New to HR, you may be fooled into thinking it is a straightforward procedure to employ someone, give them work to do and ensure they are paid on time. This is not necessarily so – HR and payroll consists of a complex web of policies and procedures that extends far beyond the normal everyday workings of your business.
It pays to implement the national industry standard guidelines in order to avoid falling foul of the law or creating dissatisfaction and resentment in your workplace. This is easier said than done, however, as you’ll find guidelines and policies for everything from working hours and breaks to maternity leave; from pay and tax to bereavement. Worse still, policies and legislation are constantly changing and updating so you will most likely need to learn all of this more than once.
You can access all the information, standard forms and policies to read and implement yourself, but this is highly time consuming. Another way to streamline this process is to employ people to manage it for you, although this can be an unwanted expense which doesn’t overcome the initial hurdle of employing your first staff. Or you could employ a specialist payroll company to take the burden off your hands.
