Are you happy with your answers to these questions?
- Are my staff professionally trained or promoted from within the company?
- Can they negotiate at every level both inside the company and outside? How about the labour courts?
- Does my HR team know how to interview for success?
- How does the team keep up to date with new legislation?
- What processes are in place for record keeping, updating company handbooks, staffing procedures etc?
- Is there a plan to ensure staff motivation stays high?
These skill sets cannot always be learned from a book, and can also be an innate trait. However, it is possible to teach tried and tested methods to ensure that the company's position is protected. Are you confident that all your bases are covered?
A human resource consultant can help you answer those questions with confidence.
