Keeping People

HR Policies, Procedures and Forms

Human Resources (HR) policies, procedures and forms establish a framework and set standards that guide how employees should conduct themselves as employees. This includes how employees perform their jobs, make decisions, interact with each other and manage the business operations of their employer. 


Workforce Planning

Workforce planning is the process of forecasting your staffing needs and working out the range of ways you can create and maintain the workforce in line with your business goals. 


Employee Handbooks

An employee handbook can create the foundation of employee performance and help protect your business against potential lawsuits, or it can be a document that confuses employees and makes it virtually impossible to maintain your legal defences. It all depends on how well it's written and put to use.

It is worth ensuring you are proactive and not reactive when dealing with your Employee handbook.  Trying to update, maintain or even creating your handbook on the fly can produce a document that is in fact inconsistent with the way your business is actually conducted.




Position Descriptions & KPIs

A well-written job description is one of the best investments an organization can make because it can be used in so many ways, including job evaluation, performance appraisals, reorganization, training, development and career planning.

At a business level, a key performance indicator (KPI) is a quantifiable metric that reflects how well a business is achieving its stated goals and objectives.

There are 4 main reasons why businesses should conduct surveys: 

1)      Uncover answers.

2)      Evoke discussion.

3)      Base decisions on objective information.

4)      Compare results.

You might survey your employees to determine the employee value proposition (EVP) they see in working for your business; employee satisfaction or engagement; workplace health; remuneration and benefits; recognition and reward; communication; mood and morale etc.

Although the process of conducting a survey can be therapeutic in itself it is the post-survey analysis, response and action that will ultimately determine how useful and effective the process has been… and whether employees become disillusioned with the process and your business or not.
