Boost HR Productivity in SMEs

In our experience, budgets are usually leaner and expectations higher for HR departments in mid range organisations. We find quite rightly that return on investment, getting it right first time and working as productively as possible rank highly on a HR Manager’s priority list in a SME.

So how can you boost HR productivity? Well having worked with a multitude of mid-sized businesses we find that starting with these 3 basic elements provide an excellent springboard to enhancing HR productivity.

Review your HR Processes

Start by understanding who the department’s key stakeholders are and what their touchpoints are so that you can better engage with them. This will highlight the important business drivers and HR focus areas.

Then take the opportunity to look inwards at your processes and their outputs. Are they efficient and effective? Map them to see how they can be streamlined to remove duplication.

Embrace the Cloud

Cloud based HR systems like Fairsail have designed especially for SME’s with a highly competitive implementation costs and relatively quick implementation timeframes, usually a lapse time of only one to three months. Importantly cloud systems put control of systems, data and reporting management back in the HR Manager’s hands – as the systems are designed for non technical users. Therefore HR users don’t need the IT department or external consultants to manage the system or the data on their behalf.

Collaborate and Communicate

HR departments should make the most of their HR technology to improve communication within the business. Communication is no longer the preserve of the marketing team instead HR should be as communication savvy as marketers. Consider webinars, snap poles and instant messaging to share information little and often for maximum impact.

Productivity levels can be boosted on collaborative projects as there is no longer a need to send files back and forth multiple times; employees are instead able to open and work on the same files with much less hassle.

Employee Data Checklist

Handy employee data checklist

Why should you collect and manage key data on your employees? It’s important because it helps to improve communication throughout your organisation and ensure your company policies and protocols are adhered to.

So now that we have established that it is important what should you collect? Read on for a handy checklist of essential data you need to keep on record for each of your employees.

1.     The Essentials

Contact details and residential addresses of each employee should be kept on file. This ensures communication is optimised and every employee receives all the information they need for their job. It is also important to keep emergency contact details on record. This information should be updated as regularly as is necessary to ensure the data is useful and effective.

2.     Background

Employers should be well-educated on the background of each of their employees. This includes everything from criminal records to details about previous employment. This type of information helps to determine whether or not the employee is suited to their role. Data in this category should include any past convictions, how many times they changed their job in the past, details of experience gained and how well they performed in their previous roles.

3.     Personal Attributes

Up-to-date information about the employees in their current roles should also be recorded. Regular feedback should be noted along with performance metrics and credentials. This information should also include personal interests and specialisms of the employees to ensure they are happy with and well-suited to their roles.

4.     Future Plans

Data should be kept on file to help plan the future of your employees within the business of further afield. Information regarding willingness to relocate should be recorded along with potential for internal mobility. This includes opportunities for your employees to progress to leadership and management positions. Each employee should be involved in active career development planning and details of this should also be kept.

Overall the information kept on record about your employees should paint a clear picture, from details about their past, current strengths and the direction they are heading in for the future.
