Hello HR professionals! Do you ever have to grapple with HR naysayers? These with a bad attitude toward your department?
Today’s article is a tribute to Human Resources. The next time you are challenged, you will be better able to justify why HR is the most important business function.
HR Sets The Stage For Success
Human Resources creates the conditions for all the other teams to succeed.
The hiring team finds employees who can drive innovation. HR handles admin functions so everyone else can do their jobs. HR resolves conflicts so they don’t curb productivity.
HR Increase Employee Engagement
Human Resources increases employee engagement. Engaged employees become brand evangelists. It’s the most valuable form of advertising.
Engaged employees serve your clients. Without dedicated service agents, you wouldn’t have any sales revenue.
Engaged employees are loyal. High retention saves money.
Engaged employees mentor new employees. This shortens the learning curve.
HR Lowers Expenses
Let’s talk about how HR can directly impact revenue.
HR manages employee benefits. Many organizations have struggled because of mismanaged health and retirement plans.
HR keeps you compliant. A DOL fine can cripple a small organization.
HR manages employee timekeeping so you don’t overpay for labor. Even modest savings on payroll makes an impact.
HR Protects The Company
This is how some Redditors said they would answer ‘Why does HR exist?’ if challenged by their boss:
‘The reason you haven’t been sued into oblivion is in large part thanks to HR.’
‘Because I cover your [insert favorite synonym for butt]’
Many people do not understand the complexities of compliance. You’ve made sure they don’t have to. Compliance shouldn’t be taken lightly. Many companies have learned that the hard, costly way.
To sum it up, Human Resources
- Provides value rather than revenue
- Creates the conditions for business success
- Inspires workforce performance
- Manages operating expenses
- Prevents compliance violations
