There are many issues involved with managing employee obligations and performance at work. Issues can arise when employers seek to discipline their employees for misconduct or poor performance. It is essential that employers have the ability to successfully manage their workforce. Conversely, an employee should be able to expect fair work conditions and reasonable treatment. Usually, there are clear employment conditions which are negotiated before accepting employment with the goal that expectations are understood. However, the problem is no agreement can cover everything and various obligations can be implied or assumed or in fact not exist at all despite them being agreed to. In addition, to ensure that performance management fits in with legal requirements, the process can become very prescriptive and termination of employment can lead to issues of unfair dismissal.
Rethinko assists with all aspects of performance management including reviewing employment procedures, identifying employee rights and how to effectively discipline employees for misconduct. We can also provide support with setting up employee reward systems to improve productivity, motivation, morale, job satisfaction and foster a positive work culture.
