Why Support From Your HR Department is Important

Human resource departments are often associated with hiring and firing employees, but their roles are much more in-depth and complex. Not only do they assist with hiring and transitioning new employees, but also with legal compliance and training, employee communications and development. To put it simply, your HR department helps you see more value in your employees.

If you’re still uncertain as to why human resources management is vital to your business, here are a few things to know:

Recruitment Process

Human resource departments take care of the recruitment process. They are effective at reviewing each candidate’s background and credentials, ensuring that they will fit with the company’s culture. This leads to better hires overall, less turnover and a happier working environment.

Onboarding Process

Another reason why HR support is essential is because the onboarding process for new hires is well-managed. As new employees start, you can feel confident that they are looked after and have a schedule to follow. Of course, your support and guidance is still important, but it’s nice to know that you’re not in charge of the entire process.

Keep Employees On Track

With a business to manage, the last thing you need is to micromanage your employees. While some direction is needed, it’s reassuring to have an HR department in your corner. Not only can they assist with employee management but also improving quality of life. Personal time, sick time, and family leave help employees balance work and personal needs.

Training and Development

One of the best ways to improve your business is by offering training and development opportunities. This way, you can continually update your employees’ skills and knowledge. Your HR department will find various workshops and classes to attend, as well as collaborate with other departments to maintain your high standards.

Paperwork and Legal Compliance

These days, you can never be too careful. There are so many laws to follow, and if you’re found out of compliance, it could mean big trouble for your company. To avoid this, your HR team will notify you of labor laws and other legislative rules. Knowing that you are in compliance with break times, lunch times, minimum wage, overtime, and discrimination is imperative. Plus, HR makes sure that the proper paperwork is filled out updated and kept secure.

A dedicated HR team goes far beyond hiring and firing employees and supports your business from a variety of angles. To learn more about outsourcing your needs to an HR company, call Abel HR today at 609.860.0400 or visit us online abelhr.com
