Expectations & Employees:
- If it is not written down in black and white, expectations do not exist and the employee cannot be held accountable for something that has not been completed.
- When expectations are written down, they should be agreed to by both the company and the employee with a signed and dated document. No signed and dated document – No agreement!
- Expectations must be specific. Generalizations will not be held as an expectation.
- Expectations must be measurable.
- Expectations for the employee after signed will need a mentor. This should be someone that can champion and guide the employee. This should be a person Not on the Human Resources group.
- The mentor will provide to the human resources a weekly or regular update as to the disposition of the employee.
- Review of the expectations on the date decided by the company and agreed upon by the employee should:
- Have the written and signed documents ready and available.
- Employee should have representation.
- This person would be taking notes
- Human Resources will provide the notes from the last meeting to the employee representative and the employee.
- If job changes for any reason, there must be a new job description and expectations written and presented to the employee by Human Resources. If this is not done the employee cannot be held accountable for any verbal discussion.
- Human Resources are there to protect the company and how they wish to complete the mission of the company within the guidelines of working together with the employee.
- When a company becomes a one sided, non-conversational, not prepared with written guidelines, job descriptions, notes signed by all parties, it shows a lack of diligence and trust from the company.
