Keep reading to learn how to set your organization up for HR success in 2023!
Have a Written Handbook and Policy Document
If you haven’t already, the new year is a great opportunity to develop a written handbook or policy document that outlines important facets of your organization. A written handbook allows your organization to clearly communicate expectations to your employees. It should serve as a reference to review in times of uncertainty. Your handbook or policy document should include items like office dress code expectations, onboarding procedures, payroll information, set office hours, and more.
Organize Your Employee Files Efficiently
Start the new year off on the right foot by ensuring all employee files are organized in an efficient manner. Don’t waste your time digging through files in 2023, and instead get organized before the new year starts. All personnel files should be in alphabetical order by the department for easy access. You may even want to consider securely backing up these documents on the cloud, safely.
Reevaluate Your Employee Benefits Package
The start of a new year means that your employee benefits clock has reset. Now is a great time to evaluate the types of employee benefits you offer to your team. Look for ways to improve, like offering more competitive paid time off, health insurance benefits, expense stipends, wellness benefits, or educational assistance.
Assess Your Office Culture
Have you noticed that employee morale was slipping in 2022? Or maybe you have had to resolve multiple conflicts amongst employees over the past year? Take this time before the new year begins to assess your organization’s office culture. Think about how you can improve the work environment to create a better office for your team. At the end of the day, the kind of culture you determine for your organization should align with your business’s core values.
Make Sure Everyone is on the Same Page
In order to run a successful business, every team member needs to be on the same page when it comes to overall goals and visions for the organization. Take the start of a new year as an opportunity to communicate your company’s overall vision for the future. Be sure to allow your employees time to ask questions and provide suggestions for improvement, too.
