Fridays Food for Thought - Communicating with your teams

This week I have spent a lot of time with business owners who are either planning to bring staff back from furlough or are having to face the reality of making more permanent cuts as the furlough scheme starts to gradually reduce in the coming weeks.

What was really apparent is that how businesses have communicated with their staff throughout the whole pandemic massively varies and this has provided different challenges for each.

Where there has been a lack of information given to try and protect the workers, then the silence has perhaps created some resentment and a feeling employees have been forgotten. Where it is too much information then employees are fearful for their job security.

I know our Ask the Expert session on Tuesday at 8.30am is perfectly timed as we are talking about Communication with your teams and the challenges of getting people back to work amongst other things!

Come along if this resonates with you. https://lnkd.in/dyX98h8

You are all doing a fantastic job guys and I just want to let you all know we would be in a real panic had it not been for the support and advice you have given us so far. I really don't know if we would have been in business at the end of this. But with your exceptional effort I feel much more confident that we can ride this storm and come out the other end. The decision we made as a business to procure your services has paid massive dividends.

Thank you from all at Dragonfly.

As our personal Consultant, Sarah provides a quality, professional and complete service which is great value for money.

Sarah has transformed our HR and has introduced systems that have taken lots of hassle away from staffing issues within our company.

We have worked with Sarah and her team for 5 years and in this time our business has grown considerably. With telephone support available for all our Managers as they need it plus Sarah and her team proactively keeping us updated on changes in legislation we are reassured that we are in safe hands.

The HR software that Quest implemented also helps us keep on top of the routine aspects of HR such as holiday bookings, recording absence, holding personnel records which then allows Sarah and her team easy access to give us relevant advice.

Our Managers have also benefited from workshops run by Sarah to help develop their skills on handling issues such as disciplinary, appraisals, recruitment etc….

The support of Quest is invaluable and provides a much more cost effective solution than employing a HR Manager in house.
