5 Tips for Human Resources Success from CPS VP of HR Solutions
Human Resources departments today are struggling under the weight of ensuring compliance with the increasing number of labor regulations, and it can be very difficult for an HR team to find success while constantly reacting to potential risk.
Fortunately, there are several simple ways to encourage a productive and pleasant work culture for everyone in your company, as Complete Payroll Solutions VP and Director of Complete HR Solutions Karyn Rhodes’ outlined in her article “5 Steps to HR Leadership Success”—featured in the June edition of Cape & Plymouth Business magazine.
“The typical Human Resources department is now largely focused on ways to comply with rules and regulations to avoid penalties,” Rhodes writes. “But, in an effort to reduce an organization’s risk, there’s a significant downside to this approach.”
Rhodes goes on to explain that an environment lacking creativity and humanity can hurt both the employees and the business overall in the long run. In order to avoid this, Rhodes recommends the following five steps:
- Get Talking
- Pay Attention
- Watch for Words
- Be a Leader First, Not a Friend
