People Management

How can we help?

Your people are the life blood of your law firm. Having the right person in the right job with the right motivation and attitude is one of the biggest determining factors to your success. Managing people and performance well can have a huge impact on your business but managing these factors badly will have an even bigger impact.

Our performance specialists will work with your law firm to make sure that you, not only have the right people on board, but that you also have the processes in place to get the best from them.

We recognise that managing your people and their performance is something that can drain a lot of your time and energy and so we take the time to understand the needs of your firm and then provide solutions that will help you to do this.

We can assist in the following ways:-

  • Review of your firm's HR processes and procedures (including manuals and contracts)
  • Support & guidance with specific issues
  • Learning & development needs analysis
  • Team development
  • Design and implementation of bespoke performance and development review process (appraisals)
  • Leadership and management development
  • Enhancement of responsibility, accountability and performance
  • Workplace mediation
  • Employee engagement
  • Disciplinaries and grievances
  • Restructuring and redundancy
  • Recognition and reward
  • Recruitment process

Depending on what works for you we can agree a monthly retainer or quote for a one off project.

Example Projects

Introduction of a Performance & Development Review (Appraisal) Process

We work with you to understand your firm and what you would like to achieve from having this kind of process.  We then undertake some research across the spectrum of your team to establish what they think would be beneficial and effective.  Taking this into consideration we use current best practice to develop a bespoke process for you and roll this out with your team to ensure success. When implemented properly employees repeatedly report that they find this kind of review motivational and inspirational. 

Introduction of Job Purpose & Responsibilities

First of all we will look at the purpose of every role in your firm and then work with your managers to ensure that everyone is clear about the purpose of their job role and the contribution to the firm that job role is responsible for.  The output is that every member of your team has a Job Description that truly reflects what they are paid to achieve.  This ties in closely with Performance and Development Reviews and both are fundamental in ensuring that employee performance is managed effectively.
