27 Performance and Retention Induction Probation Staff Performance Review Staff Development – Career Development/Succession Planning Total Reward Package

28 Induction – [risk and benefit] Unsatisfactory performance and low job satisfaction Absenteeism, high labour turnover and resignations or dismissals Tribunal cases if employees complain of unfair dismissal because of inadequate training High demands on managers Accidents leading to injuries and/or prosecution Mistakes which are costly to the company (ACAS, 2005)

29 Induction (continued) d/Pages/default.aspx d/Pages/default.aspx With the best will in the world, induction cannot be described as a glamorous, exciting facet of people management. In fact, it often degenerates into a hastily organised chore – a task that line managers can see as being merely a distraction from more important duties… (Rankin, 2006)

30 Probation “a testing of conduct or character of person, especially of candidate …… for employment.” (Concise Oxford Dictionary) Staff grades 1 to 5, up to a maximum of 06 months [reviewed at 4/12/20 weeks] Staff grades 6 to 9, up to a maximum of 12 months [reviewed at 8/26/42 weeks] Temporary or casual staff, grades 1 to 9, up to a maximum of 3 months [reviewed at 3/7/11 weeks]

31 Probation (continued) Satisfactory completion of a probationary period r/az/Pages/P.aspx r/az/Pages/P.aspx

32 Staff Performance Review “a cultural shift within HEIs towards an acceptance of performance management…..so that performance review becomes the norm, rather than the exception. This will involve tackling poor performance, but also managing good performance”. (KPMG, 2005) Staff Review and Development Scheme (2002) Staff Performance Review Scheme (2007)

33 Staff Performance Review The scheme aims to: Match individual and organisational needs Structured objective setting linked to corporate plans Review individual performance Identify personal development needs Identify any factors which may affect future objectives and priorities Allow staff to feedback on school/unit and UWIC strategies and plans
