Supporting your ambitions
Nicola has recently advised a number of HEIs and charities on performance issues with senior/academic staff. The clients key objectives were to reach an early resolution if possible. Nicola's approach involved an early assessment of risks and the design of a strategy which took account of the various outcomes. In all cases an agreed termination was achieved swiftly at an appropriate level of compensation.
With the increasing commercialisation of HEIs and charities a key factor is to ensure that the organisation's approach to risk is consistent. Nicola has assisted with this by training clients on our approach to bold HR.
