Driving the sales, the growth and the ideas pivotal to the future success of the organisation are the people employed by your business.
The challenge you face is to first find the right people and then offer appropriate terms and conditions to make them join your organisation and stay with the company.
Are your employees aware of the aims and objectives of your business or is there a communication gap? How do you ensure that the people working in your organisation are sufficiently motivated? Do you regularly appraise their performance against measured objectives and ensure that workplace policies are known and observed? These are just a few of the 17 topics covered in 'Managing your employees' and are designed to ensure that you get the best from yout workforce.
Recruiting the right employees can be a challenge, with no guarantee of success, but using the right information and procedures will improve your chances of finding what you are looking for. The interview is your opportunity to thoroughly assess a prospective employee's suitability to become part of your organisation. You need to know how to plan and prepare for the interview, how to make it effective and what pitfalls to avoid. Our recruitment section should provide you with some valuable advice.
Recruiting staff is of course just the beginning. In order to maximise their potential you will need to offer some form of training. Our training section looks at effective training, personal development plans and NVQs. And, if you're serious and committed to developing your workforce you should consider the Investors in People standard. For general information about IIP click here . We have an in house Workforce Development Team who will be more than happy to discuss any issues you may have.

Unfortunately there is a potentially confusing mass of employment law that organisations need to be aware of but our section on this should ensure that you are informed of the most important of these in as painless a way as possible.
