When talking about the consultancy services available for Human Resources, perhaps the most simplistic way to convey what the Real+ Consultants can support you with is to identify where Human Resources feature across your business. Lets take a walk through the People side of your business right from the beginning.
1. People Strategy
After developing your business purpose, vision and values, its time to take a look at the people that you will need to make it happen. Consideration would be given to the roles required now as well as in the short and medium term. As a side, it is smart to check this against your financial budget, knowing when you’ll get revenue, how long you’ll be in the red, and the triggers for employing the next team member will be key to your success past year 1.
2. Job Descriptions
With a rough outline of the organisational chart, it’s time to work exactly what each role will be responsible for, the accountability and reporting lines and of course the key skills knowledge and attributes you’ll be wanting in the person to fill the position.
3. Key Performance Indicators
People want to know how they are performing, and that want to be able to judge for themselves. To ensure you and your team remain on the same page with what’s required and remove any grey matter set benchmarks for performance. These are know as KPI’s.
4. Remuneration Strucutres
When it comes to remuneration, some roles and the associated personalities of their typical inhabitants perform better under different structures. Designing the right structure can help drive performance and employee engagement. Designing incentive schemes, bonus structures as well as reward and recognition plans right can be a definer for your success.
5. Reporting & Accountability
Its one thing to have a performance based remuneration structure, and KPI’s, but how are you going to collate the data that provides the results? Reporting tools for each role allows for transparency of activity and creates a pathway for accountability for activity and results.
6. Review (Monthly and Annual)
A formal feedback program is known to increase employee engagement, job satisfaction and drives overall improvement of business performance and career development. review is a lot more than telling someone they have had a great day as you walk through the office, although that will be important to. Creating a formal structure as well as annual time plan will keep you on track to ensure your meetings are scheduled and anticipated.
7. Induction & Exit Program
Setting people up on the way in and learning from them on the way out provide opportunities for change within your organisation, and in both instances can add invaluable learning. A minimum 30 day plan to get your new team member up and running, that starts before they step foot through the door will minimise the lag time for on-boarding. The exit program for a outgoing team member starts at the moment we know they are leaving, be that from their own doing or yours. Hand over at any level, be that to the business or the incoming replacement is vital for the retention of valuable IP.
These are just some of the areas of Human Resources that the Real+ team can support you with, be that working with you to create your own content, deliver content for you, or mentor you through the maze that can be People.
