Even before COVID-19 drastically impacted the workforce, having a positive environment in the organization was a necessity. HR functions are not only limited to improving employee engagement or productivity in the organization, but they also focus on enhancing employee wellness and development. Any budding organization understands the importance of HR functions perfectly. After all, it is not an easy task to keep the workforce motivated.
Traditionally, HR was focused primarily on recruitment and payroll management, but in the current scenario, a myriad of functions come under the HR umbrella such as employee benefits, employee compliance, training sessions, development sessions, and many more.
In a new startup, HR plays a nominal role, but when the startup begins scaling, it becomes critical to have the right talent for the right roles. Although the task seems easy enough, it is not. Looking for the right employee aligned with the organization’s goals and ethics is an arduous task that requires a deep understanding of the organization’s core values. Not just recruitment, HR functions encompass all that is an ’employee’. It ensures the workforce has the relevant tools, resources, managers, and motivation to complete their duties.
