Are you setting your employees up for success or for lawsuits?
A recent blitz of companies in Ontario found the following:
What does a good HR program consist of? Payroll Procedures and Record Keeping Are you compliant with the laws regarding number of hours worked, overtime, holiday pay, vacation pay, breaks, family leave etc.
Hiring Procedures Do you and your staff know which questions are illegal? You might be surprised to know what you cannot ask! Do you always do a second interview and check references? Do you have customized interview, reference, job offer and employment contract templates?
Onboarding and Orientation Do you have a thorough integration and training program for your new employees including training checklists for all roles? Studies show that employees who participate in an organized onboarding program are 60% more likely to be with that company 3 years later. Do you have a new employee orientation session for all new team members? Do you provide ongoing training and development for your team?
Company Policies Do you have an up to date employee handbook that describes your mission statement and includes topics such as professionalism, social media, cell phone usage, grooming standards and other operational guidelines?
Performance Management Do you have comprehensive job descriptions and performance appraisals for each role based on your company’s standards of performance? Is there a process in place to ensure that employee performance issues are dealt with positively, fairly and legally including Progressive Discipline and termination? Have your department heads been trained on how to conduct feedback and disciplinary conversations and how to properly document these?
