HR set up is a daunting task and involve many steps.
First step is to have a feel of the organization and start being acceptable to your employees.
Since you are talking about HR set up, so i am assuming that there is no HR presently in the organization.
You should also look at the practices which are followed normally, because even if there is no HR , there must be a set of HR practices which would have been being followed.
Next comes, preparation of literature such as policies, employee handbook, procedures, manuals etc. We can help you in this but ours is a paid service, in which you get all relevant literature customized to the needs of your organization. You can write us a mail to , if you need more info on that.
Once you have necessary literature in place, you start implementing that and updating that as you may require from time to time. Implementation and acceptance of policies depend upon how you handle it because normally it is faced with resistance on matters such as attendance, timeliness, leaves, discipline etc. and with welcome on matters such as salary realignment , motivation, employee welfare etc. It's like pampering and punishing at the same time. If you are able to pull that off , you will be a good HR manager in the end.
