Task 5 After a full evaluation of the HR policies and practices within Flairwear the following findings were analysed and I have made the following recommendations and suggestions. I have obtained my findings through the mediums of, Interviews with both management and regular staff, Surveys and by comparing qualitative facts with competitors in the same market and other organisations in similar markets.
Findings * Staff turnover is at 25%, this is a rise of 15% on last year’s figures and is 14% higher than your average competitor. * Motivation amongst staff particularly lower level staff is very low * Morale is low probably due to the rate of staff turnover * Job satisfaction is low. * Most lower level employees leave during the first 3 months * Most employees that leave are under the age of twenty five. * Recruitment cost €350000 last year * Poor communication Suggestions
To try and keep staff with the company for longer loyalty bonuses should be introduced for example after 3 months of service a staff member could be rewarded with something like vouchers, days off, or even consumer electronics like digital cameras that could be bought in bulk to reduce the cost. To increase motivation commission could be introduced or set sales targets for individual stores and if targets are met all staff get rewarded this could also boost morale and could have a positive effect on job satisfaction.
Another way to approve on job satisfaction would be to have regular performance appraisals because if staff feel that what they do is recognised they will feel more important and therefore satisfied with their job.
