4 Critical HR Tools At Your Fingertips
1. EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK
A comprehensive handbook informs your employees about important policies regarding employment, conduct, compensation, health & safety and more. It’s crucial for demonstrating that your organization’s policies and procedures meet legal requirements – and it serves as valuable protection if an employee were to file a lawsuit against your business.
2. JOB DESCRIPTIONS
Attracting and retaining great talent starts with well-written job description. It can also limit overtime disputes by clearly noting whether a role is exempt vs non-exempt. By describing essential job functions, it can also help assess if an employee with a stated disability is able to do the job. Simply put, good job descriptions can save your organization time and money.
3. NEW HIRE DOCUMENTS
A clear offer letter is a key part of the onboarding process. It conveys rate of pay, expected hours and employee classification. It also allows the employer to emphasize an at-will employment relationship. Other new hire forms, such as W-4s and background checks will allow you to comply with federal laws while helping protect your business.
4. EMPLOYEE RELATIONS SOLUTIONS
Whether it’s an employee coming in a bit late or not excelling in all aspects of their position, handling employee relations issues well is critical to the health of your workplace. Managing these issues quickly and professionally not only protects your organization – it often helps reduce turnover, keeps morale high and establishes a thriving company culture.
