How far can your business fly and how far has it gone?

When looking at your business over its lifetime, businesses go through many challenges on the way.

A panel of business entrepreneurs and leaders will share their life story and the lessons they have learnt.  The panel will invite questions before, after and during the event. So if you have any questions or business issues that you have faced that you would like the panel to address, please send it to us now! (l.heyworth@sydneymitchell.co.uk)

Background to the event
Solihull a vibrant place to do business – the Solihull Professionals group was developed to bring together professionals in the area to get our voice heard further afield showing the opportunities in the region for companies to start-up, grow and develop and we have all in the region to help them no matter what stage of business life a person or company is at.

Every business has a natural lifecycle; from the first flicker of an idea, through to the excitement of watching a business grow and onto reaping
the benefits of all the hard work. This is an opportunity for attendees to
stand back and look at business from a different perspective.

There will be interactive panellist sessions focussing on each of the
three main stages of the lifecycle. Attendees will hear and learn the valuable lessons encountered from business leaders; who have lived and breathed their businesses and would like to pass on their experiences and resolutions.

Why should you attend this event
This event will be of interest to all businesses at whatever stage in its life cycle.  Whether you are looking to grow, expand, diversify or plan for retirement and exit then this event may just give you a few pointers.

What will you get out of it?
Attendees will benefit from the experiences of others, learn about the pitfalls and how to avoid them, discuss concerns and have questions answered. They will come away with fresh ideas, solutions and new contacts that can support them through their decision making.

Our panel and experts will be on hand at the end of the event if you have any additional questions that you may not wish to raise in open forum.

Believe it or not Performance Management is not a 30 minute appraisal once each year reports Jade Linton Associate Solicitor at Sydney Mitchell LLP. 

When used correctly Performance Management is an effective HR tool helping employees to do a job well and achieve the goal they were employed to do, help you run a thriving a profitable business.

A common mistake made by businesses is to ignore underlying issues which, if left unresolved, can turn in to huge litigious problems making matters difficult for the employee, difficult for staff and difficult for business. 

Jade Linton Employment Law Associate Sydney Mitchell LLP 0121 746 3300A forward thinking business will ensure its line managers are equipped and empowered to manage staff effectively and fairly.  People are often promoted to management because they have the technical skill required for business but technical prowess alone does not make a person capable of managing people.  

Capability is aimed at improvement not punishment and businesses should not use performance management as a tool to engineer problematic staff out of the business under the guise of poor performance.  Various cases reveal dismissing an employee for poor performance when performance was not the real reason for dismissal is likely to render the dismissal unfair. 

An effective performance management culture (and not just a policy on page 259 of the Handbook) should ensure the right people occupy the right roles and employees facing genuine difficulties are supported.  After all, a happy workforce is the driving force behind any profitable business and employers should be more concerned about ‘presenteeism’ than they are 'absenteeism'.

Jade added:

Get it right at the outset and save yourself the cost, distress and embarrassment of an expensive Tribunal claim.  Plan, discuss and work together with your key employees to make a day in the office a positive and profitable experience.

My HR Forums have helped many businesses share their views in a confidential and friendly arena aimed at identifying how practices can be improved to the benefit of all concerned. Find help before you need help!
