People

Small businesses are often run by a close knit team of people. Employees often become friends, and often you are working with your family members. Lines of accountability and leadership can become blurred, and resistance to change manifests itself in a loss of productivity or inefficiencies.

You may have a shining star you don’t want to lose, but don’t have the time or resources to give them the personal development they crave to do a better job for you, and take on some of the responsibility that is keeping you pinned to the coal face of your business. Developing your team is an investment in the future of your business and brings results in increased loyalty and productivity.

Maternity, disciplinary, redundancy, tribunals, harassment, performance reviews, key personnel recruitment, conflict resolution, performance improvement – this is all part of the extra stuff you didn’t sign up for when you started out, and it is a legal minefield that can be costly if you get it wrong.
