Can HR add value or is it just a nice to have?

Can HR add value?

If you have ever asked yourself the question, can HR add value then ask yourself this. Do you believe that your people are your most valuable asset? If you answered yes to that question, then HR is vital. It is not just a nice to have, quality HR adds value to your organisation.

The long term success of any organisation is usually directly linked to the talents, motivation and accomplishments of its people.

As you grow as a workplace, your HR needs will grow and develop. There will come a time when you can’t possibly try and manage everything yourself. When that happens, bringing HR professionals, like Cornerstone Resources, in to help will save you considerable time and effort.

How do you know how to manage someone who is off sick or someone who has told you they want to adopt? 

HR ensures the right policies and procedures are in place for your organisation, not only to protect you but also to ensure your people are treated fairly and consistently. HR can also coach you and your leaders to give you the tools to make the consistent decisions that help you to create an engaged workforce.

Do you know how many people work for you, paid and voluntary and what they are entitled to?

HR will work with you to develop systems so you have this information at the tip of your fingers and ensure up-to-date contracts and processes etc are in place to ensure you as an organisation are following the law. HR can also help you to benchmark how competitive your terms and conditions are against those offered by other companies. This will help you to make informed decisions that can help you recruit and retain the employees you need to meet your growth needs.

How do you manage the performance of your employees so that not only do you benefit from their productivity but they benefit by being rewarded for their effort and creativity?

HR works with managers to understand the organisational strategy,  build in to objectives, train managers in how to performance manage their teams, as well as how to develop their people to bring out the best in them and how to reward them.

How do you recruit, and keep, people? 

Maybe it’s an apprentice, maybe it’s someone for a fixed period of time or maybe it’s a permanent employee.  It’s essential to know what resources you need as an organisation so you have the best people helping to move your organisation forward.  HR develops and manages the ways you can attract, recruit, train, motivate and keep your people.

Where can you turn when you have issues or conflicts in your teams? 

HR professionals, who are up-to-date on employment law, can help to advise managers and navigate them through the more challenging times in the workplace….with the ultimate aim of creating a positive culture where employees don’t feel they need to escalate issues but can resolve them informally.

How do you develop your employees, so you are able to fill more senior positions from within your organisation? 

HR can help to work with you to identify employees’ next steps, their preferred learning style, areas they’d like to develop and look at affordable / non-financial ways of how they can achieve this over time.  Maybe you are a small business and opportunities may seem limited…HR can help you to think of different options.
