Many businesses may be losing out on profits due to a lack of people management; when small organisations grow the importance of establishing formal people management is often overlooked or not given priority. This may be due to the perceived cost of having designated people management staff or because formalising the task has simply dropped down the ‘to do’ list, maybe due to only few significant problems being experienced.
Often people management is undertaken by the director together with the office manager. At some point the organisation will have grown so much in size that the director may find that they spend too much time on people management matters or that more expertise is required.
Organisations that start applying a pro-active and effective approach to people management will see increased effectiveness and the bottom line improving.
This breakfast briefing, run by Lykke Leszczynski, will discuss these issues and leave you with the right steps to improve your business:
Are there re-occurring issues in your organisation such as retention and attendance?
Are the same ‘house rules’ applied across the organisation?
Are you spending too much time on people management matters?
Are any designated people management staff involved in meeting your strategic business plans?
Do your staff feel involved, engaged, and know how important their job is to the organisation and its customers?
Are you an Employer of Choice and is your workforce motivated, happy and healthy?
Getting your people management right will provide significant added value to your organisation’s performance and bottom line, and create a happier and healthier workplace.
A speaker at the recent “Human Resources in SMEs” conference attributed a 15% increase in net profits to the implementation of various new HR initiatives over a 2-3 year period. The organisation has a £40m annual turnover, 100 employees, and she was the first formal designated people management professional at this organisation.
