Performance Management

“Managing underperforming employees is a challenging and often complicated process” 

 

Leaders need to be confident in knowing what they ‘can and can’t’ say to employees when conducting performance management conversations.

 

Employers need to follow the correct and legal process to fairly and safely dismiss an employee for performance or conduct reasons.

 

Our consultants can advise and assist you throughout the entire performance management process, and provide any of the following services:

 

  • Advise on exit strategies, options and associated risks
  • Facilitate performance and disciplinary meetings
  • Draft documentation & letters
  • Provide advice and representation to the employer
  • Advice on termination of employment
  • Advice on alternatives to dismissal
  • Management of redundancy processes
  • Conduct dismissal meetings
  • Workplace Investigations

People and Culture

Most organisations seek out our help in this area when they are experiencing significant change or growing pains, which often results in a variety of people and culture problems.

 

But if you don’t know what’s broken, how do you fix it?

 

The best way to understand your workplace culture is to measure it. Our survey question design and assessment methods cut through the clutter and highlight the risks and opportunities that exist within your organisation.

 

We also believe, that ‘big is not always better’ when it comes to employee surveys. At Radford HR we take a slightly different approach, including obtaining a blend of data from surveys, 1-1 interviews and focus groups. This approach results in better data quality, which ultimately leads to better solutions and outcomes for your organisation.

We obtain quality data through the following methods:

 

  • Employee Engagement Surveys
  • Pulse Surveys
  • Retention Interviews
  • Culture Focus Groups
  • Culture Interviews
  • Career Coaching
