Dear friends,
Planning to design a HR visit to business locations of the organization.
The objectives are:
  • To have a touch point with all the employees working at different / remote locations
  • To build connectivity and visibility of Human Resources
  • Employee engagement
Kindly suggest what would HR include and discuss with employees during his/her visit to business locations.
Thank You

  • Make it much more informal and not to announce your visit upfront
  • Get along with people, may be try to have lunch in the same cafeteria and try to get the pulse
  • Suggest to arrive at proposals for various employee engagements, which they expect from company
  • Make them feel that you are there to understand their concerns, help them to add more value to business and thereby improve individual visibility

I echo Consultme, a focus group or a brown bag meeting would be effective, only once trust is built through the informal interactions. Listening mechanism needs reinforcement with continued communication. Hence, keeping the employees posted on the developments implemented from their feedback, is essential.
Frame questions at each level for the employees. Asking them about their jobs isn't enough. Here's an article from HBR, Read a Plant Fast <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) . This was implemented to know everything about a plant without asking anyone, any question. This is related to Strategy in Manufacturing and not entirely HR. However, it adds on to the acumen to understand them better. Request you to read it, while working on this project

If this is your first vist, it makes more sense to announce it

Let the employees know that you are coming and that you want to interact with them.

Set a schedule,

Meet the business head first, then with the managers (separately or as a group, depending on the requirement). Understand from them the problem they are facing with regard to hr. if possible and necessary, make a presentation on hr rules, regulations or things like disciplinary action, legal compliance ,etc. cover things that you already know they are affected by. Also make clear to the managers during your interaction what HR expects from them.

If you have a local hr team, meet them separately and discuss any issues that they have. Involve them in your meeting with business head and managers,

Ask local HR team or the business head to circulate a mail informing the employees of your visit and offer to keep an hour aside for anyone who has a problem to discuss. As consultme said, have lunch in the common cafeteria and interact with as many people as possible

Meet the supervisors and staff - preferably individually.

Feel the pulse and build the relationship.

Based on the situation and business of your organisation, you may consider discussing some of the points given below:-

1. Individual: - Get to know about the staff - his background, education, family – parents, siblings, spouse, children etc - hobbies, interests etc.

2. Accomplishments: Years of service of the employee in the Org, accomplishments/ achievements and his/ her journey to the current position.

3. Business: Discussion about the business – revenue, profit, products/ services, customers, general environment, working environment

4. Training Needs: Requirement of training on skills, business products, service etc

5. Objectives: Is he/ she willing to take higher responsibilities? What is he/she wanting to achieve in life and what support he/she requires from Org.

6. Support from HO: Whether there are any specific areas which require support from Head Office/ Depts

7. HR Support: HR support required on various issues including – compensation, incentives, privileges, leave, work life balance etc?

8. Any suggestion on - system / process that requires re-visiting.

Ensure that you study the dossier/ file of each staff, prior to your visit.
