New Year HR Resolutions for Small Businesses

By 1st January 2019 Human Resources

The New Year means a new start for individuals and businesses alike and represents the ideal opportunity for you to check off some key HR Resolutions from your to do list.

To help you on your way, the team at HCHR has come up with some key resolutions that will help your business to grow and develop in 2019.

And don’t forget, if you don’t have your own in-house HR department, HCHR offers a bespoke consultancy service to businesses of any size, delivered by a team of qualified and professional team.


HR Resolution #1: Spend Less Time on Hiring and Still Find the Best Employees

This New Year focus on improving your accuracy when it comes to recruitment.  You don’t want to spend hours interviewing candidates who are the wrong fit. Let this year be the year that you efficiently hire great candidates. You can then take the next step by demonstrating to new employees that your business is professional, organised, and efficient through robust policies and procedures as well as training programmes and career opportunities.

HR Resolution #2: Develop a Culture that Your Employees Love

In 2019, you can take your workplace culture to the next level.  Having a great culture will increase retention, attract potential employees, and even increase productivity and your bottom line. You can introduce a process for recognition and reward for example; or you can ensure that your employee communications is open and offers two way conversations.

HR Resolution #3: Master Performance Management

Managing employees is constant and that doesn’t change from year to year; but most managers will admit that there’s room for improvement.  A robust performance management process is an area of HR practice that can allow you to systematically measure performance so you can take steps to reward success and intervene when the identified standard of performance falls short of what is required.

HR Resolution #4: Understand Workplace Harassment Basics

It’s not the most fun topic, but now is the time to brush up on harassment and bullying legislation.  2019 should not be the year that your business becomes entangled in any harassment/bullying issues or illegal and unwanted behaviour. Business owners should not only ensure that they understand the regulations but should also have in place a process for handling inappropriate behaviour, complaints and disputes.

Happy New Year from HCHR

We hope these four resolutions will help you to take your business to the next level in 2019.  If you don’t have the correct policies and procedures in place to achiever your New Year goals or if you don’t have the resources to deliver this strategy, please call us today on the number below for a free half hour HR phone consultation:
