Human Resources MVP
by: BAASS Editor | January 07, 2016

One of the most overlooked and misunderstood departments in an organization is Human Resources. The functions of the HR department is paramount to the success of a business. Responsible for everything from day-to-day employee relations, hiring and firing, internal controls, coaching, recruitment, training, company culture and more all lie on the human resources staff. We have compiled a list tips for human resource managers to reach maximum effectiveness for your organization:

  • Communication – ensure the lines of communication are open with your employees. Gaining insight and perspective from your staff can provide critical information to ensure employee satisfaction.
  • Take an interest – Going beyond basic professional dialog, get to know your employees and express a genuine interest in their lives and well-being.
  • Provide feedback – Your employees cannot read your mind. Be sure to take time to let your staff know what they’re doing right as well as what needs improvement.
  • Be flexible and understanding – There are more than one right way to achieve a result. Be flexible when someone is doing things their way rather than yours. Unless it is directly affecting business – the way the results are achieved don’t matter as long as they're getting the job done.
  • Create unity – Create a unified environment. People who feel part of a team will work better together.
  • Find their strengths – Help your staff work within their unique strengths. Most teams will have a breadth of talent and strengths. Utilize the unique strengths of individuals who ensure everyone is working within their unique skill set.
  • Schedule regular check-ins – Create a time to meet with your staff individually every three to four months. Not only should this time include a thorough evaluation of their performance but you should also elicit feedback from them on how the organization is doing and what can be done better.
A well-managed HR department has the potential to bring an organization to the next level, and we have amazing tools to help you achieve that.  Learn more about achieving a higher ROEI by contacting a BAASS representative today.
