Every employer aspires to have a workforce that performs well, turns up to work on time and puts in effort to go the extra mile and by managing an employee there is no reason this cannot be achieved.
Always give new recruits a thorough induction so they start off as you mean them to go on and to make sure you meet all your legal obligations. This ensures that the new employee is given the best chance possible to succeed and the company maximises the investment it has made during the recruitment process. Probationary Periods are detailed in the contract of employment. The length of the Probationary Period will be dependent on the job and role in terms of the complexity and the position. The HR Dept can help you design the induction training and provide appropriate probationary review forms.
Appraisals are the major tool that companies use to identify individual’s performance. This is a two way process that formally records an employee’s performance over a set period, usually 6 months or a year. This is an ideal time to look at development needs and future potential as well as current strengths and allowable weaknesses.
As well as creating tailor made procedures for your company, The HR Dept can run training programmes for managers and staff to ensure both parties get the maximum benefit from the appraisal system.
The HR Dept can also provide 360 degree appraisals for companies that want a more in-depth approach.
