings. We will help you set an action plan with clear priorities based on potential risks and benefits.
Each day, a business can be faced with general compliance questions: What pay rate should this person be on? Do we need a smoking policy? What should we include in the letter of offer?
As your HR Solutions Partner, we can advise you on these questions as they arise and create the policies, letters, checklists and other materials needed to keep you compliant.
Performance and Compensation
Are you getting 100% output from your staff?
• Do your staff know how their job makes a difference to business performance?
• Have you set goals and targets at a business, team and individual level?
• Do you regularly review and give feedback on your staffs’ performance?
• Are your staff paid in a way that motivates performance?
If you answer ‘No’ to any of these questions, your HR practices may need adjusting to increase your staff performance. This will directly affect the bottom line performance of your business.
Key Performance Indicators
A clear, concise understanding of what needs to be achieved for your business success is essential.
If every team member knew exactly what to do and how this contributed to the organisation’s performance, imagine how much more focused they could be. Imagine the results on your business!
We take you through a series of steps designed to set your goals, objectives and KPIs at all levels – organisation, team and individual. And then we talk about how you will make them a reality!
Performance Feedback System
Performance feedback systems are one of the most powerful HR tools available. High performance businesses have effective feedback systems embedded in their culture.
Your performance feedback system isn’t just about formal meetings with staff once a year.
We work with you to identify what ‘high performance’ means for you and your staff and how it can be measured. We then design the tools that you need to review and give feedback on performance: performance appraisal documents; training for managers, supervisors and staff; feedback agendas and schedules; procedural checklists and recording systems.
Performance Management - Counselling, Discipline and Termination
There are times when your staff may need ‘realignment’ in their performance or behaviour.
This is an area which is complicated by constantly changing industrial relations laws and the high risk that, if you handle it the wrong way, you could end up in legal difficulty.
Successfully handling performance and behavioural issues comes from a simple, systematic approach based on fairness, firmness and thoroughness.
We help you to navigate the minefield that is performance management using tools such as:
• policies, guidelines and templates for counselling, discipline and termination
• training for your supervisors and managers in effective performance management
• supporting your performance management processes as your HR Partner advice (non-legal) on a case-by-case basis when you face performance issues.
