Businesses are like the people they employ – no two are alike, and each one has to be considered on its own terms. That’s why Jo Adams Consulting brings a genuinely fresh perspective to every situation rather than pre-conceived ideas. Our first task is to listen – we want to hear about your business, the people who work there, and the challenges you face. Once we understand the situation, we work in partnership with you to develop a range of custom designed solutions that meet business needs, respect individual roles and deliver outstanding results
The most important investment your business makes is in its people. Because your employees constitute your most costly asset, it makes sense to invest in their development so that they make the maximum contribution to your operation. A workforce with relevant, high-level skills, the right attitude, and an understanding of his or her role within the wider organisational picture, will work more effectively and help your business achieve sustainable success.
Every business goes through periods of change. These can amount to anything from minor adjustments to systems, to larger-scale departmental re-organisation, to total transformation of the organisation. The key to navigating change is to ensure that staff and management are clear about their roles, understand the reason for the changes, and approach the new circumstances with confidence and professionalism.
When the needs of your business change, employees and management are often expected to respond quickly and adapt to the new circumstances, whether or not they have had adequate warning or time to make adjustments. Unless the new situation is handled professionally, a change in direction can lead to poor decision-making by managers and confusion for employees – at just the time when flexibility, quick thinking and positive attitudes are most needed.
Keeping your HR policies up to speed with the growth and development of your business is the best way of ensuring a healthy working environment that is responsive to business needs and promotes positive attitudes and high performance at every level. We can help you conduct a thorough review of your current practice, and offer advice on necessary updates to ensure compliance with corporate and legal requirements.
