As the end of one year approaches, often thoughts turn to the new year and what it may bring for your business. For many employers this could include changes to staffing, either recruiting new employees or restructuring the business to avoid redundancies later in the year.
The thought of recruiting may fill you with dread and a head full of questions such as:
- How do you write a job description?
- What selection criteria should I use?
- Will I ask the right questions during the interview?
- Are my employment contracts legally compliant?
Recruitment involves a significant amount of work, and it can take time to make sure you recruit the right person who not only fits the role but is also a good fit for your team. When you add the need to be legally compliant to the process, it can all seem overwhelming.
Did you know?
As soon as you start recruiting you are bound by employment law. An applicant can file a discrimination claim if they feel they have been discriminated against at any point during the recruitment process. Seeking advice from HR professionals and getting it right from the start is vital to protect your business.
How can outsourcing help?
When you outsource your recruitment to The HR Dept, they can help you to find your ideal candidate whilst also ensuring the whole process stays on the right side of employment law. You can then concentrate on your business and be as involved in the recruitment as much as you wish.
Working closely with you, they can provide a tailored recruitment package that works for your business. Whether you require assistance with one or two elements or support with the entire process, expert HR advice is on hand.
Restructuring your workforce
Recruitment may not be a priority for you in 2023; instead, you may want to focus on restructuring your workforce for the new year. Like recruitment, this process can be overwhelming and requires legal compliance.
Several factors can influence the need to restructure a business including debt, new products/services, or new ownership. By restructuring your workforce, you can maximise efficiency and profit without losing the knowledge and expertise of your employees when the alternative may mean redundancies. However, restructuring can mean changes to employees’ terms and conditions.
How will HR Dept support you?
HR Dept professionals are highly experienced in providing HR support during company restructurings. Offering specialist guidance and support when you need it most. Ensuring consultations and necessary communications are dealt with in the required timeframes so you and your employees remain fully informed during the entire process.
