The HRM audit is a comprehensive review that can be done in approximately one week and results in a report, stating recommendations for the courses of action to be taken. Genius Consultancy can also assist you in the required follow-up.

Performance Management is generally considered as a part of a Managing by Objectives system. Within an MBO-framework the process of Performance Management relates to the management of individuals. It starts with the assignment of individual objectives all the way through to the final and formal appraisal procedure.

For nearly all organisations employees are the most expensive resource. Managing their performance ensures that the human resources are effectively contributing to the success of the company. This is a serious reason to consider the development of a Performance Management system, as it can:

  • Improve management control over work and results, and increase the ability to anticipate problems early.
  • Facilitate the information flow in the organisation and ensure understanding of expectations about results, facilitating all employees to tie their individual performance goals to the organisational objectives.
  • Create a sense of contribution to motivate employees by allowing them input into, and ownership of, their objectives and standards of performance.
  • Generate a structured, recurrent performance review system to provide objective criteria that management can use to make decisions regarding pay scale, and promotion.

There are many reasons to choose for Performance Management. Being able to respond to your market position is evident: competition and consumer’s needs. This is a serious motive in times where (small) differences in quality turn into the critical edge for success.

Genius Consultancy can assist you in your organisational change. In the process of restructuring the organisation or retraining employees, our expert attention will help you develop the quality and output of your workforce. Steps that we will go through are:

  • Work planning and goal setting
  • Monitoring performance
  • Periodical rating of performance
  • Function grading
  • Development of performance capacity
  • Remuneration for performance

Development Competence Management

Developing Competency Management is the next step in your Performance Management system. Competency Management will unlock the potential of your workforce and will renew your company! Once you are working with competencies you will experience the ultimate control over performance results and staff development.

Competencies are the origin and reservoir of human behaviour. Every employee has a unique mixture of competencies that enable her or him to perform at certain levels of proficiency. To identify the competencies that are needed to perform in a given job is a difficult and time-consuming effort. Several approaches are possible to build and introduce competencies, depending on type of your organisation, your strategies and your HR objectives. Once you have clarified your strategic directions you’re ready to build a competency-based system that will strengthen and support your company into the future.

Genius Consultancy is specialised in all features of competency management and understands the issues that can assist your organisation to further develop and motivate your workforce. After an initial consultation, our consultants undertake a situational analysis to determine the most effective development strategy. We will then guide your organisation through the process of implementation ensuring positive results for all. You can expect enhanced corporate effectiveness and an empowered workforce.

Design and Planning of HRD

Training and development of employees is an issue that has to be faced by every organisation. The amount and quality of training carried out, varies enormously from one organisation to another. Many organisations meet their needs for training in an ad hoc and haphazard way. Training in these organisations is more or less unplanned and unsystematic. Other organisations set about identifying their training needs, then design training activities in a rational manner, and finally assess the results of training. Such organisations are engaging in a systematic approach to the training and development of their employees.

The advantages to organisations adopting a systematic approach on training are clear. Generally, the benefits of a well-trained workforce are that the organisation will turn out high standard goods or services, in a more cost effective manner than others. Therefore they have a better chance of achieving organisational goals, whether they are profit oriented or service oriented.

Genius Consultancy can assist you in setting up a training needs survey and designing your HR development plan. This will include a training policy statement that set out what the organisation will provide in developing its employees.

Salary Survey

On appointment our consultant will analyze your objectives and specify the costs for Genius Consultancy to develop and carry out your salary survey.

We offer a range of career assessments to determine the best career options, with counselling tailored to suit your company’s budget.
