thumbs_up  HR / IR DOCUMENTATION AND AUDITS

All businesses are continually faced with risks. Managing these risks effectively is an important part of responsible business operations. We have insurances in place to cover many of our assets. We have financial audits, security systems, fire alarms, etc. One of the biggest risks businesses have is their staff, yet very often our management of this risk is at best incomplete, and sometimes quite poor.

We will take you through the following process:

We will conduct an Audit of your business.  The Audit covers:

green_tick Compliance with HR and IR Laws and Regulations

green_tick Conformance with Good Business Practice

green_tick Policies and Processes

green_tick Documentation and Staff File Management

You will receive a comprehensive report with Priorities for Action to bring you in line with requirements and TAKE THE RISK OUT OF YOUR BUSINESS.

In the second step, we will help you to fix whatever gaps we have found, and in the most appropriate way for your business. This will include re-orientation for management and staff when necessary.

thumbs_up PERFORMANCE COACHING

Performance Management is critical in linking your people to the strategy of your organisation - "Linking people to profit". High performing individuals and teams lead to business success and increased profits.

Most organisations have real difficulties with performance management. Everyone - employees and managers alike - hate the annual chore of reviewing performance. It's too hard to face the realities of setting up a meaningful system with objective and measurable criteria. And even if we do this, it's then too stressful on both managers and employees to talk about the realities of an individual's performance, so all too often we just opt out. Research suggests that less than 40% of required assessments are ever completed. People don't like being judged, and the fear of conflict takes the focus away from real and meaningful conversations.

Everest Resources can help you to develop and implement simple and practical performance management systems and processes that really work. Then staff and managers can approach reviews without fear and stress. The focus moves from finding fault and laying blame, to a culture of continuous improvement. We measure individual performance against previously agreed criteria, and we can also measure the capability of the organisation as a whole. Improvement strategies are agreed upon and put into place.

Often it can be useful to have a third party involved in the performance review process, to provide a degree of balance and impartiality, or sometimes merely to facilitate the whole process - we can provide this service, bringing a practised and experience perspective to discussions.

Case Study

This client had a successful creative business. With 12 employees, they were seen as leaders in their niche market.
A year previously, their growth triggered internal recruitment to meet the market need. The client promoted their Chief Designer to a management role of the design team.

Now 12 months down the track, the Chief Designer was frustrated managing others, and the business owner was equally frustrated by the performance and errors in the team.

The business owner did not know how to address his concerns with his key employee for fear of losing him. So he did not address it at all for 6 months. Meanwhile the other employees were given performance reviews, but not the Chief Designer.
The client approached us to assist him in addressing the issues and be guided through a process - as this was uncharted territory for him. He said "Help, I feel like we need a marriage counsellor!"

The Facilitated Performance Coaching Framework was perfect for the situation. The results speak for themselves. The employee did not enjoy the current role and was able to self direct his future with the company. The development plan agreed upon by both parties was to establish his role in an advisory capacity, and KPI's were developed that if met, provided him with an option for equity.
