Are you setting up a business and looking for an HR essentials checklist? Well you have found it!
This checklist details all the essential things your business needs to keep your HR function running smoothly whilst complying with employment law.
It really is an essentials checklist though-there are some things that could be added to future proof your business, such as staffing plans, performance review templates, and exit interview pro formas.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that just because there are a handful of staff now you don’t need all these HR essentials. You do! It is a legal requirement to have policies such as those dealing with Disciplinary and Grievance and a contract of employment. Getting the basics ready now will save you time and effort when you do expand.
Do You Need Help With Your HR Essentials?
Here at Metis HR, we provide outsourced HR advice and activities. Not only do we save you time and money by preparing documents for you, but we also make sure they are legal, sufficient, and tailored.
Of course, you can find a generic contract of employment, staff handbook, and policies on the internet but if they don’t reflect and detail how you actually want your business to run and what you expect from your staff they are next to useless.
We will work with you to ensure your HR essential documents and policies are perfectly tailored to you and how you see the business being run in the future.
