Policy on Human Resources and Training:
When starting a small business, human resources policies are rarely a top priority. However, there are benefits to putting these policies into place early, especially in a manufacturing company, so that the company can focus on how to attract, train, and keep employees while keeping everyone on the same page.
Hiring and Recruiting:
Technology may necessitate specific skills to support a company's tasks, whereas the manufacturing sector has traditionally employed unskilled entry-level workers. As a guide for screening and interviewing, HR policies may specify these skills as minimum qualifications. If a company experiences fluctuations in demand, implementing a policy that allows for the use of temporary workers to cover peak times aids in the effective utilization of workers who likely earn an agency a higher hourly wage than regular employees but lack experience or productivity.
Training and Orientation:
Outside of small business, certain aspects of training are required, such as occupational safety and health administration training or state-approved equipment training. A due diligence safeguard, incorporating this into HR policy demonstrates the company's intention to comply.
Retention of Workers:
Each new employee represents an investment for the company. In light of the strong demand for skilled workers, HR policies may want to address employee retention to stop workers from leaving before training investments pay off. HR policies that clearly outline job descriptions, chain of command, dealing with workplace issues like harassment, and resources that employees can access also contribute to a culture that engages staff, in addition to wages and benefits.
Personal and Professional Growth:
Tactical Five outlines development paths in his HR policy manual. For instance, your ideal supervisor's education, training, and experience should be listed so that an ambitious employee can follow. If you have included job descriptions in your HR policy, this may already exist. Consider creating an "inside track" for current employees to convey your concern for their professional development.
