As a manager or director, you know how to get your team to get the job done. But in the last couple of years, it hasn't been easy. Hybrid work models and Zoom fatigue make it difficult to lead a team. We're talking about how "playing Jenga during an earthquake" is pretty hard.
Quite often, you fall into the trap of focusing too much on tasks rather than building a team. We'll get it. You have deadlines to meet and clients to reach. Performance can take precedence over people. But in order to perform well, people ultimately need a blueprint for how their unique personality type can best function. Because when you think about it, the people on your team need individual support if they want to stay productive and involved in the group environment.
Things get even more complicated when your team is scattered across multiple locations and time zones. Add to this different levels of experience or personality types, and trying to provide individualized support to team members can be challenging.
Strong teams start with strong people
People who are aware of their strengths are more engaged and perform better. In turn, a higher level of involvement means:
17% more performance
41% less absenteeism
21% higher profitability
24% lower employee turnover (in organizations with high employee turnover)
So how do you offer one-to-one support and build a engaged, productive team when there are thousands of things on your to-do list? You are calling the professionals.
By the end of the experience, this is what the team will achieve:
Improved team communication
Reinforced corporate culture based on strengths and values
Improved tools and ideas for individual or team development
A more dynamic way for leaders to lead by example and discuss differences
A new intuitive framework to help employees stay motivated, manage stress and make decisions.

Conducting personnel assessment in Moscow and Russia
Each leader is interested in the effective work of the company and each employee individually. To make the right management decisions, the manager needs to understand the capabilities and potential of his employees. When personnel assessment is carried out comprehensively, it brings the greatest result for the company.
Personnel assessment is applied:
- 1. Recruitment - assessment is needed to select the most competent employees
2. Training of staff - an assessment is needed to identify the need for training and specific areas of training
3. Talent pool - an assessment is necessary to understand the suitability of employees for a future position
4. KPI - determination of indicators by which personnel will be assessed
5. Personnel development - an assessment is necessary to identify employee growth areas
6. Personnel planning - in this case, the assessment determines the company's need for staff
7. Assessment of staff loyalty and satisfaction - reveals the climate in the team
Most often, personnel assessment is carried out in two areas: competency assessment and performance assessment.
Personnel assessment is a time-consuming process and requires special training. The assessor needs to be proficient in assessment tools, to understand in which cases various tools will show greater validity.

Order a staff assessment
Whether you're new to the HR position or have been with the company for a long time, assessing the HR function can be a valuable way to determine if an organization's HR needs are being met. A formal assessment can be done by an in-company HR department, but you are likely to get more objective results if an external organization does the assessment for you.
Typically, the assessment will include interviews with each person responsible for HR duties, a review of internal policies and procedures, an audit of employee files, and a review of relevant documents such as an employee handbook or performance management forms.
A formal evaluation should determine where the HR department is doing well and where it can be improved. These areas, summarized below, are commonly considered:
1. Compliance and administration
This concerns whether the organization complies with legal obligations in areas such as file storage, sick leave, employee classification, anti-harassment/discrimination, and other legally relevant aspects. The administration function includes documenting policies and procedures, organization charts, and other organizational data.
2. Compensation and benefits
An overview of how compensation is determined, what benefits are offered and to whom (part-time or full-time), whether there has been a recent pay review, and everything else related to overall compensation for each employee.
3. Training and development
What kind of training is offered to all employees within the company? New employees? Managers? Is participation in external training programs encouraged/permitted? Is there a budget for education? Are there hard or soft skill gaps that need to be addressed?
4. Talent Acquisition
Examines the process of new employees joining the organization - how jobs are advertised inside and outside the organization, who participates in the interview process, how offers are made, and candidate tracking systems.
5. Performance Management
This area takes into account how the performance of employees is assessed and how opportunities for improvement are communicated to employees.
This includes an overview of what organizational analytics are currently available and what you might need to start tracking, such as: hiring times, employee turnover, top performer identification, employee engagement, etc.
The staff appraisal should include information about what each member of the HR department is responsible for, whether the department is understaffed or overstaffed, and include recommendations for changes or reorganization of positions.
8. Employee relations
This area should include an analysis of how internal communications are handled - whether there is an intranet, how often and in what form meetings are held, whether an employee engagement survey has been conducted, opportunities for employee recognition, and how the mission, vision, and values of the organization impress employees.
9. Set Priorities
The assessment should include issues that need to be addressed first (usually any compliance issues) and a target timeframe for completing actions on the identified priorities.
10. External assistance
If the outside firm has completed your assessment, ask them to tell you how they can help with any actions they find or refer them to other organizations that can help. If you've passed your internal performance appraisal but don't have enough staff to handle future tasks, take the time to research firms in your area that can help you.
