All the below are for large accounts and accounts managed on site.

Performance can be managed in three ways.

  1. Time and attendance can be monitored by completion of a Return to work form which are completed after a member of staff has been absent these will be carried out by a member of the A Star Management team
  2. Disciplinary issues are dealt with through counselling interviews which are conducted based on the nature of the issue.
  3. The A Star Management team will monitor the shifts performance every two hours and decide appropriate action for under achievers whilst liaising with Management.

When an issue arises regarding shift performance we will place the picker on a performance management programme which involves an interview and daily review of performance for a period of ten shifts.

A Star can produce weekly stats on performance, retention, attendance and sickness on a whole and individual basis. Any of the above can be changed to suit the customers requirements and can be provided in any format required (Appendix 8).
