Hr Manager
+5 Others

Hello Managers,
I am Ritika and I am working in a old manufacturing company in bangalore. There was no Hr department before. they have just started... But things are very challenging as people have accepted the old way of working and also not much support is there from the headquaters.... Also, most of the HR responsibilities were handled by Finance and Admin.. We have to wait for approvals and things dont seem to move forward...
Can you please suggest how to bring about changes here with not much budget alloted to HR department.?
Please help and give your valuable suggestions!!

Hello Ritika,
Same situation that I am passing through, however it's settled down at my end. At first, I would like to know your KRAs before giving any suggestions. If you can share it.
Further, what is your experience in HR?
My questions might sound weird but may help me to give better suggestion.

Dear Ritika,
It is obvious that in initial days you will not get cooperation from any one, specifically from Accounts & Finance department, since they were handled the some of the HR work. All the time they will search your mistakes. But things will go smooth, after some days.
Already i have faced the same situation in my present company & after 10 months 80% i got success.
Initially try to interact with all the HOD's and employees, try to build confidence in you. Try to understand about the organisation, hierarchic, behavior. Step by step collect documents from Accounts department related to PF files, ESIC files, PT Files and Wage registers. If you found any difficulty talk to finance person. If you find any difficulty talk to Director.
Hope this suggestion will work. For any help you may feel free to contact me 09934584191

Dear Ritika,

It definitely is a difficult task, but not impossible. In fact, this could turn out to be one of the best learning experiences of your professional life.

I can give you some generic suggestions, since we really don't know the organization and its policies and culture etc.

1. Do not use any confrontation style at all. Instead focus on building confidence and trust. This is easier said than done, and progress could be slow, but thats the only way to move forward.

2. Get support from top management. I am assuming that there is already some amount of support and vision since they have introduced a new HR department. The management has felt the need for HR , and hence they must have gone ahead.

3. Get clarity on what are the key expectations of the management in terms of HR deliverables. Do they want HR systems to be in place , grievances to be handled, better people to be recruited etc etc. Understand their key areas of concern with the current system. Put your thoughts together along with your colleague and draw up an action plan for achieving 3-4 key areas. Discuss and focus on these initially.

I would need to understand your situation thoroughly to be able to give concrete advise, You can call me at 022-42957577 if you wish to discuss more.

Hope this helps,

All the best

Hello Ritika,
Glad that Narendra covered it in my absence. I am pretty sure this attachment reads a lot and will help you to start with the initiatives.
My advise will match with this document and every step highlighted here will keep you engaged with multiple meetings and discussions with your existing staff, which will be worth enough to give you the passage in the existing tradition.
Wish you good luck and stay in contact!
