People, people, people: Doing the right thing and doing things right with the people who work for you will always be one of the biggest challenges for business owners.

We hear a lot about being a ‘good employer’, but did you know that being a ‘good employee’ is an equal responsibility in law? We help you balance these two golden rules and develop a positive team and work ethic. Here are some of the ways we can help:

  • The good stuff: recruit the right people via great job adverts, selection criteria, interviewing techniques, reference checking and employment agreements, and retain the right people by having excellent management techniques, performance appraisals, organisational culture and effective communication
  • The hard stuff: when the fit isn’t quite right, create appropriate exit strategies, disciplinary procedures, performance improvement plans and help to manage grievances. Reorganise your people by restructuring, job redesign and re-deployment
  • The supportive stuff: re-train people, develop new managers, use coaching and mentoring, training and development
