A couple of simple tips ..
Communication - Remember - it's not just about talking, it's about really listening too. Your people will have insights into your business that you may not see or know about. Engage in effective two way conversations - talking and listening!
Honesty & Openness - Be as open and honest as you can with your people, don't make them feel like mushrooms - hidden in the dark and downtrodden.
Whether good or bad keep your people informed, they are much more likely to stick around and support you.

Induction & Integration
Help your new and new to role employees become embedded in their team, new role and the organisation as quickly and smoothly as possible.
By investing in those first few days and weeks you are giving your employee the best chance of success, it will help them to become effective and productive more quickly than without support.
Michael Armstrong sums it up simply...
"Performance management is the continuous process of improving performance by setting
individual and team goals which are aligned to the strategic goals of the organisation, planning performance to achieve the goals, reviewing and assessing progress, and developing the knowledge, skills and abilities of people.”
This often takes the form of a once a year review, which is time consuming and feels like a tick box exercise. In reality great performance management is ongoing, helping people see how the work that they do adds value to the organisation, which can be a great motivator.
Management & Leadership
Many people have been promoted into management and leadership roles because they are technically brilliant and it's the next logical step, after all, anyone can do it, can't they?!
By equipping your managers and leaders with skills and behaviours required to support them in their role, you are investing in their success, that of their teams and ultimately your business.
Great managers and leaders motivate, engage and boost morale, all of which play a considerable part in improving results and also retention.
