 Planning is the key to a successful consultancy project Businesses and business support organisations are making increasing use of consultants. But how should purchasers ensure that they get a return on their investment? Michael Millward, Abeceder Managing Director, provides five key questions potential buyers of consultancy should consider when planning their purchase.
 A risk based approach to managing employee competence pays dividends The phrase “our people are our greatest asset” can only be the expression of a powerful business culture when business leaders act upon it. The difficulty facing companies is how to use limited resources to greatest effect including the priority and effort given to training and developing people and sustaining the skills acquired. In this article Abeceder associate Paul Richardson outlines an approach to competence and performance management which focuses on those employees whose actions or inactions generate the highest uncontrolled risk.
 Behavioural Interviewing: An introduction Having the right people, with the right, knowledge skills and behaviours in your organisation, is essential in achieving organisational success. This is particularly important in small and medium-sized enterprises, where the requirement to be effective rests with fewer members of staff. The most important decision any SME manager makes, writes Abeceder associate Sue Heward, is about who to recruit. In this article Sue explains the principles of behavioural interviewing and suggests that this technique can help make recruitment decisions easier.
 Performance Management v Appraisals- What's in a name? In the first of two articles Abeceder Associate Sue Heward looks at the changes taking place in performance planning, assessment and management. Is the emergence of the term Performance Management just a new way of describing the appraisal or is it a fundamentally new process?
 Reliable Safety Systems good for employees and good for profits Every employer regardless of size, location or industry has to be concerned with the safety and health of employees and the people who visit their premises, but whilst the business logic is straight- forward the process of implementation can be complex. Here Abeceder managing director Michael Millward gets a few hints about reliable safety systems from Abeceder partner company SafetyWorld.
 Talent Management: winning the war for talent Abeceder associate Jane Addy explores the meaning of talent management, and asks, if so many managers recognise the impact talented employees have on the bottom line, why aren’t more managers proactively managing talent
 Childcare Vouchers as a Salary Sacrifice Benefits Abeceder managing director Michael Millward explains how providing childcare vouchers as a salary sacrifice benefit works and how both employer and employees benefit.
