Hi there, Have a presentation to do in extremely short notice, on the benefits of effective and efficient HR Administration and how it can impact on the organisation?
Can anyone help?? Give me some ideas or pointers please. Never did this sort of thing before!!
Working on it tonight so hopefully will get some responses.

Ok, we all hate emergency presentations but here's a quick guide to belt out a decent package without much thought.
  1. Only include what you know you talk about
  2. Expand each item to include 3-5 sub headings
  3. Talk about the big picture and don't go into detail
  4. Summarise your whole presentation into one sentence at the end

For instance, you may want to talk about recruiting but you wouldn't just say "I'll arrange the interviews and file the documents".

More likely you'd say..


1) Analyse the needs of a job

2) Utilise the best method(s) to advertise

3) Are the methods above cost effective?

4) What process are we going to use to select the right candidate

5) What style interview are we going to use?

6) Do the interviewers know how to ask the right questions?


Some of the top level headings you can use in your presentation can be:
  • Recruitment
  • Training
  • Absence management
  • Absence management
  • Organisation Development
  • Discipline & Grievance
  • Performance Management
  • Policy Recommendation
  • Salary and Benefits
  • Leaver Protocols
  • Compliance to regulations
  • Employee Relations
  • Leadership

But only choose the ones you can comfortably use and talk about

Hope this helps, and let us know how you get on :-)

I forgot to mention, companies like money (fact).. if you spin your presentation to say how you can reduce costs you'll probably get a big thumbs up, examples of this using my recruitment example above could be:
1) Analyse the cost of Employment Agencies (Savings of around £2000 per sucsessful candidate)
2) Analyse the cost of Job Ads (and are you getting a good enough return of applicants) (Get better investment / quality of candidate (better work quality, more productive, more money)
3) Even bolder: Can you go back to a manager and deny them access to employ a new person but spread the work out over several existing employees? (Savings: £Thousands per year! (but be careful with that one, you won't earn many friends if it's not implemented correctly)
