What makes your HR team ex­cel­lent

Kuwait Times - - BUSINESS - Bayt.com weekly re­port

The well-be­ing of em­ploy­ees is highly de­pen­dent on the HR team at ev­ery com­pany. An HR team that fol­lows a trans­par­ent com­mu­ni­ca­tion sys­tem and reg­u­larly updates the em­ploy­ees on what hap­pens in the work­place will in­crease the sense of trust and will help em­ploy­ees de­velop loy­alty to the com­pany. Ac­cord­ing to the Bayt.com Poll: The Role of HR in Middle East and North Africa, 66% of re­spon­dents say their HR de­part­ment is good at shar­ing in­for­ma­tion.

The role of HR does not stop at re­cruit­ment, on-board­ing and train­ing pro­cesses; HR pro­fes­sion­als are ad­vo­cates for em­ploy­ees. They also en­sure a happy and suc­cess­ful work­place and they work to­wards devel­op­ing lead­er­ship think­ing amongst other em­ploy­ees.

In order to build a suc­cess­ful HR team that pro­vides the most for the com­pany and for all em­ploy­ees, Bayt.com, the #1 Job Site in the Middle East, rec­om­mends us­ing the fol­low­ing steps.

1. Cre­ate a mis­sion

Ev­ery suc­cess­ful en­ter­prise has a goal in mind that it works to­wards - also known as the mis­sion state­ment. A sim­i­larly suc­cess­ful HR team must have their own mis­sion that is spec­i­fied prior to even hir­ing them. Do­ing so boosts the ef­fi­ciency of HR pro­fes­sion­als and en­sures that their mis­sion is in align­ment with that of the com­pany. All strate­gies and ef­forts of the HR team must sup­port the over­all busi­ness goals and work to­wards achiev­ing them. How­ever, these goals need to be mold­able as to cater to the com­pany’s unique needs in chang­ing cir­cum­stances.

2. For­mu­late a strat­egy

Strate­gies are the frame­works for how things are done, and ev­ery HR team needs to build a clear and com­pre­hen­sive strat­egy for all as­pects of their tasks, such as hir­ing top tal­ent, em­ployee en­gage­ment and mo­ti­va­tion, tal­ent re­ten­tion, etc. HR strate­gies are built ac­cord­ing to their mis­sion, and can be amended based on changes that take place grad­u­ally. It is vi­tal that all HR ac­tiv­i­ties are not played by ear but are sys­tem­at­i­cally guided and in sup­port of a strat­egy and a mis­sion.

3. En­able au­to­ma­tion

HR pro­fes­sion­als have a lot to jug­gle. Their du­ties and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties range from re­cruit­ment and on-board­ing, to ad­min­is­tra­tive re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and pay­roll co­or­di­na­tion. Time man­age­ment and work ef­fi­ciency are, there­fore, in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant for suc­cess­ful HR prac­tices. Sup­port your HR team and al­low them to uti­lize tools such as Bayt.com’s au­to­mated plat­forms and charts, spe­cial­ized HR soft­ware, applicant track­ing sys­tems, on­line pay­roll and at­ten­dance track­ing re­sources, etc. This will make sure that their pre­cious time is used most wisely.

4. Learn­ing and im­ple­men­ta­tion

Con­tin­u­ous learn­ing is fun­da­men­tal. New trends de­velop daily and the needs of em­ploy­ees change de­pend­ing on their age, po­si­tions, ex­pe­ri­ence, and in­dus­try. HR plays a key role in train­ing other team mem­bers in the com­pany, which is the rea­son why they should be trained as well. So when hir­ing HR pro­fes­sion­als, look for in­di­vid­u­als who are com­mit­ted to per­sonal ex­cel­lence and who want to con­stantly im­prove them­selves. En­cour­age them to at­tend sem­i­nars, read more re­sources and re­search re­ports, and keep up with mar­ket and hir­ing trends. Af­ter all, your HR team should al­ways be one step ahead.

Pro­vid­ing learn­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for your HR team is not suf­fi­cient on its own. It is im­por­tant that the tools and strate­gies adopted stay up to date with cur­rent mar­ket trends and shifts. Your HR team should be ca­pa­ble of ap­ply­ing what they learn and devel­op­ing it for the suc­cess of the com­pany.
