People ManagementIt is often said that people are an organisation’s greatest asset but are you investing in your people so that they truly feel that they are an asset to your business, valued and supported by management? Do your employees have a voice?

At Linwood Consulting we have a special interest in human resource management. Struggling with engagement? High staff turnover? Poor culture? Looking to create a high performance workforce? We can help you with this and more.

We can help your organisation get its people management practices right. This will involve looking at your current policies and procedures and ensuring, where necessary, they meet any statutory requirements and comply with best practice. We can offer a light touch review or a full scale overhaul, depending on what is required.

Policies around performance management and learning and development can get left behind as businesses struggle to ensure that statutory requirements are met in other areas such as flexible working and parental leave. Meanwhile it is becoming more and more evident that effective performance management policies, job design and autonomy can have a positive impact on engagement. In a post-pandemic world this also includes the availability of hybrid working. High levels of engagement are not only good for your employees but for your business. In a tight labour market it makes business sense to ensure that your organisation is an employer of choice and one which can both retain and attract the best staff.

We don’t just leave it there. We will talk to your people to understand where there may be a mismatch between their expectations and those of your management team. That way you can be sure that any recommendations we do make will, if implemented, have a positive impact from day 1 and are tailored to your specific business and its unique challenges.
