I've been in HR for about 2 years. I started in a Tier 1 advisory role and have recently secured a role within the same organisation as a Trainee Tier 2 Adviser - my role involves advising business leaders on implementing HR policy including Long term sickness, disciplinary, performance management/improvement etc. I'm struggling to set myself specific objectives to make sure I'm moving forward and to ensure I can advise managers on legally sound, business savvy advice. I've been told to listen to other advisers on the phones and read policies, documents and previous cases etc - I've been doing this for 2 months now and don't feel that I'm moving forward. Does anyone have any advice on how I can set myself specific SMART objectives to ensure I'm moving forward. I'm specifically finding it difficult to bring employment law 'to life' in order to ensure that the advice I'm providing is business focused whilst still being fair to employees.
