As HR practitioners, we all know the importance of having job descriptions. However, in working with organizations in my HR consulting role, I have found that not every organization stays as up to date on job descriptions as they should. On several occasions, they are non-existent, not current, do not have all of the areas required, or are missing the ADA requirements.
It’s no secret that performance reviews are a point of contention in the HR community. There are many HR professionals and organizational leaders who want to purge them entirely and there are others that rely heavily on the performance review and would never get rid of them. Then somewhere in the middle are the HR leaders who see them as a necessary evil and a box to check off.
How many times have you heard that HR must have a seat at the table?
Functional audits, including those for HR, aren’t just about compliance. They can transform the way your HR department aligns with your organization’s business objectives. As HR plays a key role in standardizing processes, identifying risk areas, and strategically tying HR goals to business goals, Willory can help guide your company in its transformation.
After completing a recent Recruiting Analysis (Willory’s newest service you can learn about by clicking here), a startling realization hit me: majority of companies are having trouble recruiting and retaining employees because their entire recruiting strategy isn’t properly aligned with the hiring organization’s goals. The result? A painfully long and arduous process to fill job orders and when they are filled… the right person might not be the “winner,” producing high turnover.
We all know the common trope – the one where a frazzled-looking HR professional is surrounded by piles of paperwork and filing cabinets. It would probably be funny if all of us hadn’t seen or experienced it at some point in our careers. However, by creating a culture of sustainability that image can be replaced by a superhero; one who champions both Mother Nature and employee integrity.
