Employee Relations & Performance Management

Companies are experiencing unique opportunities and challenges when it comes to their employees, team management and staff development.

Today’s workplace is simply unlike those from years past. What employees need, want and expect from their employers is changing, and businesses everywhere are charged with navigating the challenges associated with assessing, cultivating and bolstering their employee dynamics.

Our team understands the growing need that companies have to equip and develop their team members in order to advance toward their goals.

Warren Averett’s human resources consultants can assist your company in maximizing your team’s potential through offering career development opportunities, strengthening employee relations, facilitating strategic planning sessions and honing your employees’ leadership skills.

Services Offered

Supervisors and managers have a critical impact on employee relations in any company. Many managers don’t have the experience, skills or information they need to succeed in this area. HR Consulting can assist in:

  • Improving employee relations issues
  • Improving morale and reducing turnover in the process
  • Providing training to managers/supervisors
  • Giving feedback
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Insuring fair and equal treatment

Like a roadmap or training plan, assessments will help you pinpoint strengths and developmental areas for you and your team. Assessments often improve hiring processes, strengthen leadership programs and improve team dynamics. We offer a full suite of assessment services coupled with coaching to help you select, grow and develop your employees. We work with your team to put together an assessment battery that works for you. We can administer assessments for you and create portals to help you administer them yourself. Whether you are seeking self-report assessments or 360 Feedback, Emotional Intelligence or Critical Thinking, we are able to help with tools, debrief, game plan and interventions.

We customize the team experience for your situation. As one example, we are licensed to use the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Program https://www.fivebehaviors.com/ which includes DiSC or Type. The combination of these programs makes for an engaging, interactive and actionable experience. Teams explore trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results.

Turnover is a multifaceted problem. Warren Averett Workplace can analyze your process (selection, role clarity, onboarding, training, leadership, exit interviews, etc.).

If your selection system needs to be fortified, we have a battery of position and level specific pre-hire assessments. The goal of these assessments is to help you hire stronger, so they stay longer.

We are equipped to provide validated, position or level specific assessments that will improve your selection process. We tap into a variety of tools and use a variety of resources – technology, face-to-face interviews and can create whole system selection processes with the help of our Industrial Psychologists.

Tip #1: The interview is not a great predictor of success on the job

Tip #2: The relationship with the boss is the number one reason for turnover.

We have a full selection of selection assessments ranging from assessments for entry-level employees to executives. As an example, we have a solution that measures an entry-level candidate’s potential to be safe, dependable and productive. We have a call center battery that measures, among other things productivity, quality, stress tolerance and service potential. One of our professional assessments measures accountability, adaptability, service orientation and other cognitive abilities and personality traits shown to contribute to success in professional roles. Our selection assessments come with questions to enhance your interview process.

Whether you are hiring a CEO or a line employee, Warren Averett can help you hire well. Contact us to learn more about what we can do to help you bring in top talent.
