What HR can do for your business.

After speaking with a number of people involved in small business, there appeared to be some common themes emerging.  One of the most common issues arising was, business felt they were spending an enormous amount of time on their people.  One business man told me that even when they had to recruit to grow their business they found it very difficult to find the time to ensure they recruited the right person for their company culture.  And because they had not recruited previously they found the whole process painful and time consuming.   He told me they didn’t want to use the recruitment agencies because of the cost. Another issue raised by owners of small to medium business was they found it difficult to manage their employees, be that through communicating company culture, managing sick leave, or overall  performance. When a business is confronted with these everyday issues they are unsure when to go to get the appropriate information.  There are many avenues you can go to get advice on these and other issues surrounding HR.

Interview tips.

One of the most interesting issues I hear from employees is that they employed a person who at the time didn’t actually fit the profile of the job they wanted, but because they were so busy, they made the decision and moved on.  This time poor decision making, actually causes problems down the line and can sometimes take an enormous amount of time to manage the mistake. This is a great article on what you can do when you begin screening candidates for the role. Have you overlooked general mistakes just to get the role filled? When I’m evaulating job applicants, I do look for spelling mistakes and errors in their resumes, I also think that if you are recruiting yourself, a phone interview is a very good way of getting an overall feel for a candidate and how they would match the job requirements and your company culture. The other suggestion I would make is before you actually advertise for a role, make sure that you have a clear understanding of what you want that role to undertake.  It has also been my experience that employers either advertise or brief a recruitment agency about the role they think they want – only to find out through the recruitment process that its different – this can be frustrating for all parties involved particularly the candidates. This article outlines how you can get tough in your decision making about candidates- to see the article please following the link http://bit.ly/Ymb1wq Tags Employee RelationsHR ConsultingHR consulting BrisbaneHr Services BrisbaneHR SystemsHR systems BrisbaneHuman Resources Consultant BrisbanePerformance...
