The culture of an organisation will influence the engagement of the employees within your business and ultimately their productivity and performance. More than remuneration or conditions, more than professional development, it is your company culture that keeps good employees in their roles, or, results in them finding employment elsewhere.
Remuneration is generally understood to be the payment of wages or salary, plus benefits, to an employee for work performed. It can also be used as a tool to attract and retain employees.
There are a number of processes and tools that an employer can use to get the most out of their employees.
Leadership is a key challenge in businesses today, with the ever-changing external environment and the varying pressures that businesses encounter.
It can be a lengthy process to attract the right candidates and ultimately employ the right person for your business. But it is an important process to get right the first time, especially for a small business. To achieve this, you will want to ensure your entire recruitment and attraction process is sound and robust.
When hiring a new employee, it is common practice to include provision for a probation period in the offer of employment.
Oh oh! When was the last time you reviewed your Human Resource documentation such as policies, procedures and templates?
Having a Human Resources strategy that assists you in achieving your business goals.
This seems like a logical thing to do when running your own business. But instead, many small and medium business owners are ad hoc with their Human Resources, and always reacting to Human Resource issues. These issues then become big, expensive and disruptive to their business.
Often business owners are so busy on the day to day operations of their business that it is rare to think about the future.
It is common for business owners to get caught up in the day-to-day operational aspects of their business. They feel they ‘need to do everything’ for the business to be strong, as being the owner, they have invested a great deal of time and emotional capital in their venture. They have also invested a great deal of money.
