So the first step on your New Year HR Plan should be to ensure that all the legal requirements relating to having employees are covered.
It’s so important not just from a legal perspective but also from an Employee Engagement perspective to have a strong and reliable system for ensuring all legal requirements are complied with when an employee joins your organisation.
Aside from the hefty fines and other potential legal risks it doesn’t reflect well on an organisation if an employee has to ask for an Employment Contract or Role Profile. Put together a New Starter Pack and make sure each new employee receives it on their first day.
Establish an Employee Handbook and keep it up to date and relevant. Make sure that its a living breathing guide to your organisation and doesn’t end up on a shelf gathering dust. It should be a Guide to your business that will help your New Starters hit the ground running.
