A few months back we published a blog about how to conduct annual performance reviews for senior staff.
A couple of years ago the Australian Financial Review quoted Detective Superintendent Arthur Katsogiannis, then commander of the NSW Police fraud and cybercrime squad, in a story about corporate crime.
Superintendent Katsogiannis said that in 100% of corporate crime investigations he had been involved in, corruption goes hand-in-hand with a “compromised personal life”.
Gambling, drinking, drug taking, living beyond their means and inappropriate sexual conduct were all indicators of a personal life as compromised as the perpetrator’s professional life.
We all want competent, confident staff who feel fulfilled and motivated by their work – as we've discussed in previous blogs, it's a win-win that provides benefits for both the employer and employee.
Training and professional development is key to staff developing that competence and confidence, so this week we're inviting you to download our free JPAbusiness Staff Training Plan and Professional Development Plan templates.
Below are some example plans we have filled out to give you an idea of how the templates can be used in your business (just click on the images to view the full-sized documents).
Today’s employees operate in an increasingly complex environment in which technological change and connectedness have brought family and personal priorities into the workplace, and work into the home environment.
Advances in mobile devices provide access to data, emails, texts, reports, notifications, payments and receipts in the field, and at home. No matter the location, information is instantaneous.
Unfortunately, these technological advances have created an expectation that people will be available 24/7, creating a work and life imbalance.
