Workplace stress – what should managers do?

Of all the management issues you will face in the workplace, a medical certificate signing an employee off with stress, anxiety, depression, or some other form of mental illness, is guaranteed to make your heart sink. A variety of questions spring to mind: how long will the person be away? Is the workplace somehow responsible for the problem? Could you have seen it coming and done something to prevent it? What are you going to say to the person when they do come back? What, if anything, should…See More

It’s not unusual…

Following the revelations of sexual harassment and assault - and allegations of rape - by Harvey Weinstein that filled the news media a few weeks ago, I recently heard Sir Tom Jones on the radio admitting that something similar was attempted against him early in his career.

I was surprised: Laura has always been a very solid and responsible woman, and has worked continuously since the children were in their teens. Perhaps she had taken early retirement? No, despite being 62 years of age, that wasn’t it. She’d left because she’d been bullied at work for about six months, and had…

Posted on February 3, 2016 at 12:30 0 Comments

The HR community has been buzzing recently, following the announcement that some very large, high profile organisations including Microsoft and Deloitte have abandoned their formal Appraisal Schemes, in favour of on-going performance discussions between managers and their team members. "How sensible!", many people have said. Appraisals are old hat. They are too bureaucratic. They are tick-box exercises that don’t motivate anybody or improve performance. Far…
