Having a human resources department can be a great help for a number of reasons here are a few.
5 Reasons Your Company Needs a Human Resources Department If you are the owner of a growing company, it is important that you are hiring people that will positively contribute to your company. There are many people that do not know what departments are necessary for their company to grow and thrive, and end up creating departments that are not effective and not creating departments that would be extremely helpful. A human resources department may be one of those departments. As your organization grows it is important that you assess your needs to be sure that you can hire a human resources department if it makes sense. By doing this early on, you may be able to avoid many problems that can come from not having a human resources department. Paperwork More than likely, as the owner of the company, you have dealt with a huge amount of paperwork since the beginning of your company. A great perk of having a human resources department is the ability to delegate the paperwork to this department. When you have a human resources department you can be sure that all of the necessary paperwork is being taken care of, without having to do it yourself. As your company grows, it may become impossible for one person to take on the paperwork. By having a department be in charge of the paperwork, you can be sure that one person's career is not too inundated with pushing paper. New Employees When you have a human resources department, you can ensure that all new employees are taught everything that they need to know within the first few hours of becoming an employee with your company. There are a lot of people that do not realize that the hiring and new employee training process should be very well documented. When a new hire comes into work the first day, you should be able to explain to him or her everything that you can about your company. The ins and outs of who is who and what is what. By teaching them everything that is pertinent to their job, you can ensure that he or she does not feel lost. You may also want your HR department to head your compliance training. The compliance training should be taken care of very early in an individual's career with your company. Benefits If you have any type of benefits package, you can give the responsibility to manage the benefits package to your HR department. Your HR department will be able to give the compensation that is required for the benefits packages. With all of the recent changes that have been made to health care, it can be difficult to keep everything straight when it comes to benefits. An HR department can ensure that everyone is introduced to the benefits that are available and also ensure that the enrollment periods are widely publicized. Do not be afraid to start an HR department within your company. This department can be an integral part of your growth and ensure that you are always sustainable as you are growing.
