Boring HR?

Much as we hate to admit it, HR has something of a reputation for being a little bit boring.  It’s a burden that we’ve carried for many years, and is one that sticks like glue in a lot of circles.

But is there any hard evidence behind it? Are we really just a group of dull individuals who can bring nothing more to your business than bureaucracy, endless forms to complete and pointless policies that never see the light of day? 

We’re willing to look at the arguments and here are three reasons why the naysayers might just be right … 

We can keep you out of the Employment Tribunal

The court room is an exciting place to be … right? It’s where most business owners want to end up when they’re busy running a business and striving towards growth. Of course, it’s not. It’s your worst nightmare, and it can be costly and stressful.  Good HR practices will ensure that you’re not accidently breaking the law and will go a long way to prevent you from ever having to defend a claim.

We can save you money 

Is making money more appealing than saving money? It could be argued that it is. If you’re particularly bold then you might decide to just focus on bringing more in, whilst ignoring the fact that your spending is spiralling out of control.  Good business owners know that it’s a mix of both which is why they use HR professionals to make sure that their staffing budget is invested in the right areas.

We can make your workplace a positive and productive place 

Some people thrive on drama, gossip and scandal and probably feel that without these things, life can be pretty dull. If this sounds like you, then HR might not be your bag.  Most business owners and Managers want everyone to get along and form positive working relationships, and a good HR professional will guide and support you to move towards an aligned and productive work place.
 
If you still think these things are boring, then HR is guilty as charged. 

But if you recognise that these things are key in running a profitable and sustainable business we can bring the right brand of ‘boring’ to your business, and steer you clear of the unnecessary headaches and dramas.
