New Year's Resolutions for Your HR Department

2018 is almost here! While many people are probably thinking about setting New Year's resolutions for themselves to lose weight, this is the perfect opportunity for your HR department to set New Year's resolutions to improve your company. Your HR department or HR manager plays an important role. Our HR consulting firm is here to give you a few sample New Year's resolutions your HR department or manager can set for 2018.

New Year's Resolutions for Your HR Department

New Year's Resolution # 1

Thank your employees more.

Gratitude can go a long way with your employees. Make it a point to thank your employees for their hard work more in 2018. When an employee feels appreciated, they are more likely to work harder for you.

New Year's Resolution # 2

Create a more flexible work schedule for your company.

More and more people are looking to work at companies that provide more flexible work schedules. Everyone has lives outside of work and your employees would probably appreciate the flexibility. For example, you could give them the option to possibly compress their hours and maybe work 4 10 hour days instead of 5 8 hour days or (if feasible) work from home.

New Year's Resolution # 3

Review and update HR policies.

Odds are it's been a while since you have looked at your HR policies. Take this opportunity to make any improvements or updates to your policies you can. It is very important that your employees clearly understand what these policies mean and how they affect your company.

New Year's Resolution # 4

Develop ways to improve your company.

There is always room for improvement. Think of ways your company could improve, whether it be employee morale or better budgeting. If it's employee morale then you could try scheduling more team bonding activities or employee lunches. Do whatever you can to try and make for a more positive work environment.

New Year's Resolution # 5

Improve the way you interview potential new hires.

Have you noticed many new hires leaving your company within just a few short months in 2017. Develop an interview process that allows you to screen your potential employees better. Make sure that their personal goals and ambitions align with the company's goals. Also, make sure you are clearly explaining all that is entailed with this job in the interview. Sometimes, applicants don't always understand what's really involved with the job just by reading the job description, so be honest about what the job really is. An informed employee who is truly passionate about what they do is more likely to stick with your company longer than an employee who didn't clearly understand what was involved with the job.
