The phrase ‘people can make or break a business’ is an underutilised reference. People are your most important asset, selling, delivering and supporting your business. With the right people in the right roles at the right cost your business can flourish, but the reverse is equally true.
Getting your people issues right can be hard, especially in SME’s where senior management find it difficult to remain detached from the workforce and therefore find it hard to take often tough people related decisions. This is particularly true with long serving employees. Productivity may have fallen off or role value may have diminished while the cost of the individual has risen over the years to a level that may now be hard to justify.
