Imagine yourself walking into work tomorrow morning-Starbucks or selected drink in hand, just waiting to see what’s next to unfold in your never-ending list of unread e-mails, voice messages …you name it.
Sounds like a normal day, right?
Odds are, you may have a sinking feeling in your stomach at times, coffee stained papers scattered throughout, and at least 5 different HR disasters you’re trying to mend, but there’s a reason you do what you do. You probably enjoy interacting with people, and perhaps you don’t mind a healthy challenge every now and then.
The majority of your job is dealing with people. People have feelings, are subjective, and not as easy to understand or manage compared to black and white checklists. They also happen to be what make or break your organization- you more than anyone understand the value of satisfied, engaged, and thus productive employees.
As an HR professional, you may feel like you are the constant middleman or woman. Balancing your company’s ultimate success on both shoulders while bridging the gap between management and employees is no easy task. With that said, making sure your company’s employees are happy may sometimes end up on the back burner compared to other tasks such as: recruiting, benefits management, hiring procedures, coordinating training methods, or tracking federal and state laws.
It’s easy to feel bewildered.
When making those strategic HR plans for 2015, keep in mind: how do you define success for your company? What’s the “big picture,” and what are you trying to accomplish? Perhaps you base your definition off of the following elements:
1) number of current qualified employees
2) retention of those qualified employees
3) productivity of those qualified, loyal employees
So, now the question is-what are you doing to make sure your company is meeting your predefined standards of success? If you’re looking for an “all-in-one” solution, look no further.
