New Year’s Resolutions for HR Professionals

The most common are eating healthy, joining a new gym and spending more time with family and friends, but…what about HR?

As HR professionals, there are many aspects we need to take care of because Human Resources is getting more and more important every day in small and large companies.

  1. Motivate your employees

Create a Motivation Strategy to keep your employees motivated during the New Year. Design an Engagement survey and evaluate the results.

  1. Review your interview process

By utilizing structured behavioural interviews and training hiring managers to conduct effective interviews, the interview process can be greatly improved and enhanced.

  1. Review your employee documentation

You must have a file for each employee. Some of the documents you should have are:

✓ Resumes and employment applications

✓ Contracts or Offer Letters

✓ Payroll information

✓ Basic employment data

✓ Termination documentation

✓ Right to work in the UK checked

✓ Emergency contact details

✓ Criminal records (DBS) checked

✓ Medical information

  1. Review induction plans

As you may know it is essential to have a good induction plan for the new employees in your company. Review the ones that you already have or create new ones in case you have never written them. It will help your new employees to feel organised and hit the road running from day one.

  1. Digitalization of the workplace
