No 1 is to start with the job profiles

Start by creating a job description or role outline that each person working in that capacity must fulfil. Outlining each individuals job responsibilities and requirements will make your role in HR that much easier. Besides, this role outlining will help the individual to identify exactly what their duties are and will work for future hiring's, such as, when you need to do a profile for the required post. You can seek professional help in this capacity as a number of HR consultancy firms like OrangeHRM, offer design and development and requirement analysis as part of their services. Find a good firm to retain with a good open source HRMS support to ensure your start is successful.


Use the created profiles to outline a management structure of the company

A solid company structure has many benefits, while it may face some resistance if you are a start-up firm, compiling a proper profile of your companies hierarchy will help with workforce planning, outsourcing and even creates a succession structure which really helps iron out any issues that crop up in the latter context.


Create a staff plan

This really does help, even if your company is very small. Having a proper staff plan you can refer back to will turn out to be very important as it helps with areas such as sales and operations, product developments and marketing and also who you should talk to with regards to certain issues. You must have a rough plan for the next 12 months, in order to know who you must hire, to fine tune and enjoy a smooth running operation with no wasted overheads.


Create a 'System'

An Excel spreadsheet is the starting point for most companies. However, you should look at creating a proper 'application tracking system' which will help you track your existing staff and also help with new hiring's in fields you require new staff. And as a major part of your routine will involve keeping track of applications and candidates, a proper system will seem invaluable.


Create a salary structure doc

Most small companies overlook this very valuable document, which really helps you create a proper salary structure, thus helping you evaluate and gauge salary structures against similar posts within your company; plus you can evaluate market values for a fair and proper compensation measure. Keep revising the salary structure every 6 months, in order to stay updated and make sure that additional benefits like stock sharing options, compensation, profit sharing, and work-flex environment benefits too, are added to the structure, as a separate context, apart from the main salary structure.
As you can see these are 5 simple steps to start a successful HR operation, make sure to choose a good HR consultant capable of offering you valuable insights and advise to reap the best benefits.
