Running a business involves people and it’s only a matter of time until people-related issues arise. Performance and behaviour are the most common concerns business owners present us with. It’s never straightforward and a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work. Understanding your specific circumstances is the key and that’s where we come in.

Performance Issues

In many cases employers wait too long before talking to us, hoping against odds they will be able to fix the problem without outside help. As in most cases, prevention is better than a cure as early advice can avoid costly or complicated situations down the track. Often, issues get out of hand simply because it’s been left too long or ignoring the problem hasn’t worked. Don’t worry, we’re here to help.

We take the time to understand your unique circumstances so we can give you tailored advice. We don’t live in a black-and-white world and help you explore the different courses of action, taking into account varying levels of risk.

Mentoring Managers

Dealing with performance, behavioural and grievance issues is challenging at the best of times and many managers throw their hands up in the air, unsure how to deal with unhappy staff members.

We offer mentoring for managers, giving them the tools to handle situations appropriately and efficiently while ensuring compliancy. We discuss things like appropriate documentation, what language to use and considering your organisational culture.

Terminations Process

Myths abound when it comes to terminating employees. The nature of the termination process makes this a stressful issue which most of us prefer to avoid but it doesn’t have to be this way.

We can explain in easy-to-understand language what your responsibilities as an employer are and we’ll help you navigate the world of termination. No two situations are the same, so rest assured, we’ll delve into your specific circumstances to give you advice that applies to you and your business.
