I am starting my own company this year, which has about 12 employees, and I am thinking about the importance of HR services. Should I hire someone for that position, or can I use an external service or online site? And what are the most important things I should do before launch?
You are fantastic How do I know this? Because you are thinking about human resources before launching your company instead of waiting until there is a big problem. It is always easy to start with a good, solid HR plan when you first have an issue.
If you are planning on 12 employees, you probably do not need to hire a full-time HR person. You want to hire someone part-time, but most likely you can hire a consultant or HR outsourcing company. If your business will require people working on-site instead of 12-telecom passengers – hire a local person. That way, if you need an HR person for a difficult conversation, the consultant can come in. In addition, a lot of HR policies and procedures depend on local laws, so you want an HR specialist. There are a lot of different rules in India.
Why Startups Need HR Help
Here Are The Things You Want To Do Before Launching:
1.Think About Benefits
You want to offer excellent health benefits, so talk with brokers about what is appropriate and what is not. When you first look at the numbers, you may feel a little nervous, so be prepared. See what your competitors do and whether you can spend reasonably.
Then think about sick and vacation time. Federal law does not require vacation or vacation time, so you are free to do what you want. But California considers vacation time to be earned income, so you will have to pay any earned leave if someone leaves. You can have a maximum earned level, but you cannot have a use-or-lose-it policy. Vacation time is important for most job candidates, so watch what your competitors do – and mix or beat it. Make sure you have earned a maximum; Otherwise, if you have an employee who never takes the time and then leaves, you will have to pay a larger amount. This is not good for your business or their mental health.
Sick leave is another benefit for prospective employees. In California, employers must allow employees to use at least 24 hours or three days of paid leave per year, and some local jurisdictions, require more. (You can see why you want a local HR consultant and an employment lawyer to advise you.)
Other benefits and benefits can wait until you have the staff to see what they think. Want a free lunch to tempt people from the world’s Googles? The people you hire may have food allergies or dietary requirements. Want to come to the dry cleaner once a week to get clothes? If everyone is wearing jeans and a T-shirt, then it makes no sense. Therefore, assess your employees before deciding on such allowances.
- Determine Your Culture
This is a new business, and you are the owner, so you have to choose. But you can’t say, “We have a free-thinking, open-door policy” and then they shout at anyone asking the question. But is on-site presence mandatory, or can people work at home? Are the hours hard or flexible?
Think through what you are comfortable with. Employees love the flexibility, but if it would make you crazy to not have everyone at your desk until 8:05 in the morning, think about it. There are many who enjoy this type of workplace. Pretend not to be something you’re not.
- Get All Your Legal Policies In Order
Your advisor should have a template for you. This will include will and non-governmental policies, employee conduct guidelines, expense reimbursement, and other things you consider. You don’t want to accidentally violate a law because you never heard of it.
- Put All This In The Handbook
Your handbook is an important tool in explaining culture and rules. Your handbook binds you legally, so make sure it says you want it and conforms to federal, state, and local laws.
- Get An HR Information System
Sure, you can do everything in a spreadsheet, but please do not. There are a lot of options for small businesses that are relatively cheap and will make your life more comfortable in the long run. There are rules about employee data, and a professionally run HR information system can help you follow them.
I think that everything discussed here has dollar signs attached to it, and you can panic about how to develop policies.
