Hello and welcome to Episode 89 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today I am sharing with you 3 things you could, and should, be doing this side of Christmas to set your team up for success in 2022.
 
A couple of episodes ago, in Episode 87, we spoke about The Great Resignation, what it is, why we need to pay attention to it and the impact it will have on our workplaces in the next 12 months.
 
Doing these 3 things now, before your Christmas break, will undoubtedly reduce the potential fall out with your team of the great resignation, as well as ensure everyone returns from the Christmas break motivates, excited and ready to go for 2022.

The Great Resignation - What's all the Hype About?
24:56
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 87 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we are chatting about a phenomenon you may have heard about, but weren’t sure was actually real - The Great Resignation. Today we discussed what exactly it is, and what on earth all the hype is about.
 
Whilst it is something that we’re seeing play out largely overseas, specifically in the US right now, experts are predicting it will hit Aussie shores by March 2022, which they are already calling ‘March Madness’. To be fair, I’m already seeing signs of it starting to emerge in fewer and fewer applicants around, for jobs which would usually attract a high volume of top quality applicants.
 
There are things you can proactively do right now though to identify flight risks in your team, prevent them moving on, and mitigating the fall out when team members do inevitably leave though.

Is DIY HR Holding You Back?

Hello and welcome to Episode 84 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
In today's episode we are talking about when and why you may want to consider getting HR support for your business.
 
Whether external or internal there are a variety of options available, and for many businesses it’s the uncertainty of what and when that’s a challenge. In todays episode I share how this decision is different for every business, and provide some real life examples of businesses I’ve worked with who have gone against the ‘standard thinking’ on when they engaged HR help.
 
As business owners we often think we need to figure all the things out for ourselves, but just like you take your car to a mechanic, and see your accountant for tax advice, HR is one of those areas where going it alone is not always the best approach.
 
Also today I let you know that I am super excited that the doors to People Powered HR are currently open but only for a...

How this one thing helped Loren set up her team for success
37:32
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 82 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we’re joined by Loren Bartley, CEO of Impactiv8.
 
Loren shares her journey to FINALLY doing performance appraisals in her business, and how, after 12 years, finally getting on top of this has allowed her to stop avoiding, remove the fear, take control and most importantly set her team up for success.
 
 
What I most loved in what Loren shared today was the realisation that:
  • Performance Reviews aren’t just about pay rises;
  • The framework she has implemented has allowed her to hire good people, who might have been asking for high salaries, but to bring them on at a pay level she is comfortable with, and then increasing their salaries once they have proven themselves;
  • She has created KPI’s as part of the process, which absolutely will help to drive performance; and
  • As her business grows, the structure she has established now will allow for her to stay in the drivers...
