Introduction to this guide
The purpose of this guide is to assist businesses in building more robust structures and policies for maximising the capability of their employees/teams and ultimately the organisation.
To provide an understanding of some of the reasons that difficulties occur so that they might be planned for, understood and mitigated.
That capability goes beyond disciplinary and that improving the capability of the team often reduces the need of such negative action. Jobs can undoubtedly be more mentally stressful today and with people also living longer and working longer we need to ensure that staff are supported and able to meet the demands of fast growing organisations.
The guide is what it states ‘a guide’, an opportunity to stretch your thinking about the way your organisation is structured, how you recruit and further support staff in your organisation. It is not meant to be prescriptive and we would always recommend that you took wider advice than this guide before implementing change that affects the lives of employees.
