Are poor performing employees holding your business back?

How to get the wrong people off the bus

"The executives who ignited the transformations from good to great did not first figure out where to drive the bus and then get people to take it there. No, they first got the right people on the bus (and the wrong people off the bus) and then figured out where to drive it… If you have the wrong people, it doesn’t matter whether you discover the right direction; you still won’t have a great company. Great vision without great people is irrelevant
– Jim Collins, Good to Great.

That’s all very well, but in New Zealand, employment legislation is so stacked in favour of the employee that you can’t get the wrong people off the bus without paying lots of money in compensation, right?

Introducing: Employed But Not Engaged - How to break up with your employees and hold on to the ring

Employed but not Engaged
Employed But Not Engaged is a new book by Michael Smyth which guides business owners through the treacherous minefield of New Zealand employment law. It leads the business owner through the recruitment process, to managing employees, right up to the dismissal process and beyond to fighting a personal grievance in the Employment Relations Authority. Nothing is missed out and everything is explained in plain English using the analogy of a relationship between a boyfriend / girlfriend, husband / wife or life partner (something we can all relate to).

Sir Bob Jones describes the book as:
" easy to read book which on face value should be every employer’s bible..."
