7 most frequent HR mistakes and how to avoid them

| Employee Benefits

In the workplace, a few key details can make or break a business. These details are often overlooked, but they can have a big impact on the success or failure of a company.

One of the most important details is HR. HR is responsible for everything from hiring and firing to employee benefits and training. If HR is not done correctly, it can lead to a number of problems, including:

  • Lawsuits
  • Fines
  • Damaged reputation
  • Difficulty attracting and retaining top talent

This e-book will outline the 7 most frequent HR mistakes and how to avoid them. These mistakes can lead to liabilities for businesses, so it is important to be aware of them and take steps to prevent them.

  • Lack of an updated employee handbook: An employee handbook is valuable for businesses. It can help to set expectations for employees, provide guidance on workplace policies, and protect the business from liability. However, it is important to keep the handbook updated to reflect changes in the law or the business.
  •  Lack of documentation for performance-based terminations: Impulsive terminations can lead to liability. Establish a progressive discipline policy and document all discussions with employees to protect your business.
  • Insufficient and improperly stored employee records: Incomplete employee files can lead to liability. Employers should keep complete and accurate employee files and conduct regular audits to ensure the information is secure.
