Managing HR – a need for planning

first_imgManaging HR – a need for planningOn 30 Oct 2001 in Personnel Today Obviously the nature of the local or specialist labourmarket plays a part in variations around these figures – but only to a limiteddegree. The key point is that the best HR departments know what theirexpectations are related to HR activities and costs, and whether in servicelevel agreements, or just from a departmental budgeting and planningperspective – they know how much time (and salary cost) should be devoted toeach of the 40 or so key HR activities during the next budget year. Take as an example recruitment cost. There are some fairlytight limits relating to the internal HR cost inputs to recruitment – centredaround £1,500 per new management employee and £800 per clerical recruit. The start point for judging effectiveness must involveidentifying some basic benchmarks. This does not simply mean looking at numbers of people in HRor ratios of personnel people to other employees. Some key indicator valuesappear to be common across a large number of industries. Comments are closed. This is a figure that has been (within very limited margins)an exceptionally stable measure accepted by several hundred employers in theAPAC benchmarking database over the last decade. By Derek Burns, Partner, MCG Consulting Group They also have a clear perception of what”acceptable” levels of turnover and absenteeism are and a goodunderstanding of the costs incurred in replacing lost employees or covering forabsenteeism.center_img Related posts:No related photos. With business now at risk from recession, there is apressing need for the HR function to add value and prove its effectiveness. Ifstrategic planning has not been a strong point in the past, then now is a goodtime to establish a framework. When this exceeds 2 per cent, all employers should startquestioning what the extra cost is adding to the output of the organisation. For example, a critical and extremely stable indicator isthe HR reward cost as a percentage of the organisation paybill. Previous Article Next Article How much is (and should in the forthcoming year be)allocated to recruitment, training and development and other key activities?Unquestionably the 80 or so top performing organisations that we work with in ayear do not leave the resourcing of these activities to chance. Of the 300-plusbenchmarked organisations these winning players devote significantly less thanthe 30 per cent norm to non-productive support issues such as clerical,administration, secretarial and “department management” activities.While the precise balance of other activities must be related to corporateneeds, there are absolute parameters within which top performers operatedepending on their circumstances. Then, employee numbers aside, HR strategists should turn tohow the HR cost associated with this 2 per cent figure (typically £300 to £500per employee) can be justified.last_img read more

Standard Hotel to erect sidewalk shed on High Line after debris falls

first_imgThe Standard hotel at the High Line (Getty)A shadow has fallen over a portion of the High Line after a chunk of paneling on an adjacent hotel came off the building.The Standard Hotel, which straddles the southern end of the elevated park, will erect a 450-foot stretch of scaffolding over the High Line to safeguard pedestrians from falling debris, the New York Post reported.On January 2, an 8-foot portion of cement-and-fiberglass paneling tumbled off of the hotel, according to the publication. Four days after the incident, a 311 call from an onlooker summoned the city’s Department of Buildings to the site, where the agency found a gap in the hotel’s siding. The DOB issued a $2,500 violation on Feb. 10 and ordered The Standard to hire engineers to carry out a stability assessment of the facade, which it has complied with.ADVERTISEMENTRead moreFaçade rules widely ignored across cityDOB ramps up façade enforcement following architect’s deathDOB map shows 280 miles of scaffolding in the city Tags andre balazsHigh LineHotelsthe standard hotel The Standard was developed by hotelier André Balazs and designed by Ennead Architects, and opened in 2009.

Government to introduce mandatory three year tenancy contracts

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Government to introduce mandatory three year tenancy contracts previous nextHousing MarketGovernment to introduce mandatory three year tenancy contractsSources tell BBC that government believes minimum mandatory period would give both tenants and landlords more security.Nigel Lewis2nd July 201801,652 Views The government is planning to bring in a compulsory three year tenancy period, it has been revealed, months before its own consultation on the proposal is finished.Over the weekend government sources told the BBC that it believed the proposed measure would give landlords greater financial security and help tenants put down more solid roots.The proposed policy is a direct steal from Labour’s 2015 manifesto, which pledged to back three-year tenancies.But unlike Labour’s, this one would see tenants able to terminate their contract before the three years was up, but that landlords would not be able to.three year tenanciesThe government’s belief that tenants want and need more security is contradicted by research last year by the Deposit Protection Service which found that 80% of the 40,000 tenants it canvassed preferred the current arrangements.The proposal, which is to follow an ongoing consultation with the industry and tenant representatives, has been met with fury by the National Landlords Association (NLA), whose CEO yesterday said “I feel we’ve been misled”.This refers to comments last year by previous housing secretary Sajid Javid, who had promised a more consultative approach.“This is supposed to be about meeting the needs of the consumer,” said NLA CEO Richard Lambert (pictured left).“[Our] research with tenants consistently finds that 40% of tenants want longer tenancies, but 40% do not. More than 50% consistently say that they are happy with the tenancy length they were offered, and 20% tell us that when they asked for a longer tenancy, they got it.”But the Build-to-Rent sector, which in the past has tried to distance itself from the private landlord sector by promoting more tenant-friendly renting, has welcomed the proposal.Johnny Caddick (pictured, right), Managing Director of BTR developer Moda, says: “It makes sense that residents are given security of tenure. So we fully support these moves provided people have flexibility if they only wish to stay for a year or two.” NLA longer tenancies Johnny Criddick Richard Lambert Moda National Landlord Association BBC Sajid Javid three year tenancy contracts July 2, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
