Every year UK businesses spend millions settling complaints and grievances that have been raised against them. Our research shows that with some very simple attention to appraisal detail and disciplinary processes, much of this money could be saved and put to much better use!
Appraisal systems are much maligned and are often a critically underused or even absent within some workplaces.
Used smartly, appraisals should motivate and inspire. They are an excellent tool for rewarding and managing talent. They are also an extremely effective way to avoiding disciplinary issues and reducing the incidence of grievances and complaints from employees. They help to manage challenging situations effectively and can provide a clear and creditable audit trail in support of organisations when complaints are raised against them and the threat of an industrial tribunal looms.
At IMJ HR we will assess your current process and practices and identify where you can make improvements to your current systems. We will educate and train managers in the efficient use of the appraisal system and how it can best support work-based disciplinary processes, and more importantly how dealing with challenging issues from the outset can avoid much deeper issues in the future.
A clear, efficient and well administered appraisal system can drastically reduce workplace disciplinary incidents and save organisation both time and money as an efficient preventative measure and can even increase productivity and outputs when used to highlight excellence and talent.
