How to Elevate Your HR Infrastructure in 3 Easy Steps

Having a strong HR infrastructure is one of the keys to having a strong organization. From complying with the law to performance management, the infrastructure is the centralized piece that holds everything together. You can improve your HR infrastructure in 3 easy steps and keep everyone - from management to employees - on the same page.

What is HR Infrastructure?

Think of the HR infrastructure as the foundation and “skeleton” of your business. You can’t see it, but it provides the support you need to keep your business organized and in shape. This typically includes employee and company handbooks, policies, I-9 processes, regulation compliance, and other elements that lower risk and boost productivity. A strong infrastructure helps you to plan ahead and be proactive about decisions as you recruit and manage your employees.

3 Steps to Strengthening Your HR Infrastructure

It ensures they can meet certain standards and adhere to set policies as an employee in your company. If your HR infrastructure needs some work, follow the three steps below to improve it.

 

1. Attain HR Expertise

Your human resources team needs expertise in a number of areas to successfully manage the company and its employees. However, managing HR in-house is difficult for many businesses, especially when managing employee needs, maintaining regulatory compliance and staying updated with labor laws and employment trends.

By partnering with a PEO, businesses gain access to a team of qualified HR professionals with advanced degrees and certifications who can provide strategic and tactical HR and administrative support. With this level of expertise, you can set the stage for a strong HR infrastructure.

2. Implement HR Policies and Procedures

Having policies and procedures in place protects the company and its employees. By doing this, you’re providing guidelines for your employees that help ensure they follow proven processes, take necessary safety measures, and adhere to certain ethical quality standards.

Policies and procedures should be documented through:

  • Employee and job manuals

  • Training and safety manuals

  • Ethics and values statements

  • Disciplinary procedures

  • Termination processes

Skipping this step can cost your business time and money in the form of expensive errors, employee injuries or lawsuits and litigation.

3. Develop Training Programs
