Employee Development

It can be very easy to neglect the development of your employees. Everyone is busy. Everyone is doing an OK job. There are a million other things that take up a manager’s time. Employee development is a nice to have rather than a must have and you’ll get around to it at some point.

The challenge is, without development that “OK job” stops being “OK”. It isn’t sufficient to drive your business forward and help you achieve your business goals. Maybe you need to equip your employees with new skills as the market in which you operate continues to evolve. Perhaps you now have a more formal structure and you have people who are managing teams for the first time who haven’t really been equipped with the skills that they need in order to be able to do this.

This is where we can help.

Employee Development HR Consultancy

When thinking about employee development there are a number of areas that you need to consider.  Firstly, how are you going to measure performance?  Do your employees know what good looks like in their role?  Do your employees get regular feedback as to how they are performing and how they can improve?

Putting these basics in is the starting point.

From there you need to consider what skills and behaviours you need in the future and how you are going to develop them within your business.

Our experience tells us that the most successful businesses are those that appreciate the value that their people can bring and invest in their development.  These are the businesses we work with.

Lighter HR Solutions have supported numerous businesses to devise effective strategies and tools to develop their people and so enable their businesses to move forward.  We're not talking about endless paperwork that you come across in large businesses.  We recommend easy to implement processes that focus on conversation rather than form filling.  We look at continuous improvement rather than painful annual processes.

We have devised Competency and Behavioural Frameworks, implemented Performance Appraisal Systems, reviewed and enhanced client training provisions and delivered training on key management skills.
