Hi Rupesh,
From an HR point of view, you should first ensure that you have all the Policies, Rules and Regulations (PRR's) set out clearly and communicated to all employees.
This is the benchmark that you will need to work to and ensure all employees are fully aware of what and how the company expects of them.
Try and future proof the PRR's for this will help you as the company grows and expands.
Remember to ensure that each PRR is agreed and signed off by management before implementation.
I hope the above helps.
