Why should you care about HR? In short – it’s about your people.
 
Each department in a company has a function. Marketing is about brand awareness. Sales to bring in customers/clients. Accounting to track the money. HR is about the people.
 
Why should you focus on the people? Here’s a simple equation.
 
Happy Employees = happier customers/clients which in turn will return and refer businesses. This can reduce what’s needed in sales and marketing. Reducing expenses while increasing revenue = higher profits.
 
I know “happy” sounds elusive or hard to measure, so how’s it done?
 
Human Resources does this by focusing on:
  • the culture and values of the organization.
  • Ensures people have a sense of purpose to their work.
  • Helps set expectations for both the employees and the company.
  • Determine salary and benefits.
  • Establishing development goals
  • Employee Engagement
  • Communicate, communicate, and communicate.
Human Resources also focuses on the company needs by:
  • Ensuring legal compliance
  • Maintaining an organizational structure which supports the goals
  • Finding the right people to work at the company
  • Ensure high potential/performers stay
  • Take corrective action
  • Translate leadership objectives for communication
 
Do you care about HR? What can happen to the business if you don’t?
