Tandehill Can Help If...
Supervisors are not comfortable giving feedback to employees and therefore many performance problems are not effectively addressed.
Your human resources department is not comfortable with some elements of compensation (i.e., evaluating jobs, developing base pay structures, creating incentive plans, etc.) and would benefit from in-house training to bring them up to speed.
The Board of Directors is not well-versed in the area of compensation and feels uncomfortable making pay recommendations in the current environment.
Few employees participate in process improvement initiatives because they do not have the practical discipline required to facilitate and solve problems.
The organization uses several ways to communicate to employees, but the messages still don't seem to be heard.
Your process improvement team meetings are unproductive. You want the group to come together as a team and to have the skills to conduct effective meetings.
A recent study by WorldatWork/Hay/Loyola University found that 78% of the companies that thought their pay communications were very effective also felt their pay plans were motivational. Unfortunately, 68% of employees felt pay communications were ineffective.
