Your Human Resources staff gets the ball rolling. They make the big calls as far as staffing goes and is responsible for a great work environment. However, it’s important that when your HR department seems a little stretched thin that your organization takes action. Learn to identify the common signs that your HR staff needs assistance and make sure your staffing agency stays protected with an iron-clad Employment Practices Liability Insurance policy.
According to an article in RealStreet Staffing, it’s imperative that you identify the following:
- According to Indeed.com, two-fifths of U.S. jobs are filled within 30 days. If your HR team fails to meet this statistic, then chances are that position will remain open for three months or more. If these positions continue to remain unfilled, it’s time to help out.
- High turnover levels are definitely not a good sign. If this is the case, than you know your HR team is hiring the wrong people. Consider offering extra training to help them learn to choose the right candidates.
- Make sure your employees are participating in a structured onboarding process. According to the Department of Labor, 56% of new hires are more likely to remain with a company if there is an onboarding program.
- It’s critical to avoid violations from state and federal agencies because of issues that could have been avoided. Make sure you are going through regulatory compliance paperwork and correcting employee performance issues immediately.
- Your Human Resource staff is also responsible for a great team morale. If morale goes south and employees seem distracted, disengaged and unmotivated, it’s time to take action. You don’t want inefficient employees.
