What are your business resolutions or goals for 2022? Are they starting out looking dim and unattainable? Are they HR-related, or would HR implementation or change help you make those resolutions to help you reach your business goals? Don’t be discouraged!
First, Take a Good, Hard Look at Your Resolutions
What are your goals for your business this year? Are you planning on adding new employees? Working to retain a strong sales team? Develop a succession plan? Offer better benefits? Having HR systems in place can help with this and free time up for your internal staff to have more time to focus on your company’s specific objectives.
What HR-Related Steps Can You Take to Meet Your Resolutions This Year?
1. Payroll Administration
Outsourcing this task helps free up your accounting, administration, and/or operations department. Having professionals on your side who specialize in payroll will make sure your taxes are correct, filings are done in a timely fashion, and your benefits are calculated correctly. This way, any new changes in payroll are done automatically, so you’ll always have the right information applied.
2. Employee Recruitment
Attracting and retaining the right candidates for your company can be challenging. The key to success in this area is a combination of a focus, hands-on approach, and the right integrated application software. If you have these two areas covered, you will be on your way to selecting scheduling interviews from a pool of highly qualified candidates. And if you have the right software set in place, once they are hired, this will make onboarding process is easier than ever.
3. Succession Planning
What happens to the business if you retire, expire, or become disabled to the point where you can no longer effectively run your business? How will that look? Is the business equipped and positioned to carry on if this occurs? In the new year, it will be a smart idea to develop a succession plan that immediately falls into place when unexpected changes occur. While the thought of having to create a plan of this nature may sound uncomfortable, putting things in place is smart. And an even smarter call would be having a team of HR professionals on your side who can walk you through the process, asking the hard questions that matter.
4. Employee Training and Development
Employee training is crucial to the success of your business. Therefore, businesses should make it a goal to have training modules set in place for new hires, including information about the company they need to know, information about their department, objectives, and all the initial training they need for their role.
Additionally, by prioritizing employees’ professional development following their onboarding and training, you are instilling a growth mindset and confidence within them. This can actively benefit your company’s retention rate as employees are often more apt to stay with a company long-term that invests in them in this way.
