Hi Sanjay,

I am not quite sure if you are looking for mere suggestions or guidance from an established firm with an expertise in setting up HR & Admin processes withing organisations.

In case it is the latter, we at Careercruise could help you in setting up your HR & Admin department.

A little bit about ourselves : We are an eight year old organisation headed by Anjali Misra, ex HR Head GE and having a PAN India presence.

Today our clients include some of the biggest names in the industry. We are running total / partial HR activities for companies like HUL, Barclays Bank & Finance, Accor Hospitality, Bank of America, American Express, Bharti AXA, Prudential UK, JP Morgan Chase, HP, Nokia, Pepsico India to name a few.

We can therefore help your organisation by understanding your AS IN process and then defining a TO BE process.

You could contact us on +919820389180. Alternatively you can suggest your contact so that our representative can touch base with you at your preferred location.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

Imran.

==========================================
HR MANUAL

HR MANUAL is the total guidelines for the managers in the
organization on the subject of HUMAN RESOURCE.

The real work of managing people [ human resource] is the
responsibility of the line managers. The HR department
acts as a coordinator / advisory body to the line managers,
in addition to, its own administrative work.

Employee handbook is a major element of the HR manual.
It is part of the HR MANUAL.

The copy of HR MANUAL [ including the employee handbook]
is given to the managers only.

The copy of the EMPLOYEE handbook is given to the
employees.
=================================================
The TOTAL HR MANUAL development is a never ending
assignment. It needs updating every six months.

At the initial stage, it could take upto six months at least
to complete the manual/ handbook for a full time person,
even if you employ an outside expert.

Once you have downloaded HR manual list, you should
sit with your boss

-analyse the list
-set the priority [ 1st. lot, 2nd. lot, 3rd. lot etc ]
-discuss the need for HO material, to uniform the approach
-discuss the need for local expert
etc
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your priorities could be [ my best guess]

-personnel records
-various forms required
-access control
-workplace rules
-employee hiring
-job descriptions
-employment applications
-interviewing applicants
-payroll administration
-training [ induction / orientation/development]
-employee handbook

You/ Your senior management should agree to the priority list.
==================================================
NOW YOU ARE READY FOR THE HARD WORK

All the best...
