    As you know, many workers have started to venture back into offices across the country. As the numbers grow, there are some important questions your clients should be asking with regards to the lifts in their buildings:- 

    1. How long have the lifts not been used? 
    2. Do they need servicing? 
    3. Could there be faults, or issues?
    4. Is this a perfect time to modernise existing lifts?

    Large corporations in the bigger cities are planning to welcome all their staff back fully in September. This could lead to a surge in lift servicing needs and also repairs,  as lifts left dormant or hardly used will be thrust back into full time use again. 

    Lifts in places such as churches, hospitality venues, will also have lifts laid dormant for a year and will need to be serviced and inspected. Hospital lifts may have had very little use where wards have been closed. 

    Plan your hiring needs now 

    Planning your recruitment for the coming months is easy.  Why not get ahead of your competitors so your business is ready to cope with the Autumn rush?

    After furlough and working from home for extended periods, many employees may be unmotivated
    to return to the office after such a difficult year. While we’re all in unchartered waters at the
    moment, motivation has always been key in boosting productivity, enhancing employee wellbeing
    and the smooth continuation of business and so motivating staff as they start to return is a top
    priority. As one of the best recruitment companies in Leicester, we’ve used our specialist knowledge
    to put together some tips on how to best achieve this.

    Be Flexible
    With the COVID-19 pandemic causing such unrest for such a long period of time in the UK, people
    have established new patterns of behaviours both personally and professionally. By balancing home
    and work life many have developed a more flexible working day and going straight back into the 9-5
    world may not be entirely suitable for everyone, especially those who may have isolating family
    members or children to consider. As an employee, it is important to be flexible and accommodate
    these struggling team members where possible.

    Brush Up
    Some employees may have had their formal training cut short or their qualifications suspended and
    maybe feeling a little behind. As soon as these can be continued, they should be, to get employees
    up to speed and make true on commitments to improve their CV. Additionally, it may be necessary to
    go over previous training and ensure everyone is familiar with what is expected of them.

    Be clear! As recruitment companies in Leicester know all too well, the communication paths
    between staff and managers have been disrupted by the pandemic and now with face-to-face
    interactions able to take place, it’s important to establish connections and ensure that staff feel that
    they can openly discuss things with you and each other.

    Another way to gadge how your staff are feeling is to carry out a staff engagement survey - if you're not to sure how to go about this - we would be only to happy to help you  - please call us on 0116 254 5411 for chat.

    Since the start of the pandemic, employee assessments have slipped across the board, with many companies being unable to monitor performance remotely. However, they are still an important part of the recruitment journey, no matter how long the individual has been employed with the company and with many now returning to work, it’s important to reflect and push forward with these performance reviews. We’ve put together some tips for effective employee assessments below.

    Tip 1 Reflect

    It might be hard to envision all of the active projects or roles a person has played during the pandemic, particularly if they have been working from home for a long period of time, so an employee assessment opens up the opportunity to reflect. Ask them what they feel they achieved in the last year, what their most significant project has been and how they have felt dealing with these unprecedented times. This can help you both to create a better understanding of where they currently stand.

    Tip 2 Do It Face to Face

    Carry out employee assessments face to face where possible, as this allows for clear communication between both parties and allows for more honest discussions. It is important to remember though, that interaction may have been very minimal for employees and so don’t put too much pressure on them right away, as they are likely more nervous than they would usually be.

    Tip 3 Be Honest

    Nobody likes to be the bearer of bad news, but if an employee is underperforming or needs to improve, it is important to get this across to them. Be sensitive in your words and lead with how they can do better, rather than how they may have been lacking. This approach will give them the resources they need to progress, without forcing them to dwell on any negativity.

    If you need any help with any of these our experienced consultants will be happy to have a chat about how to tackle any issues you maybe facing with your team and how we might be able to help. 

    Contact us today through the chat, email us at or call us on 0116 254 5411.
