Role profiling & Job crafting
Whether top-down or bottom-up, creating structure, alignment and meaning for your people is a critical launchpad from which many exciting projects can take-off. The HR Agency has a wealth of experience of shaping roles and responsibilities in numerous organisations, from large employers to small businesses.
Depending on the culture of your organisation, there is a solution right for you. A more tradiitional approach to defining structured responsibilities comes from creating role profiles as an output of job design. This relies on more of a top-down approach to define individual roles. Whilst it does involve input from individual role-holders, it is more reliant on contributions from line managers and senior leaders. This is an ideal solution for a more traditional hieracrhied organisation.
Job crafting enables your people to take a lead in defining their roles and gives them the tools and permission to tweak their jobs as they see fit. Always ensuring any changes they make align to the overall mission and values of your organisation, this solution may be ideal for a smaller employer looking to maximise accountability and engagement from their flatter structure.
Performance evaluation frameworks
Having defined roles and responsibilities in your team, having the right performance evaluation framework in place is fundamental to keeping your business moving in the right direction.
The HR Agency has worked with multiple employers to implement performance evaluation frameworks that make a real difference to organisational efficiency and engagement between managers and their teams, as well as the wider organisation.
Removing the annual performance management cycle is crucial in today’s world. A time-consuming and often feared process, it has thankfully been consigned to the history of business books. At The HR Agency, we work with you to identify the right solution, but it will always be one that moves toward the value of conversation and away from burdensome documentation. Agility is key and this can be achieved by putting in place the river banks within which the performance conversations flow.
This approach allows for in-the-moment feedback on performance which has been proven to have a much higher impact than trying to recall the last 6 months work in a bi-annual meeting. Another key difference is moving toward future-focused goals and away from assessing past performance. Whilst an element of this remains - the value is in the journey ahead and that’s where your performance evaluation framework will focus.
A Hackathon is a great way to engage your people and generate innovaitve, creative solutions for your organisation. Usually staged over a full day, The HR Agency combines inspiring methods to create energy and enthusiasm among participants. Using interventions such as world cafes and Disney creativity to open up the possibilities while refining and testing ideas to arrive at a list of potential solutions for your organisation. Identifying low-hanging fruit to big-ticket items you will have a wealth of possible solutions to begin implementing immediately following your Hackathon.
