The pandemic has forced your business to overcome a great deal of challenges over the last two years: a potential drop in sales brought about by the lockdown; a large proportion of your workforce moving to remote working; furlough; redundancy; and much more. This reactionary behaviour happened quickly, and it’s possible that the quality of your processes and contracts slipped along the way. But don’t worry; help is available to get you back on track before it causes significant problems.
What problems should I be worried about?
The importance of solid HR practices has grown significantly in recent years as businesses have grown larger and more complex. HR plays a vital role in ensuring that employees are productive and happy and that the company is compliant with all relevant laws and regulations.
If we start with the first point, that employees are productive and happy, to achieve this, you need to ensure that both you as the employer and your employee are fulfilling the terms of the contract. Do you have this stored on file, and is it up-to-date and accurate?
Also, are you on top of rewards and benefits? Do you know how much holiday every member of your staff is due and has had? Simple records like this are crucial in the effective running of your business.
In terms of compliance with all relevant laws and regulations, how is that going? It may be that you’re now subject to a few more regulations than you were since the pandemic began – have you checked? Failure to comply could result in huge financial penalties for your business and a damaged reputation.
In fact, with so much change in your business, every company policy should have been reviewed to reflect the new circumstances. Neglect this step and you could find yourself fined, in court or with deeply unhappy employees and customers.
