My job involves supervising part time employees. The longest they can stay is a year or two.
I already do far more with them than is the norm. I take their development very seriously. For example, they have training program, weekly meetings, regular performance reviews, and frequent feedback. Equivalent staff in other departments get a few hours of training and nothing else, period.
I'm eager to apply what I'm learning in MT. I'm not sure how to cope with the short-term nature of employment in particular. I can only promote them to leader, but that involves working extra hours and not everyone wants that. I can't offer more money to better performers. The best I can offer is an excellent reference.
To get everyone performing at a high level, I think I'd need more than a year or two with them. I can't ask for more the contracted weekly. Any suggestions for accelerating staff development without extra time? Or any different ways of looking at this challenge?
