A caterpillar that fails to transform becomes a “buttercrawl”
Managing Director , iQuartz
Our HR Consulting services helps you to transform your HR functions and modernise it from the traditional concept of handling mainly administrative matters to one that impacts business growth through people. In short, our HR consultants will help you transform your HR department to becoming a butterfly and not remain as a “buttercrawl”.
Through the years, you may realise that many HR structures that were previously working are now ineffective and the people drama is now causing you a headache. This could be a result of your company having scaled to the next level, changes in the business direction, or simply a shift in socio-economic and political factors. If so, then HR consulting can help!
Recruiting Bad Hires
The interviews are unstructured with no assessment of culture fit with the company. As a result, there is a high turnover rate because employees feel that they are not able to be their authentic self at work and do not feel a sense of belonging.
Feedback is infrequent and overly emphasised on past failures to meaningfully drive performance. As a result, the appraisal process becomes an administrative chore and there is a lot of productive time wasted given the lack of positive impact on employee’s performance.
The standard annual timing for reward is too infrequent to make a real impact on employee behaviour. Managers also reverse engineer ratings to give employees rewards that do not reflect performance. As a result, the rewards given out lose their intended purpose.
Many businesses continue to use practices that trigger threat responses like fear and defensiveness in their employees that restrict their ability to be creative and productive (Hills, “Future of HR: Is It Time We Went Fear-Free?”).
Traditional performance appraisal was known to be ineffective since 1965 during a landmark study by Smith et al at General Electrics. Yet, many companies are still keeping the old practice.
