Setting up of HR / Personnel Administration Department shall need experience which may be provided by a consulting firm . We do provide such services but are based at Mumbai. You may locate some agency for this purpose locally which may benefit you as well for a londer run.

Hi Shalini
1. First understand the existing systems in place
2. If nothing is existent, try to understand from the bill payments made to Admin related vendors every month and understand the trend
3. Try to understand and clarify on the staff of Admin and requirement for the post
4. Have clarity of roles if you plan to hire new people for Admin
5. Start with minimum staff.
6. See if all reporting structures are available else create the same
All the very best

Hi Shalini,

Admin. department generally has the same broad functions but this is how you should go ahead:

1. Understand/ask for the job description in HR and Admin.. Jobs in Admn. are mostly office management involving common sense. Remember there is no MBA/degree/diploma worth its name for specialising in this function.

2. List down the Admin. jobs

3. Enquire from staff with longer tenure in the Company, what are the Admin. practices in vogue in your Company. Follow them but improve on them.

4. Basically, you have to maintain the office and its decorum well in Admin function. Therefore, it requires you/your staff to identify new vendors/maintain existing vendors, prepare/renew their AMCs/contracts, ensure preventive breakdown of office services, front office/reception, office upkeep and, periodic evaluation of services vis-a-vis costs.

5. Take office/Admin files, if any, in your possession and read the documents therein.

In short, Admin. involves :

1. Office security

2. Housekeeping services

3. Office Canteen/Cafeteria services

4. Front Office/Reception

5. Building/Office maintenance (Civil (masonary)/Carpentry/Electrical

services/office renovation/repair/painting/polishing)

6. Horticulture (if there are gardens/plants, etc)

7. Office dak and despatch

8. Fire fighting equipment/drills

9. Office printing and stationery

10.Office cars/transportation

11.Electrical connections

12.Office design/layout planning/architecture/construction

13.Office telephones/faxes/telecommunication (IPLC, broadband,

internet, etc.)

14.Office furniture/furnishing

15.Office carpeting/re-carpeting

16.Office toiletries/consumables/cleaning material

17.Office pantry/eatables

18.Ticket/hotel booking for customers/clients/visitors/employees

19. Office attire/uniform

20. Class 4 staff handling (peons, gardeners, drivers, pantry boys,

guards, etc)

21. Pest control

22. Airconditioning/HVAC

23. Employee First Aid

24. Guest relations/hospitality management

25. Admin. vendor development/evaluation, purchases, auction of office


26.Leasing/buying/selling office/real estate

27. Constructing office building(s)

28. Buying/maintaining EPABX, Computers (if not IT deptt), Faxes, Photocopiers/

29.Office alarm/locking system - installation/maintenance

30. Office lift/escalator, common areas, carpet/super areas, etc.

I may have missed out some but generally Admin may involve all or some of the above. Admin work responsibilities would depends on which industry you are in and the size/topological spread of your organization.

Hope this helps.
