Every employer needs employees who perform well, turn up to work on time and puts in effort to go the extra mile and by managing employees properly there is no reason this cannot be achieved.

Probationary Periods

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; our free induction check list will help you with this important task. This ensures that the company maximises the return on 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. Expert HR Solutions can help you design the induction training and provide appropriate probationary review forms.

Staff Appraisals

Appraisals are the key tool that identify any development needs or areas that deserve additional reward. In our experience development needs are rarely about technical performance, but almost always about behavioural issues. To help you with this we can help design competence based person specifications and appraisal systems. Whatever appraisal system you use it is a two-way process that records an employee’s performance over a set period. We recommend informal quarterly reviews and a formal annual review.

As well as creating tailor made procedures for your company, Expert HR Solutions. can run training programmes for managers and staff to ensure both parties get the maximum benefit from the appraisal system.
