When you are a business owner or manager HR management can seem daunting, however, it’s an essential part of running a successful business.
Nicola Clarke, Head of the Employment & HR department at Thorneycroft Solicitors, is an expert in these complex areas and she highlights that ensuring a business is able to manage its human resources effectively is not only important for staff retention, but it can also help your business become more efficient and ultimately more profitable.
If you are a business with no idea where to begin when it comes to HR and legal compliance, Thorneycroft Solicitors Employment & HR department have shared their top tips to help your business.
Here are 5 ways you can improve your HR management:
As a business owner or manager, your time is precious and keeping track of a host of paperwork is the last thing you want, or have time, to do. Using a self-service online platform, such as our HR Essentials service, provides a streamlined and cost-effective solution for those looking to manage any day to day HR matters that may otherwise prove challenging. At the touch of a button, you can rest assured that you are equipped to manage HR through our online system.
In order to improve the management of your human resources, you don’t have to incur the expense of employing an in-house HR Manager. Outsourcing to employment and HR specialists such as Thorneycroft Solicitors gives you access to all the relevant documents and advice you will need to ensure your business is compliant with the latest rules and laws without the overhead of a HR Manager’s salary. As well as their innovative HR Essentials service, Thorneycroft Solicitors also offer Employment Shield, a fully bespoke service that gives unlimited advice and support to business owners and managers taking the hassle out of HR management.
One of the most effective ways to improve HR management is to centralise the important documents and personnel files relating to your employees. An online hub is the easiest way to store your documents and it also provides you with an easy way to make any amends should staff members change job titles or you take on new staff, without getting swamped in paperwork.
Similarly to having the correct information stored for all staff in your business, creating a centralised database of key documents such as contracts and policies can streamline the HR management process.
If collating all the relevant documentation sounds like an HR nightmare, don’t worry, there are easy to use platforms such as HR Essentials that are readily available and designed to have a suite of documents stored on an online portal that is available 24 hours a day which you can access wherever you are.
An error that can prove costly to businesses is failing to keep employee data and documents up to date and ensuring that they are legally compliant.
By ensuring all policies, handbooks and employment contracts are current and compliant, both you and your employees know where you stand. Relevant information and documents can also help you protect your business should certain issues arise, such as a disgruntled employee looking to claim against the business.
